University of Wisconsin at Stevens Poin
Boise State University (Master's)
My name is Danielle, and I am an enthusiastic teacher! I recently moved back to Leavenworth, WA, after having earned my Master of Science in Biology at Boise State University. During that time, I earned a graduate fellowship with the National Science Foundation, that focused on teaching scientists to convey science concepts to non-science audiences. This opportunity allowed me to work with a local non-profit environmental education center, where I taught students of all ages about scientific concepts, in both outdoor and classroom settings. During graduate school, I taught laboratory classes for undergraduate students, and earned Most Valuable Teaching Assistant in 2011.
I would love the opportunity to work with you and your learner on science concepts and beyond! As a Master of Science, I am also a published author in scientific journals, and have made countless presentations of my research to audiences of all kinds. Not only can I can help your learner with science, I am also a great teacher for reading and writing, and can help them with class projects and presentations, oral communication and computer skills.
I also am an herbalist, cook, German-speaker, and musician! I play flute and oboe and have taken cooking classes in macrobiotics, ayurvedic pracitices, and nutrition. I am also an avid Yogi, and have been practicing and teaching yoga for 10 years. One is never to old to learn a new skill, so please feel free to contact me with any questions!
As a teacher, I am an out-of-the-box kind of thinker, who will tailor my teaching style to you and/or your learner's needs. I realize that every person learns differently, therefore to successfully convey information and new skills, I will strive to make learning fun and accessible, while meeting our goals together. My teaching style is inquiry-based, which I believe to be much more engaging for the student, rather than simply memorizing facts. Through inquiry-based techniques, the learner is encouraged to think independently and creatively to solve problems and come to solutions. These are critical skills not only for their academic career, but for their interactions with their community and employment positions in the future.
Please feel free to get in touch with me with any questions, comments, or concerns. I love teaching, and am looking forward to meeting you and your learner's goals. Thank you for your consideration and I hope to hear from you soon!
Danielle Hi there!
My name is Danielle, and I am an enthusiastic teacher! I recently moved back to Leavenworth, WA, after having earned my Master of Science in Biology at Boise State University. During that time, I earned a graduate fellowship with the National Science Foundation, that focused on teaching scientists to convey science concepts to
$55 for the first hour, $50 for each consecutive hour.
I have a Master of Science in Biology. My Master's thesis focused on hybridization in a rare plant in Idaho. My undergraduate degree was in Biology with a focus on Botany. I have worked in Botany for the federal government for the last seven years.
I am an avid cook, and have studied ayurvedic and macrobiotic cooking in both Boise and Seattle. I am familiar with many types of cooking for health purposes, and am a certified herbalist. (I work with herbs and incorporate healing herbs and spices into cooking for the benefit of a person's health and well-being.)
I have been a substitute teacher in the Boise, ID school district for two years. During that time, I have taught many different subjects to various aged students. I was also a National Science Foundation fellow, who worked with K-6 students teaching environmental and science-based lessons, both in the classroom and in outdoor settings.
I play flute in a local Irish band here, and have played since I was in middle school. I was a member of the Milwaukee Conservatory of Music in High School, and was a flutist in the All-City Milwaukee band and Orchestra for 6 years.
During my Master's degree and in my recent position as a research botanist for the Idaho Fish and game department, I have built and maintained complex and multifaceted Access databases, involving linked files and multiples types of data, built forms for data entry, and established protocols.
I have been a public speaker for many years, and have provided talks in both professional and general public-interest settings. As a master of science, I gave talks on my research at scientific meetings. As a botanist with Idaho fish and game, I provided the public talks on plants of Idaho in more casual settings.
I have been practicing Yoga for over 10 years, and have been teaching on and off for the last four, both in private lessons and in group settings. I have studied Anusara yoga and Hatha yoga, am familiar with the principles of proper alignment, and seek to challenge and inspire each person in my classes.
