University of Texas, Dallas (Neuroscience)
I was born and raised in Dallas, Texas and graduated from The Hockaday School. I am in the last semester of a degree in neuroscience at UT Dallas and I work in a neuroscience lab that focuses on learning and memory. I plan to apply to medical school shortly thereafter and specialize in pediatric and adolescent psychiatry. I am very familiar with the pressures and demands of preparing for and getting into college.
My experience with tutoring ranges from grade school to college. My experience with high school comes from me participating as a tutor in the AVID program. The AVID program is a college preparatory program made for students who have the potential to go to college, but perhaps need extra support to get there. I have received training from The Shelton School specifically for tutoring and working with students with ADD/ADHD and learning differences. Not only that, but I have my own personal experience with ADHD and dyslexia to draw from. I believe this enables me to be more patient and to find more ways to approach a subject with a student as well as easing some of the anxiety that may be adding to their difficulties with the subject. My most recent experience with tutoring/teaching (outside of WyzAnt) involved being a TA for Neuropharmacology (a senior level neuroscience course at UT Dallas). I was responsible for running weekly review sessions and creating review materials for students as well as being available for their questions and providing one on one time.
Overall, I strive to not only help my students understand the material, but to conquer the anxiety and the stress the material may be causing them. I am here to be a support and their teacher.

My son enjoys tutoring with Reagan. She is very knowledgeable in the subjects that she is tutoring him in, which include Math, Anatomy, and Pharmacy Tech. She is pleasant and very patient. She always comes in with an upbeat attitude and really gets my son motivated. I like how she reviews his work ahead of our scheduled tutor times so that she ensures that she is teaching him exactly what he needs to learn. My son is in the Homebound Program due to a traumatic brain injury and has a lot of work but somehow Reagan comes in and helps him get all of his work done. She's awesome!
Reagan has been great. We have had a minor set back theses past weeks with unforeseen family issues. Through it all, Reagan has been wonderful, and so patient with my daughter and my family. I feel she is more like a family member than a tutor. It's time to get back on track and set goals for summer to get my daughter ready for next school, with Reagan's help!
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.
