I graduated Summa Cum Laude from High Point University (HPU) with a 3.986 GPA, majoring in Biology and minoring in Spanish. My biology course topics included general biology, botany, zoology, parasitology, physiology, and evolutionary biology. My Spanish courses spanned such topics as pronunciation, grammar, Hispanic culture, Caribbean literature, and conversations for professions. In addition to my major and minor courses, I took many physics, chemistry, and math classes. Specifically, I took calculus-based physics, general and organic chemistry, calculus 1, 2, and 3, linear algebra, and differential equations.
In addition to my academics, I played on the Women's Soccer Team at HPU all 4 years. I have been playing soccer for 16 years, but in my 4 years at HPU I played defense, midfield, and forward. I won various HPU and Big South Conference awards for my performance on the field, and was named a team captain.
I have a love of learning, I quickly grasp new concepts, and I try to apply what I have learned to everyday life. My tutoring is driven by my desire for those I tutor to understand and appreciate learning material like I do (if not more than I do)! Everyone has different learning styles and better understands topics through various means. I would like to help students understand subjects THEIR way, so that the material truly sticks and is not just temporarily memorized. All of my tutoring experience has come through helping friends, teammates, and classmates with their schoolwork without getting paid. Although now I will be getting paid, my methods will not change.
