About Tamera


Bio

Hi!
My name is Tamera. I teach and tutor in a wide variety of science courses and I have received Awards for Teaching and Leadership. In addition to content, I teach skills that help students study more effectively, retain the information, and improve their skill set in problem-solving, test taking, data analysis, and self-evaluation. These are skills that can be used in many courses and will increase confidence significantly.

Hi!
My name is Tamera. I teach and tutor in a wide variety of science courses and I have received Awards for Teaching and Leadership. In addition to content, I teach skills that help students study more effectively, retain the information, and improve their skill set in problem-solving, test taking, data analysis, and self-evaluation. These are skills that can be used in many courses and will increase confidence significantly.

I earned my undergraduate degree in Biology with a minor in Chemistry and a concentration in Environmental and Conservation Science from Shorter University in 1992 and earned a Master of Science in Biology with a concentration in Applied Environmental Microbiology from Georgia State University in 2014. My Georgia State Teacher Certification is broad field science with a gifted endorsement.

My teaching experience spans 11 years, encompassing six years as a high school classroom teacher, and two years as a high school online teacher. During my teaching career, I taught Biology, Physical Science, Physics, Anatomy and Physiology, Forensics, Earth Science, and Chemistry, and AP Chemistry. At Georgia State, I worked as a graduate teaching assistant, where I taught Biology lab for two years and Microbiology lab for three years. My research into pigment produced by fungi, antibacterial capability of plant extracts, and DNA analysis of soil bacteria from oil spill regions required a knowledge of and ability to apply the knowledge of a variety of science disciplines and emerging analytical technologies.

As a result of my education and experience, I tutor in many different science courses. I encourage questions and build skills that enable my students to develop as learners while learning specific content. My students tell me I am funny and make learning easy and interesting. I design my sessions to the strengths and learning styles of my students. Different strategies work for different students. Typically, students leave me with a greater sense of confidence and self-esteem as they develop a growth mindset that sets the stage for current and future success.

Botany

Botany is part of the high school Biology curriculum where I have several years teaching experience. One phase of my research as a graduate student was the analysis of antibacterial properties of plant extracts. Knowledge of major plant pathways is included in several areas of science with which I have been working.

Innovative , Patient, and Punctual

Tamera helped my daughter thru a VERY tough College Bio class. I was skeptical of this online tutoring format, but Tamera was EXCELLENT as advertised. It was actually tough for my daughter when class was successfully completed, she missed the weekly sessions with Tamera!

Knowledgeable and great to work with!

Tamera worked with my son who is a freshman in college. He was struggling with Chem I and not only has she helped him understand the basics she has improved his confidence. You can’t go wrong working with Tamera. We will definitely be using her again and again.
