I am a graduate of Belhaven College in Jackson, MS. I have degrees in Psychology and Elementary Education. I also have 32 hrs of Microbiology specific classes. I am currently working towards my ESE (Exceptional Student Education) certification. I also participated in and completed the University of Utah's Summer Genetics Institute, summer 2014. I have taught in Pasco Co. for 8 yrs. For most of those 8 yrs I have taught on a mostly individual basis. I tutor Biology, Life Science, Physical Science and Psychology. Biology is my favorite subject to tutor. I really enjoy genetics and showing students how genetics affects them. I believe that all students can learn, it just may take longer for some students than others or they may need it explained in a different manner. I try to use techniques that meet each learning style. I particularly enjoy hands on projects and watching/seeing what students come up with. I also enjoy the forensic side of science and using it to teach science concepts. In my spare time, I enjoy reading suspense novels, working in the yard- particularly the flower beds and caring for orchids, watching action movies and spending time with my family.
