Dear Student,

I'm Natasha and I am a first generation college graduate now enrolled in a PhD program. Two years ago, I graduated magna cum laude with a Bachelor's of Science in Biomedical Sciences with a minor in Biology and now I am a 3rd year PhD student in Cancer Biology at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine (GPA = 4.0).

Dear Student,

I'm Natasha and I am a first generation college graduate now enrolled in a PhD program. Two years ago, I graduated magna cum laude with a Bachelor's of Science in Biomedical Sciences with a minor in Biology and now I am a 3rd year PhD student in Cancer Biology at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine (GPA = 4.0). For 2 years I tutored college students/peers in Math (Pre-calc and Calc), Biology (General Biology 1&2, Molecular and Cellular Biology, Cell Structure and Function), Chemistry (General Chemistry 1&2, Organic Chemistry 1&2, Analytical Chemistry, Biochemistry 1&2), Physics (General Physics 1&2) and Spanish. In addition to tutoring those subjects, I was also the teaching assistant (TA) for the Biology lectures. My students have always evaluated me highly, recommended me to their friends who needed similar help, and even asked for me to tutor other classes that were not offered. I was (and still am) able to tutor a wide range of science/pre-medical courses because (1) as an aspiring Physician-Scientist, I am absolutely fascinated with the world of science and medicine, (2) I have taken and aced a wide range of pre-medical classes and (3) have performed rigorous biomedical research at both the undergraduate and graduate levels that have helped me "see it to believe it". In addition to the classes mentioned above, I have also taken many upper level medical courses such as Anatomy & Physiology, Hematology, Immunology and Microbiology, Genetics and Cancer Biology, to name a few. Simply put, my above experiences have made me very well rounded in the core concepts of undergraduate pre-medical sciences.

So, what makes me a good teacher? I highlighted the phrase "first generation" in my introductory sentence because it truly defines the type of learner I am today- independent. On a more personal note, growing up in a home where no one spoke English as their first language and no one had a degree past high school, I had to learn independently, by trial and error on exams, by reading extra books and by being extremely inquisitive with my teachers and professors. In this way, I figured out on my own what works for me (visual aids, examples, videos) and have never again felt like I could not learn something. When I was able to pass on that knowledge to a friend/classmate, to have them understand the concept, I knew I had successfully learned the material. This type of learning - the kind where you are confident enough that you can pass on some knowledge to help another person learn it as well - is the type of learning that stays with a student permanently and thus is the type of learning I encourage. In college, unfortunately, particularly in large pre-med lecture halls, learning in the classroom is quite difficult for various reasons: lecture slides are typically dull and boring, it is difficult to ask questions to clear up your confusions with all your peers sitting around you, lectures are too fast-paced and jam-packed with information that you need more time to process, etc. Most of the time it is these very factors, and not the actual material being taught, that makes a class "hard" or "difficult" or "stressful". However, with a little one-on-one help, it will not be impossible!

As your tutor, I am dedicated to help you figure out what learning techniques will help you translate hundreds of slides and pages of information into fundamental and clear concepts that you will carry on with you for a lifetime. I will help you dig through the material to find the key concepts, reinforce those concepts by relating them to real-life examples and doing practice questions, and solidifying that knowledge by having you teach it back to me. It's an algorithm that has not failed and I am more than willing to help you learn it!

Your success is my success.
So, what are you waiting for?
Contact me and let's get learning!

Sincerely,

Natasha

Chemistry

I have been learning and teaching chemistry for 8 and 6 years, respectively. I’ve received straight A’s in all my classes and have also been able to help my students (who were struggling greatly before meeting me) do very well on their exams (B+ and above). I study my student’s personal slides and ask for their syllabi so that I can tailor each lesson exactly for that student to succeed in THAT class with THAT professor, as we all know that everyone’s style of teaching and testing is different.
Precalculus,

Precalculus

I was a chemistry and math double major for my undergraduate studies and had tutored math for 5 years at the college level, across many age ranges, both traditional and non-traditional students. I’ve received a A in every math class I’ve taken so far because I genuinely enjoy working out challenging problems.

I did very well in my undergraduate level genetics course and also have tutored students in the same course. As a graduate student I have aced all upper-level genetics courses and also have to interpret and understand cancer genetics on a daily basis as a part of my project.
