"I have graduate degrees in mathematics and biology and more than 20 years’ experience teaching high school and college students; I have been tutoring for as long, especially in math, science, and writing. My experiences as an educator are diverse, having worked with students from many backgrounds, and I understand that a student’s challenges can be as much about the cultural context and learning atmosphere as about the subject matter. I have taught mainstream Americans, foreign students (both here and abroad), as well as nontraditional students, including those returning to school after a hiatus or those who are the first in their family attending college, and students with different learning styles. If you need assistance putting your studies into context or adapting material to your circumstances and experiences, I can provide guidance and help you develop strategies, complete assignments, undertake projects, and simply take steps to improve your academic and personal success - particularly if your needs include any of these challenges:
Mathematics: I have experience teaching and tutoring students through many levels of math, from remedial basic arithmetic up through calculus. Whether you are math-phobic or comfortable with numbers but unsure of processes, equations, or proofs, I can help you understand quantitative issues in anything from high school math through calculus and statistics. Taking a higher-level math course? Contact me about the course.
Biology, Environmental Science, & Ecology: I am a practicing biologist in these fields and have extensive experience teaching, conducting research, and publishing (with students) in these areas of biology. I can help you if your interests are in any of these fields from the middle school through graduate level.
Test preparation and applications: Are you getting ready to apply to college, to graduate school, for an important job, or an internship? I can help you develop a strategy and prepare for the ACT, SAT or GRE, and can offer guidance in choosing and" less...
