My name is Brianna and I am a Ph.D student in biomechanics at Harvard University. I recently received a National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship supporting my proposed graduate research, and last year I was named a Goldwater Scholar for my scientific research on equine functional morphology. I have tutored formally and informally in the sciences, and my background in writing scientific papers as well as creative writing means I can help you with writing too.
I received a perfect score on the GRE Verbal Reasoning (critical reading) section and a 5.5 of 6 in the Analytical Writing (essay) section. If you need help with studying methods or test-taking skills for virtually any subject, but especially science or the GRE, I would be happy to share the strategies I have developed over the years to help me ace virtually every test I take.
I am a very friendly and enthusiastic teacher interested in finding out exactly which areas are causing trouble, what study methods appear to be working, and developing an individualized strategy to solve your problems. I will work with what you want out of the tutoring, whether it is a better basic knowledge of material or higher test scores. If I need to teach something six different ways, I will, and I love helping people reach their goals--whether it's a long-term deep understanding or just an "A" in the class. I will tutor high school through postgraduate work and adjust teaching style as necessary.
Please get in touch and let me know what areas you'd like to improve. I would love to help out!
