Juniata College (Marine Biology)
Northeastern University (Master's)
During my undergraduate studies, I tutored Biology 101 and 201 (college courses). I graduated in 2011 with my Bachelors in Biology with an emphasis in Marine Science. Following graduation, I joined the US Peace Corps Kenya, where I taught high school level students in Biology, Math, Physics, Agriculture and HIV/Aids awareness. During this time I was teaching a hard of hearing school, meaning all of my classes were conducted in Kenya Sign Language. My responsibilities not only consisted of lesson planning and teaching, I also had to find clever ways in which my students could learn the material. Due to my students being deaf or hard of hearing, a lot of my teaching techniques were very visual and hands on approaches. I am now working on my Masters in Marine Biology at the Hatfield Marine Science Center.
In addition to my educational background, I have experience teaching percussion. From 2007 until 2011, I have worked at my high school marching band camp. There I worked with the percussion ensemble, leading rehearsals and modifying techniques. My strongest instrument is the mallets, but am very good at reading music in general.

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.
I have been playing percussion sense the 6th grade (age 11). I was both in the percussion ensemble, top wind ensemble, jazz band, and marching band during high school. I continued to play during my college career, where I also spent my summers going back and teaching the percussion ensemble during marching band camp.
As a marine biologist, I have taken many courses that are directly or indirectly correlated to zoology, including two invertebrate zoology courses and marine mammal biology. One summer I worked at the National Zoo Invertebrate Exhibit, where I worked directly with the organisms and taught visitors about these organisms. I also conduct a lot of research projects that require I understand a lot of the life histories of the organisms I study.
