Hi, my name is Becca B., and I am currently getting my PhD in molecular biology from the University of California-Santa Barbara. I was also lucky enough to do my undergraduate coursework at UCSB, where I graduated with a 3.90 GPA and a degree in Cell and Developmental Biology.

I taught general chemistry for CLAS (Campus Learning Assistance Services) at UCSB as well as tutored privately in subjects ranging across many math, science, and humanities disciplines. I have been tutoring for ten years, and I pride myself on my ability to effectively communicate information to students with all different learning styles.

As I hope to one day pursue a career as an academic professor, I truly value the experience of working with each individual student. I feel that only by being exposed to many different modalities of thought am I able to expand my teaching methodology. In my free time, I am an avid traveler and practicing yogi.

Overall, I strive to instill critical thinking skills above all else. I realize that too often students are trying to learn only to the next test rather than in the full scope of the subject or course. It is my goal to utilize the Socratic method in order to get students to start asking questions and problem solving. In doing this, I hope to help students to build up their performance and confidence in all classes, as well as outside the classroom. Through our sessions, I hope to instill the confidence and skills such that my students don't need me anymore!

Genetics

I received my BS from UCSB in Cellular and Developmental Biology, which included taking two courses in genetics, both eukaryotic as well as prokaryotic. I am now about to pursue a PhD in Genetics, which demonstrates a solid understanding of the subject as well as its research applications.

Awesome!!

Becca is an awesome tutor, she is very knowledgeable and explains things very clearly. She helped me with chemistry (organic chem and biochem) and also helped me with microbiology at times. I went from feeling like I was drowning in a difficult class, to feeling like I was actually understanding the material. She was also very patient and didn't mind if I asked tons of questions. In addition, she is very easy to reach by phone and is flexible with making her schedule work with mine. I would definitely recommend her!
