University of Iowa (Geoscience)
California State University, Northridge (Master's)
I am a graduating Master's Candidate in Geology at California State University, Northridge. I come from a long line of educators and education administrators in eastern Iowa, and they had a strong influence on my ability to understand people's varying methods of learning new material, especially material in areas of study that they are no accustomed to. I have taught several semesters of introductory geology (Geology of Planet Earth Lab), almost exclusively to non-geology majors, and they learned and seemed to really enjoy it. Throughout my time as an undergraduate and graduate student, I have found nothing more satisfying than to help other young people come to understand and love geology, the Earth, and science in general.
Geological investigations involve repetitive use of trigonometry and complex geometry, and forces one to think in three dimensions. I have completed 8 semester hours of calculus, as well as 4 semester hours in pre-calculus math.
I have one, almost two degrees now in the geological sciences. Each degree has been paired with an independently-driven thesis. Geologists may be considered the "jack of all trades" when it comes to the physical sciences, requiring fundamental knowledge of chemistry, physics, biology, environmental science, and climatology. My class list in this area includes: an entire Bachelors of Science and graduate classes in Geology, as well as AP Biology, Botany, Chemistry, Physics, and Earth Systems Science.
I always received compliments on how clear and concise my written works are. These include countless term papers, written exams, technical reports, two theses, as well as instructional materials for my Geology classes.
If you are having trouble with geology, or any other scientific field at the high school or undergraduate level, please contact me. My schedule is currently very flexible. I hope to hear from you!

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.
