"Hi, I'm Spencer and I'm a geology and environmental science nerd and it is my goal to have my students feel confident in their own ability to succeed.

I graduated with a B.A. in geosciences from The University of Colorado Boulder in December 2018 and am currently working towards my doctorate degree.

Teaching is a huge, important part of my life. It's important because I know what it's like to struggle to understand something, I know the frustration and I want to alleviate that feeling! I will work to provide many different styles of teaching so you feel comfortable with the material.

I have expertise in the following sub-disciplines in geology: ALL introductory level concepts and classes, natural hazards, metamorphic and igneous petrology, geochronology/radioactive decay, and most importantly, I am 100% willing to learn anything with you!

In addition to geology, I love and have experience tutoring AP Environmental Science. I have tutored students for the 2018, 2019, and 2020 exams and I got a 5.0 when I took the exam myself in 2012.

I am also able to help with: basic R programming/data visualization, scientific writing and editing, scientific reading, resume/CV review, and academic coaching.

Please contact me with any questions you have about my background or about my teaching style. I am willing and happy to adapt to your specific needs. I have taught many students and know that one size does not fit all when it comes to learning.

I am available at short notice!
