About Heather

I'm Heather and my passion is encouraging science learning and critical thinking.

I graduated with a bachelors in Biology from Georgia Tech and have worked at a local university since teaching English in China. My goal is not only teaching the subject, but encouraging an interest in learning and exploration of the subject. In the past, I've taught independent high school biology and chemistry courses, using various sources to structure the curriculum. As I mentioned above, I've also taught English as a Second Language and have TEFL certification.

My preference is to start with the text that the student is currently using, then branch out to other sources, so as to fill potential learning gaps and provide supplementary information that may engage the student more thoroughly in the topic. All I request is that your student be open to working hard and learning as much as they can.

I look forward to hearing from you!

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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.

Biology

Degree in biology, extensive tutoring in high school biology

Chemistry

I have tutored a number of students in introductory AP and honors chemistry. My background is in biology (and chemistry) by way of Georgia Tech.

Geometry

I have extensive math experience and some tutoring in geometry.

Organic Chemistry

My experience with chemistry goes through biochemistry, including two semesters of organic chemistry. This includes experience with organic chemistry lab work. My background with biology also included a large amount of focus on chemistry and organic chemical reactions.

Tennis

For the last 7 years, I've acted as the tennis instructor for a camp for kids with diabetes. As a teen, I played tennis in leagues and in tournaments, as well as a year of junior college. My skills are more applicable to beginners and young learners, but I'm open to acting as a hitting partner for more advanced players.

Helpful and Knowledgeable

My son had five sessions with Heather. Heather is the "cream of the crop." He felt that her explanations and examples "made sense." In just a few short weeks his grade went from a D to a B! That, in itself, speaks volumes! We highly recommend Heather. A God send for our family.
