ExperienceI am a tutor from Seattle, Washington. With vast experience teaching a variety of science courses at the college level and degrees in biology and marine science, I can confidently tutor many science subjects, including biology, environmental science, earth science, and ecology. My teaching experience includes working with students that come from divergent backgrounds and are at varying levels in biology. This experience has enabled me to aid my students in various ways, such as assisting them in gaining the necessary knowledge in these science subjects so that they can move on to more advanced courses, and instilling in them good study habits. Test preparation is another area in which I also can help my students. I studied at Western Washington University and went on to earn a Bachelor of Science in biology and a Master of Science in marine science. I took various courses while going for my degrees, ranging from different biology topics to ecology. My thesis was on the mutualistic symbiotic relationship that exists between a host species like the Anthopleura elegantissima and different types of unicellular algae of the intertidal ecology. This cnidarian host species, which is also known as an anemone, provides both nutrients and protection for unicellular algae, such as dinoflagellates and chlorophytes. These different algae species live within the cells of the anemone, providing photosynthetic carbohydrates that the anemone uses as food. My thesis examined how different environmental factors could affect not only the population and distribution of these algae species in its host but also the intertidal habitat. My work experience includes 18 years of teaching various science courses, such as biology, botany, and zoology at different institutions, such as North Seattle College, Shoreline Community College, and Edmonds Community College.
