About Adam


Bio

Hello! My name is Adam S. and I would love to be your tutor. I am currently a high school science teacher teaching biology and IB biology. While I love working in the classroom, I think working one-on-one with students is where we can really make strong progress.

I enjoy getting to know new students and learning how I can support them. From day one, I am fully invested in the success of the people I work with. I teach largely through inquiry, encouraging students to use prior knowledge...

Hello! My name is Adam S. and I would love to be your tutor. I am currently a high school science teacher teaching biology and IB biology. While I love working in the classroom, I think working one-on-one with students is where we can really make strong progress.

I enjoy getting to know new students and learning how I can support them. From day one, I am fully invested in the success of the people I work with. I teach largely through inquiry, encouraging students to use prior knowledge and skills to gain new and better understandings. More than anything else, I enjoy helping students reach and exceed their goals. I welcome any and all new challenges so please don't hesitate to reach out with any questions!

Outside of teaching, I enjoy playing ultimate frisbee and volleyball, and reading. However, most of my free time is spent playing with my dog (who demands as much attention as possible).

I have tutored extensively for both Algebra I and Prealgebra. In my school, I collaborate often with the math department so I am very familiar with many of the important concepts and units.

I graduated with a degree in biology and a minor in chemistry. I was also fortunate enough to study in two research labs while in college. I was even listed as an author for a paper published by some of the graduate students I work with. These experiences deepened my passion for science. I am always seeking out new and current information to stay up to date on the world of science and enjoy sharing what I learn with others. My research focused on cell biology, although I was (and still am) most interested in genetics and molecular biology.

Additionally, my teaching license is in composite science 6-12 and I have teaching experience in science grades 9-12.

I have extensive experience preparing students for the biology STAAR test. I am very familiar with the concepts and questions and train throughout the year to help my students be successful on the STAAR. I have also amassed a variety of STAAR preparation materials including practice assignments, vocabulary lists, and released test questions.

I am looking forward to working with you or your child! Again, I fully invest myself in the students I work with with the ultimate goal being to help them be confident and successful in what they do. If you have any questions or would like to schedule a lesson, please don't hesitate to reach out!
