In my years of working in various aspects of education, I have designed and taught a variety of science course in a NYC public high school for ten years. Courses included regents living environment, marine science, science research, environmental seminar, and global environment. I worked and tutored students at all levels including students with IEP’s and AP students. I have worked with many students on independent science research projects and have the skills and know how to navigate science competition applications and develop original research projects. I am flexible in my methods, very conversational and use inquiry methods, hands on, and real world examples to help students connect to content. I have a strong sense of how to assess the gaps in student understanding through questioning techniques and prioritize the building and transfer of understandings to multiple contexts. I am patient and sensitive to all types of learner and am able to assess the needs of individual students quickly. If you are a teacher who is interested in help with integrating the CCLS or NGSS into your curriculum, I have experience with curriculum development including UBD, Layered Curriculum, and POGIL (Process Oriented Guided Inquiry Learning). I have also incorporated original research and creative digital technologies into my courses and can help you do the same. Parents who are homeschooling their child and in need of an experienced science teacher can also utilize my services.I am currently a doctoral candidate in urban science education at The Graduate Center, CUNY and teach an action research methods course at Brooklyn College. My hours and rates are flexible.
