Science and Math Specializing in Biological Sciences and AP courses.

I believe that every student can learn. This has been my cornerstone philosophy in teaching my entire career. I believe in engaging my students in the learning process and challenging them to learn concepts that can then apply to any problem. I believe that fun is an integral part of learning and try to incorporate it into every lesson. I have been involved in education for over 25 years. I have taught from 5th through graduate school. I have specialized in teaching children that are low pe... [more]


Biology

I have taught Biology in the middle school, high school and at the college level. I have also taught advanced graduate specialty classes. In addition, I have taught science methods courses to new teachers and interns. I have a broad background in medical science and research. I have published and presented several scientific papers. I have also worked for many science research institutes including, the City of Hope National Medical Center. USC School of Medicine, Kenneth Norris JR Cancer Research Hospital. NASA and JPl. I have a degree in Biology, graduate degrees in Life Sciences, Pathology and Education. These broad experiences and content knowledge allow me to teach key concepts and information in unique and meaningful ways to students.

I have also taught basic ecology and environment science at the High School, AP and graduate level. I have developed ecology and environmental science curriculum for both jr. High School and High School levels. I enjoy teaching these course very much.


ACT Science

I have been successfully tutoring students in standardized science tests for several years. All of my students have been successful on both the ACT or the SAT II science. My broad science educational background, especially at the graduate level provides me insights as to how to teach the more complicated topics. In, addition I have 16 years' experience at a graduate level university, teaching both science and math methods to master's level mathematics and science teachers. I believe all of this experience and education make me an excellent tutor. I can quickly diagnose weaknesses in content knowledge and develop an effective plan to support students raising their scores.


Elementary Math

I have been teaching for 25 years, 16 of which have been at the university level in a teacher education program where I taught math and science methods to both elementary and secondary teachers and well as special ed. I am a patient and resourceful teacher that will find a method that works for your student to provide meaningful learning. I also have won awards for my elementary after school math and science programs. This program was focused at elementary students k through 6th. I have tutored students from 2nd grade to graduate school.


Elementary Science
