I started tutoring over 4 years ago and continue to love it for one reason: I love seeing the student I tutor succeed in accomplishing the goals that they set forth for themselves! I graduated magna cum laude from Washington University in St. Louis with an emphasis of studies in the sciences. I graduated with a degree in Biology - Neuroscience. While at Washington University in St. Louis I took multiple courses in each area of science giving me a vast background and ability to tutor in Biology, Physics or Chemistry. Additionally I was a pre-medicine student and took the MCAT exam, scoring in the 95th percentile. I would love to help you out if you want assistance in preparing for the MCAT as well!
I also have hours of experience tutoring working with multiple different students. This helps me really work towards your specific need! While a college student myself I tutored high school students in Physics, Chemistry, Geometry, Pre-Calculus and Biology. I also worked with students in writing college essays and preparing their college application. If you need help in any of these areas I can help you as well!
I am currently working as a Physics teacher at a high school in urban Chicago. This has given me the skills to work with students at all levels. With my students I work hard to push them to their potential, but in a comfortable manner that is built on their own accomplishment and achievement first and foremost. This makes the learning student driven and I find my students themselves pushing themselves to higher limits, not because I require it but because they want it!
I love hearing feedback from the students I work with because I believe the only successful tutoring relationship requires both sides to be transparent about what they need and want from each other. I have a 12 hour cancellation policy but if you are aware of the need to cancel before this I request you let me know. I am flexible with location. I currently prefer to run my tutoring sessions out of a coffee shop in Hyde Park near the University of Chicago or at a coffee shop near the medical district off of Roosevelt Avenue, however I am flexible in finding a location that works for both of us!
I really look forward to working with you soon and helping you achieve your goals!
