I am a recent graduate with a degree in Biological Sciences from the University of California, Santa Barbara. I have a very strong background in the sciences, including several years of research through the biology department at UCSB. I plan on continuing my education in medical school beginning Fall 2014. I tutored in many subjects, mostly science and math, throughout high school and college and began to realize my love for teaching others. I also have extensive experience tutoring elementary and middle school students and helping them transition into efficient study habits early on in their education.
I have a very effective, yet enjoyable approach to teaching that allows students to retain information and feel more confident about their abilities. I am great at finding and addressing the unique needs of each pupil, thus most effectively targeting and improving areas of weakness. I like to create an environment in which the pupil is comfortable and can fully focus on the task at hand. Ideally, I strive to spark interest in whatever subject I am teaching to make learning fun!
