About Shelby

My name is Shelby, and I am science teacher. I teach biology and integrated science. I have my B.S. in Biology and a M.A. in Education. I have spent time doing research in entomology, not only working in KY, but also training with experts in six museums in five countries including the British Natural History Museum.

I have tutored many students over the last 10 years in the following areas: biological sciences, evolution, general biology, entomology, botany, general chemistry, mathematics, Spanish, writing, public speaking, GED preparation, English, and history. I have also spent time reviewing papers for many friends and colleagues (including grammar corrections for international colleagues). I have gained experience teaching children about insects and tutoring elementary and middle school students in science, math, English, geography, Spanish, and Social Studies.

Both of my parents are teachers, and I developed a passion for educating others at a very young age. Nothing is quite as exciting as witnessing the moment when the light bulb goes on. I believe that everyone is capable of learning when excitement is created, and a subject is simplified to each student. No two students are the same or necessarily learn in the same way.

I am looking forward to the chance to help you learn!

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.

Biology

I have a B.S. in Biology and M.A. in Education, and I am a biology teacher.

Botany

I am a high school science teacher with a B.S. of Biology and a focus in botany. I have worked for and done research with the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture and the University of Kentucky.

Genetics

I am currently finishing up my Master's degree in Entomology. Specifically, I study systematics. This includes a great deal of genetics and molecular work as evolution is driven by genetic changes. I have taken genetics classes during undergraduate and graduate school. I have both classroom and practical experience with both subject matter, applied research, and analysis. I have experience with both traditional and next generation sequencing techniques.

Great tutor! — This semester while at UK I was really struggling with Biology, I found Shelby and sent her a request for Biology help and she responded right away.
