About Penny

I retired after teaching High School Biology, Anatomy, Environmental Science, & Ecology for 25 years. I now teach/tutor part-time. I have recently discovered that I really enjoy working with younger students aged 5-12. I have worked as a substitute teacher in Elementary schools for the last 2 years since retiring and I love it!. The younger children bring a different energy to the classroom that I really enjoy. I also have experience with Home schooling and teach some on-line classes to Chinese students that are learning English.
One of my favorite things about teaching online is the personal connections I make with students due to the one-on-one nature of the tutoring sessions. I get to "visit" students in their homes while I am in my "classroom" in my basement! The parents are often in the room with their child or close by and can monitor the sessions. This makes the on-line sessions safe, convenient and affordable.

I teach students to use and understand math concepts in a practical way. Since I used mathematics often in my job as a science teacher, I tend to use problems and activities that students can see relate to their daily lives

I have a great deal of experience teaching biological concepts to different types of learners. I try to make learning fun, interactive, and interesting for the students. I have years of experience working with state standards & tests.

I like kids! I want to help them achieve and enjoy learning. I love to read and encourage children to read every day. I make science user friendly and am able to simplify difficult materials into manageable activities. I see science everywhere so it is easy for me to incorporate it into daily lessons.

I would love to meet you and your student. Please contact me to set up a day to begin learning together! Teacher Penny
