About Liam

I love teaching nearly as much as I love learning.

To me there is no greater sense of achievement and accomplishment than learning and understanding something new. I've experienced countless different teachers and professors during my time as a student, but only the select few that clearly loved to teach really peaked my interest in understanding the subject matter. An apathetic instructor is no more than an audible textbook, spouting facts and equations without fervor.
I truly have a passion for the beauty that science can hold, the concrete certainty of mathematics, as well as the intricate yet simple elegance of reading and writing.

I am entering my final year as an undergraduate Biochemistry major at Florida State University, and will be heading into medical school the following year. Although new to WyzAnt, I've spent the last four summers tutoring dozens of students ranging from elementary school children preparing for the FCAT, all the way to high school students looking to improve their grades and SAT scores.

As a tutor, my aim is to help the student accomplish their main goal, whether it's an "A" on an upcoming exam, a better grade in the class, or just an overall increased proficiency in the subject matter. On top of that there would be no greater reward than knowing that during my time tutoring I was able to spark a true desire to learn, a desire that may one day manifest into the desire to teach.

I pride myself on being patient and well-spoken, but also straightforward and honest, without being ridiculing. I often encourage my students to take a broader view and tackle their material from all angles, so as to never be discouraged by what may seem too difficult or even impossible at first glance. Unnecessary complexity is hardly ever the right way to go about teaching, so I always ensure that my explanations are presented in a concise manner that is relatable and easy to comprehend, while also being easy to draw from memory during quizzes and exams.

*I expect the student to bring their own subject material and practice problems (including textbooks, notebooks, homework sets and study guides). Any exceptions must be discussed with me prior to the scheduled lesson via email, text or phone call.*



I actually enjoy math, which is a statement I do not hear often, even from those who would consider math their strong suit. I have taken all math courses up through Calculus 2 with relative ease, placing me at one class away from receiving a minor in Mathematics. I also scored a 700 on the mathematics portion of the SAT.

I am a Biochemistry major and as such have taken numerous biological courses including: Biology 1 and 2, Biology 1 and 2 Laboratories, Eukaryotic Diversity, Cell Structure and Function, and Genetics. Having received an "A" in each of these courses, I feel confident in my ability to teach the material.

I will be completing my Modern Physics course this coming semester, granting me a minor in Physics. Physics fascinates me, but is often considered an extremely difficult subject. I find true joy in being able to help others break down the complexity of physics into something tangible and simple to grasp.

I have always had a love for reading and writing, which manifested during high school in my AP English Language and AP English Literature courses. I've learned countless techniques that help me analyze and understand the meaning behind particular passages, as well as methods for organizing jumbled thoughts into something cohesive and eloquent for writing essays.

Tutoring hardly feels like a job, and definitely doesn't feel like a time-consuming chore either. I thoroughly enjoy being able to teach, so tutoring to me feels more akin to a hobby or a pastime than anything else. I believe that when presented in the proper manner, learning new information and gaining an education can not only be pleasant and entertaining, but even something to look forward to.
I'm flexible and more than willing to do my absolute best to help my students achieve their goals!
