Cornell College - Mt. Vernon, IA (Geology)
I completed an undergraduate capstone honors thesis in geology by relocating a lost archaeology site. As the project manager for this endeavor, I was able to use previous data from the original excavator’s journals and field notes from 1962 to re-evaluate the area thought to hold the pre-historic site. From that research I was able to narrow down a 30-acre hilltop to a 20 meter by 20 meter location within the original site. After delegating teams to take soil samples and test augers, we found evidence of previous paleo-human activity. The site was excavated by my team of 9 archaeology students, along with 3 professors and myself, who then confirmed my findings, which I presented at a symposium this past April.
I was elected Cornell College’s tennis team captain my third year for my hard work and dedication. I worked with the Dean of Athletics promoting our team and being an example for the new students who arrived each year. My work-study was a Cole Library where, during my sophomore year, I was promoted from Circulation Desk Worker to Assistant Research Librarian until my graduation, 2 years later. With this promotion I was now charged with the supervision of other student workers and the overall care of the library in the absence of other librarians. During events I was task manager, uniting up to 60 student coworkers in meetings and delegating work within teams throughout the library. Examples of these were high school science fairs, mock trial events, speech and debate forums, art galleries, public patron movie nights, and game nights. I also assisted students with their research projects focused in the science departments. I would construct an outline and sources relevant for students starting out with new projects and continue to aid them as they progressed through the semester. With the assistance in the completion of hundreds of projects, I gained solid leadership experience and confidence in keeping the project participants on time and on task.
Tutoring seems a great way to share my experiences and knowledge with those who want to further their education.
Mathematics always seemed to make sense to me, so I feel as if teaching math would be a breeze.
I love science. I keep up to date on all kinds of studies throughout the field. As a college graduate in geology, with emphases in biology, anthropology, environmental sciences, and archaeology, I see that my interests are diverse and therefore qualifies me as a science tutor with a broad spectrum experience.

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.
