Defiance with Science; Instilling intrigue of Biology & our Planets Ecology.

Methodology

MSc. Environmental Biology (earned PT, while working FT at Environmental Engineering firm, paying for entire Masters program). Doctorate courses in Toxicology from NIH FAES Graduate School were transferred into the degree program at Hood Graduate School. Prior to this, after completing Undergraduate school, I taught at Echo Hill Outdoor School on the Eastern Shore, atop Cliffs above the Chesapeake. I taught Aquatic & Pond Studies; Herpetology, Pollution Biology, lead groups for 'fossil hunting' and engaged in hands on experiences for groups of children; taken out on workboats-to pull up traps, and meet the 'Occupants of the Bay'. We discussed Runoff, Riparian protection, the idea of 'Watersheds' and animal camouflage (while fish were momentarily examined, 'touching allowed' until the fish had to be released.,among other lessons..crabbing, poaching..and on...).This was one of the MOST REWARDING position I've EVER had, in the short year that I taught.

Background

I began "Assistant teaching in a NYC Public H. S. providing student assistance for Remedial Math students, during class. First planning to be a Veterinarian, I achieved extensive experience and taught (2-yr program) Parasitology to a class of Vet Techs, as a college Senior. My interest was with reptiles, & I interned with Dr. Clyde Peeling. He encouraged me to pursue other biological endeavors. Once graduating, I began consulting in proper care of reptiles for New Pet stores and Shelters. Additionally, I enjoyed 2 graduate courses; Biogeography, & Invertebrate Zoology at Shippensburg University.From the Eastern Shore, to Rockville, MD, I Worked as a Scientist with EPA, MDDEP, USFWS, publishing numerous technical documents, as well as one of my own, and a recent 2013 book of poetry titled "Nature in My Soul". Taught Adults at the Audubon Nature center; Aquatic Insect Taxonomy, & Lead Citizens in the Water Quality Monitoring Program. Involved in 'Hands-on Science' program in Montgomery county at the Elementary level; after-school program in early 2000's. Recent 'Hands-On-Science Teaching' (volunteer) at Laurel Boys & Girls Club. I also served on the local Water Quality Advisory Committee as an Academic Adviser.

Details

I do not drive, and would travel by Metro Access, which must be scheduled at least 24 hrs ahead of an appointment. I can take a taxi (only in Montgomery County), but this is pricier. Nevertheless, I'm very flexible, and genuinely enjoy young people. I am unlikely to 'time' a tutoring session...so as not to interfere with thoughtful learning, and any questions that remain.
My rates are as stated, but can be lower, if someone is willing to bring me back & forth. It will also depend on what level I am teaching.
