University of Memphis (Biology)
I am currently a high school instructor for Shelby County Schools. I attended Arlington High School and University of Memphis. During my years at University of Memphis, my disciplines included Biology and Spanish, as well as a minor in Chemistry. I am currently earning my Master of Arts in Teaching.
I learned to appreciate science and nature when I had excellent teachers that inspired me. I enjoy helping students reach full potential and witnessing student growth. I enjoy making difficult concepts, "easy" and witnessing the "light bulb" moment. I have worked at a pharmacy and I am eager to learn about student's professional goals.
In college, I was blessed with the opportunity to study abroad in Costa Rica. I have taken a plethora of Spanish courses such as Spanish for Commerce, Spanish for Healthcare, Spanish Literature/Civilization, Languages/Cultures/Communities, etc. I enjoy Spanish grammar and the culture dealing with the Spanish language is immaculate.
I embrace a thirst for knowledge and I am always seeking opportunities to help others reach their academic goals and excellence. I experience the joy of making a difference, and to me, there is no greater feeling. Instilling an "I can do it!" attitude is half the goal within itself. I tell my students, not to settle for anything less than the absolute best and that anything is possible with a willingness to try. I am currently a high school instructor for Shelby County Schools.

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.
