Experience

I live in Las Vegas, NV, on a small urban farm with my horses and chickens.  I graduated from both Arcadia University and Western Governor's University, and I am currently employed as a teacher. I firmly believe that when approaching difficult subject matter, it is important to know why it is relevant to learn the material. Presenting real life application in the learning process results in very high retention. I incorporate as many different methods into my teaching as possible such as audio or visual aids, manipulatives, and life references. I also believe that the learning experience, as well as teaching, should be fun, engaging, and free of anxiety. I am an extremely qualified teacher and specialize in biology, AP biology, college biology, pre-algebra, and algebra. However, I am also able to tutor in middle school mathematics, reading, writing, essay editing, English, and French 1-4. I am also able to offer assistance with study skills and organization, as well as SAT and ACT test preparation in English, reading, writing, science, and mathematics. My loves in life are to teach and to spend time with my animals on my farm. I am also interested in some of the performing arts; I was previously a stage performer and fire performer as well.
