About Trevor

My name is Trevor. I have 8 and a half years of tutoring. I have always worked in the educational field as a undergraduate teaching assistant, high school mentor, youth education counselor, and as a lab and field intern.

I have a Bachelor's degree in political science and international affairs with a focus on economics from the University of Colorado at Boulder and an Associate's degree in Biotechnology from Delaware Technical Community College. I tutored students in political science, economics, chemistry, biology, statistics, math, writing, and more.

My effective tutoring strategy starts with identifying my students' learning style. Since each individual student has a specific way they learn best, I tailor my lessons to be accessible to the way their brain works. This method also provides insights to the student in learning how they learn that allows the student to perform better in all their coursework.

My full time job is in workforce development to create a workforce that has the skills and competencies that are in-demand by employers. I've worked extensively with job seekers to identify career pathways and how to achieve them. My view on education is not only the acquisition of knowledge, but teaching lifelong skills that are needed to succeed personal dreams and meet the needs of employers.

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.

Genetics

I have an associate's degree in biotechnology. I have taken genetics courses as well as upper division courses that cover specific concepts in genetics, such as biotechnology, microbiology, evolution, and ecology. I have done two years of population genetics research, where I applied concepts of genetics and biotechnology to my research daily. I was a TA for Bio 1 at CU Boulder, and I conducted review sections for the genetics section of the course. I have also helped a graduate student's genetics project in the ecology department, where I guided him on the genetics aspects of his research.

Political Science

I am senior majoring political science and international affairs. I have taken courses in all aspects of political science. I have done extensive reading in and know theoretical and factual basis for my field. I have great success in my courses by applying the theories and science of politics to coursework. I combine the practical knowledge of my field and know how to compile that knowledge into theoretical applications. I am organized in my essay writing techniques and help students learn the best process to write a successful political science paper that is convincing and well-written.

Public Speaking

I have two years of debate experience in high school, one of those years being the coach and captain of the team. I have three years of high school mock trial and 3 years of college mock trial, where I helped train new members and edit their work, and half a year of college Model United Nations. I know what it takes to transform from a shy kid horrified of speaking in class to a competitive and adept public speaker.

He was willing to support me without wasting any time. And regardless of all that, he questioned me unlike others to make sure that I truly understand the concepts. I never thought I would be able to get it, but all I can say is he's amazing.
