About Dominique

I discovered my love of teaching by participating in a slew of science outreach opportunities during graduate school. As I completed my PhD I took on various opportunities to work with students of all ages, trying to share my passion for ocean conservation and the sciences in general. I took on more formal teaching roles as a middle school science teacher and as a visiting professor of environmental studies.

My strengths lie in explaining complex concepts in words that fit the understanding level of student that I am working with. I like to use humor to put students at ease, find ways to make the information relatable to the lives of my students, and working to find ways to re-explain concepts to my students until they show they understand our topic for the day. I believe that it is extremely important for students to learn about the interconnectedness of the natural world, and enjoy helping them make them make new discoveries and reach a higher level of understanding.

I completed my PhD in Marine Biology and Fisheries. I have a strong foundation in the biological sciences (Marine Biology, Fisheries, Ecology, Physiology, Genetics, Cell Biology, etc). I have conducted various ecological experiments throughout the coastal regions of Florida, which helps strengthen my abilities in the applied sciences as well.

I think all tutoring sessions should be uniquely tailored to the student and their educational goals. My goal is to help you succeed, and I'll provide the framework to help you meet your goals.

I went from a 40 on my last quiz to a 92 on my midterm. All because of her. Thank you
