I am an enthusiastic educator with a strong desire to see all students succeed. I used to teach high school Biology, AP Biology, and Forensic Science in Colorado for five years. I have a Bachelor's degree in Biology and minored in Education at the Metropolitan State University of Denver.
During my time as an educator in Colorado I developed the philosophy that all students have the capacity to succeed. I have developed various techniques and tools that I can share with prospective clients to not only help a student improve their science scores, but become a better student all around. These practices were taught to my own students and their parents back in Colorado. Education is a collective effort, and I am excited to be part of the Varsity Tutors team and have the opportunity help out students here in Southern California.
Outside of education I enjoy creating my own pieces of artwork with acrylic paint and pastels. I also like play video games in my free time or go for a bicycle ride. I also volunteer at the Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach in their education and husbandry departments.
