Hello, my name is Amber--I look forward to meeting you! I have a degree in Marine Science with a concentration in Biology and a minor in Chemistry. I have 12 years of teaching experience in a wide variety of settings and with an incredible variety of students. I've worked with all age groups, backgrounds, levels of English language learners, and learning accommodations. I have a flexible teaching style and view the students I work with as the individuals they are, not just "another student".

I taught six years of experiential outdoor Environmental Education on topics of marine science, biology, ecology, and environmental science for all age groups--elementary, middle, high school, undergraduate, and adult. I moved out of the field and into the classroom to work at IMG Academy and taught Biology, Chemistry, Environmental Science, and Marine Science there. After five years in the Florida sun, it was time to move up north which brought me to Herndon, VA and The Madeira School where I currently teach Biology, Chemistry, Anatomy, and Environmental/Marine topics.

My educational philosophy is based of what is called the "Law of Primacy"; the first experience you have with something is the one that you will remember most. Science is one of those subjects that can be difficult to bounce back from if you've had a difficult initial experience with it. My main goal is to make science accessible and relatable to my students. Making the needed connections to bring the content to the student, rather than bring the student to the content, enables a student to internalize and apply content that they are learning.

My inquiry-based tutoring style guides my students in making these needed connections so that they are more confident in the classroom.

Are you interested in hearing more about how I work with my students? Send me a message so that we can discuss it or schedule a lesson and we'll talk about what you can expect!
