B.A., University of Chicago (Biology)
Originally, I am from Lexington, Kentucky, but I am currently an undergraduate at the University of Chicago. I have done biology research for 5 years now, competed in mathematics competitions, and participated in creative writing seminars. I have also taken drawing classes at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and make films with the University of Chicago student-run production company, Fire Escape Films. I have a lot of experience learning a lot of different types of material and would be willing to tutor in an array of subjects.
I have 2 years of tutoring experience at literacy centers and elementary school after school programs. I have worked with students with learning disabilities, students who would like to get ahead, and students who just need an extra little bit of practice. My time tutoring has been predominantly with elementary and middle school age students. I am comfortable with teaching any subject at middle school level and below. When I was that age I also received a lot of tutoring, and I can personally see the formative results. It really got me excited about learning and exploring.
For me, that excitement and readiness to ask questions and explore is the most important thing to teach. I also know that to be a successful tutor you need to spend a lot of time with the student understanding his/her learning styles. Everyone absorbs the information differently and I am ready to work with the student to figure out how I can help him or her best.
I am now in a Calculus 3 proof based mathematics class. I also have experience tutoring elementary math, pre-algebra, and algebra 1.
I have done 5 years of biology research and presented my research in international conferences.
I was in a creative writing program where I tutored 4th and 5th grade girls about different styles of writing and creative exercises.
I would love for you to contact me through Wyzant.
Thank you and I look forward to meeting you! Originally, I am from Lexington, Kentucky, but I am currently an undergraduate at the University of Chicago. I have done biology research for 5 years now, competed in mathematics competitions, and participated in creative … Read more
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.
