About Delia

I am a graduate of the University of Chicago looking for an opportunity to utilize my extensive science background to motivate and inspire children and adults to excel in fields of science. My passion for science education is demonstrated by my time and commitment to mentoring, training and supervising young minds while obtaining my doctoral degree. I trained and mentored at least three different undergraduate students with little science experience in hopes that they would find science as fascinating as I do. I trained and supervised their work and was very proud when one of the students presented their work at the Chicago Area Undergraduate Research Symposium. I also found time to volunteer with the Bio Outreach Program on campus. As part of the Bio Outreach program I worked closely with a Chicago-area high school teacher who taught Advanced Biology. I was a guest lecturer and together we worked to present a mini research symposium at the end of the school year for the student body. I discovered mentoring to be so rewarding that I even found time to volunteer as a science fair judge for a variety of elementary schools during my doctoral studies. Thus, in addition to pursing my own career goals, I have devoted much time and effort to inspire future scientists ranging in age from elementary school age to undergraduate students. I am also bilingual. Having studied Spanish from second grade through college due to a special immersion program. Therefore, I can tutor Spanish as well and I look forward to helping you achieve your goals and dreams.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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.

Algebra 1

I have always done well in all my math classes from geometry, trigonometry, algebra and calculus. As a scientist it was always part of my curriculum and core courses. What distinguishes me from other tutors is that I firmly believe that a good tutor teaches good study skills as well as the subject matter. Without both, a student will never reach their potential.

Biology

I enjoy tutoring science and working with kids. I have a degree from the University of Chicago in Molecular Metabolism and Nutrition. My dissertation was on islet transplants to help type 1 diabetes. I enjoy simplifying concepts to encourage kids to reach their potential.

Spanish

I learned Spanish at an early age due to a bilingual program from second grade through junior high school. I continued to study Spanish in high school and college studying Spanish writing and literature. I have been a Spanish lector at my church and practice my Spanish with my in-laws and community.

Excellent tutor, PHD, very easy to understand

Delia is one of the tutors that we've had the most positive experience from. Our child is attending a private school. His biology topics are a little overwhelming for us. I therefore had to look for a tutor. I picked Delia out of 8 candidates. I was very impressed by her credential, a PHD in biology from University of Chicago. I was, at the beginning, a little worried that she might not be very
