Graduated from St. Paul's high school in Covington, LA in 2010. Went to LSU for my first two and a half years of college. I then went to nursing school for a year and a half before transferring to UNO to finish my Biology degree. I am now a Master's student studying Ecology and Conservation Biology. My goal in tutoring is to get to an understanding of basic scientific methods and ways of scientifically/strategically thinking about the problem in front of you.
I am currently a TA at UNO and teach 2 Biology labs per semester, with roughly 25 to 30 students in each lab. I have helped tutor my professor's Ecology class as well. I try not to focus so much on their outright grade, rather I try to make sure the person(s) struggling understand the material from different angles and question viewpoints. In Biology, and sciences in general , there are normally multiple ways to get to and to understand a concept or result. Getting the person(s) to see those different ways and strategies helps them in the future for scientific problem solving.
Normally I'll charge 20-25$ per hour of tutoring.
Relevant Courses: Botany, Animal Behavior, Conservation Biology, Ecology and other physiology/population biology courses.
