About Holly


Bio

I am a graduate of Texas A&M Galveston (Whoooooop!) with a Bachelors in Marine Biology. Along the way I gained some unique experiences working at 2 different vet clinics, the Moody Gardens Aquarium, and the Marine Mammal Stranding Network. After college I gained employment at NASA's Neutral Buoyancy Lab as a SCUBA diver. I started teaching SCUBA diving on my spare time, and loved helping others replace their fear and apprehension with confidence and opportunity. I followed my passion for...

I am a graduate of Texas A&M Galveston (Whoooooop!) with a Bachelors in Marine Biology. Along the way I gained some unique experiences working at 2 different vet clinics, the Moody Gardens Aquarium, and the Marine Mammal Stranding Network. After college I gained employment at NASA's Neutral Buoyancy Lab as a SCUBA diver. I started teaching SCUBA diving on my spare time, and loved helping others replace their fear and apprehension with confidence and opportunity. I followed my passion for education into full time teaching at Clear View High School for 8 years. I am now an entrepreneur, designing an educational app for students in grades 8th-12th. While, I will miss my time as a teacher, I hope that tutoring will give me the opportunity to continue my passion and mission.

I have experience teaching Biology (STAAR), Chemistry, Integrated Physics & Chemistry (IPC), and Aquatic Science.

My teaching style incorporates a blend of creativity, fun, and real world application in a relaxed atmosphere where mistakes are an opportunity to learn and grow. Some of the best scientific breakthroughs come from the invention of mistakes. I welcome any resources that a student contributes or prefers to work with. Each student is unique with their own learning style. The goal is to customize the lesson around a student to maximize engagement and confidence. Please feel free to contact me with any questions. I look forward to working with you and/or your student.
