University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (Biology)
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!

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 tutor!
Ushma has been a great resource for our family and for my daughter. Like most teenage girls, they don't want help navigating through their high school years, especially from their mothers! We as mothers, however, believe that we can solve all their problems, if they would just listen to us! Truth is, we are mothers, not educators and we have to look to the "professionals" for help when needed. In this capacity, Ushma has been awesome! She is professional, prompt, courteous, and knowledgeable about all subjects that she tackles. She came into our home and established a connection with my daughter right away, thus gaining her trust and cooperation. Ushma is very good at taking a complex item, breaking it down and simplifying it so that it's more easily understood. Biology and algebra have been a struggle for my daughter, but through Ushma's eyes, it's becoming increasingly clearer.
Our daughter started working with Ushma this year and she is phenomenal. Her grade is now an "A" in her first AP high school science course. Ushma is on time, answers e-mails right away and brings positive energy into her teaching experience. She is a natural at explaining complex information. I would highly recommend her!
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.
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!
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.
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!
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.
