For the past 6 years I have been teaching online, and for the past 2 years I have been offering private lessons tailored to student interests. I like teaching ESL lessons for several reasons. Firstly, I get to meet learners from different parts of the world and learn about their cultures. Secondly, I find it challenging and interesting to incorporate learner interests into the lessons. This not only helps in making the class more engaging but also encourages learners to speak more.

I have taught in-person Biology labs that frequently used microscopes and slides made in lab. Incorporating technology allows students to aim to support your student in building confidence and practical skills through guidance in their studies. Although books have their uses, nothing compares to the benefits of hands-on learning and witnessing the marvels of Biology. My love for Biology stems from its deceptive simplicity, which upon deeper examination reveals a truly astounding complexity.

My area of study is Biology, and I hold a Bachelor of Science degree where I learned about mammalogy, ornithology, ecology, marine biology, microbiology, histology, and aquatic invertebrates. In my co-op lab classes, I gained hands-on experience with microscopes and learned how to create slides rather than just viewing prepared ones. I am now providing microscope classes through Outschool, where students are encouraged to use their compound or digital microscopes during open lab time. I utilize digital cameras to share my own microscope view,  as well as encourage students' to share their microscope view. While I value traditional lab techniques, I also believe that technology can enhance the lab experience when appropriate. see more clearly what they are looking for and share what they are seeing, allowing for an enhanced lab experience.

Personally I am an ever curious Biologist - I've studies mammalogy, marine biology, ornithology, microbiology, and more. In my classroom I encourage my students to explore and follow there curiosity, ask questions and find answers. I enjoy incorporating traditional learning with technology, helping students gain a deeper understanding material in practical ways. 
If there are any areas where students need extra support during class, please don't hesitate to contact me regarding their interests.

Please feel free to let me know the specific areas you would like your child to focus on.  Your input as a parent is highly valued, as my goal is to help your child excel.
