Berea College (Biology)
I'm a recent graduate from a small liberal arts college in Kentucky where I received my bachelor's in Biology and a minor in chemistry and I loved it! I'm all about science and love learning about and discussing topics like biology, chemistry, and physics. As an undergrad I learned that, although science is lots of fun, it can sometimes be difficult and using incorrect problem solving strategies can leave you very frustrated. I also learned that a good tutor can be absolutely key to, not only getting the right answers on assignments, but also learning the fundamental concepts that allow you to achieve maximum proficiency in science coursework.
During my time at Berea College, I worked as a Teaching Assistant at the Biology Department. Working as a tutor in classes and in labs was the best choice I could have made for two reasons. Firstly, I became better-versed in material as a result of helping others learn, and, secondly, I discovered my passion for teaching the sciences both at the 1-to-1 level and in groups. I delight in helping students hone their problem solving skills and overcome academic challenges.
I have research and teaching experience in cell biology, genetics, microbiology, chemistry (general, analytical, and organic), biochemistry, ecology, zoology, mathematics, and physics.
I won't be the tutor to give you all the right answers, but I will be there to help you work through problems and hone problem solving skills. Contact me if you want a tutor that is going to help you get the root concept of a problem and focus on learning skills.

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.
