Metropolitan State University of Denver (Biology)
I am an enthusiastic educator with a strong desire to see all students succeed. I used to teach high school Biology, AP Biology, and Forensic Science in Colorado for five years. I have a Bachelor's degree in Biology and minored in Education at the Metropolitan State University of Denver. During my time as an educator in Colorado I developed the philosophy that all students have the capacity to succeed. I have developed various techniques and tools that I can share with prospective clients to not only help a student improve their science scores, but become a better student all around. These practices were taught to my own students and their parents back in Colorado. Education is a collective effort, and I am excited to be part of the WyzAnt team and have the opportunity help out students here in Southern California. Outside of education I enjoy creating my own pieces of artwork with acrylic paint and pastels. I also like to play video games in my free time or go for a bicycle ride. I also volunteer at the Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach in their education and husbandry departments.

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
During my student teaching I co-taught an anatomy class and made anatomy a large portion of my biology courses that I taught after receiving my teaching license. My AP biology class performed a comparative anatomy dissection at the end of the school year using preserved cats or rabbits, frogs, earthworms, fetal pigs, and perch.
