About Heather

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 4th 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!


My relevant test scores are below,
SAT Reading-800, SAT Writing-800, SAT II Biology-800
AP Biology-5, AP English Literature and Composition-5,
AP English Language and Composition-5

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.
