I am a 2012 graduate of University of Northwestern - St. Paul with a major in Biology. I have over five years' experience tutoring in various subject areas, including core classes (math, English, and science). I am proficient in math through algebra II. I can also tutor K-12 science classes, as well as most college biology courses. I can teach most areas in English-spelling, grammar, reading, and writing. I am also able to tutor for ACT prep.
I've had experience teaching and tutoring students in K-12, as well as undergraduate biology students. I have tutored students who are educationally behind, in addition to students who want to get ahead or be more challenged in their education. Topics that I have helped past students with include: elementary and middle school math topics, physics, algebra I and II, geometry, ACT prep, and paper writing. One of the previous students that I tutored needed help to improve his ACT score. In the time that I worked with him, he made immense progress, improving his scores from about 16 to around 23. I am helping my current student with both English and Geometry. With my assistance he has been able to gain a better understanding in both courses, in addition to getting caught up on missing work and improving his grades.
Overall, I believe that patience and a supportive learning environment provide students with the tools that they need to succeed.
