EducationI have had experience tutoring all subjects at the k-12 level, as I was a homebound instructor at one point and worked with students who had IEP's. I have BA in English, BA in Geology with minor in Geography (GIS/Remote Sensing courses), some Graduate work in Education (Secondary concentration),training in organizational leadership by federal program. 15 years non-academic work with companies such as Microsoft and organizations such as NOAA and Tier 1 universities. Extensive tutoring and teaching background in k-12 courses, and lower division college Geology, Environmental Studies & Geography. I love being an educator and love the earth and space sciences. I find it easy to share and explain nature and science - to all age groups! As Einstein is quoted as saying "Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler!"
"Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius -- and a lot of courage -- to move in the opposite direction."
ExperienceOpen to tutoring all grades and all levels K-12. Over 15 years solid teaching/tutoring experience AND SUCCESS with students! Have worked at both high school and college levels in science and math, at several Universities and community colleges. Have also helped edit ESL Theses for students in the sciences (both MS and PhD.) At one University, I was even rated higher by students than tutors who had PhD's [in overall tutoring ability and success rate.] Also, 12 years work in industry, with companies such as Microsoft and organizations such as NOAA/NSF/NASA. Work experience at both Tier 1 universities and at community college levels, particular focus in lower division college Geology, Environmental Studies & Geography/GIS.

Additionally, have worked as a college Admissions Coordinator at a Tier 1 research university.

I contacted Bebe to get advices for my master's thesis. I am not a native english speaker and I needed help to improve my academic writing. Her comments and observations were very helpful, and she gave me valuable advice in terms of grammar, structure and vocabulary. Also, she is very organized, professional, flexible, reliable and was always on time for our appointments. I highly recommend her!
