I have been tutoring math
and all sciences since 1995. I have been trained in tutoring for all learning styles, study skills
, test-taking skills, time management
, workload organization
, and most importantly [to me] learning to learn on your own. In 2008, I became a CRLA III certified tutor (highest level certification).
I have also been teaching at the collegiate and high school level since 1998. At the collegiate level, I teach all sciences (primarily Biology
) and some introductory level math courses. At the high school level, I teach and train high school students for ACT Science
Reasoning and ACT test-taking tactics.
Most recently, I began instructing and training college juniors and seniors for Medical College Admission Testing (MCAT
). For this position, I teach introductory and advanced levels of Biology, Chemistry
, Organic Chemistry
, Verbal Reasoning, and Writing
I earned a Bachelor of Science Degree (major - Biology) in 1998, a Master of Science Degree (focus - Molecular Biology and Genetics
) in 2000, and an Associate in Applied Science Degree in 2009 (major - Digital Media Communications, focus - print/online publishing and video production
Tutoring was my first job and still my job and even more so, my passion. My drive to continue tutoring is seeing my students succeed test by test (step by step) and thus becoming enthusiastic about learning [even math] and driven to continue education and furthermore, excelling beyond expectations. Learning is fun. And when it is fun, it becomes easy. And when it becomes easy, it is exciting. When it is exciting, students progress to the highest levels possible. This is my goal.
