Dear Student,

My name is Zeba and I love interacting with people--whether it's in a classroom setting, one-on-one, or on a professional level. I have experience in tutoring ever since I can remember because I have three younger siblings.

Professionally, I have served as a tutor/mentor for incoming freshmen at the university level. This involved subject tutoring as well as guidance with regards to degree progress.

I have a strong passion for biology and how the human body works, hence my bachelor's degree in forensic science (with a concentration in biology and minors in chemistry and criminal justice studies). As a recent college graduate applying for a master's degree, I am seeking a part time job. The reason for pursuing tutoring is two-fold for me: I enjoy teaching others and I enjoy the subject.

I am also very dedicated to whatever I am pursuing at the moment. As your child's tutor, or your tutor, I will try my best to help in any way possible and employ a number of resources until the desired result is reached. Tutoring can take many forms depending on how committed the student is. I can come up with a lesson plan to teach the topic, design quizzes or exams, and help make study guides/notecards. My goal is to provide multiple sources for the student to efficiently grasp the concept. In addition, I not only use the textbook, but resources available online that the student can access on his/her own time.

I look forward to meeting and tutoring you!
