I have a BS in Biology and BA in Classics(Latin/Greek)from UT Austin. I also have three years of experience at UTSW medical school.
I provide in home tutoring and tailor the sessions to your child's needs. My best experiences have been tutoring 1st and 2nd year Latin. I also provide reading and general homework help to elementary and intermediate school students. I am confident about my ability to tutor SAT, MCAT, Chemistry and Biology.
I was a National Merit Scholar based on my PSAT score, scored Verbal 740 Math 700 on my SAT the one and only time I took it, and scored 780 on my SAT II Writing. I have a Bachelor of Arts in Classics which means that I have excellent language skills and interpretive skills. I am able to synthesize information while looking at details and the big picture. I refined my English grammar skills in Latin and Greek classes. I competed locally and nationally in various Latin competitions including grammar, reading comprehension, and vocabulary. I tutored Latin and headed a reading comprehension study group during high school.
I have extensive experience taking standardized tests and even spent some time grading TAKS as well as the Arkansas standardized test. However, my expectations for what was acceptable grammatically in a written essay were higher than those of the other scorers. I recently took an SAT preparation course and mastered the material.
I have a Bachelor of Science in Biology and attend medical school at UTSW for 3 years. I studied with groups during my first two years of medical school and after mastering a specific topic we would teach it back to each other. I am good at simplifying concepts and explaining them to others who may not have as strong a science background. During my first year of medical school I was on the student test committee, which met with professors to discuss ambiguous test questions.
I look forward to working with your child. Thank you for your consideration!
