I received my Bachelor's Degree in biology and Education from Augustana College in the Quad Cities and went on to teach biology, physics, earth science, and chemistry for three years in Chicago. It was during this time that I was named WGN TV's Teacher of the Month for the greater Chicagoland area for innovative practices in the classroom.
Shortly thereafter, I went back to graduate school to get my Master's Degree in English from DePaul University where I worked with teacher candidates on their certification exams and doctor students on their papers. During this time in Chicago, I ran my own private tutoring practice, catering to local high school students in a variety of subjects including english, history, mathematics, and science.
I firmly believe that relaying seemingly complex ideas through a means students can relate to is a cornerstone to instilling confidence and comprehension in any subject matter.
