My interests in the biological sciences lay at the boundary between basic research and application. In other words, I am passionate not only in the discovery of novel information, but also the practical application of that information in the context of human society. I strongly believe in scientists taking an active role in spreading science education and literacy as a part of this process, and this is what drove me to seek a position as a tutor for Varsity Tutors. I graduated with my Masters of Science in Ecology in May 2016, and while I had three years of teaching experience during that time, I felt the need to continue doing this kind of work. My personal goal for each student will be to help them not just learn the material, but learn how to learn better and use their strengths to become self-sufficient scholars in the Biological Sciences. It is my belief that by focusing on the learning processes, students become better critical thinkers. This increases their scientific literacy and, most importantly, allows them to share that knowledge with others.
