About the lesson

I am currently seeking an part time evening job and believe that with my current education and past experience tutoring I would be able to assist students in need of assistance with earth, physical, and environmental sciences.
I worked part time as a peer tutor at the University of Akron for 1.5 years while pursuing my Bachelor’s degree in geology. The prerequisite for this position entailed 3 summer training courses that focused on student’s different learning styles. As a peer tutor I was assigned to a specific geology undergraduate course to assist with in class group exercises, and to hold group study sessions and one on one tutoring for students requiring additional help.
As a Master’s student I was a graduate teaching assistant for 3 years teaching geology courses and their lab sections. Following the completion of my degree I spent 5.5 years working toward a PhD in geology, which also gave me additional opportunities to teach geology labs and courses. For one semester in 2015 I also worked as a student athlete tutor assisting students enrolled in physical geography courses.
