Hello! My name is Despina and I'm a recent graduate of the University of California-Riverside where I studied Biological Sciences. Now, having completed my degree, I'm looking to help other people expand their knowledge.
I have worked previously as a tutor for elementary level, as well as higher education schools so I have experience in multiple subjects. Those subjects include: science, math, English, and many more!
As a tutor, I prefer to help students learn through a "question-and-answer" based method because that way each lesson is tailored to that student's needs. However, depending on the student and subject, other options are viable.
Most importantly I try to make learning fun! Each session will be a new experience filled with game-like strategies that help the student retain information and that will help them develop study skills for the future.
If you're interested in a tutor that has prior experience in the field and wants to see others succeed, you've found the right one!

I am an excellent candidate for this subject because I have prior training and experience teaching good study skills to students at the university level. Not only did I tutor students 1-on-1 to teach them how to be able to handle all of their subjects efficiently, I also did group presentations on this matter weekly. My most recent job required me to teach about study skills which is why I have the qualifications to continue to do so.

Anatomy

As a recent graduate of the University of California, Riverside, I took vertebrate anatomy for two quarters. In both classes I received excellent grades in both the lecture and laboratory components. Furthermore, as a tutor for the Academic Resource Center on campus I tutored this subject at a university level, so I feel confident in my ability to help others learn about it.

Dentistry,

Dentistry

I am a current dental student who has recently taken the Dental Admissions Test and scored in the 95-97% for all subjects. These included Biology, General and Organic Chemistry, Quantitative Reasoning, Reading Comprehension, and Perceptual Ability. My experience within dentistry is extensive because I have over 400 hours of shadowing both general dentistry and some of the specialties, but also because I have volunteered at several dental clinics both within the U.S. and abroad. I am therefore qualified to prepare other hopefuls for the Dental Admissions Test, as well as to help them prepare for the upcoming application cycle via my own experiences and advice.

Knowledgeable, down-to-earth, and approachable tutor!

When I began the session with Despina, I could not remember anything about pre-calc for the life of me. However, my the end, I felt confident and was able to remember key points, thanks to Despina, I believe that I can pass my test!

Couldn't have made a better choice!

Despina is absolutely amazing! She takes the time to get to know the student on a personal level and incorporates their personal interests into her lessons to keep the student engaged. I found her for my boyfriends daughter and we love her! She really knows how to hold her interest and gets her excited about the things they are doing. Despina has a wonderful personality and is a pleasure to have in our home.
