Boston College (Master's)
Hi! My name is Heather and I look forward to helping you succeed! I graduated Boston College in May 2013 with a B.S. in Biology. I have a strong foundation in biology and psychology coursework and during my time as an undergraduate student at BC I worked for two years as a teaching assistant in a yeast genetics research lab course. Additionally, I was a member of the College of the Arts & Sciences Honors Program, an extensive four year seminar program in literature, theology, and philosophy for the top 5% of the incoming freshman class.
I received a National Science Foundation Scholarship funding my Master of Education degree and graduated the Lynch School of Education at Boston College in May 2014 as a certified high school biology teacher. I also possess a TELL certificate that is a reflection of my experience and skills working with English Language Learners. I spent one year working as a student teacher and tutor at a high school in Boston, honing my instructional skills. This will be my third year working at a High School near Boston teaching 11th grade Biology.
With difficult science concepts, I am an expert on targeting problems that block understanding and breaking them down in a more visual and hands-on way. When teaching or tutoring I give frequent questions or checks that ensure students are engaged in their learning. With my success on standardized tests, I can share vital studying and test-taking skills. Finally, I can craft individualized lesson plans to improve your knowledge, ace your class, or improve your test scores!

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.
