About Ushma

I am a recent graduate from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, with my Bachelor's in Integrative Biology. As the President of a community service organization on campus, helping others has always been a priority for me. Be it in a service project or help tutoring, I dedicate myself to helping others. Math and Spanish has always been interesting subjects for me. I have taken college level calculus and completed Spanish AP. I recently took a trip to Spain, which also helped solidify my conversational skills.

I was often the one classmates would come to when they needed extra clarification on a topic. I like to break problems down in the basics and work our way to the solution. I am hardworking, dedicated and patient. I also like to make learning fun! I find the best way to learn and remember topics is to come up with a fun and easy way to help apply similar thought processes to different problems!

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.

Biology

I have received a bachelor's degree in Integrative Biology from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. I have taken multiple courses in biology from cellular biology to ecology to animal behavior. I like to think of fun ways to remember different processes and love to help others learn biology!

Elementary Math

Math has always been a strong point of mine, and a subject I really enjoy. I believe that the fundamentals of math start early, and if you can master those, it will only make advanced math easier to understand. By helping younger students understand the importance of fundamentals, we can ensure success down the road. I have taken math courses up through college calculus. I come up with fun but effective ways for students to understand the material and help solve various types of problems.

Spanish

I have taken 6 years of Spanish through Spanish AP along with a couple courses in college. I enjoy speaking the language whenever I get a chance and recently returned from a backpacking trip through Spain. I am a patient, and fun tutor. Being a recent graduate of the University of Illinois I can help students learn and achieve goals by making the learning process fun!

Volleyball

I have been playing volleyball since I was 6 years old. I played throughout middle school and 2 years in high school. I played in the defensive specialist and libero positions. I have taught a few of my friends and neighbors how to improve their technique which has allowed them to receive a respective position on their high school volleyball teams.

Great Tutor — Ushma was extremely helpful in engaging my freshman son in Biology. She was patient and guided him through the chapter encouraging his participation in the learning process. As a result, he was prepared for the chapter test and earned his highest grade of the semester. She came to each tutoring session prepared and even made him note cards to study at home. I would highly recommend her as a tu ...
