Florida State University (Environmental Sci.)
A lifelong passion for teaching others about the weather and science led me to seek a degree in Environmental Science with a long-term goal of being an on-air meteorologist involved in the community. As an honors student all through high school and college (GPA 3.306), I taught ESOL to recent US immigrants for a year and commonly helped friends and family with all manner of schoolwork, especially math and science. I have always enjoyed teaching and sharing knowledge with others, and especially enjoyed personally and intellectually developing through helping people.
While attending FSU I interned at WCTV-CBS under on-air meteorologists who helped me develop my public speaking, communication and teaching skills, as part of the job includes reaching out to elementary and other public schools to teach children about science and math and foster in them an interest in these subjects. I also was on live TV as a meteorologist and news anchor for two years furthering my public speaking and communication skills.
Since receiving my Bachelor's from Florida State University in 2013, I have become heavily involved in the community. In 2014, I taught weather and basic science to a group of 30 4-8 year olds at Glazer Children's Museum, joined the Volunteer Committee for the Tampa Bay Association of Environmental Professionals and Keep Tampa Bay Beautiful, an environmental action group.
More recently in 2015 and 2016 I have become involved with volunteering for the Sierra Club, speaking at Pinellas County Board of County Commissioners meetings as an environmental advocate and mobilizing other members and people across the state to take political action, and for Tampa Bay Watch working with people of all ages to increase community awareness of (and solve) current environmental issues. I am also an active member of professional networking groups such as the Florida Ground Water Association and Florida Native Plant Society. I hope to instill in young people a love for science and the environment so that our planet will be better cared for in the years to come.
I have taken two semesters each of Trigonometry, Precalculus and Calculus, in both high school and college, and have also taken Statistics in college. Most science courses in college were heavily involved with mathematics, including advanced Chemistry, Physics, and Environmental Science courses such as Oceanography and Geology.
A lifelong love for science and weather has led me to expand my knowledge continuously inside and outside of school settings. In high school, I took AP Environmental Science and received the highest overall score possible on the college-level exam. In college, a majority of my 128 credit hours were from science courses, including Meteorology, Geology, Oceanography, Chemistry, Physics, Biology and Nutrition Science courses, Climate Change, Alternative Energy, Coral Reef and Ecology seminars, and Science lectures including Environment of Florida, Science in the 21st Century, Geologic Hazards, and Earth Systems.
I love helping others learn about science and math and am excited to have a platform with which to do so! I try to keep the mood a little less serious and a little more fun, as learning can be stressful - I remember some long nights studying in college! I am free during weekday mornings, afternoons and early evenings.

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.
