I can provide lessons on the biological sciences including general biology, life science, environmental science and marine science. I have taught students of all ages and am willing to adjust lessons to the age and ability of the student from K- college. I believe in an integrated curriculum where all subjects work together to create a full understanding of the topic. I am able to modify lessons to best fit the learning style of the student.
I am a versatile professional educator with more than 30 years of experience working in a variety of formal and informal learning environments to help students of all ages to improve their knowledge. I have a Masters in Biology with a teaching certificate. My PhD is in Educational Leadership. I live on a farm and bring real world applications to lessons. I enjoy teaching people of all ages. I am a field biologist by training and love the outdoors. Creepy crawlies and wee beasties are fun! I have spent my life helping people learn about their environment. I love seeing students discover something new.
Rates are the same for the service area. Please give as much notice as possible for cancelations. I will work to reschedule lessons.

Terrie is not only very knowledgeable about biology, but she also has a passion for it that shows in her teaching. We worked together in a homeschool co-op for years, and I also know her through 4-H. She taught my son’s class and he always looked forward to learning from her. I have seen her work well with young children all the way up to adults and I love the way she connects with people.
I highly recommend Terrie for teaching your child. Terrie taught my son Apologia Biology at our homeschool co-op and my son loved her. She teaches with a technique using all the senses, which enables you to retain more information. She is thorough and is well adversed in her area of study. She takes her teaching very seriously and has the experience of one that you are looking for.
Terrie is one of the most intelligent people I know. She has a vibrant love of learning and pursues it with passion. It is rare to find someone who is equally knowledgeable in both the academic realm, as well as practical, real world application of knowledge.
I have known Terrie for nearly 20 years. She was the SeaGrant County Extension Agent and she assisted us in working with local Vietnamese Shrimpers, as well as young high school students attending Camp SeaPort. Her excellent skills as an educator, including her ability to work with people across language barriers are extremely valuable. She knows how to make learning fun, while relating it to the student's own experiences. Finally, her knowledge of biology and other sciences makes her a teacher that you want on your team!
