Hi, I'm Bryce. I graduated from Santa Clara University with a double major in Biology and Theatre. I love teaching people because when my students realize they really understand what they are doing, instead of following instructions, their faces light up. My approach to tutoring any subject focuses mainly on the development of learning as a matter of process rather than rote memorization.

Hi, I'm Bryce. I graduated from Santa Clara University with a double major in Biology and Theatre. I love teaching people because when my students realize they really understand what they are doing, instead of following instructions, their faces light up. My approach to tutoring any subject focuses mainly on the development of learning as a matter of process rather than rote memorization. The approach I take with my students lends itself especially well to testing because it develops the ability to use what they know to solve a problem they may not have specifically considered before.

I have experience with tutoring one-on-one and in groups of 5-10 for various AP classes, though my specialties lie in the two English based exams as well as AP Biology and AP Environmental Science. My teachers in each of these subjects asked me to tutor at lunch for them in high school, while I was in these classes. I am particularly familiar with the Biology exam, as I served as a TA the year after the test was changed and wrote many of my teacher's new labs and handouts. This is still one of the most rewarding experiences I have had in my entire academic career. Watching an entire class learn from a worksheet I spent hours drafting and rewriting invokes a sort of pride unique to teaching.

I also adore reading and love to work with younger students in literature-based settings. I am a firm believer that reading for fun or school makes you better in all parts of academia, not just in Literature.

My final area of expertise is in the proofreading of essays, resumes, reports, and applications. I love helping a student actualize the well polished, personal, and carefully thought-out essay of their dreams. I have a fairly light hand when editing, preferring to encourage stylistic choices and offer alternative arguments rather than simply inserting my own opinions and preferences.

Though it is my personal belief that you can be good at something and still do a poor job teaching it if you are a bad teacher, I did get a perfect score on my SAT Writing and 2280 overall, so it's safe to say I know the SAT rather well. I went on and have taught all three sections for several years, but the Writing portion is still my favorite.

Beyond just taking AP Biology in high school, I helped my teacher develop the labs, worksheets, and review forms she still uses while in the class. I tutored other students all through high school and passed with a 5. I went on to major in Biology with an emphasis in Biomedical Sciences, but I still hold a love of teaching science at the middle and high school levels.
