EducationBSc in Biology, Penn State
MBA, Univerity of Phoenix
ExperienceI'm a biotech professional currently working for a Fortune 50 company; I have seven years' experience in the industry, mostly at some of the largest pharma companies in the world. I hold a B.Sc. in Biology from Penn State University and an MBA from the University of Phoenix. My career requires use of advanced math, statistics, chemistry, biology, and mechanical skills on a daily basis, honing my knowledge through constant use. I have many years working as a private tutor for grade school, high school, and college, and also as a trainer and subject-matter expert in the biotech and hospitality industries, so I'm experienced in teaching adult learners as well as children.
I also have three young children in school - all with As and Bs in their subjects. I work well with grade school and middle-school aged children, and find I can often break down topics to be readily accessible to even young learners and keep learning interesting. I was hyperactive as a child (some might say I still am), so I know what it's like to crave learning but to be easily distracted. Also, two of my three children are in speech therapy, so I am familiar with speech difficulties and delays, but these two children are also part of an accelerated learning program in our district due to their aptitude and drive.
Additionally, I have experience in most of the other hard sciences (physics, earth sciences, and so on) as well as a number of psychology subsections (developmental, cognitive, organizational/engineering, and biological). I am well-versed in English topics, spanning literature, sentence mechanics, vocabulary, rhetoric skills, persuasive writing, technical writing, and fiction. I also possess excellent mathematics skills covering algebra, geometry, trigonometry, statistics, and business math.
Since I began tutoring professionally, my students have run the gamut of English topics (mechanics, rhetoric, literary criticism, vocabulary), most of the science topics (with a particular focus on chemistry, biology, and physics), and most of the math topics (specifically algebra, geometry, and trigonometry). I've provided assistance with both SAT and ACT prep, ASVAB prep, and straight college counseling, helping with applications, essay writing, and tips/prep for interviews.
I tutor from my home or through online avenues (WyzAnt, Skype, Google+) only - I have availability weekday evenings and some weekends. I do offer a discount to students who choose to commute to meet me in person. Please inquire!
HobbiesI enjoy writing, video games, spending time with my wife and children, playing guitar, and teaching.
