Great students know how to learn and they have collateral skills required to keep on track. I believe everyone is capable of greatness when they have great support. My approach is skills-based and honed from years of keeping up in advanced math classes. I will teach you to develop and hone your study and time management skills to create an understanding of advanced topics in math and science and make yourself a better writer. I create an environment of growth and accountability. My goal is tutoring myself out of a job.
I am a biologist, specializing in Environmental Science and Ecology with concentrations in Pollution Management and Botany. My background in Chemistry (through P Chem) and Math (through Differential Equations)is extensive. I am pursing an MS in Biology and GIS certificate at NEIU. Soon, I will complete an Advanced Tutor Certification through the National Tutoring Association. If you hire me, you will work with a professional, drawing on over 12 years of experience in management positions and 15 years of experience as a peer and professional tutor.
I specialize in working with students averse to math and science. My methods are perfect for test preparation as well. I completed an IB diploma in high school so it's fair to say I'm an expert at taking exams. I love to work with creative individuals who genuinely want to make themselves better people and I'm a great role model and mentor for young people. I work well and have a lot of experience with college and high school students. I regret to inform you I have little experience with K-6 and no experience working with special needs students.
My focus in Biology is environmental science and I concentrate my free time reading in botany. I have taken undergraduate botany and will be completing a master gardener certification this spring. Further, I have taken undergraduate and graduate level ecology and evolution classes which touch on the more advanced topics in botany, including phylogeny. My chemistry elective in undergrad, Natural Products Chemistry, concentrated on ethnobotany and drug development.
I completed the National Tutoring Association Tutoring Foundations courses (all 11). Many of these courses deal with study skills, such as time management, effective reading, note taking, stress management, and progress tracking. Through high school and while obtaining my undergraduate degree in Biology, I worked full time. This required a great deal of self control, effective time management, and diversified learning strategies. My background is in Biology, Chemistry and Math. All these disciplines demand excellent study skills for success.

Very good tutor that has gotten almost instant results — Kalliopi was able to figure out what my son's problem was very quickly. My son works very well with her and he has really gotten into his studies more. She has made some very good recommendations for his study habits that are working very well. My son's grades have gone up in just 2 weeks of work. He dug himself in a big whole academically, but with Kalliopi's help, he is digging himself out. I ...
