About Victoria

I'm well versed in students' problems with learning sciences and languages. I have three degrees. I have a dual degree in Biomedicine and Spanish. I also have a minor degree in Chemistry. As a Chemistry TA, I worked with over 100 students in Chemistry 1100 and Chemistry 2200. I held regular office hours for three days a week and had experience working with student on a one-to-one basis. As a Chemistry TA and grader, I was able to pinpoint the problem areas in a student's comprehension of the science. I was also able to properly address and solve these issues in my sessions. The students seemed to enjoy working with me and my hands on approach to their learning. In this capacity, the students that attended my sessions had a 98% pass rate with the majority receiving a B or higher. I also worked special needs students in Chemistry while in this capacity. My experience in Biology is vast. I've worked and volunteered as a medical assistant and community health educator in two Spanish speaking clinics. In this capacity, I solely spoke in Spanish and translated between healthcare provider and patient. In addition, I was able to translate what I learned in the classroom to what I did in work.

Furthermore, these experiences have allowed me to tackle a student's problem from several angles. I've taught medical students in the clinical setting. When teaching Biology, I particularly enjoy working with clinical students. Nevertheless, I've found that applying what we experience everyday to the study of the Chemistry and Biology tends to resonate with students at every age. Using this method, I can effectively teach and engage a range of students from middle school to graduate school. Lastly, I've always had a knack for languages. As a high school student, I was at the top 98th percentile in my ACT English. I'm fluent in Spanish. As a non-native speaker, I am well versed in helping out students who are new to Spanish master the language.

As a tutor, your goals are my goals. In our first session, we will discuss your individual plans for your education and the role that I might play in it. Together we will create a study plan that is feasible and doable. My tutoring approach is focused towards your individual goals. I can provide resources that will aid you in your studying. With my help, you will master the subject matter! I am beyond thrilled to be apart of your educational journey. See you soon!

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.

Anatomy

I have studied translational and clinical anatomy. I have received high scores in both graduate and undergraduate courses.

Biology

I received dual degrees in Biomedicine and Spanish. I have taken and mastered graduate level courses in Biology. I co-authored a publication in Entomology. Furthermore, I work as a healthcare provider. I can relate what is taught in Biology to the Health sciences. I specialize in all types of Biology from Plant biology to Human biology. I am able to make Biology fun, vibrant, and straightforward for all ages.

Chemistry

I've been a chemistry TA at the undergraduate level. I've been a "fill in" professor for chemistry at the my alma mater.

Spanish

I received my degree in Spanish. In addition, I worked at several Spanish speaking clinics as a medical assistant and a community health educator. These clinics were in Detroit and Philadelphia. While working at these clinics, I spoke Spanish fluently and would frequently translate between English and Spanish.
