About Fiona

I'm originally from Australia, but have lived in the United States for almost 19 years.

I'm curious about the world and love learning, and teaching!

I think children and adults lose interest in studying because they're bored, weary from lack of understanding, and/or they don't see a practical application of the learning in their own lives, either currently or in the future. It's wonderful to see the light turn on in their minds when they not only 'get' the subject matter, but they start to have hope and a vision for their future.

I was a 4.0 student of Psychology, and Biology, and I excelled at English, World History, and Anatomy.

I love the Sciences, because they're the gateway to self-understanding and an appreciation of the complexities of our internal and external world. History is wonderful for understanding the human race - it's darkness and it's light. And English allows you to jump headfirst into some of the most exquisite literary works and transform your inner world!

If you want learning combined with fun and great conversation, I'm the tutor for you. Good grades are so much easier to get when you enjoy the subject matter and I can unlock that for 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.

Anatomy

I studied Anatomy in both high school and college, with consistently excellent grades. I'm completely fascinated by it as a science because you can never, ever be bored by it. Just when you think you know as much as you can about a certain system, you realize there's always more to know. Anatomy is an adventure!

Biology

I studied Biology in both high school and college, and was a 4.0 student in college. I'm fascinated by it as a science because it touches on so many different areas - physiology and botany, to name a few. You can never be bored with this subject!

English

I was an English honor roll student in high school. Words are beautiful, and words used well can open up parts of our minds and hearts we never knew existed.

I'm also very driven in the appropriate use of good grammar. It seems that it's not as important as it once was, but poor grammar can change the entire meaning of a sentence, so correct grammar deserves consideration.

Psychology

I studied Psychology in college and was a 4.0 student. It's a fascinating subject because it forces you to look at yourself more closely, and hopefully, make positive changes. I love that its conclusions are both quantifiable and qualifiable, but it also allows room for further exploration of the mind which doesn't quite fit a paradigm.
