University of Tulsa (Psychology)
Hello! My name is Darian and I am a freshman at the University of Tulsa. I am majoring in psychology and minoring in biology and Spanish. In high school I was valedictorian and the first ever at my school to complete the IB Diploma program and took all honors classes. I have made it to level five in Spanish and was able to get experience using it when I went to Costa Rica where I was able to communicate with the locals. I finished high school in Calculus/Statistics and am taking college calculus this year. On my IB scores I received a 5 in Spanish and English, and a 4 in psychology, math, and history. I am an excellent essay writer and have helped many people learn how to write an essay that receives good marks.
I also started a tutoring program at my school for athletes where I helped athletes with their homework. I have learned to learn how a student learns best and find different, attention grabbing ways to get the student to understand the work and not just memorize that way there is a more long term affect on the student. I get the student to do the work themselves and simply talk around what they need to do until they come to the conclusion themselves. I hope you give me the opportunity to help you or your student and I cant wait to hear from you! Hello! My name is Darian and I am a freshman at the University of Tulsa.

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 started varsity in my high school all four years. I was captain and made second team all Sunflower league senior year and was offered basketball positions at the Junior College, NAIA, D-3 and D-2 level. I was a coach of sixth grade developmental girl the summer of 2014 who all improved dramatically over a course of two months and about 10 weekly games.
I took debate for one semester where I debated almost every weekend about a topic and was ranked by judges. I also wrote an entire presentation that had to be delivered to administration, group of head coaches, booster club, PTSA, parents of athletes and department chairs of the school. I also had to write and present a speech in front of the entire student body for the black history program. I have listened to speeches given by peers and helped them edit and perfect it.
I took a course in developmental Psychology where we learned about learning skills and how to apply them. I have used these skills to help teammates improve in their classes and get them to a passing grade. I have also gotten these teammates to understand the material instead of just memorize it, leading to a long term retention of the information.
I ran the 100, 200, 300H, 100H, and 4x1 on varsity for all four years. I made it to state in two events both my junior and senior year. I was also team captain my senior year. Lastly I was awarded the Track Athlete of the year at my school and a district wide scholarship only given to one male and one female senior athlete.
I have played the violin for eight years. I was in several elite strings organizations that all needed to be auditioned for. I was voted section leader both Junior and Senior year and received 1 and 2 ratings in solo and ensemble contest.
