North Carolina State University (Biology and Sci. Ed)
I am a recently retired high school and middle school science teacher with 30+ years of experience with the Rowan-Salisbury School System. I graduated from North Carolina State University with a double major in Biology and Science Education. My teaching experience consists of 7th and 8th grade Science at the middle school level while teaching Biology (regular and honors), Marine Science and Earth Science at the high school level. I also taught 8th grade Mathematics in summer school for 10 years.
I enjoy watching the light go on as students understand the material and I have experience working with computer-based instruction, as the Rowan-Salisbury School System has gone to a 1-to-1 computer-to child format in the high schools.
Sports are a passion and coaching was something that I excelled at and loved. While teaching at the middle school, I coached basketball, baseball, little league and YMCA youth sports. At the high school, I was the assistant tennis coach.
I have 30+ years of experience with the middle school and high school science curriculum. In that time, I always believed in the hands-on approach to learning the material. If you tell a student about a topic, they may remember a little. Show him/her and s/he remembers more. Let him/her experience it hands on and it is ingrained in his/her memory.
I believe that all students can learn and expect them to do so. I have experience teaching all types of students from AIG to EC and relate well to all types of learning styles.

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 a Biology degree and a Science Education degree from North Carolina State University.
I have been a science teacher and coach for the past 30 years.
I taught high school Biology and Honors Biology for the past 4 years at East Rowan High School.
I still have my lesson plans, materials and videos for the high school Biology curriculum.
