I am incredibly passionate about the subjects I teach. I find that such zeal is important when teaching sciences as it eliminates the tediousness and frustration that is normally associated with Math and Sciences. Additionally, I am passionate about teaching and take special interest in the development of my tutees as students and scientists rather than as individuals who can pass tests.
Based on my Pre-Med background in College I have extensive knowledge in Biology and Math as well as Chemistry in which I earned my Bachelor's degree.
I am also very patient and will take whatever measures and time that are necessary for my students to succeed at their tasks.
I am also able to communicate well. My communication skills have been culminated through work as a tutor/mentor, in residence life as a Resident advisor and as a debater. In college, I was a class mentor for 3 semesters through the Grinnell College Science Learning Center. I taught General and Organic Chemistry. Part of that job was to attend all class session and in conjunction with the Professor assist students in grasping concepts in the subject areas. Also, outside of class hours I conducted 2 sessions weekly to provide supplemental lectures or assistance with assignments. I was also a personal tutor in General and Organic Chemistry.
Additionally, I was a lab assistant for General, Organic and Inorganic Chemistry. I was responsible for instructing and helping students carry out lab assignments.
During High School I tutored elementary students in English and Spanish. I have also completed a number of education courses in college including Methods in Science and Math Education. I have also undergone extensive training and attended a number of workshops on tutoring.
I will ensure that any student under my charge truly learns all of the requested material and more.
