Regardless of your age and level in school you have to learn to teach yourself. I excel at teaching students how to teach themselves so they are successful in any class regardless of the subject.

Regardless of your age and level in school you have to learn to teach yourself. I excel at teaching students how to teach themselves so they are successful in any class regardless of the subject.

I taught middle and high school science for 13 years with my latest teaching job at a Secondary School in Fairfax County. Subjects I have taught include biology, chemistry, physics, physical science, and earth science. I specialize in developing strong study habits and skills and making the content make sense. I enjoy working with all levels of students. I was a science fair coordinator, science team coach and developed a new Chemistry 2 course which was offered at two high schools. I am also an endorsed administrator and have been a principal for both private and public schools.

I currently work at the Department of Defense Education Activity (DoDEA) for their Virtual School developing online content and working with other virtual teachers. I look forward to helping you or your child achieve their goals both in school and in life! My motto: Whether you think you can, or think you can’t, you are right!

Zoology

Zoology

I have a B.S from the University of Maryland in Zoology. Courses taken for this degree include: genetics, cell and developmental biology, ecology and evolution. Zoology is a specialized biology degree and I have used this degree to obtain teacher certification in many sciences because of the breadth of the coursework required which also included entomology and botany.
