Witty Science Tutoring
I am well versed in everything from chemistry, biology and ecology to earth science and astronomy. Science is a passion for me, I love understanding how all of science paints a beautiful tapestry of interconnected concepts and I am happy to help you experience and explore what the universe has to offer.
I am in awe of the beautiful interdependent nature of our universe and how we're able to affect and manipulate nature in small ways with the limited understanding we're have. I am so excited to see what new technologies and frontiers will be revealed in the future.

Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new student?
First we establish what subjects they are working on. Then we go through some general concepts in a conversational way so I can gauge their existing knowledge. Afterwards, we discuss their interests outside of education, I use this information to better describe difficult concepts in terms that have personal meaning to the student. We then work together to build trust and practice self guided learning methods as we foster a growing understanding of various topics in relation to the desired outcome.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I worked for 7 years as an arborist, so I have a deep practical knowledge about trees, botany and ecology. I have spent 6 years in college level courses studying biology and general science. In that time I also finished my teaching degree and field experience. I graduated from Metropolitan State University (Denver, CO) in 2019.
Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.
1 session: $45 dollars/hr. Although my prices are negotiable for certain circumstances.
How did you get started teaching?
I have a passion for science, and have been designing a curriculum. Love learning about new things and eternity teaching and discussing science. I was starting to substitute in the school system but COVID-19 has stopped me from getting established, for the moment.
What types of students have you worked with?
I have more experience working with middle school and high school level students. I have worked to a lesser extent with college and adults.
What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?
I recommend that you find a tutor that can relate the information you and your interests. If you have a difficult time connecting to the subject matter it's because you aren't personally interested in what that information means to you. Finding out how something effects you personally brings it home and you're more likely to retain your understanding permanently.
What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?
To be proactive in your conversation with a teacher consider these. What specific information do you need help with? Based on the assignments, projects and tests or otherwise reflect on where you need clarification. Don't just tell your teacher that you need help and make them figure out where you're confused and how to help you. Think for yourself and have an outcome in mind. Do just want to just pass or do you want to know the information?
