About Christian

I have an affinity for helping students in difficult classes because many of them fail to realize they have the potential to perform better. I aim for constructive time management and proper practice of proven solutions during my sessions with students. I recently graduated from Florida State University with a Bachelors in Biological Science maintaining above a 3.56 GPA throughout my undergraduate career. Currently, I am finishing my first year in my Masters in Public Health with a specialization in Environmental & Occupational Health track at Florida International University. Thankfully, I have maintained the high academic marks I achieved in my undergraduate career by achieving all A's in my first semester of graduate school. My current GPA in my graduate schoolwork is a 3.8, and this has been the most challenging year yet for me in college given the challenge of managing time as a graduate assistant expected to conduct environmental genomic research procedures aimed at understanding certain genes involved with the onset of breast cancer. I am set to complete my degree in the summer and will begin as a doctoral student in the fall of 2017. Challenges only make me more motivated to achieve success both for myself and my students that are motivated to vanquish any goals they wish to achieve. If you set a proper study plan and focus on understanding your weaknesses in a certain subject then you have the ability to perform at a standard you wish to set as a student. I aim to teach you the proper study methods that will translate to more positive results that are true to your expectations of academic performance.

I have helped tutor many different people over the past few years. I was a teaching assistant for an Anatomy & Physiology class at Florida State that consisted of over three hundred health profession students. During the course of two semesters year I helped tutor and organize help sessions for students having difficulty grasping concepts in the class. I felt a sense of fulfillment in watching my students improve their test scores drastically over the semester. Furthermore, I helped tutor students as part of a service by my biology honor society. After graduation, I obtained a tutoring position at Club Z Tutoring where I currently help students in subjects such as Biology, Algebra, G.R.E prep , and much more. I currently also serve as a graduate assistant at Florida International University where I facilitate a class of a hundred students concerns in conjunction with my research professor.

I challenge myself everyday to help better the academic standing of my students; furthermore, if they are not content with my service I will not charge them or their guardians. I like to keep what I cover in my sessions logged and I complete weekly progress reports with my client feedback in regards to what they hope to improve on. I am flexible with time and I always confirm with my students sessions we have over the week. I prefer to have a weekly regimented schedule for my students. I prefer quiet working spaces such as libraries, coffee shops, bookstores, etc. However, I am fine with tutoring at home if the noise is not a distraction during sessions. Also, I have become experienced with the online tutoring community here at WyzAnt and look forward to helping students across the nation. Recently, I entered above 50 hours of tutoring across various clients I have had the pleasure to serve over the past year. I promise to make each session both a productive and comfortable learning experience just as the sessions I have completed with all of my past students. Please read some of the testimonials from past students I have tutored that can attest to my ability as a tutor. Thank you for your time and interest. Send me a message with your name and area of study you would prefer tutoring in.

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.

Algebra 1

I am qualified to teach Algebra I because I have regularly used the basic principles of the subject in both my role as a student and tutor over the past several years. I routinely scored high marks in all my math classes involving Algebra such as College Algebra, Calculus, and Physics. I currently help tutor a student weekly on algebra concepts and I am proud to say she has drastically shown improvement.

Algebra 2

I have taken classes pertaining to all the knowledge I gained in Algebra 2. I currently tutor the subject to a few students and they have shown improved results on their exams. Furthermore, I have taken all advanced algebra classes during my time in college.

American History

I consistently have scored A's in classes pertaining to History. I scored a 4 on my AP American History exam which helped me bypass two history classes. I currently am tutoring a student who has shown much improvement in her knowledge of the subject.

Anatomy

I have already been a teaching assistant for Anatomy class in college. I obtained the position by performing highly when I actually took the Anatomy I and II classes. I helped organize and proctor test material for a class of over 300 students in the subject.

Biology

I graduated with a Bachelor's of Biological Science with cum laude honors. I maintained above a 3.7 GPA in my Biology core classes which led to a teaching assistant position in the biology department. I'm a member of the nationally recognized Tri-Beta Biological Honor Society which is reserved for highly competent students of Biology.

Biostatistics

I have completed three courses that deal with Biological Statistics including Biostatistics itself as a Biological Science major. Furthermore, I have tutored pass students in Biological Statistics during my time as a teaching assistant at the King Biological Department at Florida State University. Finally, I have conducted graduate research using statistical analysis of clinical trials where Biostatistic concepts are vital to analyze the data.

Chemistry

I have taken and performed well in chemistry classes in my Biological science major. The chemistry classes I have taken include Chemistry I and II, Organic Chemistry I and II, and Biochemistry. I also have performed labwork in all the aforementioned chemistry classes; thus, I have a practical knowledge of how much of chemistry works. I have also tutored over the past few years several students in Chemistry helping them better understand the concepts involved with the subject.

Geometry

I have tutored Geometry over the past 2-3 years. I scored high in the subject in both my SAT and GRE exams. Finally, I routinely used its concepts in classes such as trigonometry, calculus, and physics.

GRE

I have experience taking and succeeding at the GRE. I know how the test is formatted and what concepts to mostly focus on come test day. I also have tutored people in GRE prep material as a private tutor and helped improve their overall score from their first diagnostic practice exam.

Microbiology

Currently work in cancer genomic laboratory at Florida International University where we are trying to access the role of NRF1 regulation of oxidative stress molecular processes which may help explain the oncogenetic activity which occurs once genetic regulation is inhibited. Microbiology concepts are necessary components to create stock of bacterial DNA to be experimented within the lab. Also, have taken a course and laboratory training in microbiology.

Physiology

I was a teaching assistant in college for an Anatomy & Physiology class comprising over 300 students. I obtained the position by performing with high marks when I actually took the class myself; furthermore, I took a Vertebrate Physiology class in which I passed with an A as well. I helped tutor students in the class in concepts of Physiology that were difficult to grasp, helping them better improve their preparation for test day.

Psychology

I gained experience as a student and tutor of psychology classes during my undergraduate career at Florida State University. My minor at Florida State was in Psychology and almost half of the courses during my undergraduate career were Psychology based.

Statistics

I am qualified to tutor statistics because I have taken two statistics courses (Biostatistics & General Statistics) during my undergraduate degree in which I garnered high scores. Furthermore, I have tutored several students in regards to statistic class issues and statistics normally seen on a test like the GRE. I also have experience acquiring statistical values and graphs from mass sets of data on Excel, Statlab, and more programs.
