Grand Valley State University (Mechanical Engineer)
My name is JP and I'm a college graduate with a bachelor's degree in human biology from Michigan State University. I have studied biology, chemistry, organic chemistry, physics, calculus 1,2, and 3, and much more. I am also currently attending Grand Valley State University to earn a second bachelor's degree in mechanical engineering.
I started out in 2011 by tutoring freshman students at MSU in calculus 1 and chemistry, and last year I began to tutor high school students in pre-calculus and biology as well. I've been successful because I'm good at working with students one-on-one to break down complex ideas into easily understandable chunks. My goal is not to have you just memorize a series of steps, but to help you truly understand the theory. Once you have accomplished that, you can tackle any problem that comes your way. For example, this past summer I worked with a GRCC student who was having trouble in his pre-calculus class. Over the course of the semester I met with him every week and practiced the material he was struggling with by first reviewing the concepts and then doing problems from the book. This brought his homework and exam grades up from the low sixties to the high eighties.
I also know that you can't teach every subject the same way, so I vary my teaching style to suit the student and subject. For example, learning to take derivatives is not the same as learning how your body produces energy, so while mastering math involves doing lots of practice problems, mastering biology may require you to do a lot of memorization and review, which will then lead to understanding of the concepts.
I am very well versed in high school and college math, chemistry, biology, and physics, so if you're struggling with anything math or science related, please don't hesitate to contact me because I will create an individualized plan to help you succeed. I also have a flexible schedule so setting up tutoring times and locations should be a breeze. Hi there!
