About Heather

I am originally from Boston, graduated from Syracuse University in 2012, and moved down to Dallas four years ago to teach in the inner-city. low income schools. I have been teaching middle school and high school Biology as well as AP Biology for the last four years, which I have fallen in love with. I work very hard to make sure my students pass the Biology state tests and the AP Biology test, and have had a very high success rate. I try and make Biology Fun and exciting, and relate it to every day life and whats currently going on in the world. I have a passion for working with pre-teens and teenagers, as this is the age where students are discovering themselves, growing into young adults and learning the skills they will need for college and the rest of their lives. Even though this is my passion, I do have many clients who are adults and this is always fun and refreshing.

This year I have moved back to southern NH and decided to go back to school myself, put teaching on hold, and take tutoring up full time. This allows me the time to help students during the week, especially those who are home schooled. I particularlly like working with students who are chronically ill and cannot attend school. In those cases, I can tutor/teach all subjects and spend extensive time preparing lessons that cater to each student.

I enjoy a challenge and am very good at working with individuals that are truly struggling with different subjects. I have never given up on a student and I don't plan on starting.
I have a lot of experience working with individuals with Autism, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, and Dyslexia, as I am Dyslexic myself. I understand the struggles these individuals face and know how to help these students work around their learning hurdles and excel.

Please contact me to learn more about me and to set up a lesson. My schedule is flexible and I am will to meet where ever is easiest for you. I truly enjoy and take pride in my practice and would love to work with you!

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.
