About Amanda

As a magna cum laude graduate from Augustana College majoring in Biochemistry and Pre-medicine with minors in Spanish and Chemistry, I was able to see how hard work and being dedicated to my studies paid off. During my time at Augustana, I served as a Chemistry tutor for both general and organic chemistry, as well as a lab proctor that oversaw lab procedures and was available for any questions. While in high school, I was a mentor that worked on developing skills needed for high school to a group of freshmen for their whole academic year. This experience helped prepare me to mentor a group of college freshmen to acclimate into their collegiate year as well. I am a dedicated, patient, and enthusiastic person who wants to be able to help tutor you in a learning style that works best for you.

During each session, I hope to review topics that you feel you are struggling with and make sure you leave the session feeling more comfortable than you entered. I hope to challenge you, but not to the point where you become overwhelmed and frustrated. I hope to make sure to break down the material as much as possible to help you understand it before applying it to practice problems and any homework problems you have.

I make sure to try and adapt best to your learning style to make sure you are getting the most out of each session. I hope to guide you to the correct answers and realizations rather than just provide you answers. Sometimes working backwards from the answer is helpful too though! I am a patient, dedicated, and enthusiastic individual who wants to see you succeed just as much as you want to!

I look forward to hearing from you and having the opportunity to provide you help to achieve success in your studies!

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.

Chemistry

During high school, I took both honors chemistry and AP chemistry and scored well on the AP test. Since I majored in biochemistry in college, I took general chemistry, organic chemistry, biochemistry, analytical chemistry and physical chemistry courses. While in school, I was also a chemistry tutor for general chemistry and organic chemistry as well as a lab proctor who oversaw general and organic chemistry labs and was available for any questions or guidance.
