University of Delaware (Geology)
I have a BS in Geology, and have TA'd for several college level courses. I tutored for freshmen-level geology courses throughout my time at the University of Delaware. I also worked as a lab teaching assistant for several entry-level earth science courses. I have a lot of experience in public education and outreach, and have given tours, museum presentations, and informal talks about a variety of science related subjects. I write and manage a blog that teaches scientific topics using plain language. I also wrote a science education column for UD's student newspaper for a few semesters. I'm a good writer, a good speaker, and have a fair amount of computer experience. I believe that a lot can be learned when a student can be engaged and interested in a topic, and will work with you to find a way to make the subject accessible and relatable to your life.
I might be a little unconventional in my "lesson" style, and I don't have much tutoring experience yet, but sometimes unconventional is what we need to seek out to succeed. I'm a very open person, so feel free to ask any other questions you have!
I can be flexible on student age, subject matter, lesson scheduling, and format. Never hesitate to get in touch with me and see if we can work sometime out to help you succeed!

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.
