I earned a Bachelor's degree in Biology from Colorado University in 2005 and subsequently taught middle and high school life sciences and biology for 10 years as both a teacher in the school system and as a private teacher/tutor with my own company. Along the way, I also learned how to design websites with Wordpress as well as perform successful search engine optimization (SEO).
I have taught science at all grade levels K-12 in the school system with a focus on Biology. Most of my experience is with middle school aged students. I have also taught private science classes for home schooled students in various locations and at my own brick and mortar classroom/lab in Colorado. Now I tutor students online as needed since I live in Ecuador and cannot teach small lab classes anymore.
