Science educator with a doctorate in science and technology education and 25 years teaching experience can assist students in La Quinta and greater Coachella Valley at all levels with science and math

Methodology

I can assist with lessons in science and mathematics at all levels from elementary through high school and also college undergraduate. I can also assist with persuasive writing and speaking and writing on technical topics. I support an active learning approach that engages students directly in the topic of instruction and assists them building a foundation on which to construct an in-depth understanding of the content. I prefer to use a question and answer or discussion format to promote understanding. I approach teaching as a facilitator of learning, providing resources and prompts to actively involve my students in learning.

Background

I have been teaching science and the associated mathematics since the 1980s. My focus has been on the physical sciences, especially physics and chemistry. I have been a science educator at the college level since the late 1990s, teaching science methods, as well as general education classes. I have worked mainly with high school level students and undergraduates; however, I have also worked with teachers at the elementary level, assisting them with teaching methods for science and mathematics. I also have a journalism degree and have engaged in reporting on science and technical topics. I have worked on science and technology curricular projects supported by state and national education standards. I have mainly taught classes of students at the elementary, middle, high school, and college level. My pre-college students have gone on to study science and technology at the college level and my college students have become elementary teachers and middle and high school science teachers.

William's resume

I have an undergraduate degree (BA) in astronomy from the University of California, Berkeley, where I also studied the history and philosophy of science and persuasive writing. I attended secondary education courses at San Francisco State University to obtain my teaching credential in physical sciences and I taught physics and chemistry at a magnet high school in San Francisco. I entered a graduate program at the University of Illinois where I received a Master's Degree in Journalism with a focus on science reporting and where I also wrote articles for the Supercomputing Center. I continued my education at the University of Illinois, obtaining a Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction with an emphasis on Science Education. After that, I entered a doctoral program at the University of Florida where I obtained my Education Doctorate in Curriculum and Instruction with an emphasis on Science and Technology Education. While at the University of Florida, I worked on educational technology projects and science curriculum projects, one of which was the focus of my dissertation. I took additional science courses throughout my graduate education to expand my understanding in both the life and physical sciences. I have taken additional science courses at the graduate level, focusing on astronomy and physics.
