Baylor University (Nutrition)
I am an educator–not merely in the sense of my occupation or title, but truly in my inner being. Throughout my life, I have heard repeatedly how much of a “teacher” I am. My sister reminds me often: “Baily, you try to teach everyone all the time.
In 2007, I graduated from Baylor University with a degree in nutrition and began working at Performance Enhancing Nutrition for gastroenterologist, Jose Rodriguez, M.D., as a health and wellness nutritionist. There I counseled patients in the areas of healthy eating techniques, medical nutrition therapy (mainly for diabetes and heart disease), and taught aerobics classes. Working with patients at PEN helped me build communication skills. My patients ranged from six year old whose parents could not get them to gain weight, to a judge with ulcerative colitis. I also counseled couples through wellness programs, and helped law enforcement officials achieve their weight loss goals.
I later took a job as a nutritionist at Valley AIDS Council, where I created a nutrition program tailored to patients who had contracted HIV or had developed AIDS. Because of an extended commute, I decided to begin teaching. I was initially offered a position as a high school chemistry teacher. Since then, I have taught nearly all science subjects, coached volleyball, and sponsored two clubs. I have loved every minute of it, and I was recently nominated for “Teacher of the Year” at Houston’s Memorial High School. I am honored beyond words. I have taught at a variety of different schools over the past 7 years. Teaching has taught me patience, endurance, creativity, and, most importantly, how to convey a complex message in a variety of simplified manors.
I firmly believe that knowledge give us the opportunity to make a difference in your child's learning experience. I would be honored to be a part of your student's success. Thank you for your time and consideration. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me.

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.
