I have a Master's degree in Public Health and Tropical Medicine from Tulane University and a Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Science from Texas A&M University. I am currently working on my teacher's certificate and am certified to teach life sciences for grades 7-12 in the state of Texas. I have taken all the prerequisites necessary for teaching and have a probationary teaching license from the state of Texas. I know how important tutoring can be in helping a student improve his or her grades and confidence. I have dyslexia/dysgraphia and benefited from tutoring when I was in school. Because of my learning disability, I understand that each student has a unique learning style. In the past, I tutored students from elementary school up to college. I have a love for science, teaching and tutoring, and look forward to working with individual students and helping them to reach their potential.

What might you do in a typical first session with a student?
In my first session I will get to know the student better and understand how or why there are struggling in a particular subject. I will ask them what they like least and best about the subject, and ask them how they think they learn best, whether it be by hands on activities, practice questions or problems, or using drawings or acting out to describe a particular area of a subject.
How do you build a student's confidence in a subject?
I would start by going to back to the basics of the subject and reviewing the concept asking them questions on what material they have learned in the past. We will work our way up to the problem's they are having so that they have the confidence to tackle the more difficult questions.
