About Jessica

I have recently graduated from Texas State University in San Marcos, Texas with a master's degree in biology. I have only tutored acquaintances informally, although I am confident that I have the skills to tutor under more formal circumstances. I was on the Dean's List every semester of graduate school. I love learning, particularly about science. If I was independently wealthy, I would stay in school indefinitely, learning as much as I could, simply for the sake of knowledge and the social dynamics of matriculation.

I have a profound love and respect for nature. It is my hope that one day I will work in conservation and ecosystem management. I strongly believe that those of us with a scientific background have a responsibility to communicate our knowledge to others, particularly about the urgency to employ sustainable practices for all of humanities natural resources. The first leg of that journey begins with helping others to understand fundamental concepts in science. My enthusiasm, passion and knowledge of science makes me feel that I will be able to effectively communicate scientific concepts to those individuals that may have difficulties with the material.

I have loved nature and science since I was a small child. I love taking about nature and science to anyone who will listen. It would be my pleasure to teach scientific concepts to anyone who is having difficulties understanding. It is my belief that fear of almost anything comes from a lack of understanding, but once one acquires knowledge on that fearful, mysterious thing, that fear is replaced with wonder, respect, and potentially love.

In addition to being a biology tutor, I think I would be a great English tutor simply because I earned high grades in Literature, Vocabulary and Writing classes as an undergraduate. I also made excellent grades on my papers in graduate school. As a side note, I can and have tutored basic Spanish classes. I am also quite proficient in math through college level algebra.

My transcripts and references are available on request.

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.

Algebra 1

I have a master's degree in biology, which requires one to be proficient in math. I did very well in all of my math classes. I feel confident that I can assist others in learning basic concepts of elementary math and algebra.

Anatomy

I have a master's degree in biology. I have taken many courses that have included the anatomy of humans as well as other animals. Many of these classes were redundant in that they covered the same or similar anatomical lessons as previous classes. Therefore, I was exposed to anatomical lessons regularly and repeatedly. Repetition is how I learn. I am very confident in this subject matter

Biology

I have a master's degree in biology. The majority of my classes were field-related, such as ornithology, Mammalogy, herpetology, and natural history of vertebrates. I have also had some technical classes, such as wildlife management, wildlife management techniques and animal behavior. I retain a good understanding of the basic biological concepts that I learned in introductory biology courses. I feel confident I can effectively assist others in learning biological concepts.

Ecology

I have a master's degree in biology. The majority of my classes were field-related, such as ornithology, Mammalogy, herpetology, and natural history of vertebrates. I have also had some technical classes, such as wildlife management, wildlife management techniques and animal behavior. All of these classes had some component of ecology. I retain a good understanding of the basic biological concepts that I learned in introductory biology courses. I feel confident I can effectively assist others in learning biological concepts.

Elementary Math

I have a master's degree in biology, which requires one to be proficient in math. I did very well in all of my math classes. I feel confident that I can assist others in learning basic concepts of elementary math and algebra.

English

I have a master's degree in biology. This degree requires a substantial amount of writing. I made excellent grades on all of my papers. As a undergraduate, I also did very well in vocabulary development, literature, and exposition courses.

Zoology

I have a master's degree in biology. The majority of my classes were field-related, such as ornithology, Mammalogy, herpetology, and natural history of vertebrates. I have also had some technical classes, such as wildlife management, wildlife management techniques and animal behavior. I retain a good understanding of the basic biological concepts that I learned in introductory biology courses. I feel confident I can effectively assist others in learning biological concepts.
