Ecology student with an environmental justice focus offering Ecology and Biology lessons remotely

Methodology

I feel comfortable teaching ecological and biological topics to students ranging from the elementary level to those in their junior year of college. I see biology as a big puzzle that can be put together piece by piece, and that cannot be completed without all pieces present. I focus on building a foundation of knowledge around the connections within biology to better prepare a student to understand overall concepts. I value having patience to ensure the student has a strong understanding before moving onto to more critical thinking.

Background

I am a Senior in the Integrative Biology program at Oregon State University with a focus in Ecology. I have also earned my Chemistry minor. I've devoted most of my coursework to ecosystem vulnerability and climate change dynamics in hopes to gain a career in environmental justice! I also run an animal sanctuary in California with my mother and love to talk about animals.

Rates

Rate for online lessons : $20/h

Details

I am willing to work out pricing based on a student's needs. Additionally, if there are supplemental materials or lessons that you'd like me to plan out in advance, or to set up long term lessons for a single student, I would love to talk about long term pricing.

RESEARCH EXPERIENCE:
Feb 2019 – Sept 2020
Undergraduate Research Assistant, Dept. of Botany and Plant Pathology, OSU
Supervisor: Cynthia Ocamb, Ph.D.
Lab conducts research on pathogen biology and disease management, primarily fungi affecting Oregon vegetable and field crops. Assisted in studies understanding fungi species dynamics and mitigation through seed treatment. These studies required both in-lab experiments and field sampling. Aided M.A. student Taylor Bate’s research in the efficiency of fungicide seed treatments.

Jan 2020 – Present
Research Volunteer, Benthic Ecology lab at Hatfield Marine Science Center, OSU
Supervisor: Sarah Henkel, Ph.D.
Dr. Henkel's current research focuses on how human induced stressors, primarily renewable energy devices, influence species within benthic communities. Most of volunteer work has consisted of sorting and weighing out trawled ocean floor invertebrate samples by species to be assessed for caloric output to higher trophic levels.

Sept 2020 – December 2020`
CERM research project, Pinniped influence on OOI moorings, Oceanic Observatories Initiative
Mentor: Johnathan Fram, Ph.D.
Three-month study investigating if pinniped presence influences solar input powering OOI moorings. Project focused on pressure data collected from four moorings located off the coast of Washington and Oregon. Statistical analysis of the pressure done through R to develop pressure timelines encompassing 2015-2020. Pressure results were compared to solar input and pinniped phenology on the same timelines to determine if there is a correlation. Poster presented December 2020.

I have co-authored several publications in botany at Oregon State that cannot be listed for privacy reasons.
