Hi! I graduated from Tufts University with an undergraduate degree in Biopsychology and from Stony Brook University with a Master's degree in Physiology and Biophysics. I have extensive experience in tutoring high school math (algebra, trigonometry, pre-calculus, calculus) and science (biology, chemistry, physics) as well as undergraduate pre-medical courses such as biology, chemistry, physics, biochemistry, and physiology. I love tutoring in a 1-on-1 setting where I can tailor my teaching to each individual student. I am also an expert in time management and study skills, which are an essential part of scholastic success. I am patient, enthusiastic about learning, and will work very hard with you to achieve your academic goals.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Biology

I have three years' experience tutoring high school students in biology. I have extensive coursework and research experience in Biology and am passionate about the field.

Chemistry

I emphasize the importance of connecting material to the bigger picture to enhance understanding, and ensuring the student is proficient in the fundamental math skills required to excel in Chemistry.

Physiology

I have extensive coursework and research experience in the area of Physiology and completed my Master's degree in Physiology in May 2013. I was also the TA for a graduate Physiology course and tutored groups of healthcare and graduate students biweekly. I am very passionate about this subject and utilize my own charts and diagrams to facilitate understanding of the material.

Psychology

I obtained my Bachelor's degree in Biopsychology and have extensive coursework and research experience in this subject. I emphasize the importance of study skills to retain course material. I also utilize my own experiences to challenge students to think like psychologists and bring those skills to tackle future endeavors.

Great tutoring experience! — So far, our experience with WyzAnt and our tutor has been impressive.
