About Trevor

From my nine years of experience tutoring, I believe that student success is not related to ability, but gaps in strategies that students use to learn the material. My approach to tutoring is developing strategies for students to take charge of their learning. Often called metacognitive strategies, students that work with me will be able to understand their own thought processes and learn any course material.

My nine years of tutoring experience has ranged from biology, chemistry, economics, writing, political science, math, and others. Regardless of subject, students run into the same problem in every subject: you are or your student is not prepared with the correct strategies for mastering new material.

Some examples of my approach:
- Helping students best identify gaps in their knowledge to study smarter
- Developing effective study strategies that work into busy schedules
- Creative, fun approaches to material that enable students with all learning styles

If you are not utilizing these strategies, you are probably wasting time on ineffective studying, focused more on your current ability than your potential to grow, and not performed to your expectation.

In addition to experience tutoring, I have worked as a undergraduate teaching assistant at University of Colorado at Boulder, worked for numerous organizations on youth education, and taught laboratory techniques to undergraduates. I currently work for the Markle Foundation developing training and tools to effectively teach adults.

Please reach out to me if you have any questions about my experience, my approach, or are ready to get started on the path to successful learning!

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.
