I recently graduated with highest honors from Texas A&M University and received a B.S. in Forestry and Ecological Restoration. While in college, I worked for three years as a tutor for the A&M Athletics Department, tutoring in multiple math subjects, biology, chemistry, ecology, botany, history, English, and forestry. I spent one semester working in the writing lab, helping students write and edit their essays. I also worked as a teaching assistant for a year, creating my own lectures and exams while also leading experiments for classes of up to 15 students at a time.
Teaching is a highly rewarding experience for me. I understand that everyone has a different learning style, and I strive to always adapt my teaching style to the needs of my students. After years of working with students who struggle with learning what they consider to be boring subjects, I've amassed countless creative techniques to help students better process difficult information and retain knowledge. My teaching philosophy is based on patience, positive reinforcement, and the breakdown of difficult material into easier-to-process parts. I believe no student should ever have to feel unintelligent. We've all fallen behind on schoolwork at some point and we've all encountered a few subjects that just wouldn't stick, but this in no way reflects our capabilities to learn.
