About Wade

I'm new to tutoring, but have plenty of experience preparing me to work as a tutor. The last 5 years I've worked as a behavioral therapist with kids diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder. My students were anywhere between 2-22 years old. Working as a behavioral therapist taught me patience, organization, and resourcefulness. I learned to be patient with the pace at which students learned and the more time we spent together the better at pushing them without going too fast. I had to be organized in the way I structured my time with each student. I would work in natural breaks and always make sure we were working towards something. Most of all I had to be resourceful because kids are unpredictable. I had to use what was available to reinforce and reward all the good stuff.

I completed a Bachelor's of Arts at UC Berkeley in 2011 in Anthropology. Most of my classes allowed me to study Medical Anthropology and social justice movements in history. Luckily I loved what I studied because up until that point it was the hardest thing I'd ever done. Throughout the course of a semester each class would have me read 15-20 research papers and write one of my own, and writing became very important to me. As I have shifted my focus from the social sciences to the biological and Earth Sciences I've continued to write. I'm currently working through Biology, Chemistry, Physics, and Calculus in preparation to do a Doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine, and because I love what I'm learning. I'm becoming a pretty well rounded student now, and I think I'd be a fun tutor.

I'm hoping to find someone looking for a long term commitment. I'm not afraid of any challenge and would relish the opportunity to help a struggling student succeed. Just like my years as a behavioral therapist, I will find a way to work at the student's pace and be patient. Hope to hear from you soon.

I've completed Precalculus Algebra, Precalculus Trigonometry, and a class that combined the two into one semester.

My degree in Anthropology was very well rounded. I completed Anatomy last year and put a lot of energy into it. My study of anatomy has carried on since then.

I'm a polished writer. I understand academic writing and can teach it. I've been helping my friends with their papers for years.

I'd love the opportunity to work with your child, and I guess I'll work with adults too.
