About Arlene May

Hello there! I have about six years' tutoring: 90% of my students are K-12th and 10% are college/adult students looking to review biology or writing. I have decided to continue tutoring because it a not just a job, it's a calling that helps me to serve my passion for being involved within my community but also reaching out to people who need assistance or just want to make sure they are on top of their work. Having come from Hawaii, everyone is family so everyone is treated with respect and understanding. I just want to make sure I do my best to help my student succeeds. Tutoring is also exciting because you become involved in different ways of teaching and learning.

I can provide the various ways I know that work well but I am also very patient. It is important to always have someone who recognizes which part of the topic is the weakness because after overcoming this weakness, it is just downhill from there.

This is my field! I love biology! Bio means life and -ology means 'study of' so the study of life is appreciating the big picture but also understanding the little pictures.

I do have the most experience working with K-12th. As a certified substitute teacher from Hawaii, I have worked with children with diverse backgrounds and learning styles. I would love to continue working with this age group if possible.

Please reach out to me if you feel we can work together =) We can discuss schedules and lessons... and possibly start working together.
