Hi! I am currently a graduate student getting my Master's of Art in Teaching, with the goal of becoming a secondary science teacher. I currently have my Bachelor's of Science in Ecology. Since graduating, I have realized just how much I love teaching and getting others excited about learning which is why I am going back to school, and tutoring!
I have worked as a teacher's aide working individually with students in elementary school. The subjects I most helped students with were reading and math. I am currently working as a tutor for a company in San Diego and work with both boys and girls in a wide variety of subjects, but most have math and reading comprehension. My students typically raise at least two letter grades after working with me. I have come to love seeing that "Aha!" moment on faces when something finally makes clicks. One of the most rewarding experiences you can have in life is seeing the exact moment when something that has never made sense before suddenly makes sense to someone.
I am a hard working and dedicated individual who believes every subject can be fun and easy to learn, if it's presented correctly. I understand everyone has a different learning style and I will do everything I can to find out what works best for you.
Learning is a life long process and I look forward to learning with you! Hi! I am currently a graduate student getting my Master's of Art in Teaching, with the goal of becoming a secondary science teacher. I currently have my Bachelor's of Science in … Read more
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.
I have taken several public speaking courses in high school and college, and have been giving public presentations as a job for the past two years at the Texas State Aquarium, Sea World San Diego, and the San Diego Zoo Safari Park. The speeches range from 15 minutes to 1 hour and are given to a variety of age groups and different groups sizes from only a few to almost 1,000. These jobs have given me experience writing and developing different presentations and the ability to quickly modify speeches based on the type and size of the audience.
During the past three years I have worked at the Texas State Aquarium, Sea World San Diego, and am currently working at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park. While working at these facilities it was my responsibility to teach people about animal characteristics and classification along with their behaviors. In addition, I have taken several specialized biology college courses dealing with specific animals including Ornithology, Entomology, Limnology, and Animal Behavior.
