My name is Austin and I am currently a senior at the University of California, Berkeley. I am majoring in Integrative Biology
with the intention of attending medical school. I have taken college level courses in physics
, biology, chemistry
, biomechanics and many others. I have emerged from three years of college with a 3.68 GPA.
I decided to become a tutor because I personally believe I have the skills to be a great tutor. First of all, I am good at working with adolescences. I grew up with a younger brother and sister, helping them with their schoolwork as they followed in my footsteps. At all of their birthday parties their friends would love being around me, whether it was trying to tackle me on the soccer
field or splashing around in the pool. I understand what kids expect in an older role model and I feel I can be a good influence. Second, I comprehend math and other sciences to a point where I can confidently teach the concepts. In middle school and high school I was in accelerated math programs where I finished geometry
in eighth grade and Calculus
BC in 12th grade. I received a score of 5 on the Biology, Physics Mechanics, Calculus AB and BC AP exams. In college, I realized I had an affinity for the subjects and that was a big part of my decision to try the medical school path. Third, I am organized and a good communicator. I am the secretary of a fraternity of sixty members, placing me in charge of all the logistics of running the house. Fourth, I have had past tutoring experience. In 2013 I tutored a sophomore in chemistry as he prepared for the AP Chemistry
exam. I also tutored a 6th grader and 10th grader in their respective math classes.
Thank you for considering me as a tutor and I look forward to helping your child on the path to success.
