For me, a central teaching goal is not only to help students learn the material, but to help them acquire the skills to learn, study, and think like a scientist. At this formative stage in their education, it is important to teach the foundation and language of biology, onto which they can build along their educational path and ultimately fulfill their career goals.
I believe that many steps can be taken to ensure that the information is relayed in an efficient manner that helps students retain the material. The best instructors are not those who have acquired the most knowledge, but rather those who are passionate about teaching, can keep students engaged and interested, and can relay information in a clear and effective way. It is crucial to maintain a pace and level of information that the students can keep up with, while making sure they are on track before proceeding to the next step.
Having gone through undergraduate studies, medical school, and residency training, I believe my experience would be valuable in my role as a biology tutor, especially for students interested in a medical career. I can be of greater value in this role by being approachable and helpful.
To me, the most imperative teaching goal is to maintain a comfortable and fun environment where my students, as well as I, can enjoy the process of learning. It brings me great joy to help students fulfill their potential and ultimately reach their goals. I believe that passing on knowledge is the best way for me to be of benefit to others.

Maryam breaks down the tough subjects of anatomy to a basic level, making it easier for me to understand. She goes above and beyond to help improve my learning; finding videos, models, pictures, etc. She is willing to reteach concepts until I understand. She is very knowledgeable of a variety of sciences, including biology, anatomy, etc. I strongly recommend!
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.
