My name is Olivia and I have been a high school and middle school teacher for four years. I have a PA State Teacher Certification in Biology (7-12th grade) and Secondary Science 7-12th grade. I also have a Maryland Teacher Certification in Biology 7-12th grade. I have four years experience teaching middle school science and have taught high school Biology, middle school Life Science, high school Physical Science, middle school Earth Science, Algebra I, and elementary through high school physical education classes. For the past three years, I had been teaching middle school science for 6th and 7th grade.
My strengths as a teacher include creating engaging and exciting lessons along with using researched based methods of making the content more memorable and to help students tackle the challenging aspects of a subject. I am able to build good rapport with each student and infuse humor into lessons which increases their motivation to succeed. With my experience in Common Core Curriculum and additional coursework, I am able and well equipped to tutor students in not only science, but also in Math, English, Reading, Writing, and Study Skills.
I graduated from Grove City College with a BS in Biology. I have worked as a tutor/counselor for underprivileged youth in a summer enrichment program and with at- risk youth as an instructor. I have also tutored high school students in Biology. My experience motivating students and making learning enjoyable could help your struggling student.
