Texas A&M University, College Station, TX (Biomedical Science)
I am the Science Department Chair at a high school. I have five years of experience teaching high school and over seven tutoring the sciences. I have a large reserve of scientific knowledge and enjoy helping students develop study skills and discover their own discipline. My goal as a teacher and tutor is to draw out the maturity and dedication necessary for students to succeed independently. I ask a lot of my students. I think with them and motivate them from the inside out. I teach them to enjoy the successes of mastery, yet teach them how to repurpose that mastery. Prior to teaching I spent 10 years in the healthcare field. I have 3 children, aged 16, 5, and 4!

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.
Junior high and high school pre-ap and academic level algebra 1. Introduction to polynomials, factoring, functions and much more.
I teach math from elementary to Algebra as a science teacher. My strength outside science is math. I scored a 740 on SAT math at age 16 and have been tutoring math off and on since college. As pure as any content area gets, I teach the simplicities of Algebra 2 focusing on clear, concise handwork and simple study skills. Much of the struggles students find in Algebra lie in a lack of guided practice with repetition. I provide that. The rest is up to the student.
I worked in medical prosthetics and organ and tissue transplant for ten years before becoming a teacher, so my background is in anatomy and physiology. This is one of my strongest content areas. I have written anatomy and physiology exams for science competitions focusing on various organ systems. I taught A&P for health professionals at a vocational school while working in the healthcare field.
I scored well in biochemistry as part of my bachelor's degree in biomedical science. I have studied and taught biochemistry and pharmacology as a tutor and have interest in the subjects.
As part of my degree plan in college I studied biology (2 semesters), biochemistry (2 semesters), anatomy and physiology, virology, and microbiology accumulating a 3.8 science GPA. I am a high school science department chair and have been teaching and tutoring science and math for seven years. I tutor high school biology and AP Biology students. I am versed in and follow Texas TEKS and the College Board curricula, respectively. I have contributed to TEK based review materials for high school biology and am a huge fan of the Campbell Biology textbook!
I have a bachelor's degree in biomedical science from Texas A&M which required 24 credit hours of chemistry in addition to upper level courses requiring chemistry as a prerequisite. I have been teaching and tutoring chemistry for 5 years as team leader at the academic and pre-AP level.
