UC Berkeley Undergraduate Senior with experience at every grade level

I am currently a rising senior undergraduate studying Biochemistry and Genetics at UC Berkeley with the university and major honors to date and have also been conducting genetics research at the University for about 2 and a half years. I have mentored students at various points in their academic journeys and in a bunch of different capacities, and this experience has served me very well in designing the best plan for my students. I strongly believe in understanding the student's demands firs... [more]


Algebra 1

I have experience tutoring students in Algebra 1 after school at the high school level, mentoring students one-on-one and in small groups to provide them with the confidence necessary to do better in their classes. For these contributions, I received a finalist berth in a teaching award. My strategy with mathematics focuses on noticing areas where the student systematically falls short and then striving to correct the basic understanding that the student may be lacking. I strongly believe that with the right guidance and practice, a student can be set on the path to mastery. This belief has served me very well in pushing students' scores further, and I am happy to provide lessons from my experience.

My strategy with mathematics focuses on noticing areas where the student systematically falls short on multiple questions and then striving to correct the basic understanding that the student may be lacking. It has served me very well in pushing my scores further, and I am happy to provide students with lessons from my experience taking these tests.


Literature

Currently, a senior pursuing a degree through the liberal arts college at UC Berkeley. Have been a core team member, editor, and writer for a science magazine. Have taken multiple university-level courses in critical reading with assessment purely through paper-writing, with a cumulative GPA of 3.85 in these classes. I have co-authored a scientific publication, and have experience tutoring students in effective writing skills as well.


GRE

I have had to take the GRE as recently as last year for admission to graduate school, when I scored a 167 in Verbal and 162 in Quant. I have since assisted many of my peers with the test-taking process. Many of the same test-taking principles that applied to the GRE also apply to other standardized tests, but for many students, it may have been a while since they last had to sit for such a test. I hope to offer my guidance to introduce the fundamental skills necessary to achieve a score the student is happy with, with an approach that seeks to isolate and correct systematic errors in understanding.


Proofreading

SAT Reading

Currently, a senior pursuing a degree in the liberal arts college at UC Berkeley. Have taken multiple courses in critical reading with assessment purely through paper-writing, with a cumulative GPA of 3.85 in these classes. I have experience with critical reading in standardized testing, having scored 1440 on the two SAT Verbal Sections and 167 in the Verbal section of the GRE as recently as last year. I have previously tutored students in effective writing skills and critical analysis as well. I strongly believe that improving a student's score on the SAT Reading section involves noticing areas of systematic error in the student's understanding, and this is not possible without the careful attention of the instructor. This is why I encourage students to take the initiative in problem-solving sessions, to become better problem solvers with a renewed understanding of the problems on the test.
