About Tyler

I am a professional tutor with several years of experience working with at-risk students both in a college setting and privately. I started in my undergrad tutoring other students in private sessions. Many of my fellow students felt more comfortable with someone from their cohort, as professional services can seem intimidating to someone struggling to understand complicated material. The college's own Tutoring center heard of my business, and reached out to me as I was decreasing their utilization by taking their clients.

In my time with Dowling College, I was responsible for organizing peer-to-peer study groups as well as coordinating with professors to successfully tutor their curriculum. I primarily tutored in the chemical sciences which made me a math tutor with some window dressing; I also occasionally tutored college-level writing. I have tried to maintain the personal feeling of being tutored by someone who is a classmate into my professional role.

I also began work with a student support program in my undergrad, serving as a summer entrance program mentor for incoming students. The program served at-risk students who had financial and academic difficulties in attending higher education. My position entailed attending summer program classes with students and helping them grasp the material so they could successfully integrate into a college environment upon the start of their undergraduate studies. The program's retention rate was miles above the rate for the general population.

I currently work in early education. I work with little ones and get them excited about science.

I have a deep love for the sciences. I feel that biology and chemistry intersect in such a beautiful way, and I make every attempt to convey the amazing synchronicity between the two fields to my students. My abiding passion is for evolution and ecology, but the chemical sciences and earth sciences have such complex interwoven systems that they are equally fascinating. I have a passion for helping students succeed, and beyond that I want them to love the subjects. My clients have often remarked that not only have I given them the leg up they needed to succeed, but that I have made the topics interesting for them when previously they only viewed it as a class they needed to pass.

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.

Botany

I have tutored biological sciences for several years since the start of my undergrad. I would begin tutoring a new subject as soon as I took one in completing my degree. In my botany class I received an A+ and was tutoring other students while still enrolled in it. I can connect you with the professor who taught the class if you wish to contact him for confirmation.

Genetics

I have tutored biological sciences for several years since the start of my undergrad. I would begin tutoring a new subject as soon as I took one in completing my degree. In my genetics class I received an A and was tutoring other students while still enrolled in it.
