Students should be given the tools they need to have a chance at success in life. This is one of several conclusions I made through my bachelor's studies in biology and ecology at Houghton College. Through an internship and volunteer activities, I found myself drawn toward the teaching side of academic studies. I pursued my passion and became a middle school English and Literature teacher. With experience tutoring an elementary school student with their writing, I found joy in teaching students how to access tools that would help them and bolster their strengths and weakness.
Writing, though fun, is only one of my favorite subjects to tutor. I love to tutor biology as it was my first academic passion. I enjoyed my science classes, and I enjoy helping others understand science -and come to at least tolerate biology. Through my experience as a teacher, discovering shared interests and using stepping blocks build toward a better learning experience. In addition, students need to be able to see their improvement, and putting their skills to use is tremendously essential.
Currently, I am pursuing both my Master of Education in biology and my certificate in Teaching English as a Foreign Language. There is always room for improvement, and I strive to also push myself forward and keep learning.

In high school, I discovered my love for reptiles, particularly turtles. I have worked with 12 different species. Meanwhile, in college, I got a minor in writing because I loved writing as a hobby. In college, I also started playing dungeons and dragons. I have also been a big fan of reading and video games since I was small, particularly content that fell within fantasy or science fiction categories.
