I am a patient person who is very passionate about learning. I just recently graduated from St. Norbert College with a bachelor's in Science with a biomedical concentration and a minor in Psychology; I received Cum Laude honors while finishing my degree in three and a half years. I have previous experience tutoring at St. Norbert College, and I have extensive experience in the sciences. While tutoring biology, chemistry, psychology, and other courses, I had the exceptional opportunity to do cancer research and present at the AACR conference. I was able to convey my research findings with other science-minded people and learned a great deal about how to best share my learning experiences and results. I truly enjoy working with people and feel as though I could offer a lot to students that were struggling or wanted a firmer grasp on specific concepts in academia.

I like to take a direct approach while tutoring students. What this means is that I like to present the material in a manageable way and bridge the gap between new material and previously learned material; I have found that this makes the learning process a lot more concise and conducive and there is an overall higher level of learning that occurs. Creating real life examples utilizing the concepts taught in classes also gives each lesson a more concrete feel. I would love the opportunity to share my knowledge and skills with anyone that could benefit, and being an easy person to get along with, I think it would be easy to build strong tutor/student relationships that could only result in a stronger learning environment.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Genetics

Genetics was one of my passions while in college. I truly enjoyed the subject matter and hold a very tight understanding of the intricate details of this class. I helped explain key concepts to students struggling and was able to further apply my understanding of genetics while taking cancer courses at SNC.

Organic Chemistry

I took a full year of organic chemistry as a part of my biology degree from St. Norbert College. I excelled at the subject matter and found that I really enjoyed learning about the mechanisms of organic chemistry. I feel confident that I would be able to share my joy of this subject with others and would tutor using models and diagrams like I was taught at SNC.

Study Skills

Study skills are important to excel in school, especially college, so I think my completion of my 4 year degree in 3.5 years points toward my ability to study effectively to succeed in the classes I took. I made study guides to study off of while in school and organized my notes to be most beneficial to me as I studied continuously for my exams. Study skills differ from subject to subject, but there are underlying themes that can be learned to set students up for success, and I would enjoy to share my tips to students as they learn and study.

Tennis

I was on the varsity tennis squad in high school and have since stayed active by playing in college and with friends. This is a fun way to stay active and I have been complimented for having a wicked serve. I would love to help others culture a love for the sport.

It is easy to put the books in the corner and forget about them once the semester is over, but why waste an entire semester of knowledge by not putting a little time in here and there?   It is definitely important to take breaks and give your mind a rest, but you can still be reinforcing the information you have already learned just by simply going over certain topics for 15 to 20... read more
