About Holly

Greetings! I am currently employed with Burke county public schools as a high school biology and physical science teacher and have access to the North Carolina curriculum requirements for each grade level. I teach at the alternative school where I see many students who have educational gaps from younger grades. I believe most students are equally capable of learning with extra attention within an environment best suited to the individual.
It is my goal to help students excel to their unrealized potential before they are sent to the alternative school by filling in educational gaps and helping them realize the best educational environment that will allow their brain to absorb the information they are expected to learn.

I have a BS degree in Premed Biology. I teach science courses, which apply math in real life scenarios. Students who don't understand the applications of math fail to be motivated to learn and comprehend math. I will work to make math fun and comprehensible using real life scientific discovery.

Einstein was unable to speak until 4 yrs old and his educators believed he would not amount to anything. He is living proof that there is a spark of genius in all of us! I look forward to meeting the scientific discoverers of tomorrow!

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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.

Algebra 1

I have taught in the NC public school setting for 3 years and have developed a hands on method of teaching many science and match concepts while incorporating technology for more abstract concepts. I earned a GPA of 3.94 while obtaining a BS degree in Premed Biology and scored substantially higher than required on the Praxis exams. I know the essential standards that NC requires all students to know before taking their algebra EOC which is the same content that I will use to develop tutoring curriculum. I have had success tutoring high school students in the prealgebra and algebra content.

Anatomy

I have taught biology in the public school setting for 3 years and have developed a step by step process to understand terminology and concepts while incorporating technology for more abstract concepts. I have some anatomy and physiology tutoring experience from College where I helped several students better understand anatomical and physiological processes within the body.

Biology

I have taught biology in the public school setting for 3 years and have developed a method of teaching many biological concepts by schematically building on elementary observations and understandings while incorporating technology for more abstract and fresh concepts. I know the essential standards that NC requires all students to know before taking their biology EOC, which is the same content that I will use to develop tutoring curriculum.

Chemistry

I incorporate technology as visual aid such as video and digital application when teaching chemistry as many chemistry concepts are difficult to perceive to those who has never had it introduced to them. While these types of technology proves helpful, in order to understand the content, a foundation in terminology and background information is first assessed and discussed.
Besides understanding the foundational concepts of chemistry, there is also a lot of math involved in which I use a more applicable technique to understand what the calculations represent in order for students to fully comprehend the math.

Elementary Math

I understand and incorporate teaching techniques to improve learning in the elementary grade level, where a good educational foundation is imperative for long-term educational success. I have tutored elementary students in the past and have had great success with improving their grades and most importantly their understanding of the content. I enjoy making math and science relative for the students so they apply what they have learned instead of memorize a set order of calculations.

Elementary Science

I am a licensed high school science educator in NC. I understand and incorporate teaching techniques to improve learning in the elementary grade level, where a good educational foundation is imperative for long term educational success.
I have tutored elementary students in the past and have had great success with improving their grades and most importantly their understanding of the content. I enjoy making math and science relative for the student so they apply what they have learned as they discover the world around them.

Microbiology

I have 1 yr of experience in the microbiological field where routine analysis were made to determine the condition of samples to be used in medical situations. During this 1 yr. I was required to culture and count microbial populations as well as investigate excessive microbial populations. This experience allows me to apply real life scenerios to instructed content.

Physical Science

I have taught physical Science in the public school setting for 3 years and have developed a hands on method of teaching many science concepts while incorporating technology for more abstract concepts. I enjoy helping students realize the physical science part of life they have been living in and learning about since they were old enough to explore.
I know and teach the essential standards that NC requires all students to know before taking their Physical Science Final exams which is the same content that I will use to develop tutoring curriculum as well.

Prealgebra

I am best qualified to teach prealgebra given my math and science background. I have tutored prealgebra content by first making the content applicable to the student through scientific discovery and then utilizing technology to practice the concepts. Through this, students better understand the process and purpose of the mathematical concepts used to calculate, manage, and compare scientific data.

Probability

While I have yet to teach or tutor probability, I am familiar with the content and as a certified NC educator I feel confident I can make the content applicable to the individual student while building on former mathematical schematics to better prepare students for their course load.
