I started tutoring fellow classmates during the latter part of my time in college and continued on a volunteer basis for some time with underserved middle and high school students. What I most enjoy about tutoring is the "ah-ha" moment I see a student experience. I strive to help students understand foundational principles about the subject we're studying. My goal is to allow students to be more self reliant in order to replicate the process of achieving academic success in the future.... [more]
I've completed Calculus I during my undergraduate degree, which needed a solid understanding of lower level math classes like Algebra I.
I have a B.S. in Biology from Suffolk University, and an M.S. in Biomedical Sciences from the Eastern Virginia Medical School. Both degrees have an emphasis on the biological sciences, with many upper level courses.
I completed a B.S. in Biology where my highest math class completed was Calculus I.
I have completed a B.S. in Biology and an M.S. in the Biomedical Sciences, completing courses in both the physical and biological sciences. In addition, I have experience tutoring elementary aged students in math and science.
I received an A in genetics in college, along with working with my genetics professor at the Whitehead institute in Cambridge MA, carrying out experiments characterizing DNA sequences of transcription factor binding sites in Saccharomyces cerevisiae. I feel with my coursework in genetics and molecular biology I am proficient in the subject of genetics to tutor those who request help.
I especially excelled in organic chemistry II, earning an A- in college. I ended up tutoring some of my fellow classmates in college in the subject also. I felt my solid understanding of the concepts allowed me to break topics down for those I helped, allowing them to bridge more difficult pieces of information together, ultimately resulting in a better understanding of the material. This reinforced my knowledge and allowed them to apply their new found knowledge in practical applications.
