About Michaela

Between my Bachelor's degree in Biology, my coursework in writing and Spanish, and my position as a writing/reading/speaking lab consultant, I know that I can offer a great tutoring experience for anybody of any age who is excited to learn.

My required coursework for my Biology degree ensured that I have expertise in not only Biology, but also, Ecology, Aquatic Biology, Biological Research Methods, Cell Biology, Anatomy, and Physiology. Additionally, I also studied Spanish for 8 total years (4 years in college), and took writing classes of various calibers including Advanced Grammar, Fiction writing, and Non-fiction writing.

My experience working as a consultant has given me the opportunity to work in a tutoring environment before, and has taught me how to best adapt tutoring styles to all different types of learners. In this position I not only worked with students in the Biology field, but in all fields of study. I also had the opportunity to work with many ESL students at various stages of learning the English language. This position gave me a lot of experience with college-aged students, however I am open and willing to tutoring any and all ages.

I have worked with many students of all education levels in the sciences. Additionally, I have taken a great deal of courses in this field and have a vast knowledge of these subjects.

My position as a consultant in a writing/reading/speaking lab ensured that I have the skills necessary to tutor students in both reading and writing. Additionally, I have taken classes in many writing fields and have a wide array of knowledge of both creative and academic writing.

Please contact me for tutoring opportunities in the Ames area. I have an open and flexible schedule and would love to help you reach your academic goals! Hope to hear from you soon!
