"in Environmental Science and Biology) working in colleges, museums, classrooms and more. I've taught students about the environment while on 5 hour long hikes through redwood forests in the same year I taught human biology to students at a private school. Each experience improved and broadened my educational skill. Each experience has also deepened my commitment to teaching and tutoring in the natural sciences. I love the depth and complexity of science, but I refuse to let that complexity make the subject inaccessible."

"I tutored Spanish and Biology in High School, and at Brandeis University, I expanded my repertoire and taught some French, Chemistry, Anatomy, and Physiology.

My tutoring style is very hands on. I like evaluating problem areas for students and helping them with those while strengthening areas that they're more comfortable in.
