Hi! My name is Mrs. A and I have taught in PISD, RISD and I will be teaching in GISD in the spring. I am certified in 4-8 science and I have taught kindergarten through 12th grade. I specialize in students with anxiety disorders and physical disabilities. Growing up I was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis so I understand the challenges that life can bring outside of the classroom. I believe teaching is not a "one size fits all" and I am very flexible. Whenever possible I like to bring pictures/samples collected in the field to help students understand concepts.
Before I was a science teacher I worked as a biologist at a zoo and I have done field geology research in the Sierra Nevada Mountains. I believe this real-world experience helps me relate concepts to students and it makes science fun!
I am very happy to accommodate many different learners. It is my goal to make my students feel comfortable while learning. Please contact me and let me know what you're stuck on. I will be glad to help! Hi! My name is Mrs. A and I have taught in PISD, RISD and I will be teaching in GISD in the spring.

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.
I worked for almost 10 years in animal care settings including: the Dallas Zoo, the Children's Aquarium at Fair Pair in Dallas. I have also volunteered with sea turtle rehab in addition to attending Texas A&M University for Marine Biology. My current job is an animal care specialist for Plano ISD in which I teach kids about ecology using over 100+ animals. When I am not teaching, I have taking care of the animals. My experience ranges from exotic animals and native animals including (but not limited to) snakes, alligators, sharks, raccoons, opossum, rabbits, stingrays and more.
