About Tera

I am a recent graduate from Duke University with a dual degree in Neuroscience (BS) and Literature (AB). I have extensive tutoring experience with ages from early elementary through to high school and peer tutoring.

I am comfortable with a broad range of subjects, from the sciences to the humanities to standardized testing. I have a great personal record with required standardized tests such as the ACT (score: 34) and AP exams (National AP Scholar award; completed and scored a 5/5 on 10 AP exams in high school). I am more than happy to go into greater detail about my own academic record upon request.

I have worked as a Research Assistant in molecular biology, cognitive neuroscience, and physical chemistry laboratories conducting personal research. I have a strong record of high school standardized testing in science as well [AP Biology (5); AP Chemistry (5); AP Environmental Science (5); ACT Science (32)]. I have tutored elementary school students for their science coursework as well.

In the past, I have tutored elementary and middle school students in English/Language Arts classes and in preparation for state testing. For tutoring high school students, I have a strong standardized testing record [AP English Language (5); AP English Literature (5); ACT English/Writing (35); ACT Reading (35)] and extensive experience with exam prep materials.

Writing skill development is one of my strongest areas for tutoring students. I hold an AB in Literature from Duke and have completed the equivalent of ~2 years of writing-based graduate courses. I am more than happy to help a student of any age improve upon crucial writing skills and develop their own distinctive and commanding style. Personal writing samples are available upon request.

I am very flexible in terms of tutoring hours and location. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns.
