My interest in teaching comes from a desire to help others achieve their full potential and to share knowledge about my passion: exercise science
. Recently, I graduated from Willamette University with a 3.5 GPA in Exercise Science. I know from my experiences there that it takes a lot more than listening and taking notes to become a great student. It takes drive, passion, and dedication. It also takes some outside help: from classmates, professors, and tutors.
I specialize in tutoring anatomy
, scientific writing
, and fitness
. My philosophy
is to challenge students, but not stress them. I want every tutoring experience to be a growing process and I strive to have my students leave feeling accomplished, not overwhelmed. I take a student-centered approach that builds progressively upon the student's base of knowledge. I bring supplemental materials to help add to the resources provided by the student's school. I also understand that not every student learns the same way. Therefore I try to incorporate multiple learning approaches including visual, auditory, and kinesthetic.
My teaching experience includes tutoring in college and high school. I also taught anatomy & physiology at middle school science camps while in college, and helped a number of friends and classmates learn health concepts and exercise techniques. Currently, I teach swim
lessons on a regular basis and am a Certified Personal Trainer.
While I have a 24-hour cancellation policy, I offer flexible makeup classes. I am willing to travel for tutoring or meet at my house. For new students I offer a free 10-minute consultation. I live extremely close to Albany Medical College, Albany College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences, and College of Saint Rose. I live about a 10-minute drive from the main SUNY Albany campus.
I look forward to helping you succeed in an exercise science, anatomy, or physiology course, teach you the basics of personal health and fitness, or help you revise your lab report or essay
