I have taught many Introduction to Physical Geology Lab courses, not only as an undergraduate student at Guilford College, but was also hired to teach courses at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro while enrolled as an undergraduate at Guilford College.
I taught two to three lab courses in geology each school semester while a graduate student at East Carolina University. Having received my M.S. degree with a concentration in sedimentology, I worked with a local environmental consulting firm.
In 1994 I registered and passed the individual exam to become certified as a Licensed Professional Geologist (LPG) through The North Carolina Board for the Licensing of Professional Geologists. In 2000, I taught a few semesters as an adjunct geology professor at George Mason University in Fairfax, VA before relocating to a different part of the country.
I went back to graduate school in 1997 for an art degree, and in 2000 graduated with an M.F.A. in Ceramic Arts. I have taught many classes and weekend workshops in ceramics, but I have missed teaching The study of geology as well. Not only will this give me the opportunity to work one-on-one with students, but will also allow me to express once again my desire to work as a geology instructor and tutor.
I am an energetic instructor who enjoys sharing what has been passed on to me by my mentors. It is my goal to make the subject matter interesting and fun, thereby making the subject matter "memorable". I look forward to honoring my past instructors by following their unique methodology of teaching.
I look forward to working with anyone at any level who may need tutoring with their geology/earth science course load. I came from an undergraduate school with a student body that totalled 1300. Some of my geology classes were composed of 3 students. I would take some summer classes at other, much larger universities that were composed of upwards of 100 students. It was under these classroom circumstances that I realized, and learned never to take for granted, the importance of a one-on-one relationship with a professor and or tutor. I am very comfortable working closely with an individual student's lessons. I believe that I have much patience and understanding to each individual's level of understanding of the subject matter. I have taught many Introduction to Physical Geology Lab courses, not only as an undergraduate student at Guilford College, but was also hired to teach courses at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro while enrolled as an undergraduate at Guilford College.

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 a M.S. In geology from East Carolina University. I have taught numerous physical geology lab courses; including, courses taught as an adjunct professor at George Mason University. I worked as an environmental geologist for a consulting firm, where I worked and was licensed as a professional geologist (P.G.).
