I'm a licensed educator and I majored in the geological sciences. I absolutely adore geology and I love helping others learn. 

From my own childhood experience and my experience as an educator, I know where many pitfalls are when it comes to learning new topics and I can help students avoid those pitfalls and achieve the desired outcomes.

The study of the Earth is an inspiring pursuit. I would love to share my expertise with others so we can all increase our appreciation for geology! 
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
2 hours 30 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
