If you select this option, WyzAnt will ask interested tutors to contact you by email if they are able to help. A maximum of five different tutors will email you and none of your personal information, including your email address, will be released.

My status as a senior at the University of Colorado qualifies me to be a tutor. Obtaining a BS in cellular and molecular biology with a minor in biochemistry connects me to academia and provides thorough knowledge of these subjects.

I tutor organic chemistry, general chemistry, and biology in all its disciplines. Evaluating mistakes, assisting with problems, practicing examples and preparing for exams entail my tutoring plan. Being alongside the student allows me the chance deconstruct any pressures the student may be handling scholastically. This allows students a chance to ask every and any questions while receiving undivided help with their class. The moment when my explanations truly resonate with a student is always noteworthy and it is why I tutor. Soon, comprehension will increase and the student no longer feels anxiety but rather excitement for knowledge.

In all cases, I expect the student to derive answers from their own logic. My job is not to give answers. This is balanced by my instruction and input to direct the student to the answer. The success as a tutor is measured by the student's level of understanding. My effectiveness at reaching the student is why others have found my assistance helpful.

While I am tutoring, I am also evaluating my student's learning motif. Being clued into how the student conceptualizes material helps me to tailor my lessons as needed. I do believe this niche separates me from other tutors. My connection with the student, I find, is where their teachers have failed and where I can succeed.

I look forward to your responses.

Thank you for reading,

Brandon

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.

ACT English

As a high school student, I scored a perfect grade on the English portion of the ACT. Also I scored the highest grade in my school on the Colorado Writing Assessment. I have been published nationally and am involved in a publication currently.

Botany

I am qualified through course work in general biology, which included plant physiology, spectral theory and experimentation, and energy conversion. Also qualified through experience as a partial owner of a commercial greenhouse and avid home gardener.

Chemistry

I am qualified for this subject because of my coursework at the University of Colorado. I have completed general chemistry I & II with labs, Organic chemistry I & II with labs, Biochemistry I & II with labs, and biophysical chemistry. These upper-level chemistry courses require much aptitude and effort to pass, and the study-skills I obtained from completing the coursework can be relayed to the student. Furthermore, my section for Organic Chemistry scored higher on the standardized ACS final than any section in the University's history.

English

As a high school student, I received a perfect score on the ACT and SAT English, Writing and Rhetoric sections. I received the highest grade in my entire school on the Colorado Writing Assessment. I was a published poet by age 10 and am currently involved with a publication.

Film

I have received three national recognitions for direction, production, and experimental film and placed first in the Dunn National Film Festival for direction. I was a teacher assistant after graduating high school for a class on advanced film which produced a film that won an Emmy. My mentor in film was an Emmy Award Winner in broadcast journalism. I was offered an internship by Fox21 News. I was also accepted into the Art Institute's film program.

Flute

My qualifications are limited to Native American Flute. I have completed two courses in Native American Flute taught by the most awarded Native American Flutist in America. I have received personal permission to teach his course. Topics include basic playing, hand positioning, music reading, and performance technique.

Lacrosse

I am qualified through experience as a sixth grade lacrosse coach, and was captain of the UCCS Lacrosse team for 2 years. I Have played over 15 years.

Marketing

I am qualified in marketing as a professional digital marketer with over 12 years of experience creating addlogo, marketing tools, and concept development.

Organic Chemistry

I am qualified in Organic Chemistry through coursework in Organic Chemistry and have completed labs for both semesters. My Organic Chemistry II class scored higher on the ACS Final for Organic Chemistry than any class in my university's history.
