I pride myself in my ability to adapt to students' needs. I learn about each student as an individual, analyze their strengths/weaknesses, and tailor my approach to meet these needs. I am very passionate about coaching/tutoring. I bring energy and years of tutoring experience to the table.

Although I have recently been accepted into Medical school, I haven't always been a strong academic--In fact, I had a really hard time in school in my early years. I had to learn about my mind and how it functions to optimize my studying effectiveness. This process helped me better understand how complex learning is. Flash forward 10 years, I am able to recognize and relate to academic struggles encountered by my students. In my sessions, I not only trying to teach concepts to students, but I also try to help students learn about how they learn.

If you have any questions please don't hesitate to shoot me an email.

I am a current medical student at University of New England College of Osteopathic Medicine and have a BA in Biology from University of Maine at Augusta. I graduate Magna Cum Laude. My Science GPA was 3.98/4.0.

ADD/ADHD

The mind of an individual with ADD/ADHD is very different from the mind of someone who doesn't have the condition. I very much understand these differences, and have the ability to adapt the tutoring strategies necessary, to hold the attention of the student.

In the past while tutoring students with ADHD/ADD, I have utilized many 3D models, pictures, and diagrams to help stimulate the students in a tactile and visual way.

I also like to have the student standing up, performing physical activities while the tutor session occurs. This aids in the students ability to focus substantially.

Genetics

Genetics is becoming increasingly important in medical research and overall science understanding. To prepare students for this transition, undergrad students majoring in the sciences are now tailored toward an understanding of life at the molecular level, i.e. genetics and molecular cell biology.

Understanding genetics can be difficult, and may appear abstract at times. It is very helpful to have visual instruction of this material to complement reading.

I have extensive experience in molecular level science. I have taken Microbiology, Genetics, biochemistry, and molecular biology; I have excelled in them all. I have recently joined up with two faculty members at my school, to conduct genetic research on turkeys throughout Maine. Collectively, my background and my recent exposure to the material makes me a highly qualified tutor for genetics, molecular biology, or biochemistry.

Lacrosse

I played Varsity Lax (lacrosse) my Sophomore, Junior and Senior years of high school. I have taught my younger cousins, and siblings about the game, and would love to share my knowledge with other kiddos.

I played defense and long stick-middy; therefore I could provide instruction of techniques and strategies used by those positions. I could also play defense against midfielders/attack-man and provide great insight as to how they can "beat" the defense, and obtain position adequate in becoming a threat to the goaltender.

Microbiology

Many schools require satisfactory grades in microbiology for students to enter nursing programs. Often times, if the student had struggled in biology, or A and P, microbiology (the integration of general biological principals with clinical application) can be quite difficult.

I have extensive experience in molecular level science. I have taken Microbiology, Genetics, biochemistry, and molecular biology; excelling in them all. I have recently joined up with two faculty members at my school, to conduct genetic research on turkeys throughout Maine. Collectively, my background and my recent exposure to the material makes me a highly qualified tutor for genetics, molecular biology, or biochemistry.

Study Skills

I have extensive experience in study skill coaching. I have worked with students with a diverse array of learning disabilities, cognitive levels of functioning, and ages.

Initially, I aim to suggest strategies that may work for a particular students learning style. After the student experiments with these strategies, we talk about the effectiveness, re-evaluate the strength/weaknesses of the student, and I proceed by suggesting other strategies for the student to experiment with. I provide a journal for the student to record the effectiveness of certain strategies, to help them keep track of what works and what doesn't work.

As the tutor/student relationship develops, students will naturally develop more confidence. As this confidence increase, the student is advised to come up with strategies independently, then to share their effectiveness with me afterwards. We will then together talk about the process, and possibly changes that may help the student in the future.

I feel that study skill coaching is like guided introspection, when the the tutor supports the students self-discovery process.
