About Valentina


Bio

I'm a recently graduated biologist from Colombia in South America. I've done tutoring before while I was studying at the university. I used to help middle school, high school and even college students with different assignments, mostly related with science.

I love how childs and students in general are so passionate about learning, I love to answer all the questions they have because I believe it is when you're able to explain something to somebody else, that you actually understand it....

I'm a recently graduated biologist from Colombia in South America. I've done tutoring before while I was studying at the university. I used to help middle school, high school and even college students with different assignments, mostly related with science.

I love how childs and students in general are so passionate about learning, I love to answer all the questions they have because I believe it is when you're able to explain something to somebody else, that you actually understand it. Specially with science, I love to see people reactions when they get to understand how life and things work.

I studied 5 years of a Bachelor in Science in Biology back in Colombia, and I specialized in zoology. I know about ecology, taxomomy, genetics, molecular and cell biology, and even botany, landscaping and farming. In that time I did a lot of field work and travel to a lot of places where I had to do direct animal management and collections, and I also know how to behave in a lab. So I can teach you how to do both.

Also, in my last year of university I did a semester of human anatomy and physiology in the Medicine Faculty of my university, because I'mdeeply interested in biological anthropology. And I had the opportunity to study with real human bodies in the amphitheater.

My first language is spanish. I was born and raised in Bogota, Colombia. All my childhood, teenager and young adulthood experiences I had live them in spanish. Beasides, I'm very passionate about reading and writing, and love to teach about grammar and orthography in spanish, and compare it to english.

My mom, a purely colombian mom, taught me how to dance since the day I was born. It is very common to dance salsa music in Colombia, we love it. And, I was part of the salsa and bachata dance team of my university for two years. We get to won a regional competition and were second place in the national competition. I also attend a professional dance academy for 6 months.

Although I'm not professional competition level dancer, I do kno
