*Top 10 Tutor for Wyzant in 2020!*
My personal tutoring philosophy consists of creating a personalized educational environment for every student, providing encouragement and accountability, and teaching science-based study habits that every learner can take on to the next steps of their educational journey.
I just graduated from Clemson University with a Bachelor's of Science in Animal and Veterinary Bioscience with a minor in Biological Sciences. I completed extensive research in infrared camera traps in South Africa on cheetah and lion reintroduction and ecological cascades as well as primate personality research on golden lion tamarins. I also worked as a TA during college for my major courses.
I have been a tutor since 2012, my freshman year of high school. I graduated from high school in 2016 with honors and an SC Academic Achievement Diploma. I took over 30 hours of college courses and AP credits.
I have a huge passion for creative writing and began seriously pursuing writing as a high school freshman. Since have had over a dozen publications in anthologies and magazines and have attended workshops for both adults and students. I additionally worked as an editor for an international magazine for Christian teens and write a wildlife conservation blog.
Overall, I love to learn and I hope to pass this passion on to all my students.
