Greetings, Need help studying math or science? Well you've come to the right profile. Let me introduce myself and tell you why I'm qualified to be your tutor. My name is Austin. I graduated with a bachelor of science degree from Sam Houston State University in December 2012. I majored in general biology, but my curriculum involved several math, physics, and chemistry classes. I minored in business communications, which involved public speaking and technical writing courses. I mention this b... [more]

Algebra 1

Since grade school, I've developed a deep interest in problem-solving, especially in mathematics. I have a strong grasp for mathematical principles, and I can help your student understand key concepts, such as finding least common multiples to multiplying and dividing fractions to graphing quadratic functions. I am confident that after several one-on-one sessions with me, your student will never again be hesitant to "solve for X," or perform any other basic algebraic expression. I look forward to helping you succeed in Algebra!

Algebra 2

Since grade school, I've always grasped and excelled in mathematics, particularly in algebra 2. This is partly because I had excellent teachers throughout my academic career; and partly because I'm a musician, so I quickly recognize patterns and know how to efficiently solve equations. In 2014, I worked with two algebra II students who were struggling to pass. Over a few months, I built great relationships with both students and their parents. By increasing their content mastery and improving their test-taking skills, both students boosted their averages to modest B's.

Biology

I have a Bachelor of Science in Biology, received from SHSU in December of 2012. I was an officer in the Beta Beta Beta National Biology Honor Society (Jan 2010 thru Dec 2012). As a member of BBB, I regularly tutored biology students in subjects ranging from botany to cellular biology.

Prealgebra

I've always excelled in mathematics, particularly Prealgebra. Perhaps it's because I had wonderful teachers throughout my academic career, or perhaps it's because my "learning style" involves recognizing patterns, which helps me solve equations.

Zoology

As an Honor student and member of the TriBeta Biological Honor Society, every week I was required to tutor students--both science majors and non-science majors--in their science courses. These courses ranged from Intro to Biological Concepts to Advanced Cellular Biology and Genetics. I have successfully completed the zoology lecture & lab course required for Sam Houston science majors. I can assist students with study habits, learning techniques, and understanding basic principles of the following four zoology subjects: 1. Evolutionary biology 2. Behavioral biology 3. Ecology 4. Taxonomy
