My name is Zoe, and I am a 22 year old graduate student at the University of Miami, pursuing a Master's degree in Public Health. I recently graduated from Florida State University (go Noles!) with a BS in Biology and I hope to attend medical school one day. I was born and raised in Miami Beach and grew up with my loving parents and two younger sisters (ages 18 and 20 now). I really enjoy tutoring kids and seeing them achieve their goals- whether that goal is getting a 4.0 GPA, an A on a test, or simply learning something new.
While I was an undergraduate student at Florida State University (graduated in May 2013), for 2 years I tutored an 11-year old boy with autism. I worked with him in basic math, English, writing skills, and any other material he needed help with. I also tutored and helped the other children in his class (a mix of 8-12 year olds) with any of the classwork they were working on at the time. I have also been babysitting for many years (middle and elementary school ages) and always help the kids with their homework as well as with their studying and organizational skills.
My tutoring approach is to be friendly with the student but at the same time professional, respectful, and encouraging of the task at hand. I believe learning is most successful when the child is interested in the subject being taught, so I try to bring an approach that teaches the subject in an interactive, exciting manner (whether that is through relatable examples or demonstrations), rather than reading only from a textbook. I love school and really enjoy learning new things and truly believe my energy in that sense greatly promotes the learning experience of the student.
For tutoring sessions, I am flexible when it comes to the location. I prefer to meet either at the students home or at a local Starbucks, however, if the student prefers a library or another quiet location, that's definitely possible as well.
I do ask that if you have to cancel a session to please contact me at least 12 hours in advance.
I look forward to working with you and helping you achieve all of your academic goals! : )
