Personal Description:

I'm Selena, a PhD student in Conservation Biology at UCT. I may study birds, but teaching and helping people with their studies and otherwise is another lifelong passion! I find great joy in helping others, especially to understand something/a subject the have struggled with, learn something new, and use skills they have developed to improve and achieve what they set out to do. These are experiences that will not only serve them now, but that they can also take with them to ensure success in future.

I have a BSc/Hons in Biology from San Diego State University, & am currently pursuing my PhD with the University of Cape Town. I have many years experience, from teaching assistance, private tutoring, high school teaching, and conducting independent educational workshops.

Tutoring Experience:

My prior professional teaching experience includes:

* 3 years as teaching assistant for a California university biology laboratory/practical unit;

* 3 years at university-level tutoring programme (mainly for disadvantaged, ESL (English as Second Language), first-generation, disabled, or otherwise at-risk students);

* 1 year instructing "jump start"/remedial English practical course (writing & reading comprehension/analysis), for incoming first-year university students from underserved & at-risk communities;

* 4 years private/customised university level tutoring in both California & Hawai'i;

* 1 year teaching high school (grade 11 level) biology at an innovative project-based learning charter school in Southern California (High Tech High, endorsed by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Oprah Winfrey, & Warren Buffet);

* 1 year as independent contractor for leadership/community building workshops for at-risk high school students.

Tutoring Approach:

I take a personalised, one-on-one approach to determine the student's study style and tailor to their assistance needs. This can be over-arching, or subject/topic-specific.
