University of the Pacific (Sociology, Biology)
I am currently a junior pursuing a double major in sociology and biology at the University of the Pacific. I have tutored both peers and younger kids for the past 3 years in subjects such as Biology, Chemistry, Anatomy, Sociology, and Psychology, which has given me a lot of experience in simplifying complex ideas/subject matter.

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.
I am a qualified sociology tutor because I have done extensive research on sociological topics such as gender, sexuality, race, class, the united states judicial and educational system, healthcare system, etc. I have written many analytical and persuasive essays given such topics and have received excellent feedback from various professors. Pursuing a sociology major has prompted me into becoming an excellent writer and critical thinker.
Throughout my undergraduate career, I have had to trial and error various ways of studying. I have learned that it is crucial to develop a specialized and unique study method because everyone learns differently. For example, some people are visual learners, while others are auditory learners.
