Bio

My background is in middle school science. I am a National Science Foundation grant recipient for the development of "Introduction to Physical Science" (IPS). In general all of my teaching at this level was in the private school setting. I have taught introductory Sociology at the college level. As an undergraduate my initial major was Biology with thoughts of dental school to follow. I moved to the social sciences as athletic participation made it impossible to complete my science...

My background is in middle school science. I am a National Science Foundation grant recipient for the development of "Introduction to Physical Science" (IPS). In general all of my teaching at this level was in the private school setting. I have taught introductory Sociology at the college level. As an undergraduate my initial major was Biology with thoughts of dental school to follow. I moved to the social sciences as athletic participation made it impossible to complete my science course work to my satisfaction. My desire to tutor is based in the belief that all students can succeed if given the right opportunity to learn.

As a science teacher much of the advance course work entails a great deal of math. In this light, I helped write the curriculum for middle school sciences to include math skills needed for biology, chemistry and physics that followed.

Almost all of my career involved teaching physical science from elementary to high school levels. My advanced degree in Sociology has allowed me to develop a social science program for high school students and teach at the college level.

My goal is to make learning fun and to allow students move forward in their pursuit of academic excellence.
