As a practicing veterinarian, math and science are a part of my daily routine. To get to where I'm at now, though, I had to start with the basics. Math from the elementary to college level and biological sciences (including anatomy, physiology, genetics) are my preferred areas to tutor. I regularly led study groups for the entire duration of my college career at both the University of Findlay and Iowa State University. During school, I would often find that making flashcards and developing mnemonics aided my own learning style. Now, I'm excited to work through WyzAnt and help tutor students in the basics of math and science, discovering what learning style helps you the best, and using that to clarify concepts in a practical way. Helping you understand is my goal, and it's even better if I can find a way to make the subject matter exciting! I have a passion for teaching, and enjoy seeing the "light bulb moment!"
Additionally, I enjoy writing, and have a strong background in English/grammar/proofreading. I can help to review essays and give advice on writing succinct, relevant materials from junior high to the college level.
As I am a practicing veterinarian, my tutoring schedule is around my primary work schedule, but I do have flexibility. I am open to online/Skype tutoring if it is more convenient, but will meet in public locations (libraries in Penn Township, Irwin, and Monroeville are possibilities) around the eastern suburbs of Pittsburgh as well. I will regularly update parents (via email or telephone) on the student's progress, and also ask for feedback in ways that I can tailor an individualized approach. I value your time, as also my own, and do require a 24 hour cancellation notice. If you need to cancel, though, I will work with you to set up a make-up session within the same week if possible.
I look forward to hearing from you, and helping you meet your educational goals with an individualized approach. As a practicing veterinarian, math and science are a part of my daily routine.

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 hold a bachelor of science in pre-veterinary medicine and biology. Zoology I and Zoology II were required courses in my major. I continued my education to receive a Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine. Therefore, I am well-educated in the subject (zoology) which would be considered a portion of what I practice on a daily basis.
