About Collin

I am a sophomore biochemistry major at the University of Illinois at Chicago, currently have a 3.33 GPA, and am also a member of the UIC honors college, an E-board member on UIC Society of Future Physicians, and a research assistant at the UIC College of Medicine. I tutored frequently in high school through my schools NHS chapter and I do a little bit at UIC. I really want to be a tutor again because I really enjoyed my experience tutoring in high school and that sense of satisfaction when my tutees did well. I miss that experience. I ended up in the top 10% of my graduating class, but I wasn't always that great of a student. I really had to develop a particular work ethic and embellish on my study skills to get to where I am today. I went from getting B's and C's to being a straight A student the latter two years of High School. I think as a tutor, I can really help kids unlock their potential so they don't have to go through a rough academic period. It doesn't take a genius to be a good student, it takes preparation and motivation. I think I can provide that preparation and motivation.

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.

ACT English

ACT prep course experience, 31 on ACT English, 92 - 98% CARS MCAT.

Geometry

I have taken math courses up to multi variable calculus and have prior experience tutoring math.

Guitar

I have been playing the instrument for 10 years and have a wide range of experience as well as formal training. I played in my schools honors jazz band, pep band, pit orchestra, and marching band at 1st chair for 4 years. I received an A in my high school AP music theory class took private guitar lessons for the first 5 years of my playing. I have also played in, for fun, a metal band outside of school during high school. If you would like video proof of me playing the instrument, there should be a video of me playing "universal mind" on youtube if you search for Collin Langer
