About this tutor

Tutoring by an educator with 18 years' experience in teaching Spanish, biology, chemistry and general sciences at elementary, middle, and high school levels. I have an M.S. in Biology from Villanova University, have lived and traveled throughout much of Latin America, and was a 2016 New Jersey finalist for the Presidential Award for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching (PAEMST). I also lead students in a campaign to recognize the bog turtle as New Jersey's state reptile, which was officially recognized in 2018. My students have enjoyed and appreciated my knowledge, passion, and patience as they learn.
