About Amanda

I currently work as a chemist for an environmental testing laboratory in Sparks. I graduated from both TMCC and UNR with a Bachelors of Science in Biology. I took a wide range of science subjects throughout my college career, covering everything between physics and chemistry to ornithology and behavioral psychology. I previously worked as a tutor at TMCC in the anatomy and physiology lab.

I have extensive experience interacting and teaching children; for six years I worked as a swim instructor for the City of Reno and for Double Diamond Athletic Club. In my spare time, I am an avid reader, enjoy quilting and playing the piano.

I started college as a nursing major, but after taking the prerequisite science classes, fell in love with the subject of science instead. I have taken many math and science classes over the years. I have always thoroughly enjoyed reading so many of my elective classes were Literature based. I keep my science and math skills up to date in my place of work and my mind sharp by ordering a wide variety of new books every month.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions regarding lessons, scheduling, etc. I look forward to hearing from you!
