About Breanna


Bio

I have always had a great appreciation for learning and teaching. My current role as a postdoctoral researcher involves mentoring a lot of new students and introducing them to the concepts and experiments we use in our lab. I have significant experience as a teacher and mentor, but also as a learner, so I am very conscientious of how much a student can handle at one time, and how to take different approaches to tackle a problem. There is nothing I love more than helping someone to understand...

I have always had a great appreciation for learning and teaching. My current role as a postdoctoral researcher involves mentoring a lot of new students and introducing them to the concepts and experiments we use in our lab. I have significant experience as a teacher and mentor, but also as a learner, so I am very conscientious of how much a student can handle at one time, and how to take different approaches to tackle a problem. There is nothing I love more than helping someone to understand a new concept that changes their view of the world around them.

In regards to my experience as a learner and teacher:
I took multiple Honors and Advanced Placement (AP) courses in high school and tested out of my first year of Biology in college. I obtained my B.S. in Biology from Regis University in 2009. During college, I served as a tutor for numerous subjects, including essay-writing, Physics, general Biology, Anatomy, Spanish, and more.

I proceeded directly to graduate school at the University of Denver, and earned my PhD in 2014. During my last 4 years of graduate school, I was employed by the university as a Teaching Assistant (TA). I taught laboratory courses in Genetics, Microbiology, Concepts in Ecology and Evolution, Molecular Biology, Human Physiology, and Biology for Non-Majors. I am very comfortable in a mentoring role and can work with a variety of students of all different levels of understanding.

I look forward to helping you achieve your goals!

I have a PhD in Biology and experience as a TA in Genetics, Microbiology, Concepts in Ecology and Evolution, Molecular Biology, Human Physiology, and Biology for Non-Majors. I also have one-on-one tutoring experience in college and graduate school
and mentoring experience with new students in my current job. In addition, I also have 10 years of classroom experience and stellar grades at each level.

I am mostly available evenings and weekends.

Please contact me if you would like more information or to set up a tutoring session.

GRE,

GRE

I obtained high scores (90th percentile or greater) on both the Quantitative and Verbal sections of the GRE and the highest score attainable in Analytical Writing. I have 4 years of college teaching experience as a laboratory Teaching Assistant, so I am capable of instructing students with varying skill levels. Further, I utilize math and writing skills daily in my job, and have 7 years of experience mentoring graduate students in these skills. I not only possess the ability to obtain high GRE scores, but also the ability to pass those skills on to others.

I worked in the Writing Center at my high school all 4 years. In college I participated in the Regis University Honors Curriculum, which places a strong emphasis in writing. During this time, I tutored fellow students in the program and helped them with their assignments. Completion of the program required submission of a formal written thesis (available online from the Regis library). At the end of college, I obtained the highest score possible in the writing sections for both the GRE and the MCAT. I then taught for 4 years as a Teaching Assistant at the University of Denver. Finally, I perform regular editing work for co-workers, friends and family members to help them improve the quality of their writing. I have extensive experience helping others with their writing skills, and take great joy in helping to transform rough drafts into admirable essays.

Great tutor, worth the investment!

Breanna taught me to present my writing in a more clear and concise way, which made it stronger with very little modification. She was patient and reassuring. I appreciated how she gave me options and let me decide how to apply the edits. I have only worked with her once and I am looking forward to meeting with her several times in the future. I feel more confident in my ability to take my writing to the next level because of Breanna's tutoring, she was very good. I highly recommend her as a graduate level tutor, she has been there and knows how challenging it can be and what is expected at this level of education.

Very helpful tutor for analytical writing and arguments

Breanna right away was able to help me to see some areas where I could improve my reasoning skills and ability to formulate an argument. She is patient and gives thoughtful, concise feedback with concrete suggestions. Definitely recommended if you need help with analytical writing!

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

My son's confidence in Algebra has increased tremendously since working with Breanna. Her knowledge and expertise of this subject have allowed my son to understand complex algebraic expressions & equations that were once a huge challenge to him. Breanna is an AWESOME tutor!
