About Priscilla


Bio

I love to help students learn, especially if they want to improve, or have lost confidence. I will show you how to understand biological science or English and writing. I will show how to study these subjects, and how to prepare for tests. I will help you organize your assignments, and assist you with your work.

I will show how to study these subjects, and how to prepare for tests. I will help you organize your assignments, and assist you with your work.

I have credentials in biology and English. I have been tutoring online since the pandemic, and tutored more than 10 years in person before the lockdown. One interesting fact about me is that I was in the Navy, and steered a ship in the Pacific Ocean!

I have taught biology and environmental science in Montgomery County Public Schools. Since taking early retirement to raise my daughter, I tutor from home online. I love seeing my students ’get it,” and succeed. I I graduated with highest honors in biology in and received an accelerated teaching credential in biology from Montgomery College.

I worked as an English Composition Specialist at Richard Montgomery High School. I loved helping students learn how to improve their writing. I was also the Writing Center Coordinator, assisting students with research papers. I have been tutoring English, grammar and writing since taking early retirement to raise my daughter. I love seeing students improve, and several have won writing awards. I graduated cum laude in English, and received my second teaching credential in English. I know how to teach English to math and science people, because I am a math and science nerd too. I come from a family of English teachers!

I cannot wait to improve your abilities in the biological sciences or in English and writing. Don’t be afraid. With determination you can do well. I will teach you the tricks of how to study these subjects, how to understand them better, and how to ace them. A passion of mine is climate change. I am combining my biology and writing backgrounds to get a Master’s in environmental management. If I can succeed, you can too!
