University of NC at Asheville (Biology)
I was born to teach! I have 14 years of experience teaching 9th-12 grade Physical Science, Earth Science, Biology, Chemistry, and Physics. I have also tutored students in a variety of subjects, and have even taught drum lessons. A musician and nature lover, I enjoy helping students make connections between the text book and the world around them. Always ready with a sense of humor, there is nothing better that helping a student learn material in a way that makes sense to them as an individual.
In my free time I am a devoted husband, father, musician, artist, and animal lover.
My 14 years of experience teaching students with a range of learning styles and backgrounds has provided me with the flexibility and skills to adjust to the pace and needs of any individual learning. I like to make learning fun and interesting. Working hard does not have to feel like hard work.

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 which required me to take a 300-level semester of Genetics, and earned an A in this class. I have taught Biology over the course of 14 years in a NC Public School which required me to include teaching Genetics. Genetics and Evolutionary Process are topics of special interest to me.
