Soils technician working in WA state. 3 years experience in tutoring high school STEM, 4 years experience in training/ management. Field, course, and lab experience in general bio, chem, and hydrology

Methodology

I have taught STEM subjects, English, and career/ resume building to students with diverse learning and cultural backgrounds.


My teaching philosophy: Every student is different and every subject can be framed in a way that makes sense to that student. I will do my best to find that frame and a practicing scheme that works with the student's learning style.

Background

I graduated with an environmental science degree. I have taken upper division and honors coursework in ecology, general biology, geology, chemistry, soil and water science, and GIS. Between 2013 and 2015 I regularly tutored 6 high school underclassmen in geometry, algebra, precalculus, biology, chemistry, Spanish and English. All passed their classes and I received positive reviews from guardians. From 2016 to 2019 I served in leadership positions in food service while in college and was responsible for training and shift management. While in the Peace Corps I worked with local teachers to start a 50- student school club focused on leadership and science-based gardening techniques.

Full resume, references, contact info available upon request.
