Bio

Hey there! I'm a sophomore at Pomona College studying computer science and biology. I have tutored for over 5 years; I love it because I enjoy helping students to not just succeed, but feel confident in and excited about their work. I have tutored students as young as three and as old as 35- I value getting to know my students individually, and adapting my tutoring style to best suit their needs. I am warm and patient- never should a student feel that a question is silly.

Hey there! I'm a sophomore at Pomona College studying computer science and biology. I have tutored for over 5 years; I love it because I enjoy helping students to not just succeed, but feel confident in and excited about their work. I have tutored students as young as three and as old as 35- I value getting to know my students individually, and adapting my tutoring style to best suit their needs. I am warm and patient- never should a student feel that a question is silly.
My favorite subjects to tutor are English, Python, math, and biology, but I am experienced with tutoring in a wide range of topics. I am also a seasoned essay editor, and can provide insightful feedback on any writing. With the right tutor, a student's most challenging subject can become their new favorite. I strive to be that tutor for my students!

While I have tutored over 20 elementary schoolers, my excitement and compassion are what set me apart as a tutor for elementary schoolers. I love learning, and I bring this to my sessions, sharing my joy with my students so they too will have fun. I am flexible and patient- I know how to switch between subjects to keep a student engaged, and how to use "breaks" that are still helping to develop their skills. Moreover, I always use multiple approaches. Is a student struggling to learn how to identify prime numbers? Let's try a visual approach, a hands on approach, or a memory based approach to be sure that it sinks in. Elementary skills are essential to education- with me, you can be sure that your child will not just memorize procedures, but really understand topics so they are able to excel.

As for the sciences, I am a biology major at my college. I have taken several college level biology classes, and completed higher level International Baccalaureate Biology - a rigorous, in-depth two year class. I enjoy bringing visual information in, and using illustrations to help understand topics. Try drawing mitosis or the renal system without fully understanding it! I promise, if you can draw it,
