I have been in your shoes and know how hard it can be to understand some concepts which are brought up in class. Certain subjects are complex to understand and sometimes all you need is someone giving you a different spin on the subject. If you are looking to improve your understanding in Biology, then I can help you!
My name is Janne and I'm currently a Ph.D. student in the Biology Department at Temple University while working as a Graduate Teaching Assistant for the Introductory Biology Lab. I have 3 years of teaching experience while working with students ranging from Elementary school students to College Undergraduate students ranging from different nationalities.
I received my Masters of Science in Biology from the Florida Institute of Technology and worked as a Graduate Teaching Fellow for the National Science Foundation's (NSF) GK-12 program. In that program I was trained different teaching methods, such as inquiry based learning, to make scientific principles easier to understand to students while teaching 10 hrs/ week at different K-12 schools. I grew up speaking three languages (English, German, Finnish) and I'm fluent in all of them (I also tutor German!).
While it is great to know something and memorize it for tests, the goal should be to understand the concept you are studying. I can help you understand different Biological principles and will work hard to help you understand these principles and answer any questions you might have.
As a tutor I will not do your assignments for you; that would defeat the purpose of tutoring you. Rather, my purpose should be to improve your understanding of the subject which will improve the quality of your assignments. My tutoring methods will vary depending on your study preferences. We all have different ways of studying. Initially I would ask you a few questions: How do you study? How much work do you put into studying? Do you study only before tests? etc. From there I would then work with you to improve your study methods, increase your knowledge of the subject, assist you with your assignments (proofreading and editing) and help you prepare for examinations.
If you are interested in my tutoring services or have any questions about my qualifications, please contact me.
