Bio

After getting my biology degree I found that I wasn't sure what I wanted to do in biology. However, one thing was certain, I liked to explain and teach. I had played volleyball for some time, so I began by coaching volleyball and eventually went back to school for my masters in science education.

After getting my biology degree I found that I wasn't sure what I wanted to do in biology. However, one thing was certain, I liked to explain and teach. I had played volleyball for some time, so I began by coaching volleyball and eventually went back to school for my masters in science education. I've been coaching volleyball for many years, and my most recent adventure was as a classroom teacher at a private school in Las Vegas. The classroom was great, except that I found that I prefer teaching students in an environment that depends on learning rather than attaining a certain grade as the goal. Tutoring is an environment where I can still share my love of learning with students without certain restrictions of a classroom of my own.

I have taught on both coasts of the U.S., in a variety of classrooms, as a volunteer, substitute, and full time teacher. I have taught and taken a variety of different science course including biology, earth science, astronomy, anatomy, genetics, ecology, and basic chemistry. I've had the opportunity to tutor middle and high school students, and have worked with college students and have been told I have a knack for making complicated concepts easier to understand. When we first meet I'd like to establish any expectations you have from me and let you know how I tend to work. While I like to base my tutoring off of questions specifically from the student, I can also provide entirely separate lessons and work for various topics if needed.

Please feel free to contact me to any questions you may have. I would be happy to speak with you about what I do as a tutor and if I am the right fit for your goals.

I love working with yarn. I have made projects ranging from hair accessories and hats to sweaters, scarves, and blouses. I love to work with different types of yarns and I have worked on all sizes of needles and hooks. I have made many projects using both knit and crochet, and I have taught both before to people of all ages.

Flute

I have been playing flute since I was 8 years old. I played throughout school and college and have continued to play into adulthood. I have worked with middle school aged students helping out in band class as they learn to play. I continue to work on my own playing with individual books ranging from pop to classical themes and would love to share my love of music with others!

Science

Anatomy,

Anatomy

I have a degree in biology and science education. In the past several years of teaching I spent a large part of my curriculum teaching anatomy and physiology. I have a knack for breaking down complex concepts and processes into easy to understand chunks and helping students find study methods that work for them.
Genetics,

Genetics

I have been teaching science for 7 years and a part of that curriculum has included genetics. I have used a variety of models to make genetics ideas easier to understand, these models include both physical and digital models. The history of the study of genetics, the molecular structure of DNA, and the different models used to explain how features are passed down are all topics I am familiar with and can extend from to teach genetics in a well rounded fashion.
Astronomy, Biology, Ecology, Physical Science

Martial Arts,

Martial Arts

I spent 4 years studying as a child and have picked the sport back up as an adult. I spent 3 years in Las Vegas studying with a variety of different teachers ranging from third to fifth degree level expertise. I am a stickler for technique, so that is what I prefer to concentrate on. My favorite aspects of taekwondo include form practice and power development.

Volleyball

Volleyball

I have been coaching volleyball for 15 years at various clubs around the U.S.. I have coached multiple ages ranging from 10 - 16 year olds in individual and groups lessons. I have a tendency to concentrate on individual skill development and am particularly good at teaching serving and passing skills. However, I also have a system to teach hitting, setting, as well as other skills important for the game.

GED

My teaching experience has allowed me to work with lots of different personalities and topics. The majority of my teaching is in science, but I've worked with students in math, reading, and writing as well. I have a college preparatory background, so I'm familiar with high school level curriculum.
