Bachelors of Environmental Science Student with Honours giving High School Biology Help

Methodology

My teaching methods are to approach each new topic with visual, audio, kinesthetic, and reading/writing supports to help a variety of types of learners. Teaching components will include exercises to reinforce memorability and understanding of a subject. I will also provide external supports/links to supplemental exercises that students can use as optional enrichment for a topic.

Background

I am a former Environmental Science Student with a bachelors degree with honours from Acadia University. I began tutoring my second year of university as a teaching assistant in Arctic Biology, Aquatic Biology, Environmental Science, and Geology. I am passionate for the environment, and can offer help with subjects such as conservation biology, chemistry, and basic statistics.
