University of Michigan (Toxicology)
University of Michigan (Master's)
Associate in Scientific and Technical Communication (Other)
I am a graduate from the University of Michigan's School of Natural Resources and the Environment. My background is in ecology, toxicology, scientific and technical communication, and environmental informatics. I have experience with the ACT, SAT, and GRE exams and can help you, your son or daughter prepare for these exams. I find the best way to prepare for standardized tests is to become familiar with the format and types of questions on these exams.
I have previous experience teaching groups of children when I was a volunteer for the children's service at the Zen Buddhist Temple. This involved creating a curriculum each week and engaging the children in fun activities while they learned. My volunteer work also includes serving as a tutor for Women Blessing Women--an organization that helps women obtain jobs, safe housing, and their GED. My role consisted of teaching them the math section of the GED. I accomplished this by working through the problems with them at first, having them practice on their own, examining their work, and then focusing on areas that still needed more practice.

I charge an extra $15/hour if you're 15.1-22.9 miles from my home. Between 23-30 miles away, I charge an extra $25/hour. This charge is to help with the added travel mileage to reach my students.
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.
I have taken four semesters of anatomy and physiology both at the undergraduate level and at the graduate level. My graduate level courses focused on pathophysiology and toxicology. I took these courses at the University of Michigan's School of Public Health.
Most of my field work has been in ecology. I find learning ecology in the field is the best way to understand the key principles of ecology. I also have experience teaching it in the classroom as well.
I have experience working with children in K-6th as a camp counselor and as a leader of the Children's Service at the Zen Buddhist Temple in Ann Arbor.
I have also worked with children in first and second grades to help them in math and reading. This was part of a "youth to youth" program, where older students acted as mentors to younger students and helped them in their studies.
I have taken a few study skill seminars and test prep courses to help improve my study and testing taking abilities. With these experiences, I believe I can help you, your son or daughter improve on test taking and studying!
