About Luke

I am currently in college pursuing my B.S. in Psychology. I have been on the Dean's List for all of my undergraduate career so far, and I am also a Resident Assistant for the Office of Residence Life. I have tutored in school, and privately tutored friends and other peers. Sciences and maths are where I excel. I focus more on sciences, but I can tutor up to Pre-Calculus for math. I am certified to tutor in my university for Biology, Statistics, Psychopathology, Sociology, and others. I am a writing tutor as well. In this job, I scan and read through essays and papers and look for areas where the writer wishes to improve. I have tutored kids from elementary school to college, and have also worked with kids with IEPs or 504 plans, so accommodating to the child's needs will be no problem at all.

I tutor most subjects, so please do not hesitate to ask me if I tutor it because most likely I do! My style is tutoring is very similar to a seminar-style classroom. I will first go over the material with the student to ensure that they have a basic understanding of the information, then I will ask the student where the trouble areas are, and we will go through each area one by one. I strive to ensure that the student's grade goes up, and will adjust my tutoring style if something seems to benefit him or her more than another style. I enjoy watching students succeed, and will put in the extra effort as long as I see it through the tutee as well. My schedule is very flexible, and I am more than happy to tutor multiple subjects at the same time. If you have any questions, please let me know!

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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.

Genetics

During AP Biology, I was very proficient in the Genetics unit. During study sessions before the AP exam, I was co-operating the genetics group along with one of my friends. I am able to do Punnett Squares, dihybrid crosses, and assess genetics using probability and the Punnett Squares. During Biology in college as well, I was proficient, earning a 98% on the exam.

Microsoft Outlook

My school only uses Microsoft Outlook for the email application. I am capable of using it on both Windows and Macs. I can compose, edit, and review emails and accounts, and am able to add accounts, edit accounts, and use both IMAP and POP3 servers in Outlook.

Microsoft Publisher

I consistently work with Publisher to create brochures and other media for both my classes and my on-campus job. I am proficient in creating, editing, and exporting media. I am good at editing templates to make them more user-friendly, and have created templates that other people use in my job.

Microsoft Windows

Starting from when I was 10, I have been using a Windows computer. I am familiar with XP, 7, Vista, 8, 8.1, and have a beta version of 10. I have had a Windows computer as my personal computer for 7 years, and regularly keep it updated. I am proficient in personalization, and have set up computers for both my parents and relatives.

Proofreading

Corrected over 100 papers in high school. Works privately with universities in proofreading. Attended various writing workshops in both high school and college. Capable of citing in APA, MLA, and Chicago Turabian.

Sociology

I took Sociology in college, and received an A in the class. I also tutored kids in other sociology sections privately, and their grades went up significantly.
