I have recently completed a Master of Environmental Science degree, and as such have extensive experience in a wide range of topics, including biology, ecology, chemistry, geology, statistics, and other natural and hard sciences. During the course of my education, I have acquired foundational experience in other topics, including literature, history, proofreading, and others.

I received my College Reading and Learning Association Level I Tutor Certificate in fall 2011 during my undergraduate degree, and have 5 semesters of tutoring experience at the college level. Having had the most experience in tutoring ecology courses, I greatly enjoy helping others understand concepts and connections, and strive to explain abstract, hard-to-grasp ideas in common or tactile terms to which students can more easily relate. Above all, I enjoy helping students better understand and appreciate the workings of the world around them on an everyday basis.

Drawing

I have drawn for personal pleasure my entire life, have received a certificate in equine drawing, and have taken a college level drawing course and several college painting courses, which expand on the same concepts taught in drawing courses. I cannot claim to have extensive academic or professional experience in the subject, but I have a lifetime of work supplemented by solid academic instruction.
Painting

Painting

I have taken four classes at the college level either entirely or partly focused on painting, those classes being: Watercolor I and II, Acrylics I, and Exploring Coral Reefs through Art and Ecology, which employed watercolor and drawing techniques to better understand the coral reefs of the US Virgin Islands through ecological eyes. At a personal level, I have painted predominantly with watercolor for six years.

Botany,

Botany

This is one of my strongest subjects, having taken many undergraduate and graduate courses on topics including plant taxonomy, field identification, natural history, ecology, and more advanced community monitoring and habitat assessment. I also have six seasons of experience working in native plant nurseries in the northeast and Pacific northwest, both of which required strong understanding of very different suites of species. During college and graduate school, I tutored a 300 level vascular plant taxonomy course, and 200 and 400 level ecology courses, both of which had strong botanical components.

Martial Arts

Martial Arts

I hold a red belt in United States Chung Do Kwan Taekwondo, which is considered to be the first advanced level belt within this association. For this reason, and based on the large variety of concepts, techniques, and philosophies found within the many varieties of martial arts, I would only consider myself qualified to tutor for belts below mine within the same association or perhaps the same art (Taekwondo), depending on the level of teaching required. During my studies in Taekwondo, I have spent many hours instructing students of many ages (5-60) in techniques from white to blue belt levels.
