Hi all and those interested in taking the initiative to achieve in their education!

It is great that you have taken the step of getting a tutor. I find education so important, which is why I am a tutor. I want to help people do better in school, on exams, and simply learn to enjoy learning. I have taken numerous biology (intro to upper level), math (including graduate level bio-statistics), and science classes.

I have a lot of experience teaching all ages from kindergarten up to college-level, and I most currently tutor biology, chemistry, anatomy and physiology, and math - algebra and geometry. This includes SHSAT, PSAT, and SAT Math! I graduated from college with a bachelor's degree in Biological Sciences. Moreover, I relate to many younger students. It is easy for me to get along with people and help them with any problems they have, in education and even personally if necessary. A little about me, I grew up in New York with great family and friends. I am responsible, hardworking, caring, and a great listener. I am confident that you will improve in your learning with me as your tutor, but only if you are willing to put your effort in too!

*I am also certified in CPR for children and adults, AED, and First Aid!*.
