A good tutor provides a struggling student with clarity and understanding. More importantly, the tutor enables the student to be successful in the future without needing their help. I can offer my students both of these things.

Although I am new to Wyzant, I have 4 years of prior experience working as a tutor and have helped students of all ages improve their scores in a wide variety of subjects. I know how it feels to struggle with a class, subject, or exam, and because of this I strive to provide my students with a comfortable learning environment. I will not judge you - we all have to start somewhere.

I have a Bachelors degree in Biology and a Masters degree in Physiology & Biophysics. I am qualified to help get you through your most difficult subjects, and look forward to helping you achieve your goals.

Algebra 1

I have helped students of all ages in various math courses, from elementary school to college. Math continually builds upon itself as it progresses, so a strong foundation is crucial for success. If a student lacks a solid understanding of material covered in prior courses then it is very likely that the same material will resurface in the future and greatly hinder their performance. I have completed college-level math up through calculus III. More importantly, I have many hours of experience tutoring students who are struggling with math. I can help get you caught up and make your math courses seem a lot less miserable.

Anatomy

Anatomy can seem very overwhelming. There are many, many complicated structures and nearly an entire language of new terms you are expected to use and understand. I have the knowledge and experience to help get you through your most difficult anatomy course. I have completed a year of medical school anatomy courses at Georgetown University School of Medicine, which included cadaver dissections.

Biology

I have an extensive background in the biological sciences, and can help you excel in your most difficult course. I have spent many hours helping high school and college students understand and succeed in biology. It is a vast subject, and courses tend to cover a lot of material very quickly. Once you fall behind it can be very difficult to catch up. I can clarify confusing topics and teach you how to study effectively. I realize how complicated and intimidating this subject can be and will patiently guide you to success.

Chemistry

I have an extensive background in chemistry and have helped high school and college students in a variety of chemistry courses. Students who lack an understanding of the fundamentals of this subject are unlikely to succeed. Chemistry builds upon a basic understanding of the subject and quickly becomes more complicated. Students who fall behind tend to have a very difficult time catching up on their own. I can help you get back on your feet by addressing your weaknesses and building from there.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have many years of experience working with elementary school children in a variety of situations and subjects. I am excellent with children, and have worked as a substitute teacher at a private elementary school. I am aware that every child is unique, and so are their study habits. I can tailor my approach to each child in order to make my sessions with them both fun and informative. My ultimate goal for young students is that they learn how to excel at school without someone constantly looking over their shoulder. No matter what your situation is, I possess the patience and understanding to help your child succeed.

Elementary Math

Math is one of those subjects that continually builds upon itself, so having a strong foundation is crucial to a student's future success. As a former substitute teacher at a private elementary school, I understand the difficulties math can present to young students and know how to patiently work with them in a way that is both fun and informative.

Elementary Science

Having worked as a substitute teacher at a private elementary school, I possess the patience and understanding required to help your child succeed in science. I am excellent with children and can present difficult concepts in ways that are easy for them to understand. Having received a master's degree in physiology from Georgetown University, I am especially equipped to help your child succeed in science.

Genetics

I have completed undergraduate level genetics coursework, as well as advanced genetics courses during graduate school. It can be a daunting subject for students, and courses often have low pass rates. I can help you succeed in your most difficult genetics course by addressing your weaknesses, showing you effective ways to study, and clarifying difficult topics.

Geometry

I have helped many students succeed in their geometry courses, and I understand how confusing it can be for students. This course introduces many entirely new concepts that do not build off of previously learned material. Regardless, a strong foundation is still very important and any weaknesses must be addressed before it is too late. No matter how lost you feel, I can help you improve your scores in geometry. There are some simple tricks and techniques that make this class a lot easier to handle, and I will gladly pass them on to you.

Physiology

Physiology is a complex subject that often builds off of an assumed understanding of basic anatomy. I can help you identify your weaknesses, establish effective study habits, and comprehend difficult topics. I received a Masters degree in Physiology from Georgetown University, and have completed medical school physiology coursework. I am qualified to help you succeed in your most difficult physiology course.

Prealgebra

If you are struggling with prealgebra, then, unless you get help immediately, you have a long, hard road ahead of you. Don't let prealgebra pass you by without having a solid understanding of the concepts, otherwise it is unlikely that you will be successful in future courses! I have helped many students who were struggling with prealgebra improve their scores and succeed. I have completed many college-level math courses, including calculus, so I am qualified to help you overcome your most difficult course.

Study Skills

Having worked with many struggling students, I am aware that there is not a "one-size fits all" approach that dramatically improves one's study skills. My experiences have shown me that everyone is academically unique, and what works for one student will not necessarily work for another. I have learned a number of techniques that can help you maximize your study skills and improve your performance. Being an experienced student myself, the importance of establishing good habits cannot be underestimated since it is often the key to academic success.
