University of Florida (Biology)
I am a college student and I am mainly interested in science, especially biology. I was the valedictorian of my high school and have been accepted into the University of Florida as a biology major. I really find learning about the sciences interesting and engaging, and they were my favorite subjects in high school and continue to be in college. I hope to continue my love of learning by becoming a professor teaching a subject in biology, such as anatomy and physiology.
I have completed 2 years at UF already, and have received A's and B's in General Chemistry 1 and 2, Organic Chemistry 1 and 2, Physics 2, and Physiology and Molecular Biology of Animals, among other subjects. In high school, I have obtained AP credit for Biology, Psychology, Physics 1, and Calculus, among others.
I am mainly interested in tutoring in math and science. I am proficient in high school level math up to Algebra. I am quite proficient in high school and college level science, mainly in biology, chemistry, and some physics.
I want to be a tutor because I want to supplement my income, I want to help others to learn, but mainly I want to explore what it will be like to teach, as I wish to be a professor when it comes time for me to settle into a career. I idolize many of my professors, and I find what they do to be fun, interesting, engaging, and very important. I want to have the same impact on others as they do.

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 had taken Algebra 1 in middle school in a magnet school. I am still quite well versed in the concepts of the subject. I know enough to have been able to learn Algebra 2 and Calculus, so I can safely say that I am qualified to tutor in the subject.
I took algebra 2 in high school and got an A in it. I can still do some basic functions, and I have retained enough information to tutor. My tutoring methods would be similar to how I was taught in high school, but a bit more one-on-one.
I took Anatomy and Physiology in high school and received Honors credit for it. I can still remember a lot of what I learned then and can readily learn more now. I plan on taking college level Anatomy, so I can very well prepare for it.
I took Biology in high school and received a 5 on the AP exam. I am still quite well versed in the subject. I am a Biology major, so I can say that I am well qualified to tutor in it.
I took chemistry in college, both Chemistry 1 and 2, and their respective labs. I received A's in both classes, and can still remember much of the information. I have also taken Organic Chemistry and am moving on to Biochemistry.
I took Geometry in high school and received Honors credit for it. The concepts are quite easy to understand for me. I can remember much of what I was taught and I find that high school level Geometry is not very hard to understand.
I have taken Organic Chemistry 1 and Organic Chemistry 2 at UF and have succeeded in both classes. I can still understand the basic concepts and even still have my class notes available, which I can use for tutoring. Through Organic Chemistry 2, I have learned to think intuitively about a chemical reaction or problem. My tutoring methods would be similar to the way that I learned from my professors, and I can help a student to think in terms of Organic Chemistry the way I was taught to.
I took Physical Science in middle school at a magnet school. I had moved on to AP Physics in high school and received a 3 on the AP exam. I can still understand the basics of Physics, enough to tutor in Physical Science.
I took Anatomy and Physiology in high school and received Honors credit for it. I also took Physiology and Molecular Biology of Animals in college and received an A in the class. I have still retained much of the information that was taught and am well qualified to tutor in it.
I took Prealgebra in middle school. I still know quite enough to be able to preform basic Algebra. I also know enough Algebra to have been able to learn Calculus in high school and receive AP credit, so Prealgebra is not hard for me to understand.
