Hello! I am a private tutor with a BS in Biology, currently pursuing a masters degree in health sciences! I have been tutoring since 2007 and I specialize in AP Bio, IB Bio, Intro to Bio and any other form of College Freshman Biology. All of my students have seen their test scores increase on the following test. I also happen to be a self published author and my work has been read around the world. In addition to creative writing, I am WyzAnt certified to tutor Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Biolo... [more]
I am a graduate of Canisius College in Biological Sciences and I have tutored biology before and even helped my student bring her grade up 20 points on the next test with only a few hours of study together. I'm really excited about biology and teaching it to you!
Read a lot of scientific articles, and got high grades in all my English classes throughout high school and college. Reading is a huge part of writing, and in order to hone one's skills as a writer, one must be a avid reader. Scored a 620 in SAT critical reading, in the 83rd percentile.
Self published authoress, has distributed copies of her work world wide! Former correspondent to NeXt, the magazine written by teens for teens, of the Buffalo News. I love writing, and communicating through the English language. Let me help you make your papers a success!
For elementary level education qualifications, I teach Vacation Bible School to elementary level children every year. I spent three months teaching elementary art classes as an intern. I was also a volunteer baby sitter for the Army National Guard, where I spent time teaching children reading skills. My educational background includes a holistic education in high school, which fostered educational programs such as big brother big sister and tutoring programs where I experienced teaching and tutoring students on the elementary level. I am also in the process of pursuing my masters degree in biology, so that I can teach science in schools and on the collegiate level.
I believe I am qualified to tutor in study skills because of the rigor that my degree in premedical biology required. I am confident in my ability to asses a class and come up with a method of study that is uniquely tailored for success. I have been tutoring since high school and have been constantly adding to my repertoire of study techniques and have passed these successful techniques on to my students who, once having applied the techniques have seen dramatic increase in their grades. My specific tutoring method varies from student to student and is heavily rooted in individualized consultation, taking advantage of such things as; acronyms, flash cards, note taking, text reading, and relationship to everyday experiences.
