I graduated Magna Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Science in Cell and Molecular Biology with a minor in Chemistry at Texas Tech University. Currently, I am striving towards my Master of Science in Environmental Sciences and Policy at Johns Hopkins University, and will be obtaining my degree in May of 2022. Being a student myself, I am excellent at pinpointing what each learner needs to succeed. I was a former educator at a community college focusing on biology and microbiology. This college had multiple early college high school programs in place, therefore I have taught at the high school and college level. Prior to that, I was a group tutor for honors biology (known as a supplemental instructor), in which I created review packets and held sessions for the students. More than halfway through my advanced graduate program, I feel confident in my ability to stretch my teaching skills past biology and microbiology, into environmental science as well!
The foundation of my teaching philosophy is to be patient and motivational. I encourage students to take their time and we can always attempt different learning methods or routes until the student truly understands the concept. I focus on reiterating concepts, drawing images and writing helpful key words on the whiteboard, and asking the student questions throughout the lesson to ensure they are grasping the material.
I would love to help you succeed!

I have three dogs at home and recently acquired chickens for my garden. Outside of novice gardening, I love to read and run. I have ran half-marathons, 10Ks and 5Ks before. Any chance I can get, I love to be outdoors and explore the world.
