I am a friendly and ridiculously patient tutor.
I have been tutoring for almost my entire educational career.
I currently attend De Anza Community College and I'm a nursing student. Weekends are when I have the most available time.
My strongest subject is science. I also can teach study skills and organization quite well.
For science I can teach all of the sciences related to the nursing program as well as high school level sciences. I am the best at Biology but I can also teach Chemistry.
I can teach up to introductory level college chemistry.
As I am a Nursing student my area of expertise is the various placement tests required to get into the Nursing Programs.
Since I went to De Anza College I have the most experience with the placement tests to get into various De Anza classes as well as the HESI, which is a placement test that De Anza requires for Nursing students.
I am also able to assist in note taking for classes ranging from grade school all the way to the first two years of college and I can help prepare for any test in-between.
As Nursing is my most recent experience I feel that it is my strongest area, but I am able to strengthen study skills for any of the other subjects that I have posted on my profile.
I have a strong understanding of organizational skills related to effective note taking. As well as helping the student evaluate class lectures in a meaningful way, which is a good way to improve study skills for upcoming tests.

She thinks of Brian as her tutor - friend and respects Brian very much, as of course ...
