I am a recent college graduate (biology major) who has always had a talent for math and science, as well as a reputation for being able to explain concepts clearly to students. I have plenty of tutoring experience and have done well for everyone I have tutored thus far. Here are some of my achievements in the math and science department: I have scored in the top 10% in Chemistry I in the New Jersey Science League (NJSL) and first place in the state in Biology II; was a semi-finalist in the United States of America Biology Olympiad (USABO) and have qualified for the United States of America Mathematical Olypiad (USAMO). I have also spent some summers working at a math camp with 5th-8th graders at the Bergen County Academies, where I went to high school.

ACT Math

Mathematics has always been my passion. I have competed successfully in numerous math competitions in high school and have taken many advanced mathematics courses in high school and college. Moreover, I have had plenty of success in practicing and teaching others efficient test-taking skills.

ACT Science

Science has always been my passion. I have competed successfully in numerous competitions, have taken many advanced science courses in high school, and majored in biology in college. The scientific way of thinking is something that is second nature to me, as well as explaining it clearly to others. Moreover, I have had plenty of success in practicing and teaching others efficient test-taking skills.

Algebra 1

Mathematics has always been my passion. I have competed successfully in numerous math competitions in high school and have taken many advanced mathematics courses in high school and college. Moreover, I have had plenty of success in tutoring math students across a wide range of levels.

Algebra 2

Mathematics has always been my passion. I have competed successfully in numerous math competitions in high school and have taken many advanced mathematics courses in high school and college. Moreover, I have had plenty of success in tutoring math students across a wide range of levels.

Biochemistry

I majored in biology in college and took a wide range of advanced biology courses, including biochemistry. Biology is my area of expertise, my passion, and my profession. Moreover, I have been successful in helping people see the big picture as well as to understand the details, both of which are important in this subject.

Biology

Biology is my field of expertise and my major in college. I have taken many advanced biology courses in high school and college and have competed successfully in competitions. Moreover, I have experience tutoring other students in this area, helping them understand both concepts and details.

Calculus

I have taken many advanced calculus courses in high school and college, including Calculus BC+, multi-variable calculus, Calculus II, Calculus III, and differential equations. I have a passion and talent for mathematics in general and a great deal of successful experience in explaining it to others. Moreover, I have competed with distinction in numerous math competitions.

Chemistry

I have always had a passion and talent for the natural sciences. I have taken high school chemistry, including AP chemistry, as well as organic chemistry in college. Moreover, I have successful tutored several students in high school chemistry and have competed with distinction in chemistry in the New Jersey Science League.

Differential Equations

I have taken differential equations as an undergraduate and received an A in the course. My teaching methods include presenting the concepts as clearly as possible and reinforcing with examples. The key to success in differential equations is knowing when to use which method and how to apply it, which is what I would emphasize.

Elementary Math

Mathematics is my passion and one of my areas of expertise. I have competed successfully in numerous math competitions and have even helped write one. Moreover, I have worked with younger students at a math camp teaching non-standard problem solving.

Elementary Science

Science is my passion, talent, and profession. I majored in biology in college and have always been drawn to the natural sciences. Moreover, I have competed successfully in numerous competitions and have had considerable experience working with students in this area.

GED

Math and science are my areas of expertise and are major components of the GED. I have taken many advanced math and science courses in high school and college and have competed successfully in numerous competitions. Moreover, I have plenty of experience tutoring students in math and science, as well as successfully practicing and helping others develop efficient test-taking strategies.

Genetics

I took genetics courses in high school and college and have helped out some of my peers in college who were having trouble with the course. Genetics is partly mathematical, which is one of my areas of expertise, so I can explain these parts clearly as they often give trouble to students. Finally, I majored in biology in college and the overlap from the many courses I took would be helpful here as well.

Geometry

I have always had a talent and passion for mathematics, and was especially serious about geometry in high school in preparation for various math competitions. My mentor at the time, a problem author for the American Invitational Mathematical Examination (AIME), placed a strong emphasis on geometry. Moreover, I have plenty of experience tutoring mathematics and explaining difficult concepts clearly to students.

Grammar

I am very proficient with English grammar and have tutored several students in this subject. Moreover, I have scored 800 on the SAT writing section, which includes grammar. My teaching style is to focus on understanding general rules, which are then reinforced by examples.

Linear Algebra

I am a recent college graduate (biology major) who has always had a talent for math and science. I took linear algebra in high school as part of a course called "Topics in Advanced Mathematics." Conceptually, this subject is rather simple, but students often have trouble with it because it requires that one think very clearly. This is the job of the tutor, namely to teach the student how to deconstruct the concepts and think clearly and systematically, which I can do quite well.

Organic Chemistry

I have taken organic chemistry I and II as an undergraduate and have received an A in both courses. I also have experience tutoring in this subject. My teaching method consists of training students to think about molecules and reactions as clearly as possible. Theory is reinforced with examples, but great emphasis is placed on achieving a deep understanding of the chemistry rather than on memorizing reactions.

Physical Science

Science is my area of expertise, my passion, and my field professionally. I majored in biology in college and have taken plenty of advanced science courses in high school and college. Moreover, I have plenty of successful experience in helping students understand concepts in science.

Physics

I have always had a talent and passion for math and science. I have taken high school physics as well as calculus-based general physics in college. Moreover, I have plenty of experience tutoring students to help them understand concepts and learn to think clearly, which is the key to success in this subject.

Prealgebra

Mathematics is my passion and one of my areas of expertise. I have competed successfully in numerous math competitions and have even helped write one. Moreover, I have worked with younger students at a math camp teaching non-standard problem solving.

Precalculus

Mathematics is my passion and one of my areas of expertise. I have competed successfully in numerous math competitions and have even helped write one. Moreover, I have worked with younger students at a math camp teaching non-standard problem solving.

Probability

Mathematics is my passion and one of my areas of expertise. I have competed successfully in numerous math competitions and have even helped write one. Moreover, I have taken many advanced math courses in high school and college.
