About Griffin

I am a 3rd year student at St. John's University in Collegeville MN, and I am an honors student and a biochemistry major. This means that I have taken numerous courses in many fields of science, including biology, organic chemistry, and physics. I have applied these skills in a research lab in China as a research intern this past summer. I excel in communicating difficult ideas.

I have experience tutoring organic chemistry in a classroom setting and in a laboratory setting as a TA. I love helping other students succeed, whether they are my peers or are in a different stage in their academic career. My major requires me to be one my toes constantly, and having a working knowledge with algebra, as well as the sciences listed previously. Furthermore, Being at a literal arts school requires me to maintain proficient in english and reading, which is crucial in any field.

Organic chemistry and biology overlap frequently, and I have taken numerous college level courses in organic chemistry and biology. I am already a tutor for organic chemistry at the university, and have a strong foundation in the chemistry taught in high school. I am able to explain chemistry in biology as well, namely the Photosynthesis chapter that many students struggle with.

I am a student who has a desire to pass on what I have learned to other students because I believe that education in science and math are crucial to society. Science and math are very difficult subjects, and they require special people to make children interested in them. I want to be that special person to spark a lifelong desire in students to understand the world around us.

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.

ACT English

I scored a 33 in my English section on the ACT; I feel I am able to help with grammar in general, and specifics on how to get a good score on the ACT.

Algebra 1

As a biochemistry major, I use algebra on a daily basis in my classes. I have a working knowledge of what the course will cover, and can even give examples of how it may be used in everyday life! I know it can be difficult to see how math is applicable to real life situations; many of the word problems are a little silly in the textbooks.

Biology

Biology is an integral part of my studies, and with a working background of organic chemistry present in biology I am able to explain things much better. I have a firm grasp on and am able to explain difficult topics like photosynthesis/cellular respiration and topics regarding genetics (DNA replication, translation, gene expression).

Chemistry

Chemistry is a crucial part of my studies, and I have more than conquered memorizing the math and the necessary concepts required to excel in high school chemistry. I have a wealth of tools and ways to explain some of the more abstract ideas found throughout chemistry. I am also a tutor of chemistry at my university.

Piano

I have played piano myself for 14 years. I still play today because I love the calming feeling it brings me. I am able to play a variety of pieces, including classical, show tunes, pop songs, movie scores, and modern classical music. My favorite composers are Philip Glass and Dustin O'Halloran. My favorite songs to play are Day One by Hans Zimmer and Mad Rush by Philip Glass

Prealgebra

As a biochemistry major, I use algebra and pre-algebra on a daily basis in my classes. I have a working knowledge of what the course will cover, and can even give examples of how it may be used in everyday life! I know it can be difficult to see how math is applicable to real life situations; many of the word problems are a little silly in the textbooks.
