About Collin

I currently work as a research technician in an immunology lab at the University of Chicago, graduating from the University of Illinois at Chicago with a BSc. in biochemistry Dec. 2016. While attending UIC, I was 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. With a passion for applying quantitative reasoning to project based initiatives, I have also led two separate projects endorsed by the Clinton Global Initiative University in addition to starting the UIC incubator group, the Social Outreach Program.

I tutored frequently in high school through my schools NHS chapter and I did a little bit while at UIC. I seek to be a tutor again because I enjoyed my experience tutoring in high school and I believe I have something unique to offer my students. I ended up in the top 10% of my high school graduating class, but I wasn't always a very good student. I struggled with ADHD and as such had to develop a unique study regiment that would work for me. 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.

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.

Great Tutor

Collin L. has been a great tutor to my son who has been struggling with algebra and geometry. He is helping break down the problems, so it is easier for my son to understand. He is reliable and flexible with his schedule to coordinate with my son's availability. I am thrilled we got in contact with Collin!
