EducationCSU Monterey Bay - BS, Biology , CSU Long Beach - Credential, Single Subject Credential
ExperienceI am a Southern Californian endeavoring to become a teacher. I attended California State University and graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Biology, with a focus on teacher preparation. I am presently working to finish the Single Subject Credential Program at California State University of Long Beach. Throughout my secondary and postsecondary years, I worked through multiple tutoring and mentoring groups with students from elementary age through adult. I especially enjoy working with high school students, as it seems to be the time when content really starts making sense for students. In many Life Sciences (such as Biology), the material becomes relevant to the students' personal lives, allowing them to sink deeper into topics they hitherto may have passed by. My specialties are Life Sciences, including Biology, Environmental Science, Ecology, Marine Biology, and Cell Biology. I'm also available to tutor Algebra 1 and Geometry. My tutoring method is unique. I have experience with both conventional teaching techniques and the newer Common Core and Next Generation techniques. I use portions of both styles in my tutoring sessions, taking what is effective and leaving the rest. In my personal life, I enjoy outdoor activities such as hiking, gardening, and cycling. I'm also fond of tinkering with mechanics.
