Tulane University (Ecology, Evolution)
Tulane University (Master's)
I just finished my bachelor's degree at Tulane and am now a Master's student studying ecology and evolutionary biology. I have a background in cell biology and neuroscience also. I have tutored for about 6 years, on and off, most often in Algebra 1 and 2, essay writing, and biology. I love tutoring because it can be so easy to get lost in a class, and I like to be a guide. All it takes is a new perspective for most students, since everyone learns differently. The focus of one-on-one time helps figure out what that student needs, which is so often ignored in large classes.
As part of my Master's work I am also learning how to teach, biology specifically, and am a firm believer that active learning is the most beneficial. That translates into tutoring, with a focus on concepts over memorization, which helps in the long run.
I tutored Algebra 1 at a local middle school, privately and in groups, through my time as a high school student. I continued over winter breaks in college as well.
I have a bachelor's degree in Ecology and Evolution, with additional coursework in cell biology, neuroscience, and chemistry. The science ACT also focuses heavily on interpreting data and graphs, which I interact with constantly.
I have lots of essay writing experience as well as a quick and easy essay planning map to use for test -taking situations.
I am passionate about science, math and writing, and like to simplify the subjects so they become less stressful for the student. Science especially can seem impossible to learn, but it is not as out of reach as it seems!

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.
