About Taylor


Bio

I love and always have loved school, learning new things, and helping others do the same, which is why I became a teacher! I taught 8th Pre-Algebra for two years and 7th Science for three years at a college prep school in Memphis, TN. Our school has tutoring built into our schedule so I have a lot of one-on-one experience with students of all different learning styles!

I am also an artist who loves using art to help communicate simple or difficult concepts. New knowledge is best acquired...

I love and always have loved school, learning new things, and helping others do the same, which is why I became a teacher! I taught 8th Pre-Algebra for two years and 7th Science for three years at a college prep school in Memphis, TN. Our school has tutoring built into our schedule so I have a lot of one-on-one experience with students of all different learning styles!

I am also an artist who loves using art to help communicate simple or difficult concepts. New knowledge is best acquired when students can connect it to their own learning style and to things they already know and experience, which using visuals also helps with! Anything worth doing takes practice and I love seeing the progress that comes with working at something over time!

I taught and developed a curriculum for 75 min 8th Common Core Pre-Algebra classes for 2 years and tutored 40 min classes each day for two years after that and I still love the subject whenever we get to use it in science. I earned high SAT math scores, took Calculus in both high school and college, and passed the Math Praxis!

I have taught and developed a middle school science curriculum for three years, which includes Biology, Physical Science, and Chemistry, and passed the Biology Praxis! Science is my favorite subject and I love how it, much like math, applies to everything!

Feel free to contact me if you need help, insight, or encouragement in any of these areas and I look forward to hearing from you soon!

Drawing

I have successfully completed one year of Visual Arts training at Texas A&M. During my five-year teaching career, I have taught 30-minute cartooning sessions to secondary students four times a week and I have enjoyed watching their creativity grow! I have created pieces using charcoal, chalk pastel, oil pastel, acrylic paint, drawing pencils and pens, artist markers, and sculpture.

Homeschool

Biology,

Biology

I created and refined daily science lessons for 7th graders, about a third of which is biology in Memphis, Tennessee. This included developing fluency and remediation activities and formative and summative assessments. It also included hands-on projects such as: modeling and comparing mitosis and meiosis with veggie straws, designing an aquarium, making a mitosis flipbook, creating a cell diorama, and more!
Geometry,

Geometry

I created and refined geometry lessons within our 8th grade Pre-Algebra curriculum for 2 years. In addition, I developed homework and remediation tasks and formative and summative assessments for this subject. Some of the topics included transversals, pythagorean theorem (for which we sang a catchy tune), transformations (featuring the Transformers), angle relationships, perimeter, volume, and area!
Prealgebra,

Prealgebra

I created and revised curriculum for 8th grade Pre-Algebra and Algebra (for half a semester) for 2 years in Memphis, Tennessee. In addition, I developed fluency and remediation activities along with formative and summative assessments. Topics included slope, transversals, geometry, one and two-step equations, solving multi-step word problems, number sense, exponents and roots, and more!
