About Kerissa

Hello! I am a recent transplant from Tampa, Florida to the triangle, where my spouse is pursuing a degree from Southeastern Seminary. Back in Florida, I graduated with a B.S. in Environmental Science and Policy and a B.A. in History and developed interactive science programs with the Museum of Science and Industry. While in college, I was a substitute teacher with Hillsborough County Public Schools and a research assistant at the University of South Florida Library, connecting students and faculty members with the resources needed to succeed.

I am excited to help students in this area love learning, whether the area of challenge is science, social studies, or even test prep. I love teaching and seeing that "a-ha" moment when everything makes sense. My passion is showing students how to connect the dots between components of an ecosystem or cause-effect relationships in history.

I have a well-rounded STEM background including biology, chemistry, geology, robotics, ecology, mathematics (including calculus). I know how to connect complex theories and models to everyday experience for illuminating analogies. My experience with hands-on, experimental science will help you or your student succeed in school, and carry the essential concepts on into the real world.

Send me a message to get to know me more. Schedule a lesson and we'll get to know one another even better!

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.

Biology

Biology is fun!

I recently graduated with a degree in Environmental Science and Policy, which means I took several biology courses. I earned credit for both Biology I (Cellular Processes) and II (Biological Diversity) at the college level.

Just a bonus if you're interested, I also love talking about plant identification and being outside!

Chemistry

I love chemistry!

As a part of my degree program for Environmental Science and Policy, I earned an "A" in Introductory chemistry, General Chemistry 1 & 2, a "B+" in Organic Chemistry 1 and an "A" in all my labs.

I want to make chemistry fun and something that will stick with you long after the test like a cation sticks with an anion! I was an instructor for the Museum of Science and Industry before I relocated to NC, so I know how to teach science in an interactive, memorable way.

Ecology

I lead environmental education programs in the Raleigh area and I am prepared to help students understand the theories behind how all things in nature are connected. I am experienced teaching environmental science to elementary through adults.

Excellent tutor

Kerissa made a real difference in my son's understanding of Chemistry and his grade has slowly improved. She is very patient and kind and I would recommend her for anyone looking for assistance.
