I am in my 10th year of teaching biology courses which have included multiple levels of biology, as well as Honors Anatomy & Physiology, Honors Genetics, and Environmental Science at the High School level and Principles of Biology, Principles of Anatomy, Human Biology and Biology 101 at the college level.

I am in my 10th year of teaching biology courses which have included multiple levels of biology, as well as Honors Anatomy & Physiology, Honors Genetics, and Environmental Science at the High School level and Principles of Biology, Principles of Anatomy, Human Biology and Biology 101 at the college level. I have 13 years of experience tutoring and doing home instruction for local students. My tutoring jobs started when I was in college, where I worked as a TA for several semesters. I then continued to tutor high school and middle school students after normal school hours once I was a teacher. I have done home instruction for many students and have been tutoring international students for the last several months.

I love to work with students one-on-one and find that tutoring is a very rewarding experience. Sometimes a student just needs to review material or get organized and something suddenly clicks and makes sense. As a teacher, I understand that students learn in many different ways. I personally am a visual and kinesthetic learner, so I try my best to always assess my students' learning styles and cater my tutoring sessions to them. I also enjoy making topics relatable to students, either through hands-on activities or analogies that they understand on a deeper level.

I have been teaching science (many different levels and courses) for many years and have a great knowledge base of general science and biological sciences. Science has always been my passion, starting from a young age. If there is something I am not sure of, I will research it and learn everything I can about it. Anatomy and biology are my favorite subjects, but as a science teacher, I have had to also pass several PRAXIS and standardized exams to get where I am today. Unlike many teachers who have their bachelor's degree in education, my 4-year bachelor's degree is actually in biology, meaning I had to take more science classes to meet graduation requirements.

I truly enjoy working with students to not only improve their grades, organizatio

Very Knowledge

She's very easy to understand, and explains things in a way that is easy for grasping. She's super smart and easy to work with. So far we have just gone over the properties of water a the different kind of bonds, but I have a much firmer grasp on the material now.
