About Tabitha

I LOVE school! I believe that all students can learn if given the proper tools to be successful. I am a high school science teacher with five years of teaching and tutoring experience. As a classroom teacher, I strive to make the topics that I teach fun and relatable for my students. Similarly as a tutor, I use a variety of strategies (for visual, auditory and hands-on learners) to explain the material so that you can better understand what you are learning. I have found that one-on-one instruction gives you a sense of ownership and an avenue to communicate your strengths and weaknesses with the material.

I have two Bachelors’ from the University of Georgia (one in Biology and another in Business) and a Master and Specialist degree from Mercer University. My favorite subjects include math, science and computer applications. I currently teach Biology and have taught and tutored other subjects such as algebra, chemistry and physical science. Since you (as a student) are living in an era of testing, I also incorporate test-taking strategies/tips into my instruction for tutoring.

The key to learning new concepts is to make it relatable to your life. I am confident that I can meet your individual needs and make learning enjoyable for you.

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.

Genetics

I have taken a Genetics course in college as a part of my Biology coursework. Also, there is a unit on Genetics that is a part of the Biology curriculum for the state of Georgia. I have taught this unit to my students using various teaching methods such as direct instruction, hands-on activities and experiments, having guest speakers and assigning research projects. Since Genetics is a topic that is very relatable to an individual's life, tutoring for this topic requires that the tutor makes it applicable to the life of the student. For example, when discussing punnett squares a student can explain how certain traits were passed from his parents.
