Biology Bachelor of Science (Biology)
Graduated receiving Doctor of Philosophy (Ph D) degree in Pathobiology Sciences (PhD)
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 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 3 & 5. I enjoy a good (or cute) joke and interact well with children. I am also fine with pets, any pet.

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 have completed several undergraduate level courses in botany including general botany, plant physiology, plant morphology, identification and mounting and preserving of specimens. I keep plants as pets and often bring them to class to demonstrate morphology. I have also conducted experiments (mostly with my children) on plant physiology. Understanding plants is a major concept in General Biology 102 in the Virginia Community College System learning objectives.
I am half way through a Master’s degree in Education with courses in curriculum development, sheltered instruction observation protocols, instructional design for online learning, and workshops on inclusion, classroom management and for gifted and talented students. I have studied the mechanisms in memory, have two ADHD sons that I had to teach organizational skills, received counseling on how to help these two sons, and I teach test preparation and test taking skills to my college students. I am also highly organized with the use of lists, calendars and agendas. I raised 4 children so I understand developmental milestones. I can teach any core subject on the elementary level. I can also teach study skills.
I have completed several undergraduate level courses that have a genetic component including Genetics, Evolution, General Biology 101 and 102. I am well versed in Mendel and his experiments with pea plants and rosters. I understand and have also taught the Punnett Square and Hardy-Weinberg Equilibrium Principle. Understanding basic genetics is a major concept in General Biology 101 which I regularly teach in the Virginia Community College System learning objectives

I have completed undergraduate level courses that have a zoology component including General Biology 101 and 102, Organismal Biology, Vertebrate Physiology, and Entomology. Basic zoology is a major component in General Biology 101 and 102 in the Virginia Community College System learning objectives. I regularly teach both courses.
