----If they don't learn the way you teach, teach the way they learn!----
Whether you are shooting for a 5 on the AP test, aiming for medical school, or want to be commended on the STAAR, I am your guy! You will not find a friendlier, more flexible, or accomodating tutor anywhere in the lone star state. I understand science is often one of the most overwhelming subjects for students, as its easy to look at the mountain of knowledge ahead and experience anxiety - I used to feel the same way!...

Whether you are shooting for a 5 on the AP test, aiming for medical school, or want to be commended on the STAAR, I am your guy! You will not find a friendlier, more flexible, or accomodating tutor anywhere in the lone star state. I understand science is often one of the most overwhelming subjects for students, as its easy to look at the mountain of knowledge ahead and experience anxiety - I used to feel the same way! But guess what, science is easy. And I'll prove it to you!

----My Approach & My Credentials ----
I've taught for nearly 10 years in a brick and mortar school, but now I'm a virtual (online) teacher. I love it, and my talents will certainly benefit you! My teaching philosophy is student centered, and instruction is always altered based on the need of the student. In my experience the greatest deficit most students have today is in critical thinking and problem solving. I have countless tools available so we will always find the best way for YOU to learn. My goal for everyone I teach is to improve metacognition and develop life long learners. If we better understand ourselves, we better understand the world around us.

I've had several students get into medical school, and each one has personally thanked me. Numerous times I've been told, "No one prepared me better for college than you." I'm a teacher of almost 10 years with a 90+ % pass rate on the AP Biology exam (most of those were fives)! I was the GT liaison for N.S. in Carrollton, TX before joining my current virtual school. When there was a chemistry EOC (about 8 years ago) every one of my students passed. I've taught all the sciences here in Texas and even written questions for the STAAR biology exam. This gives me unique insight into the test questions and structure. I will teach you more than content, but to understand how test questions are written. No more feeling tricked or confused!

I have a B.S. in Biology & minor in Chemistry with a focus on medical and cell biology. During college I worked in multiple hospital pharmacies as a pharmacy technician. I have some great stories about my time as a pharmacy tech and mental health tech in a psychiatric hospital that will both entertain and frighten you. For those of you with the goal of getting into medical or pharmacy schools I have some valuable advice that will help you achieve your dream.

----Time is money ----
During our sessions I ask that you come prepared. Have some questions ready to go. Please be organized, if there are assignments giving you trouble, use your phone to scan them in so we can work on them together. Focus on asking specific questions and try to avoid saying I don't get this. If you know your learning style (visual, audible, tactile, etc), let me know ahead of time so I can have more of those tools ready to go. If you are unsure of your learning style, google it. It will benefit you greatly. For my disorganized students, at some point I may ask to review your notes and help you get organized.
