My love of teaching derives from my glutton for knowledge and lifelong love of learning! As a Colorado State University alumni and graduate, I learned that academic excellence comes from passion, dedication, and hard work! I understand that a subject that is very dry and boring can be very difficult to get through, however, I believe that motivation comes from an instructor?s passion. I can make mathematics and science fun for you! I received my Bachelor of Science in microbiology/biotech... [more]
Algebra is the language through which we describe patterns and is rudimentary to a lot of future subjects such as chemistry, physics, and even biology. Once you achieve an understanding of algebra, the higher-level math subjects become accessible to you. I strongly believe that basics must be first understood in order to understand the foundations of other subjects. Without the basics, it's impossible to move forward. Having many years of experience teaching math and having taught algebra in high school and college will help me to guide the student to their goals. With my background and passion for tutoring I am confident I would be a great tutor in algebra 1.
You've completed algebra 1 and understood topics of linear equations, inequalities, and functions. I now welcome you to algebra 2, which is touch on systems of equations, inequalities, exponential and logarithmic functions, logarithms, imaginary and complex numbers, conic sections, and matrices. Don't let these fancy terms fool you. My passion and years of teaching math at the college level make me a great candidate to tutor algebra 2. I have helped tutor numerous students in this area. I feel very comfortable helping students reach their goals in this area.
Biology is the basics to a more in depth and specific topics such as Microbiology (which is what my degree is in), Physiology, Food science, Medicine and even some Animal science degrees. Biology is a fun topic when you can understand the concepts and materials. As a microbiologist and a candidate for the MCAT 2015, I often have to review my biology extensively!
As a scientist, I am required to know chemistry and often review them for my MCATs.
As a pre-medical student, I often have to review physics for the MCATs.
Helping students (K through college, adults) with pre-algebra had always been my passion! I've started out assisting my friends in math in middle school (since I've always received better grades than them), then moved to high school and college, where I aced every exams in math. My expertise in mathematics had encouraged me to tutor. Students who were tutored under me find themselves approaching problems with ease and in the process had a lot fun!
Big, fancy term, right? Don't be intimidated or fooled! Breaking the terminology down, look at the prefix, tri-, or "trig-" as it's sometimes called) means three, which you can already see that in math, the only shape that has three sides is the triangle. You would be right! Trig is the study of the properties of triangles. Why is it important? It's used in measuring precise distances, particularly in industries like satellite systems and sciences like astronomy. You might think I'm weird, but trigonometry is actually my favorite topic in math. I could honestly do trig problems all day! Out of the students in my class in high school, I was the only one who scores 100% on every trig exams!!! I really love trigonometry! Students who were tutored under me find themselves approaching problems with ease and in the process had a lot fun!
I took a 300 level course of Human Gross Anatomy and a dissection Human Gross Anatomy in college. Studying anatomy is heavily on memorization, but also understanding how each muscles, bones, veins, arteries...etc is named. When you have a strong understanding these names, you will have an easier time memorizing them. Being pre-med, it is recommended that I review anatomy because when you don't use it, you lose it!
The world between microbes and humans are different, but there are similarities as well, these microbes want to survive and replicate, harm others while some want to help others...just like humans! Obtaining my Bachelors of Science is in Microbiology gave me the opportunity to see that different world of prokaryotes, bacteriology, virology, and other parasites. I can teach you about that spectacular world!
When I took my first ACT math, I scored a 16 on the exam, which isn't very good! After studying intensively and understanding the concepts and questions, I retook the ACT math for the second time and scored a 36, which was a huge improvement compared to a 16. I received admissions from several Colorado Universities and was above the standard curve scores in comparison to other students. I understand how hard the ACT was during the time of test taken, especially since I took the ACT twice. I can help you tremendously improve your score!
