University of South Carolina (Marine Science)
University of South Carolina (PhD)
I have always loved science and have always enjoyed helping others learn this wonderful area of study. I started my scientific career as an undergraduate at USC studying Marine Science. As an undergraduate, I tutored high school students and fellow undergraduates in Biology while conducting undergraduate research. As I continued my scientific career, receiving a Ph.D. in Biology, and as a postdoctoral fellow and assistant research professor, I guest lectured in various Biology courses, tutored Biology undergraduate and graduate students, and regularly taught labs in Biology.
I left research because I wanted to teach more and began teaching high school and middle school students. As a high school and middle school teacher, I have taught Physical Science, Biology I, and Chemistry. To me, there is almost nothing better than seeing understanding dawn in a student's eyes.
During my academic career, as a student (undergraduate and graduate), a postdoctoral fellow, and an assistant research professor, I had the opportunity and privilege to teach, tutor, and mentor high school, undergraduate, and graduate students in Biology. As a middle school and high school teacher, I have taught and I am currently teaching Physical Science, Biology, and Chemistry. I have also tutored Adult Education students and helped students prepare for the GED.
If you or your student is having difficulty in a science course or just want a tutor to keep up with a class or expand your understanding, I would love to help. I have taught all levels of students, from middle school to graduate students, as well as adult education students. I look forward to hearing from anyone who would like my assistance in the learning process. I have always loved science and have always enjoyed helping others learn this wonderful area of study.

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 a Ph.D. in Biology and have taught labs, guest lectured, and tutored Biology at the collegiate level. For the past 4 years, I have taught high school Biology I and have experience teaching high school Biology I at the College Prep, Applied, and Honors level.
