About David

I am a high school life sciences instructor from the Bremen, Ohio area.

I am certified to teach all sciences for grades 7-12.

I have a B.Sci. in Wildlife Biology from Ohio University, where I also worked in an ecology lab as a field technician upon graduation. I am also in the final stages of completing my M.Ed. in Science education.

In addition to my current teaching position, I also have over 4 years of experience teaching Outdoor Education in a private facility in northern Ohio. Along with ecology and other sciences, this position gave me experience in teaching a variety of other subjects, including math, social studies and English.

As my original degree is in biology and I am training in scientific research and lab techniques, I believe in a "hands-on" approach to science. In other words, science is learned by doing it, not hearing about it. I firmly believe that labs and inquiry activities should be used whenever possible, to show students what science is really about and that it is more than just a collection of facts to learn for a test.

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.

Botany

I have a B.Sci. in Wildlife Biology from Ohio University. This degree required course work in botany. I have taken courses on the basics of botany, dendrology and the history of American forests. I currently teach an Advanced Biology course which spends a quarter teaching students the basic principles of botany. I have also taught a Wild Edibles course in the past, which dealt with local edible plants.

I have a B.Sci. in Wildlife Biology from Ohio University. This degree required course work in genetics. I currently teach a biology course which uses one quarter to introduce students to the basic concepts of genetics including, but not limited to: Mendel and the history of genetics, DNA structure and function, replication, transcription, translation, mitosis, meiosis, mutations, Punnett squares and their applications and pedigree analysis.

Zoology

I have a B.Sci. in Wildlife Biology from Ohio University. This degree required course work in different types of animal life including, mammalogy, ichthyology, ornithology, herpetology and animal behavior.
