I have taught high school Biology and AP Biology full-time for a year at Fremont Christian School (Fremont, CA). I am a research scientist turned educator, who is currently in a graduate program for a science teaching credential online through the University of West Florida. I am student teaching in Biology at West-Mont Christian Academy (Pottstown), as well as substitute teaching in middle and high school there and also substitute teaching in elementary through high school at Dock Mennonite Academy (Souderton and Lansdale). I have a Masters in Biology from San Francisco State University and have successfully published my biodiversity research in an international science journal. I would enjoy tutoring biology and other high school sciences because I want to encourage and inspire students to pursue science as a career. I love interacting with and building relationships with students, watching them grow, analyze and think critically about the natural world.

I have taught college Introductory Biology for 2.5 years part-time at San Francisco State University and 1 year full-time in high school Biology and AP Biology. I also designed and taught a hands on high school specialty course ''Glorious Design of Marine Invertebrates'' during January Term.

I have AP Biology and Biology resources available to teach both subjects and tons of science experience to integrate and share in my lessons.

I am qualified to tutor Ecology because I possess a Bachelors and Masters in Biology. I have taught Biology and AP Biology for a year and college Introductory Biology for 2.5 years. I am a research scientist, now working on a secondary science teaching credential. My life and career before becoming an educator was centered around biodiversity, the natural sciences, field-work. I have described 5 new species based on genetics, morphology, and their ecology. Since, I was an ecologist, marine biologist, evolutionary biologist etc. I am more than qualified to tutor in Ecology or AP Environmental Science.

I am qualified to tutor Physical Science because I possess a Bachelors and Masters in Science. In my college coursework, I was required to take advanced physics, general chemistry, and organic chemistry. I have taught Biology and AP Biology for a year and college Introductory Biology for 2.5 years. I am a research scientist, now working on a secondary science teaching credential. I have begun tutoring a 9th grader in Physical Science and we will be meeting every week. Since, I have been disciplined enough and successful in my research and graduate studies in science, I am more than capable of tutoring 9th grade science whether it is Biology or Physical Science. As an undergraduate, I was selected for an internship at the American Museum of Natural History, which was directed by Neal Degrasse Tyson himself, the famous African American astrophysicist.
Zoology

Zoology

I have described and named 5 new species of nudibranch (sea slug), discovered a new sea slug genus, and published this biodiversity/zoology research in 2015 with resources provided by the California Academy of Sciences. This paper is titled ''Molecular and Morphological Systematics of Doto (Gastropoda: Heterobranchia), with descriptions of five new species and a new genus''. I have 2.5 years teaching college Introductory Biology and a year teaching high school Biology and AP Biology.
