- Teaching since:
I am a UCF senior biology student and undergraduate researcher in a population genetics lab. My interests in biology include quantum biology, ecology, and avian population genetics.
I got my start as a tutor at the University of Central Florida Writing Center, tutoring writing to a variety of students in a variety of subjects. Since then I have been tutoring writing and biology to the general population.
I focus on learning, as well as grades. It is my ultimate goal that the student not only learn the material and truly understand it, but, indeed, learn how to be an even better learner. To achieve this goal, I use a variety of methods, and really test my students with challenging questions to gauge their understanding of the material. I hope to achieve not just comprehension, but an appreciation for the subject. I do this through fun anecdotes and experiments, as well as interesting facts about the subject. To foster a deeper understanding of the material, I may also delve into related fields to help explain a concept more thoroughly, in short, to show the "why" and "how", not just the "what".
