Claremont McKenna College (biology)
I am a recent college graduate from Claremont McKenna College, where I earned my bachelor’s degree in biology. While there, I played four years as an outfielder for the Claremont-Mudd-Scripps softball team. I am currently applying to veterinary school for next year with the intent of specializing in either wildlife or marine medicine.
I first began tutoring my sophomore year for the W.M. Keck Science Department at the Claremont Colleges. I tutored there for five months during the spring semester, and assisted students taking General Principles of Chemistry with problem sets, lab write-ups, and preparing for exams. Tutoring was done in groups, and there were nights where there were more than 30 students in the room at a time. The method I developed was to assist students who needed help understanding a problem, and if I found that more than one student was having issues with a certain problem, I would then demonstrate the problem on the board so that they could all follow along and understand the concepts.
After returning from summer break, I became a tutor under the Scripps College Dean of Students Office, where I was employed from the beginning of junior year until my graduation this last May. I tutored students one-on-one in Introductory Biology, General Principles of Chemistry, Genetics, and Introductory Italian. I helped students finish problem sets, review and correct lab write-ups, review lecture notes, prepare for exams and quizzes, and expand Italian vocabulary and fluency. I developed a slightly different method while tutoring one-on-one, because most students requesting a tutor already knew exactly what area they needed help with. I would answer their questions, and if I found a particular concept they were having trouble with, we would find problems that tested that concept, and go through it together until they were able to complete the problem on their own and explain the concept back to me.
Having just graduated from undergraduate school and recently gone through the application process again for veterinary school, I understand the application process for colleges, and can help find ways to strengthen the application and essays. Since I am a four year athlete, I understand the college recruiting process for athletes, and can help you understand that process. I enjoy tutoring and seeing others understand concepts they previously did not get, and cannot wait to help you.

Kendall does an excellent job teaching my daughter. Since we have hired her, my daughter's grades have improved and she is more confident with her subjects.
Kendall is very knowledgeable in the field of biology. Regardless of what my daughter is studying that week, she can easily explain the subject.
Prompt and flexible. Covers 7th grade common core math and science. My 7th grader has been able to work on her homework more independently since starting weekly tutoring with Kendall.
My daughter needed help as she was falling behind in high school chemistry. Kendall presents the subject in a new light for my daughter to grasp and is very patient and has excellent knowledge of chemistry. My daughter's grade has been improving greatly over the last 3 weeks and working with Kendall has given her the confidence to embrace Chemistry once again instead of seeing it as a dreaded subject. Don't think twice, contact Kendall. You won't regret it.
My 8th grade daughter is pretty shy and was not too excited about having a tutor for her algebra class.
By the end of her first session, Kendall had her smiling and laughing about her math which shows me that she is much more comfortable with her own abilities. After the session my daughter was excited to show us what she had learned from Kendall and how easy the math seems to be for her now.
Thanks so much Kendall.
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.
I graduated in May 2013 from Claremont McKenna College with a degree in Biology. I have two and a half years of tutoring experience in college level chemistry as well as two years tutoring college level biology for both the W.M Keck Science Department and Scripps College Dean of Students Office. I took the ACT in order to apply for undergraduate school, so I am familiar with the testing format, as well as having recently taken the GRE for graduate school.
I am a Biology major from Claremont McKenna College with upper division coursework in Comparative Physiology, Animal Behavior, Vertebrate Anatomy, Genetics, Cell Biology, Biochemistry, Sensory Evolution, and Tropical Marine Biology. I also completed a yearlong thesis looking at the behaviors of black phoebes in response to house finches. I have two years of experience tutoring Introductory Biology, and a year of tutoring Genetics through Scripps College Dean of Students Office.
I have taken two semesters of General Principles of Chemistry, two semesters of Organic Chemistry, and one semester of Biochemistry when I attended Claremont McKenna College as a Biology major. I tutored General Principles of Chemistry for five months at the W.M. Keck Science Department, another year tutoring General Principles of Chemistry for Scripps College Dean of Students Office, and have tutored through WyzAnt for a year and a half.
I graduated in May 2013 from Claremont McKenna College with a degree in Biology. My upper division courses included comparative physiology, animal behavior, vertebrate anatomy, genetics, cell biology, biochemistry, and microbiology. I was also employed by the Scripps College Dean of Students Office as a Genetics tutor during the 2012-2013 school year.
I have played softball for 16 years, and recently graduated from Claremont McKenna College, where I played as a four year outfielder for Claremont-Mudd-Scripps. I have assisted in coaching my younger sister in the past, and am able to teach hitting, fielding, and throwing.
