I have tutored many students for over 14 years. I have tutored at high school, elementary school and college levels, for both pay and as a volunteer. I love working with high school students, especially in preparing them for AP tests and the ACT or SAT tests.

I have an undergraduate degree in Biology, with a minor in Chemistry and an MBA from Southern Methodist University. My day job is in data science and strategy.

As a side note: Previously, I worked for an accredited 4 year University in admissions, which gave me a unique perspective on what colleges are looking for in a prospective student.

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.

Algebra 2

Algebra was a difficult subject for me (at first) when I was in high school. I discovered quickly, that this is because I am a visual learner and, in my experience, most high school algebra classes involved a lot of listening. X, Y, Z...

Once I learned how to learn it visually, it became so much easier!

Wonder if you learn another way? Ask yourself, Does the teacher mostly teach with their back to you, writing on the board or screen and talking, a lot? Perhaps you don't learn best by hearing either.

Don't be discouraged by algebra, just know that if you are educated in it the way you learn best, then it will be much easier! So many people think math is just, "too hard" and they can't do it. I can show you it isn't and you can!

Biology

I majored in Biology for my undergraduate Degree. In high school, I took AP Biology and scored a 5, the highest score possible. I love helping others understand this fascinating subject!

Biostatistics

With a BS in Biology, minor in Chemistry, Masters Level Statistics courses and over two years working in laboratory research.

I also received a scholarship from the Undergraduate Neuroscience Research Program.

Botany

I have a BS in Biology, minor in Chemistry, and took several botany courses.

Business

I have 10 years business experience, coupled with an Masters in Business Administration from a Top 10 School.

Genetics

I have a BS in Biology, minor in Chemistry. I worked in a genetics lab for a year as an undergraduate research associate. In addition, I took several genetics courses.

Marketing

I have nearly a decade of experience in marketing and marketing analytics. My emphasis on my MBA program was marketing. I currently work as a consultant at a Fortune 500 Marketing Department.

Organic Chemistry

I have a BS in Biology, minor in Chemistry, and took several college level courses in O Chem. I worked in laboratory research for over 2 years as well.

Public Speaking

I have been public speaking for years. I have both undergraduate and graduate level coursework related to public speaking. In addition, I have years of presenting in business, school and non-profit organizations.

Spanish

I learned to speak Spanish in middle and high school. During high school, I took the AP Spanish test and got a 4.

I also volunteered for 3 years teaching English as a Second Language and Citizenship classes to those on the list to take the US Citizenship test.

I have used Spanish professionally and for leisure, while traveling to Spanish speaking destinations.
