First, the bare facts. I graduated from the University of California, San Diego with a Bachelor of Science in Human Biology. Next, it was onto Point Loma Nazarene University, where I earned a certification in Dietetics, or medical nutrition. Then, I completed San Francisco State University Dietetic Internship program and rotations at Seton Medical Center. I will be sitting for my Dietetics exam later this year to get my Registered Dietetics certification to practice.
Now, onto the juicy details.
As you can tell from my education background, I'm a science nerd. My favorite subject is nutrition, so don't get me started on it or I really will talk your ear off. My other favorite subject is human anatomy and physiology, and, yes, you are allowed to make "Let's Play Doctor" jokes all you like with me because, let's face it, those never get old.
So why English and writing? Well, if four years of Latin have taught me nothing else, it has certainly taught me better grammar. But outside of that, English has always been one of my favorite subjects in school and writing my favorite pastime. I aced many honors English classes and also passed the AP English Exam during my senior year. I joined my high school journalism staff during my junior year and was quickly promoted to editor a year later. That love of writing carried over to college where I was a staff writer, and later became senior staff writer, for my school paper, The Guardian. One of the benefits of being editor (besides the phenomenal cosmic power) is that it not only makes you an excellent grammarian but also an eagle-eye proofreader. No dental coverage though. I know, it’s a crying shame. I hope you’ll choose me as your tutor because I would love to share my passion for writing and my expertise in English and grammar with you.
My tutoring method is simple: I use humor to teach. It not only keeps students interested in dry subjects such as chemistry, but also helps make the material stick long after the first exam. I will invent all sorts of fun metaphors and images to get students to grasp very complex concepts. How effective is this method? I tutored a college freshman in physiology and boosted her from a B- to an A after two exams. I helped her maintain that A for both semesters of physiology. I had a similar effect tutoring students for Fundamentals of Nutrition. After a couple weeks under my wing, they ALL improved one entire letter grade on their subsequent exam. The professor was so pleasantly surprised, she recommended me to all of her colleagues. I can help you improve your grade or, at the very least, have a bit of fun in the process because, let's face it, that biology textbook is no "Mad Magazine." Contact me today and let's see if we can find a more productive use for your textbook other than just a nifty doorstop.
