About Danielle

Hello! I love helping people find their passions and accomplish their goals. I am currently an undergraduate student hoping to attend medical school once I graduate, and I absolutely love studying and teaching biology and chemistry. I currently hold a 4.0 undergraduate GPA at the University of Colorado Colorado Springs. The sciences can be challenging, but I know that with hard work and determination, achieving good grades in these classes is not impossible.

I have experience tutoring in many areas, and I love making scientific concepts that previously seemed overwhelming as simple as possible. One of my goals for the student is not simply to help the student pass an upcoming exam or a class, but to actually grasp and remember these ideas at the fundamental level. I am here for the you, the student, and my desire for you is to feel successful after each session. My style is to tailor my tutoring sessions to each individual student's pace and desires, whether that includes being challenged or just understanding concepts.

My favorite subjects to tutor in are biology and chemistry, but I also teach physical science. I tutor high and middle school chemistry, biology, English, math, and physical science, along with college-level General Biology I and II and General Chemistry I and II.

I am additionally a USTA certified Coach Youth Tennis instructor, and I have been coaching private lessons for adults, juniors, and young children for nearly 1.5 years. I have experience coaching group lessons for children ages 5-17. Although I only recently joined WyzAnt, I have about 1.5 years of paid tutoring experience and several current students outside of WyzAnt.

When I am available depends on my class schedule, but I try as much as possible to fit your schedule.
I look forward to hearing from you and helping you achieve your academic goals!

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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.

Biology

I currently hold a 4.0 undergraduate GPA, and passed General Biology I and II last year with high A's in both the lab and lecture portions of the class. I absolutely love biology; it is my favorite subject to study and to tutor!

Chemistry

I currently hold a 4.0 undergraduate GPA and am enrolled in Organic Chemistry. I received high A's in General Chemistry I and II, in both the lecture and lab portions of the class. Chemistry is one of my favorite subjects to study and teach!

Elementary Math

I have tutored several students in elementary and middle school math and have helped them improve grades, grasp concepts, and get ahead in classes. I love giving kids analogies and easy-to-imagine concepts that make math easier and more enjoyable. My method is to move at the student's pace and make sure he or she truly understands the material before moving forward. I bring a patient, encouraging, individualistic approach and believe that with hard work and determination, all students are capable of reaching their full potential.

Genetics

I completed and passed BIOL 3830: Genetics at the University of Colorado with a high A. This class focused on DNA replication, transcription, and translation, along with inheritance, DNA technology, cellular and molecular genetics, epigenetics, and other topics. True understanding of genetics is based on a thorough foundation of general biology, and I passed General Biology I and II (both lab and lecture portions) with high A's. My teaching approach will be to ensure the student has a solid foundation in biology upon which to build the principles of genetics. Rather than strict memorization, I will give students an understanding at the conceptual level, which is especially important in a challenging subject such as genetics.

Proofreading

In high school, I completed a rigorous English and literature program with high A's and have taken and passed lower and upper division university-level English classes including English: Rhetoric and Writing I and Business and Professional Communication. These classes have focused on repetition and intensive writing and speaking requirements. My goal when proofreading is to bring out the writer's true personality and message without changing their content or meaning.

Tennis

I am a USTA certified Coach Youth Tennis instructor, and I have been coaching private lessons for adults, juniors, and young children for nearly 1.5 years. I also have experience coaching group lessons for children ages 5-17. I have been around the game of tennis, by playing and competing, for 9 years and have exposure to almost every competitive aspect of the game, including high school, NCAA Division III tennis, college club tennis, and USTA tournaments.

Very patient and knowledgeable!

Danielle helped me to get a B in my chem 2 class, which is my worst subject in the whole world. She really helped me to understand the reasoning behind why we use certain equations or why things work a certain way. It really helped me to understand the content of the class rather than just memorizing it without understanding it. Furthermore, Danielle is not intimidating at all and is very easy to
