About Brett

Hello! I am an AP Biology teacher at a High School in Lincolnshire, Illinois. I have been teaching science for 14 years. I am certified in "general science" and I am considered "highly qualified" to teach high school students in every scientific content area. I have taught College Prep Chemistry, Accelerated Chemistry, College Prep Biology, Accelerated Biology, Integrated Biology/Chemistry, and Careers in Healthcare and Medicine. I am also the school's summer STEM research coordinator. I have presented my teaching methods and strategies at the NSTA (National Science Teacher's Association), AP College Board, and NABT (National Association of Biology Teachers) national conferences. I am a five time winner of our end of the year "outstanding faculty" awards as voted on by our graduating seniors. In 2006, I was named Wal-Mart teacher of they year (Vernon Hills store).

I truly enjoy tutoring motivated students when it fits into my busy schedule. The most effective tutoring involves a one to two hour session in which the student engages in ACTIVE learning and review. We work through quizzes, tests, games, and other activities to ensure that the student is constructing knowledge and applying the knowledge to novel scenarios. I believe that my skill set and style of tutoring would best be suited to high school and college students. Mature middle school students looking for an edge could also benefit from my help.
