About George

I've spent 21 years in school even though I skipped 8th grade. I've logged, farmed and been published. My thesis was on fresh water sponges but my interests are far broader. I'm provisionally certified to teach biology in Vt. through June 2013.

I truly love teaching and just finished filling in for a teacher doing maternity leave at U32 in E. Montpelier. I believe I'm good at finding real world connections to the subject at hand that facilitates learning. To emphasize the concept of biological magnification I involved cannibalism and implored my students to only eat vegetarians. They were the only group among three in the school that nailed that question on the final.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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.

Zoology

I have a good handle on Linnean classification and the evolutionary march to complexity without falling into the anthropomorphic smugness of some. We are after all, animals ourselves; vertebrata, mammalia, primata, Homo sapiens.
