University of Pikeville (Biology)
My name is Haley, I am 22 years old and am a former student at the University of Pikeville. I have 85 credit hours toward a biology degree with a specialization in animal science. I have completed all general education courses required from my private college, as well as the majority of science classes. Some classes include: biology, chemistry, zoology, genetics, physics, organic chemistry, ecology, and evolution. I am currently attending Penn Foster online for a veterinary technology degree. I have previous experience tutoring, as I was a college tutor at UPike. I tutored any student who needed guidance with reading/writing. I provide open ended questions to students to help them comprehend what they're studying, as well as engage in a variety of study techniques to prevent students from losing interest. The techniques I use depend solely on the student. I understand and encourage students to first discover their learning style, (whether they be a sensory learner, visual learner, or active learner). An example would be while I was tutoring at UPike, I would have work sheets and word games to help keep learning fun. I also advocate the use of technology and try to incorporate it into my lessons whenever possible. I encourage the student to generate ideas and hypothesis for themselves, while I provide the study material. I am very compassionate towards ALL students and understand that learning difficult material does not happen overnight. I intend to be patient and helpful, while at the same time providing structure and guidance when necessary. Hello,

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 taken several genetics classes as well as genetics lab courses. I have experience with punnet squares, recessive and dominant genes, and also have experience with genetics in animal science.
I am currently studying Animal Science to become a Veterinary Technologist. I have taken several courses in zoology, as well as animal behaviors.
