Gannon University (Biology)
I have a Bachelor of Science degree in biology. As a recent college graduate, my knowledge is up-to-date in the constantly advancing field of biology. I also have many biology credits in sports and exercise science as I originally planned on going to medical school. As interests switched to wildlife biology, I focused my credits on these subjects and I am still very interested in pursuing a career in this field and love passing on this information. Also, mathematics comes naturally to me and I have taken courses up to calculus and statistics. I recently helped tutor college students in basic mathematics. I have very good teaching skills and I am able to pass on information in a way that creates an understanding for the student. I never pressure students or make them feel bad for not understanding information, but take time to get them on a knowledgeable level in order to succeed. Creative learning through ideas and personal examples help students to associate material with prior learning experiences and feel comfortable going into exams. Research papers are also a specialty and I am capable of teaching students to keep their personality while writing an educational paper, which was very common while achieving biology major.

Prompt, knowledgeable and a pleasure to work with! My head was jumbled with thoughts for an upcoming statistical article critique. Garrett was incredibly patient and helped guide me through the process with ease. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for an experienced tutor with a fresh approach. I'll definitely be utilizing Garrett in the future!
My awesome tutor, Garrett, helped me understand that SAT & ACT Math and Science were much less painful than I thought they would be. Since math and science are not my favorite subjects, my desire to study them for two hours every morning was little to none, but Garrett made my entire experience extremely enjoyable, particularly by putting the math in terms I could understand.
He was never frustrated that I needed him to explain the same thing more than once and was always very patient and understanding with me. I would recommend Garrett to anyone who needs an extra hand in math or science, especially students who are “afraid” of math like me! In my future academic endeavors, whenever needed and wherever possible, I will always return to Garrett for help in Math and Science!
Garrett was prompt in the email replies. He was available on a weekend, on short notice, during finals at regular fee! He was booked but found a time for us. He showed up on time, was pleasant and my 15 year old daughter (Honors student in IB AP) felt comfortable and learned easily with him. He helped her a lot with AP Trig. We will use Garrett again for tutoring as needed.
I would highly recommend Garrett. He is tutoring our son in biology and geometry. Our son really likes him and feels very comfortable around him. He is very knowledgeable and our son is learning very well from him.
Garrett is a great tutor, very patient and knowledgeable, he's always on time and and if something comes up he's willing to adjust his schedule to work with my daughter and she's doing well with him. I will definitely recommend him.
Very patient with my daughter who has ADHD and hates math. She can be a challenge and he has been able to keep her engaged and on track. He has a great sense of humor and has really helped my daughter in Geometry this year.
Can't put in words how much Garrett has helped me in Algebra. He's flexible, accommodating and easy to work with. I would highly recommend him to anybody needing help.
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 have been tutoring multiple ADHD students in mathematics, including algebra and geometry. The students see great success and I am told by the parents that nobody can ever really get them to focus and learn like I have been able to. With a good attitude and a lot of patience, I have seen ADHD students pick up on mathematics quickly and gain an advantage in class.
Very familiar with fundamentals of baseball both on a youth and high school level. played baseball up through high school and continued playing slow pitch softball in a men's league after graduating. Have knowledge and experience in teaching youth fundamentals of hitting, throwing and fielding as well as training high school athletes situational awareness and more complex play.
Trained with bodybuilder/trainer for two years and have been working out since high school. very educated on nutrition and well-being in order to maximize growth and balance of muscles. Always learning a variety of knew workout techniques by training with some of the top bodybuilders and treating the body as an art in order to sculpt muscles into a balanced, healthy look.
College credits in Plant Physiology, Plant Ecology and Plants & Society. Very good understanding of plant functions, plant anatomy, and plant ecology. Other Biology courses have also helped to fit plant roles into ecosystems and much knowledge has been gained on plant systems. Very capable of quickly recognizing questions and helping students to understand how plants can communicate without a central coordinating system.
I have taught reading, writing and mathematics according to school curriculum while developing a better understanding of material that advances students beyond expectations. I have worked with children as they prepare for kindergarten and as they advance through elementary. I have also done some work to helping children with learning disabilities. I like to follow Montessori methods of teaching but also believe that learning concepts by memorization is necessary to establish fundamentals of learning. My methods involve a concentrated hour of explaining all necessary coursework and reviewing previous lessons. Children are rewarded by their interests in subjects and encouraged to advance their own learning.
College credits in both vertebrate and invertebrate zoology taken in most recent semester before graduation. Understanding of loads of information packed into course and knowledge of each species' basic information. Able to help students learn an extensive amount of information by organizing each species' facts and behavior and recommend flash cards for this subject.
