What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I first want to learn more about the students learning needs and goals and their availability to meet.  I would then give a diagnostic assessment to determine areas of strength and weakness.  Then I would work with students on their assignments or create a mini curriculum with worksheets and lessons to help them achieve content mastery.  I would use checks for understanding and some time of cumulative assessment to ensure their understanding.  

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I taught high school science for 2 years in Pasadena, Texas.  Specifically, I taught about 300 students total over 2 years, and I taught 9th grade biology in year one, and 10th grade chemistry in year 2.

I obtained a Master of Art in Teaching (Secondary Integrated Science) from Eastern Michigan University in 2016.  I obtained certification to teach 6-12 grade sciences (biology, chemistry, physics, earth science) in the State of Texas.

I also have experience in private tutoring for geometry, chemistry, algebra, and SAT.

Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

I charge $60 per lesson, and I offer the first lesson free of charge.

How did you get started teaching?

Before deciding to go to education school, I privately tutored students.  I also decided to work as a paraprofessional to help special needs students in inclusive middle school classrooms for a year.  That helped me see more of what teaching looks like, and led me to pursue a Master's Degree in Education.

What types of students have you worked with?

Middle school and high school students, ELL students, and Special Education students.  

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I recently completed a second master's degree (Master of Science in Physiology) at the University of Cincinnati.  This was a very challenging program built for pre-medical students, and I did exceptionally well.  I also received acceptance to the College of Medicine at the University of Cincinnati. This will allow me to pursue a career as a future physician.

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

I would advise a student to find someone with valuable experience teaching that content area, a proven track recor of success, and someone that has a patient, caring disposition.
