I have worked as an intern at a variety of different businesses. I have seen small business start ups and huge corporations alike. I have been a private consultant for a number of private companies and firms and understand the difficulty any entrepreneur or business owner has to face.
I have worked with Colleges and high schools in their career development under their HR departments. I have helped people prepare for jobs, interviews and overall careers. I was the President of the student government when I went to Penn State as well as Captain of every team I've been on. I have a lot of experience leading people and preparing them for any task or job they need to do. I have a lot of experience with team leading, team building and overall team management.
I have been playing cello since I was 13. In high school orchestra I was either 1st or 2nd cello. In college I joined a community orchestra since my school didn't have one. I own my own cello and play it casually. I have tutored students for the cello since high school.
I have tutored students of all ages. This includes students in elementary school. I have tutored students with ADD, dyslexia and language barriers. I am very patient and even when things seemed very difficult with a student I kept a positive light and worked with the students pace to guarantee results.
I have been tutoring the MCAT's for several years now. I went to college for chemical engineering and am going back for chemistry. I have a very strong science background and this has always helped me for the Physical Sciences and biological Sciences sections. I have also taught a lot of students in the Writing Sample and Verbal Reasoning sections exclusively. Most of the test doesn't require a vast amount of knowledge. Instead it requires the correct approach and a certain level of confidence. I always aim to help improve my students problem solving, critical thinking, writing skills and written analysis. I can teach any scientific concepts or principles they need to know that would be on the MCAT.
I took organic chemistry 1 and 2 myself with their respective labs. I have now tutored several students in organic chemistry. I have seen the notes and tests for Organic Chemistry 1 and 2 from Rutgers, Penn State, FDU, WPU, NYU, Ramapo, and several other schools through my tutoring. I understand how difficult the subject can be and have seen it taught in several different ways.
I have tutored and instructed countless students and through my work I have been asked about the best way to study. I know the the best approaches for when I want to learn something. I also know how to find the right approaches for each different person who wants to learn. If the student is a visual learner, auditory learner, hands on learners, or just need to regurgitate information, any student can be taught the optimal way to learn. Whether it requires memorization or understanding there is a method that can work for everyone. This can be done in a group setting or individually with students.
TEAS is an essential test for prospective nursing students. Although most students don't seem to know about it they all have the ability to do extremely well. The test is on basic English, science, math and reading. The material doesn't have to intimidate the student, although the test is still going to seem intimidating. This is because the TEAS is also an aptitude test. It will tell the student whether or not they are heading in the direction of a nurse or if the occupation isn't suited for him or her.
I have tutored students in this test and have been able to put them near a perfect score. I can review the basics of each subject and work any topic to the ground up. I can make practice problems and show any topic to a student through any perspective they need
