Having been a student myself, I completely understand how utterly frustrating it can be to not pick up a lesson right away. Thus, as a tutor, I have made it my goal to help students improve their grades and study skills through guided reinforcement of lessons taught in the classroom. I provide supplemental instruction via additional lectures, quizzes, tests, and worksheets. It sounds like a lot of work BUT I also try to make each tutoring session fun by highlighting practical applications and/or using non-traditional examples for the lessons. For example, instead of using the traditional plastic tiles, I have been known to use M&Ms or Hershey candy bars to teach children their fractions. Kids are usually satisfied by the end of their tutoring session because they realized that not only have they learned their fractions, they can eat them, too!
In terms of my background, I possess a Bachelor's Degree in Biology from Cal Poly Pomona (Graduated Summa cum Laude, McPhee Scholar and Valedictorian with a cumulative GPA of 4.0). I am also pursuing a Master's Degree in General Biology from Mississippi State University. However, I am still based in California as my MS degree is distance-based so there is no worry of me leaving students hanging. I have 9 years worth of tutoring experience and the subjects I have taught include everything from 1st grade Math to college-level Biology and Physiology. In addition, I also have extensive experience with test prep including the GRE, ACT, and SAT.
My former students have come from diverse socioeconomic backgrounds and have ranged in age from first graders to college and post-baccalaureate pupils. I am extremely dedicated to my pupils and regard their academic success with the utmost importance. Thus, I can assure you that I will do EVERYTHING in my power to help you or your child reach your academic goals.
