About Melissa

I have my Bachelor's in Biology with a minor in Biochemistry. Recently I just finished my student teaching with a group of 7th graders and hold my teaching certification for secondary education in biology. I enjoy working with students and look forward to working with more.

In my classroom I was always looking for fun and creative ways to present the material. I believe biology is a fun subject, but do understand that it can be tough at the same time. I struggled with ecology topics throughout high school and college. I was also the quiet smart one that didn't admit she needed help, so I put in extra effort to find resources to help me learn the subject better. Everyone struggles and it's ok.

I started loving biology at a young age, and got into genetics with my dad's breeding program with his cattle program. I took advance level biology courses throughout high school, and went on to graduate with my Bachelor's Degree in Biology from the University of Nevada, Reno. At the university I was also involved in the Honor's Program and wrote a thesis on the study of migration patterns in dolphins and whales.

I believe that every student can succeed. I am here to help you find the resources and learning tools to help you succeed. I also enjoy learning new things, so any resources that you have found work for you feel free to share them with me through contacting me or a scheduled session.
