About Doug

I graduated from Iowa State University with a major in Biology. I taught in many areas of science beginning in 1979. As a teacher in the Davenport Community School District, I taught at C.C.E. (a school for dropouts/ins), North High School, Wood Junior High School, and West High School. I also did some teaching night school (adult education and GED prep).
I majored in Biology. Areas I particularly like are: ecology, basic genetics, taxonomy, and ecology.
I spent many years as primarily an Earth Science teacher. I especially "enjoy" rocks and minerals, plate tectonics, volcanoes, weather, and space.
I am pretty good at math. I especially love the math involved in Chemistry, Physics and Genetics probability. I am not a fan of doing statistics.
I like to do and create puzzles (crosswords, whatzits, anagrams, hidden words, and puns). I would gladly include this as a part of tutoring.
I like approaching a subject from many angles. I like when a student when I see that a student really understands concepts and is able to apply them to their learning.

I have taught classes in Biology, Earth Science, Physical Science, General Chemistry, Zoology, Ecology/Environmental Science, Botany, Astronomy, and Meteorology. Math (especially Science-related math) is an area in which I excel. I have taught at both the junior high and high school levels. I have worked with students who had dropped out of regular school programs. I have worked with students in individualized classes and in adult and GED prep education classes.

I would like to find out what you want/need so that I can determine how I can help you in achieving your goals.
