I absolutely love teaching! I have completed education coursework and implement tried-and-true teaching strategies for learners of all types. Learn biology outdoors on a field trip! Learn chemistry by cooking! Learn math using rockets! I love using innovative teaching strategies to get you excited.
I have a bachelor's and master's degree from the University of Michigan in Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental Biology and am currently a PhD student at Stanford University.
I have won numerous awards, including being nominated as the top student in the Life Sciences at the University of Michigan, a National Science Foundation Doctoral Fellowship, being nominated as a Stanford Graduate Fellow, and a finalist for the Rhodes Scholarship.
I have held positions as a STEM instructor at several non-profit organizations, including the Grand Traverse Conservation District and Inland Seas Education Association.
I have experience teaching at the university level as a Graduate Student Instructor at the University of Michigan.
I have facilitated STEM Education programs for high school students and worked as a high school debate coach for 2 years.

Callie doesn't simply tell you the information or the facts, instead, she guides you to understand the process. She focuses on preparing you to understand concepts, use the right though process for exams, and apply those concepts to challenging application problems on exams. You will learn how to learn concepts, teach yourself concepts, understand challenging material, and learn how to tackle challenging problems. I highly recommend Callie!
