Welcome and thank you for reading my profile. I currently work full time and I am also taking two classes towards my Master's degree in Education. I work at Rush University in Chicago, doing cancer research and have been doing that for about two years. I received my BS in Biology from Valparaiso University in 2010 and have a minor in Chemistry as well. While I was pursuing my degree at Valparaiso, I volunteered at the Boy's and Girl's club in town for two years. I really enjoyed my time as a tutor there.

Being able to help in multiple areas is probably my main asset. I love biology and can help your child with any problems that they are having in this area. Having to explain complex processes at work has enabled me to make many biology topics understandable to all levels of knowledge. I am also comfortable helping your student with most chemistry topics. Math is another area where I can help. I can help with most math classes up until calculus and can help with some topics in calculus. Having been successful on my ACT, I would also feel comfortable helping with test preparation.

If you have any questions as to whether or not I can help your child, please feel free to email me. I look forward to helping your child achieve a higher understanding of these various topics.

If 35% of 465 students chose peanuts, that means we know that 65% of the students chose other nuts. 35%+65%=100%, which is what we want in this case.   To find 65% of 465, you change 65% into its decimal form, which is .65. You then multiply .65 times 465 and it comes out to be...

Outstanding ACT Tutor! — If you are looking for a tutor to help your student learn proven test strategies in preparation of the ACT, I strongly recommend Will.
