High school Biology teacher gives straightforward instruction for the Sciences in Calgary.

Methodology

I believe that many concepts in science need to be firmly understood before you can continue. I will assess your understanding by working through problems and asking specific questions before we move on to another subject. I can help you develop your own study techniques and work habits as well to help you succeed in Biology or Science.

Background

I am a High School science teacher that would love to help you with Biology 20 and 30 as well as Science 7-10. I work hard to make sure my explanations are succinct and easy to understand by breaking down complex material into smaller bite sizes and allowing you to show your understanding along the way.
