I have a Bachelor of Science from the University of California at Davis in Biological Sciences with an emphasis in Microbiology and Biotechnology. I graduated in 2012 with a 3.5 GPA and made the Dean's List several times. The primary subjects I tutor are Biology, Chemistry, English, and Mathematics. I have tutored numerous individuals in the past, ranging from fellow university students to middle school children, and all of them improved their results.

I say all of "them" improved "their" results because it was their hard work alone that led to increasing understanding and scores. I am not the type of tutor who does all the work for the student and, thus, I thoroughly expect the student to apply themselves. I will, however, teach my students how to apply their efforts more effectively when trying to learn a new or difficult subject. My true goal as a tutor is to have my students apply the skills I teach them not only to improve scores on examinations, but to also apply their new-found skills to life as a whole.

If you would like to ask me some questions feel free to message me.
