I'm currently a PhD student at UGA studying quantitative fisheries science. This is a discipline that relies heavily on science, ecology, math, statistics, and technical computer skills. I really enjoy this work and am excited to share my knowledge and skills with those who are seeking to further themselves in any of these subject areas. I have taught in diverse settings, an attribute I think is beneficial for working with diverse groups of people with different learning styles. I have taught environmental education at a residential experiential learning school in New Hampshire. The areas taught were based around the natural sciences, and the age groups we worked with ranged from middle through high school. I have also worked as a Training Specialist for NOAA's Fisheries Observer Program. In this capacity I was responsible for training groups of people (15-30) in all aspects related to work as a sea-going biologist on commercial fishing vessels. Topics included data collection, sampling, mathematics, biology, ecology as well as species identification. I helped to develop and teach various random sampling techniques which required use of geometry, algebra, and general mathematics to accurately estimate catch weights.
After my teaching positions, I moved into more research oriented scientific positions; however, I continued to teach in different capacities. I developed and taught workshops on computer software programs and technical tools related to scientific research. Some of these workshops included SAS and SQL. I developed training protocols to help our program meet natural resource mandates, and travelled throughout the East Coast of the United States holding training sessions for biologists employed by our program to train on new protocols and to test proficiency in existing protocols. Experiences combined, I have several years of teaching and am always seeking out new opportunities to share knowledge and to learn from others in the process.

Tiffany does a great job of explaining the material in an easy to understand way. She's always prompt and is also very patient. Would not hesitate to call on her again for help.
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 developed relational databases as well as data entry forms using VB in the Access program. I program using Access' Jet SQL as opposed to using some of the drop-down menus as I think it affords the user greater flexibility, control and transferability.
I worked as a database developer (not administrator) for a government agency for about 3.5 years. I developed large relational databases, created reports and data management routines using Oracle. I have taught workshops to co-workers on using Oracle and SQL.
I have a 200-hr Vinyasa certification from Frog Lotus Yoga in North Adams, MA and a prenatal yoga certification from Asheville Yoga Center in Asheville, NC. I have been practicing for over 10 years.
