My overall teaching approach involve a variety of strategies. I believe in multi-sensory methods that allow the student to hear, see, model, diagram and write information in order that the information may be retrieved easily. I am very patient.
I have over 25 years teaching college, high school and middle school Biology/Life Science. I am currently finishing my PhD in Science Education. I have a Masters in Biology with a chemistry/geology minor. Many of my students have entered the medical field or have become Biology majors. In 2013, I was honored as the Texas Medical Association Middle School Science Teacher.
I tutor for $20 dollars an hour. Group rates are considered.

Mrs. Klammer knows how to teach material in a creative and fun way that engages students and sparks a love of learning! She understands students, appreciates them for who they are, and knows how to reach kids who might have not originally been excited about learning! As a school counselor, I always love to see students engaged, and happy about their class and teacher. Mrs. Klammer is fantastic; a real A+ in my book!
Elizabeth is AWESOME in so many ways. She strives to be top notch at everything she does.
Its truly amazing to watch her teaching. I watched videos of her teaching and it makes me wish my teachers had been more like her. They way she explains stuff is just great. I cant say enough good things about her.. Shes patient kind and truly cares for for students family and friends..
I have worked with Mrs. Klammer during summer camps at St. John’s Episcopal school. She is great with all ages! She takes her time to explain the problem or assignment at hand and displays great patience. Mrs. Klammer is a wonderful professional and knowledgeable teacher! Truly blessed to know her and to have worked with her.
