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.
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.
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.
