Hello! My name is Cassidy, and I am 2013 graduate of Mount Holyoke College in Western Massachusetts. When in high school, I scored in the 99+ percentile on the SAT and ACT. In college, I maintained a 3.75 average, earning a 4.0 multiple semesters.
I graduated cum laude with a Bachelors in Biology and honors in Reproductive Rights and Criminal Justice. I also spent my spring 2012 semester as a Harvard University student. After living and working in Atlanta for a year, I've recently moved back to the Morningside Heights area of NYC. I currently work full-time as a clinical research assistant for a reproductive immunology practice in the NYC area, but continue to accept tutoring clients. I also maintain an active client base outside of Wyzant. In the fall of 2015, I will begin my first year of medical school.

I have many years of tutoring and teaching experience- mainly in grades 6-8, but ranging from grade 2-12. In the summer of 2012, I taught 7th grade biology with Breakthrough Collaborative, an organization that puts low-income middle and high school students on the path to college. I have also worked as an Introductory Biology teaching assistant at my college and tutored in the biology department. In high school, I created a student-run science and math tutoring network for students who were seeking outside help.

While my primary expertise is in biology, I have experience in K-12 math, K-12 reading/writing, standardized test prep, and study skills development. I have helped dozens of students excel in their classes and succeed on standardized tests, including the SAT, ACT, and SSAT. I work very well one-on-one, but also have experience in small group work.

I also teach swimming lessons and am Lifeguard (including CPR/AED) certified.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have experience in elementary school skills, including early reading (sounding out letters, word groups, etc.), writing (forming letters, cursive, spelling), math (addition, subtraction, multiplication, division), basic science, and organizational skills.

Genetics

I received an A in a course in Genetics and Molecular Biology at Mount Holyoke College. I also tutor this subject at Mount Holyoke College under the Biological Sciences department.

Study Skills

I have worked on study skills as a tutor for 5 years. I have been trained through the Breakthrough Collaborative and various other institutions.

I work very hard to make an individualized study plan for each of my students.

Swimming

I am a Red Cross-certified lifeguard. Additionally, I have 12 years of competitive swimming experience and 8 years of experience teaching swimming. I currently run a program that provides swimming lessons to kids with special needs.
