About Kalvin


Bio

Hi, I'm Kalvin, I am a senior in Microbio and Immunology, and Biotech double majors, with a minor in Spanish at UNR. I am currently working as a chemistry teaching assistant and undergraduate researcher for my university. I also have extensive experience tutoring nursing and med-school level microbiology. I love helping students catch up to their peers, develop a greater sense of personal and academic confidence, and get ahead in their classes.

Hi, I'm Kalvin, I am a senior in Microbio and Immunology, and Biotech double majors, with a minor in Spanish at UNR. I am currently working as a chemistry teaching assistant and undergraduate researcher for my university. I also have extensive experience tutoring nursing and med-school level microbiology. I love helping students catch up to their peers, develop a greater sense of personal and academic confidence, and get ahead in their classes.

During high school, I was in the biomed program and an AP student, and have a strong foundation in that field. I previously worked at UNR as a chemistry tutor and made weekly lesson plans for that position. Please see my subject-specific qualifications for more information. Yo puedo hablar y enseñar español también.

I have helped family members in elementary and middle school grade subjects, as well as privately tutored various course work during the summers. For this reason, I am quite experienced in most K-12 level math and science.

I assist with academic coursework but can also help you develop better studying strategies that carry over into other classes. I can assess your learning style and needs, and teach you how to make the most of your work time. During our first few sessions, I will gauge your understanding and difficulties so that we can set goals together to work off of in our subsequent sessions.

Feel free to reach out any time of day! I am happy to discuss your academic needs to help you decide whether or not I would be the best tutor for you. The most important thing is that you find someone who accommodates your learning style, and has the experience and knowledge in your fields. If you have questions about what classes I have taken or what I feel comfortable tutoring specifically, I'm happy to talk to you. :)
