Educational background: BS from California State University-Monterey Bay in Environmental Science, courses completed toward MPP at George Mason University, and currently working towards a MA in Education at University of Rhode Island.
I have two years of experience teaching Biology, Chemistry, Geometry, Statistics, Pre-Calculus, Physics, Calculus, Trigonometry and Algebra to Fairfax County students; two years developing educational materials for national nonprofit organizations (National Audubon Society, National Environmental Education Foundation, and Restore America’s Estuaries); three years guiding tours and curating exhibits for the Sierra Natural History Museum. While in college, I worked as a Teacher’s Assistant for the Biology department and led laboratory sessions for introductory courses.
My favorite subjects to tutor are Biology and Pre-Calculus. Both are challenging subjects to understand, and I enjoy helping students conquer them. I believe that students learn best when they are comfortable, and my tutoring style reflects this belief. My ultimate goal as a tutor is to frame the subject matter in a way that can best reach learners of all types.
I love being outside. On weekends, you can find me hiking at local nature preserves and walking along one of southern Rhode Island’s many beaches. I also love working with animals and have years of experience with difference wildlife centers and animal shelters in California and Virginia.
