Hello! My name is Despina and I'm a recent graduate of the University of California-Riverside where I studied Biological Sciences. Now, having completed my degree, I'm looking to help other people expand their knowledge.
I have worked previously as a tutor for elementary level, as well as higher education schools so I have experience in multiple subjects. Those subjects include: science, math, English, and many more!
As a tutor, I prefer to help students learn through a "question-and-answer" based method because that way each lesson is tailored to that student's needs. However, depending on the student and subject, other options are viable.
Most importantly I try to make learning fun! Each session will be a new experience filled with game-like strategies that help the student retain information and that will help them develop study skills for the future.
If you're interested in a tutor that has prior experience in the field and wants to see others succeed, you've found the right one!

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Anatomy

As a recent graduate of the University of California, Riverside, I took vertebrate anatomy for two quarters. In both classes I received excellent grades in both the lecture and laboratory components. Furthermore, as a tutor for the Academic Resource Center on campus I tutored this subject at a university level, so I feel confident in my ability to help others learn about it.

Biology

As an undergraduate student I studied Biology for four years, and have completed my degree in this particular branch of science. I feel confident that I can help others learn about this subject because I have a vast knowledge of all branches of biology and I have tutored for it before at university and high school levels.

Dentistry

I am a current dental student who has recently taken the Dental Admissions Test and scored in the 95-97% for all subjects. These included Biology, General and Organic Chemistry, Quantitative Reasoning, Reading Comprehension, and Perceptual Ability. My experience within dentistry is extensive because I have over 400 hours of shadowing both general dentistry and some of the specialties, but also because I have volunteered at several dental clinics both within the U.S. and abroad. I am therefore qualified to prepare other hopefuls for the Dental Admissions Test, as well as to help them prepare for the upcoming application cycle via my own experiences and advice.

Greek

Greek is my native language. As a first-generation Greek-American I was taught to speak, read, and write Greek at a young age. I have also completed six years of formal education in this language.

Study Skills

I am an excellent candidate for this subject because I have prior training and experience teaching good study skills to students at the university level. Not only did I tutor students 1-on-1 to teach them how to be able to handle all of their subjects efficiently, I also did group presentations on this matter weekly. My most recent job required me to teach about study skills which is why I have the qualifications to continue to do so.
