About Tonya

I have over 20 years of experience teaching a variety of science subjects while meeting the unique needs of individual learners. My experience ranges from students with special needs to honors students in advanced placement courses. Regardless of a student's innate ability, it is my philosophy that every student can learn given the appropriate tools, environment, and encouraging facilitator. Methods to accomplish this includes an understanding of individual learning styles which allows for the tailoring of lessons to meet individual needs.

I hold certifications in Biology, Earth/Space Science, and Environmental Science. During my educational career I have taught middle school science, biology, earth science, astronomy, physical science, environmental and AP environmental science. I also have general knowledge of chemistry as well. I am well qualified to tutor in any sub-category of these sciences.

I have a special education certification with years of experience teaching students with a variety of learning, emotional, and behavioral needs. I understand the difficulty that some students have attending to tasks and utilize strategies that help maintain focus.

I am looking forward to not only assisting with a specific subject but teaching tools that will cross over to any subject matter. Understanding how your unique brain works will result in a new learning experience.
