Northern Illinois University (Biochemistry)
My philosophy is that the classroom never ends. Learning and tutoring go hand in hand as mirror images of each other. To the naked eye I appear to be teaching the student, but what often goes unnoticed is that the student is also teaching me in the subject of life. So far from my tutoring experience I have been taught by the student the means of patience, virtue, and inspiration.
In my undergraduate career I studied math and science, specifically I majored in biochemistry and minored in biology and applied mathematics. I tutored students and student athletes, both one on one and in a group setting my final 2 years at Northern Illinois University in the subjects of general, organic, analytical, biochemistry mechanics, electromagnetism, general biology, and calculus 1, 2, 3, and differential equations. I am currently on route to pursuing a Master's degree in chemical engineering at the University of Illinois in Chicago. What I love most about tutoring is that it motivates me that I get to learn just as much as the student does.
My fascination with mathematics sprouted unexpectedly from a physics course I took, prior to that I had absolutely no interest in math whatsoever and found it difficult to pay attention to. This facet allows me to better connect with students having difficulty in math by troubleshooting the vague manipulation of symbols to a more practical understanding.
The ability to expedite the understanding of concepts by relating to other fields for a more unified understanding through different perspectives.

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.
At Northern Illinois University I minored in applied mathematics, where I was required to take calculus 1-3, linear algebra, differential equations, and partial differential equations. Of these subjects, I have experience tutoring calculus 1 and differential equations through the University both one on one and multiple students at a time.
At Northern Illinois University I majored in biochemistry and have a great deal of experience tutoring general chemistry, analytical, and organic chemistry classes at the collegiate level through the University.
