About Stephanie

First and foremost, my goal as a teacher is to provide the structure and motivation to help students obtain greater academic success. I believe that all students can learn, but also acknowledge that there can be many distractions in their lives that keep them from achieving their full potential.

In my experience, even the most distant child can become engaged if the lesson is presented in a way that relates to them. For this reason, I strive to make every lesson educationally valuable to my students by linking each concept to real-life issues.
It is so exciting to see a student who was supposedly "weak" in science, become deeply involved in a scientific experiment that has sparked their interest.

What I have enjoyed most about a career in education is the ability to watch students grow through both their successes and failures. I have taught every type of student, from those that are new to the country and still struggling to read English, to those who are in the top of their class and aiming to make it to an Ivy League school. No matter what their background, these students are are all trying to find their place in this world and are looking for the encouragement and guidance to help them succeed.

The most rewarding moments of this job are the times when I can provide this support for my students in a way that allows them to not only achieve greater academic success but life success as well. Please feel free to contact me if you are interested in a passionate and effective biology tutor who will do whatever it takes to ensure my students are successful in reaching their goals. Thanks!

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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.

Biology

As a biology teacher and tutor, I strive to help my students understand how the concepts relate to their daily lives instead of just simply memorizing for a test. I find that this makes the class more enjoyable and the student more successful.

TAKS

I have been teaching the science TAKS test since 2004. I have done numerous TAKS camps and have designed curriculum with which to help students review.
