Rated as a top 10% tutor on Wyzant in 2020!

I am a former high school biology teacher with four years of classroom experience. I have tutored privately for nine years in basic life science, middle school math, AP and IB biology. I am currently in my second year of residency after earning my M.D. from the University of Tennessee Health Science Center.

My experience as a teacher allows me to bring material to the table beyond what your current teacher or professor is providing you. My teaching style is inquiry and problem based, and I am good at helping you see how the small parts of the picture become one. Moreover, if you are struggling with scientific writing or Excel, this is an area that I extensively taught to my former students.

I am a certified teacher in the state of Tennessee, and I have four years of experience developing curriculum and leading a classroom. Though I am very knowledgeable about my subject, the fact that I know how to deliver content to you and break it down will be far more pivotal to your success.

Please let me know if you would like my help with your learning needs!

I scored a 187 on the elementary Praxis exam in 2013 when I was becoming a certified teacher in the state of Tennessee. Though I have not taught in a contained elementary classroom (I taught HS Biology), I am familiar with the subjects and can help guide children to their learning goals.

I earned my B.S. in Biology-Biotechnology with a concentration in the pre-medical sciences. I earned my M.D. from the University of Tennessee Health Science Center and I am currently in my residency. I was also a high school biology teacher for four years before medical school, so I have quite a bit of experience delivering biology content to high school aged children. With my background in teaching, I have material I can bring to your lessons beyond what your teacher is providing!

Great Biology Tutor

Chelsea helped my 9th grader understand the content and clear up some misconceptions. She has her own material and has a format that works for my student. She starts with a quick baseline, overviews the topic, validates understanding before digging in to the details and will finish with testing which she reviews the questions and answers for anything that was incorrect to close gaps. Her sessions are very interactive and not just lecturing. So happy we were able to schedule her time.

Amazing tutor! Very knowledgeable and detail oriented.

My daughter enjoyed learning from Chelsea, very glad that we found her. She explained biology concepts very clearly which helped my daughter understand better, and gave many practice questions. My daughter got a good hold on the subject and felt more confident because of Chelsea 's tutoring. Highly recommend !!

Excellent

Chelsea is excellent! She has great knowledge and experience in AP Biology. She presented the information we had in a special way that was very easy to understand. My kid liked her methods and approach, and was excited about the opportunity to work with her.
