I teach through diagrams and working through processes step-by-step. I also like to simplify topics as much as possible before focusing on the details.
My past experience as a lab TA has allowed me to learn how to teach a variety of students.
I can tutor high school or first/second-year university students
I graduated from the University of Saskatchewan with a Bachelor of Science in Biology, Certificate in Biological Research, and Certificate in Sustainability.
I was a Teaching Assistant for the Biol 120 lab for 2 terms, (taught 3 sessions total).
I love to help students see how fascinating biology can be and that topics are not as difficult as they seem!

TEACHING ASSISTANT, UNIVERSITY OF SASKATCHEWAN — SEPTEMBER 2019- APRIL 2020
First-year biology lab TA (Biol 120). Responsibilities include preparing lab activities, helping students one-on-one with activities and questions, and marking quizzes/exams. Topics include prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells, cell life cycles, genetics, and biotechnology
SUMMER STUDENT, SWIFT CURRENT RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT CENTRE — MAY-AUGUST 2016-2019
Responsibilities include collecting data for Time Domain Reflectometry, soil moisture and salinity, plant compositions/prevalence, greenhouse gas flux samples, crop height and maturity, insect damage, crop and weed identifications
Field work included transplanting forage plants (native grasses and legumes), soil sampling, biocontrol for plants in greenhouses, harvesting crops and collecting biomass
Laboratory work included preparing plant, seed, and soil samples for analysis and performing the analysis of carbon and nitrogen compositions
STABLE ISOTOPE ANALYSIS
Analysis of stable isotope content in feathers of semipalmated sandpipers to examine migratory connectivity and carry over effects from environmental contaminants. The project included organizing feathers by origin country, preparing for analysis of isotope content, analyzing quantitative data by statistical and graphical methods. The results of this project will be used in a larger, more comprehensive project by Environment and Climate Change Canada.
THE BIRDS & THE BEES
This project was developed to address the issue of declining species of native pollinators and birds. By combining literature research and interviews with experts, a habitat was designed and built along the Saskatoon riverbank. The site includes bird houses and feeders, as well as a variety of native flowers. An educational component was also included to raise awareness of pollinator conservation, the importance of pollinators and birds in the ecosystem, and how the average person can contribute to conservation of vulnerable species.
The lab component of this project included extracting and analyzing DNA from a mushroom specimen. Genus and species was identified through DNA analysis and compared to prior identification based on morphology. Analysis of spore production and viability through scanning electron microscopy (SEM). A literature component included a review of horizontal gene transfer into and within the Fungal kingdom.
