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.

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.

Chemistry

I can teach up to introductory level college chemistry.

Study Skills

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.
