About Erica

I am a graduate student at New Mexico State University. I'm pursuing a Master's degree in Physical Anthropology, with a focus on primate evolution. I basically research, write, and edit for a living, and am always excited to put those skills to use.

I gained my first teaching experience as a Writing tutor in the Student Success Center at Dona Ana Community College, where I worked from 2012-2013. This was a wonderful experience for me; while I often assisted students with assignments from English classes, I also got the opportunity to proofread writing assignments from virtually every subject offered. Since 2013, I have been teaching a weekly general credit science lab for undergraduate students at New Mexico State University. This has solidified my love of teaching. Helping students improve classroom performance and think critically about the material they are learning is extremely rewarding.

My academic interests are primarily focused on evolutionary biology. Throughout the course of my academic career, I have taken a number of science courses, and always make a point of remembering what strategies did and did not help me understand the complex material I was presented with.

Please contact me if you would like more information. I am willing to work with your schedule wherever possible. I look forward to hearing from 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.

Anthropology

I received a bachelor's degree in Anthropology from New Mexico State University in 2013. While I focused on physical anthropology, my program required coursework in all four fields of Anthropology. I graduated with a 3.8 GPA in my major. I am currently pursuing a Master's degree in Anthropology at New Mexico State University.

Archaeology

My undergraduate degree is in Anthropology, and I am pursuing a Master's degree in Anthropology. As such, I have taken a number of undergraduate and graduate archaeology courses, including Introduction to Archaeology, Archaeology of Religion, Faunal Analysis, and Archaeological Theory. I also participated in an archaeological field school through New Mexico State University in 2011, where I participated in the excavation of a Pueblo site in Southern New Mexico.
