About Penelope


Bio

I have 10 years of experience tutoring high school, college, and graduate students in math and/or science. My favorite subjects to tutor include: statistics, chemistry, biology, geometry, trigonometry, and precalculus! Additionally, I have experience tutoring all general subjects and test-prep (ACT, COMPASS, PSAT, SAT).

I practice the "I do, we do, you do" method while tutoring. Over the years, I have noticed most students I work with experience test anxiety and second-guess their answers....

I have 10 years of experience tutoring high school, college, and graduate students in math and/or science. My favorite subjects to tutor include: statistics, chemistry, biology, geometry, trigonometry, and precalculus! Additionally, I have experience tutoring all general subjects and test-prep (ACT, COMPASS, PSAT, SAT).

I practice the "I do, we do, you do" method while tutoring. Over the years, I have noticed most students I work with experience test anxiety and second-guess their answers. Therefore, utilizing this methodology allows students to feel comfortable with course material and gain confidence in their skills to succeed in school.

Additionally, I emphasize the importance of having students begin to consider, and hopefully identify their preferred learning style and studying methods. I believe knowing your preferred method of learning will help students as they continue their education, and it allows me to cater each lesson to your student's needs. I also stress the importance of organization skills and keeping one's work neat and organized. This allows students to develop a pattern in their work, providing them with comfort when solving problems on their own.

I graduated with a dual Bachelors of Science in biology and chemistry, as a distinguished scholar of my university with high honors. I have a Masters of Public Health in epidemiology and certificate in human rights from Emory University in Atlanta.

Please note for 2021-22 I will only be offering ONLINE lessons.

Statistics

Statistics

I have 7+ years experience studying and tutoring statistics and probability. Surprisingly, epidemiology is a lot of math so I frequently use poisson and binomial distributions to describe health data from populations. Please let me know if you are looking for help with a lab component too- I am familiar with some statistical packages.

Biochemistry

I was a double major in biology and chemistry for undergrad so I had a unique experience taking both the bio and chem versions of biochem. My biology biochem class was very focused on amino acids and the physiologic impact while my chemistry biochem class emphasized biological reactions, chemical structures, and the energetics behind those important reactions!

She’s really helpful, and made sure I understood what we were working on. She was engaging and worked some out with me and made sure I followed what she was doing.

Mackenzie, 2 lessons with Penelope

Very friendly and so smart!

Penelope helped me with a homework assignment for an Intro to SAS Programming class. She was very patient with me and helped me complete my assignment. I would definitely recommend tutoring from Penelope!

Maddison, 2 lessons with Penelope

Great tutor

She was able to go through the concepts of statistics and then do practice problems to ensure I understood the material. Definitely recommend her if you need help with math!

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Penelope patiently reviewed the material in preparation for my daughter's test. She was knowledgeable and thorough. She queried my daughter on her understanding of the concepts covered and helped my daughter gain confidence. My daughter's response after the session - "I am a math beast!"
