I am outgoing and enthusiastic with diverse teaching, research, and mentoring experience in Science. I have experience teaching students of all ages and backgrounds and have received positive teaching reviews at all levels. My field and research experience helps me relate the textbook learning to the real world. I increase the interest of students by keeping a light atmosphere and engaging them so they have an active role in the learning. I feel this is important to raise the students' interest in the subject matter and make the learning more enjoyable. Having taught a wide range of courses from classroom Geology to field based Marine Ecology, I have a broad background helping me to adapt to different teaching environments and various curriculum requirements.
I am a very adaptable tutor.
