About Christine

Being a biology major, I am constantly studying and exercising my brain. That's ok because I love to learn new things, especially if they are anything science related. I enjoy tutoring other students because it not only helps me reinforce my knowledge but it also helps me learn how to effectively communicate my ideas and lessons with them. It helps me grow as a person and I enjoy helping boost students confidence in subjects they may be struggling in. In terms of my tutoring experience, I was a member of UNLV buddies where I worked as a volunteer tutor for elementary students at inner-risk neighborhoods. I acted as a mentor and helped the students with their reading, writing and math skills. I also was a volunteer tutor at the academic success center of my college where I helped college students with their general biology and chemistry courses.

I specifically tutor general chemistry and biology courses as well as elementary level math and science. Because I am a biology major, I have taken over 35 credits of various biology courses. Such courses included evolution, microbiology, genetics, and mammalian physiology among others. I have also taken many chemistry courses such as general chemistry, organic chemistry, biochemistry, and many more. Having taken many upper division biology and chemistry courses (with a 3.68 GPA), I believe I have a solid foundation to help my students struggling with general biology and chemistry. Also, I am patient and I listen to my students. I know that the material doesn't come easily to everyone but with persistence, I believe that they will eventually understand.

I also like to bring flashcards and other supplementary books/ supplies that may help the student in understanding the material better. I also try to make my lessons as engaging as possible. I try to make my lessons fun to keep their interest while still teaching them the necessary concepts and foundations they need to learn. I look forward to hearing from you and helping you with your studies.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Chemistry

I have experience tutoring college students in their general chemistry course at UNLV.

Genetics

I believe I am qualified to tutor genetics because I am a biology major and have taken many upper division biology courses including genetics (specifically Molecular Genetics). I also receive a B+ for the course while I was taking it. I am also currently enrolled in another genetics course in my college, The Principles of Genetics which I believe will further enhance my knowledge in this subject.

Prealgebra

Although I am a biology major and I mainly tutor biology and chemistry courses, I can also tutor pre-algebra.
