I have been teaching science for eleven years including physical science, chemistry, earth science and geology. I have also taught 7th grade math and algebra. I have worked for Sylvan Learning Center as a teacher, and I am a certified teacher in the state of Oregon. I have tutored individual students and small groups throughout my career, and I am also very familiar with the scientific method and lab techniques, so I would be able to assist students in writing lab reports. I have taught all ages from kindergarten through adult, so I am comfortable with a range of age groups.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have taught elementary students in grades K-6 as a science classroom teacher and a reading and math paraprofessional (Teacher's Assistant). I have been trained in teaching students how to read and write. I have basic Spanish language skills as well.
Elementary Math,

Elementary Math

As a Teacher's Aide, I helped students with basic math skills including addition, subtraction, multiplication, long division, fractions, percentages, graphing, and other elementary math subjects. I use hands-on learning (from my science background), and draw graphs, and lots of pictures specifically designed to help those who struggle with numbers in general.
Elementary Science,

Elementary Science

As a science teacher I have taught grades Kindergarten through 12. I prefer working with younger learners. I have taught Geology, Astronomy, Chemistry, Health Careers, Physics, Science Research, General Science, and other life sciences. I have many lessons designed to captivate young learners with household items (like baking soda and vinegar "volcanoes" to teach acid-base neutralization).
Study Skills,

Study Skills

To help students study, I use many methods from index cards, to apps, and videos. I use practice problems for math, and science. For writing, I use free writing, clustering, rough drafts, and editing students papers. As a classroom teacher, I have always integrated some sort of creativity into my lessons. I firmly believe that critical thinking, and creativity are necessary parts of the whole student.

Physical Science

I have taught Physical Science grades K-12. I usually include teaching about Environmental Science part of what I tutor, because it is so vital. I am an avid amateur astronomer, so a trip to OMSI to meet with the Rose City Astronomers club would be one example of how I teacher Physical Science.
