I'm passionate about learning and teaching! I graduated in 2013 from William Jewell College with a degree in Biology. I am currently in the process of preparing to apply to and attend medical school in the 2016 school year.
After graduating from William Jewell, I had the opportunity to teach experiential Marine Biology on Catalina Island in California (Catalina Island Marine Institute). I worked with students of all ages (3rd-12th grade), and besides biology, I taught students how to snorkel, kayak, and love the outdoors! I am certified by Varsity Tutors to teach general science, life science, earth science, physical science, environmental science, and ecology.
I also love reading and writing. I am an avid reader and love expanding my personal library. While an undergrad, I worked in the Writing Center helping students write and edit their college papers.
Outside of school/work, I am an adventurer. I love exploring new places (urban or wild). While in California, I got hooked on snorkeling and spearfishing. In Missouri, I focus my free time on cultivating relationships around the city, woodworking, thinking about international travel and spending time with my girlfriend!
I also currently work part-time as a substitute teacher. I have spent a lot of time teaching and talking with teachers about student achievement. I look forward to helping you achieve your highest potential in whatever academic pursuit you undertake!
