I can help you learn biology and math. My teaching experience has mostly been at the college level teaching at 2 year, 4 year and post graduate institutions. I have also been a substitute teacher in high school and elementary schools as well as home schooled children with special needs or who were suspended.
My focus in biology is ecology, entomology and evolution; however, I also have a strong background in mathematics.
My teaching style can include lecture; however, I prefer to engage the student. I listen well to determine weaknesses in understanding concepts so that I can focus on that concept. I do not need to teach the whole course to provide understanding.
I can also teach scientific term paper writing including APA style in text and resource page citations, as well as proofreading skills.
I have helped my students on many occasions with organizational skills and study and test taking skills.
I am also qualified to teach the younger set. I have raised 4 children and was an active participant in all school and extracurricular activities. I have baked a lot of cupcakes! All are off to college or have graduated and I have 2 delightful grandsons ages 6 & 8. I enjoy a good (or cute) joke and interact well with children. I am also fine with pets, any pet.

Very helpful and very kind
My son is struggling with Trig. Cynthia was very understanding, helpful, and kind. I really like how she wanted us to connect her with the classroom teacher so that they could work in tandem. My son is still struggling, but rather than being in a state of despair, he is working his way toward hopeful.LAURA, 11 lessons with Cynthia
