I thoroughly enjoy both teaching and learning. Through my work as a teacher and a tutor, I hope to inspire a love of learning and of science in my students.
I earned my undergraduate degree in Biology. I worked in research for a short period of time before I decided to pursue teaching. I took classes to earn my certificate and then completed my Masters degree in Educational Technology. I have been teaching for 10 years. At my most recent school, I taught high school Biology and AP Biology. I love working with students, helping them to figure things out, and challenging them. Every student learns differently. I enjoy tutoring because I can work with an individual student, learn how that student learns best, and really help him or her to achieve confidence and a high level of comprehension. To truly understand and love science, a student needs to be able to question effectively, problem solve, and think critically. These skills are skills that can be developed most effectively through individualized instruction. I love helping students to excel and to love science.
When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my husband and our two young daughters. We enjoy spending time outside during the nice weather, going to the amusement park, playing on the playground, and taking our dog for long walks. Personally, I also enjoy reading and anything related to science.
