***Due to limited time availability, I would like to limit my tutoring to plant identification for the time being.***

I am 28 years old with a B.S. from the University of Washington, consisting of a major in Environmental Science and Resource Management and a minor in Environmental Studies. I currently work with a local tribe managing their habitat restoration program both in the office and in the field.

I have experience as a Peer TA at the University of Washington teaching students about taxonomy, field plant identification to family, genus or species, and the use of taxonomic keys (AKA floras) to identify unfamiliar plants. I have extensive knowledge and experience in native or naturalized vascular plant ID, and moderate knowledge and experience in ornamental plant species identification. Though I have experience and knowledge of non-vascular plant ID, my knowledge is not extensive enough to warrant tutoring in the keying of non-vascular plants such as bryophytes (mosses), hornworts, and liverworts.

I additionally have training in ethnobotanical uses of local plants (e.g., "traditional" edible, medicinal and utilitarian plant uses) and would be happy to augment any plant ID tutoring with this information if this is of interest to the student.

I am a strong believer in experiential learning and opt for hands on learning whenever possible. Therefore, if the situation allows for it, tutoring in plant ID may include excursions to different neighborhoods, parks or forests in the area.
