"Hello! Thank you for visiting my profile. I recently graduated from the University of Bridgeport with a Master of Education in Secondary Education. I received my BS in Geology from Georgia Southwestern State University in 2011. I plan to teach High School Earth Science within the next year. I am currently student teaching at a local high school.

I have experience tutoring introductory Geology courses and teaching middle and high school science. Before returning to school, I worked as a Geoscientist in Houston, TX for four years. I bring with me years of industry experience and teaching experience to make understanding science easier using various study skills. Those skills include, concept mapping, mastering content specific vocabulary, and organizing information.

I am on a mission to improve science literacy and inquiry. If you have any questions, please send me a message. I am here to help any way that I can. I look forward to learning with you.

I have the ability to scaffold material for young learners so that they are able to apply the content in real-world situations. I am equipped with a variety of instructional techniques to ensure the success of the student.

Tutored introductory college level Geology courses for various types of learners. I utilize various study skills and learning methods to ensure the content is understood and can be applied. I also have experience teaching Biology and Chemistry to middle school students.

Proven vocabulary strategies for any content area. Semantic maps, word maps, vocabulary study cards, SQ3R, word sorts, etc.
