My name is Angelina, and I am a recent graduate from the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs. At the conclusion of my adventures in biology, chemistry and psychology, I earned a BS in Biology with an emphasis in Human Bio; as of last year, I am also a certified EMT. My goal is eventually to become a doctor, and right now I am undergoing the process of applying to medical school. For the last several months I have been doing some informal tutoring. I know from my own experience in school that having a tutor, even just for support and reassurance, can be absolutely invaluable. Unfortunately, I did not have a tutor while I was in school, but with the help and encouragement of amazing teachers, friends, family and classmates, I managed to get my degree and graduate with honors. Even still, I know that having a tutor would have been hugely beneficial, and certainly saved me a lot of time and tears. As such, I would like to be able to reach-out and give someone else the help that I wish I had.

For many students, if a subject is confusing and frustrating, it can be difficult to stay motivated; unfortunately, this often means that many will lose interest and fall behind. However, if students are able to master a particularly difficult subject, it becomes a source of pride and accomplishment. Some students may come to find that they actually enjoy a formerly intimidating subject, and may even be inspired to pursue a career in that field (as was the case with me). In terms of my tutoring methods, I believe that tutors should be flexible and able to adapt their styles to a particular student's needs. Not everyone learns in the same way, which is what often causes students difficulty in a classroom setting. Therefore, I try to discover how someone best understands information, and then adapt my approach accordingly. That could mean using real-world/practical examples, improving shaky fundamentals, and/or providing different ways in which to analyze a particular problem or concept. The baseline goal is to get the student to understand the material well enough that he or she could explain it to someone who knows nothing about the subject. Beyond that, other goals may include renewed student interest in a particular subject (or possibly school in general), as well as giving students back the confidence they may have lost from prior struggles.

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.

Biology

I received a Bachelors of Science in Biology at UCCS, and as such, completed the following: one year of General Biology and affiliated labs (course grade A- & A), Cellular Biology (course grade A), Genetics (A), several courses in Human Physiology including labs (A in all courses), and other additional biology electives (A in all courses). I also completed the associated, required chemistry courses (General, Organic, Biochemistry, etc.).

Chemistry

I received a Bachelors of Science in Biology from UCCS. As part of the degree requirements, I completed the following: one year of General Chemistry with affiliated labs (course grades A- & A), one year of Organic Chemistry lectures (A in each), one year of Organic Chemistry lab & lab lectures (A- & A), and one semester of Biochemistry (A). I also took one year of Physics (with labs), which overlaps much of the material in General Chemistry.
