If you select this option, WyzAnt will ask interested tutors to contact you by email if they are able to help. A maximum of five different tutors will email you and none of your personal information, including your email address, will be released.

With over four years of tutoring experience in English, mathematics, the biological sciences, and standardized testing preparation, I welcome students of all ages to harness my services. An undergraduate student in Cell Biology and Neuroscience at Rutgers University and a research assistant in Behavioral Neuroscience, I have a well-developed and comprehensive understanding of the biological sciences, mathematics, writing, grammar, and syntax.

Learning takes place every day, and it is not by any means limited to the classroom setting. I strive to assess an individual's current level of comprehension in a subject area, adapt to that student's skill or age level, and provide a service that will allow that student to comprehend material rather than to simply memorize it. This process occurs by building lasting relationships with both students as well as their families that will allow them to develop into thinkers. It is my humble opinion that the first step in learning is learning how to think; furthermore, it is my objective to turn students of all ages into individuals that are capable of assessing their coursework (and ideas in nature) and thinking critically about it.

Additionally, I have a number of references that can be made available upon request. I welcome all students to challenge themselves to develop into thinkers, and I assure 100% satisfaction throughout this process.

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.

Microsoft Excel

I have the following experience with Microsoft Excel:

As a data Entry Clerk in the Graduate School of Applied and Professional Psychology at Rutgers University, I input questionnaire data using Microsoft Excel.

As a Research Assistant in the Department of Cell Biology and Neuroscience at Rutgers University, I use Microsoft Excel to organize and prepare data for analysis using Statistical Package for the Social Sciences (SPSS).

Today, I confirmed my first client through WyzAnt. We will be working on 10th grade chemistry and algebra 2. While I have tutoring experience in academic settings, I have never taken the step to tutor independently. WyzAnt has provided an avenue through which I can independently schedule tutoring hours, create lesson plans, and maintain a network of potential students. Thank you, WyzAnt!&n... read more
