Grand Canyon University (Biology, Pre-Med)
As a sophomore in college, I discovered my passion for educating my peers. It began in the cadaver dissection lab where once fellow students finally established comfort in such a unique learning environment, they found themselves overwhelmed with the extensive material included within the course. Fascinated with anatomy and physiology, I came to the rescue by leading study sessions and quizzing my classmates. Once my professor acknowledged an incredible jump in test scores due to my contributions, I was quickly hired on as an instructional assistant in the anatomy lab at GCU.
Beyond hundreds of hours of presenting dissections and explaining structures of the body, I have also worked alongside the science lab coordinator where I gained further exposure and knowledge in the experimental aspects of physics, organic and general chemistry, and microbiology.
Thus, upon graduation I continued to lecture and inspire students and eventually patients. I achieve another role as an Instructional Assistant for General Chemistry and Microbiology as I worked as patient educator in physical therapy. A typical day consisted of describing muscle activation techniques to elderly patients followed by an explanation of catalytic hydrogenation of an alkene to a collection of college sophomores. The ability to witness the progress of patients and peers is the most rewarding aspect of my positions. Whether it's increasing mobility or improving a letter grade, I will go above and beyond to reach achievements.
One of the imperative tasks for a doctor is the education of patients. Through hands-on experience and hours upon hours of not only conquering each class but also teaching fellow students, I have attained mastery in an abundance of collegiate-level science courses.
I truly believe that my personal purpose is to utilize effective communication and a diligent work ethic to further the education, understanding, and professional success of my peers. I look forward to playing a role in your academic achievements in the near future! As a sophomore in college, I discovered my passion for educating my peers.

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.
