I am a University of Washington alumni with a degree in General Biology. My coursework at the university has included Immunology, Introductory Biology, Calculus, Physics, Organic Chemistry, Foundations of Physiology, etc. As you can see, I am well-rounded in the area of biology, and can offer some knowledge in the chemistry and mathematics areas, as well. I am happy to disclose my mastery of any particular subject if asked. I recommend these tutoring sessions to be at least an hour long, but no longer than two hours for any one subject. This recommendation stems from the fact that all minds need time to practice and process the information they have just received -- upcoming exams are an exception, of course. I prefer to go into sessions with some prep work, so a schedule of the students material would be necessary to create a lesson plan, which would look something like: review what you know by memory --> compare to everything learned --> begin homework/studying --> review what you know by memory --> set goals for next session.
As my profile says, I am also available for martial arts. I have boxed four years at the University of Washington, wrestled in high school, practice Brazilian jiu jitsu for two years, and played basketball for all my life. These sessions would last one-two hours, with an hour of drilling and learning new moves, an optional half hour of warm up/conditioning, and an optional half hour of open mat (which can be sparring, conditioning, or cool down). For martial arts, keep in mind my number one priority is SAFETY. Jiu jitsu practitioners will be encourage to "tap" early and often; boxers will be required to wear sparring gloves, headgear, and a cup; etc.
For both academia and sports, I have experience in participating and teaching. I have taught boxing for the past year, have taught some jiu jitsu classes, many wrestling sessions, as well as lead some fitness programs designed to get people in shape for the Army Physical Fitness Test in one-two months. For academia, I have taught many seminars on beekeeping (I am the head beekeeper on UW campus, which I can also tutor), given many tours of the UW Farm/botany greenhouse, have given multiple public presentations on various subjects, and I've tutored!
This is how I operate and who I am in a nutshell, but please feel free to ask whatever questions you may have.
