About Vivian

Hello Parents or Students,

My name is Vivian, a young professional with a true love for the field of medicine, and all things science. I have been tutoring for upwards of 5 years and have had the honor of seeing great success in the work of my students.

I began tutoring privately around 5 years ago and have had students of all ages, including young school children and adults returning to school or furthering their education. I have completed my undergraduate degree in Biological Sciences from Stony Brook University in NY, and the next step in my academic career will be the completion of my medical degree.

Over the years as a tutor and as a student I have adapted many skills that help my students succeed. I take the time to recognize their learning style and approach each of my students in a manner that is both engaging and effective. With tons of supplemental material or materials my students have from their own courses, I ensure they progress and we tackle any hurdles they are facing. I also help many students get ahead in classes so that they have an easier time when they each the new material.

Along with tutoring subjects like Biology, Reading, Math, Writing and more I enjoy assisting with application processes for students applying to graduate programs, college or even high school as well as Regents Preparation. The reason I enjoy this is because I take the time to get to know my students and make sure they highlight their best attributes and passions, to get to the best place they can be.

If you are interested in me as a tutor, please feel free to send me a message at any time and I will shortly get back to you. Good luck on your search for the perfect tutor!

Best,
Vivian

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.

Biology

Biology has always been, and still remains my favorite subject. Finishing up my bachelor degree in Biology, I feel I have mastered many of the introductory and advanced topics in the subject. Due to having studied the subject very thoroughly on my own, I have managed to learn not only how to study the subject but how to teach the subject to others. Biology is extremely interesting if you are being taught by someone who loves the subject. I have brought many of my students from hating to loving the subject, because most people have a tendency to love what they excel in. Throughout my own studies and tutoring biology, I have created study sheets and have a surplus of supplemental material I use with my students to help them reach their goal within the tutoring session, or master a test/class.

College Counseling

Having gone through countless admissions processes myself I have now mastered the Common App and most medical school application processes. Through my tutoring methods I discuss the interests of my students and create a list of potential schools they are willing to apply to. From that list we narrow down and divide the list into safety schools, within reach, and above reach schools. I then go over the students' extra curricular activities and essays to assist them with creating the ultimate application as well as guide them through interview processes and other parts of the college process. I have seen great success in my precious students and hope to continue to see this on WyzAnt.

Greek

I was born on a small island of Greece, Kefalonia. After moving to the states at the young age of 4, I attended greek school and was always speaking Greek at home. I am fluent in reading, writing, and speaking the language. I took the Greek Regents and received a 98. I have been an assistant teacher at a Greek-Afternoon school in the neighborhood for 4 years.

Public Speaking

After attending many leadership conferences on medicine and successfully completing many public speaking classes on my own, I am confident in the ability to teach students how to properly deliver a speech or lecture. I have received A's in all public speaking classes, and my minor in writing also involved many workshops where work was read out loud and left for open criticism or discussion. I have experience as a teacher assistant in the subject, as long as helping my peers by rehearsing and giving constructive criticism.

Regents

Nothing quite allows you to understand a student, like having gone through the same struggle yourself. As a student, I too took all regents exams including the Greek exam and scored 90+ on all taken. I have tutored students for the history, trigonometry, geometry, algebra, physics, chemistry and English Regents. I have seen a significant improvement in grades scored by my students, with the use of practice tests and thorough preparation.

Knowledgeable and posting update every session — We are very happy that we found Vivian for science tutor sessions. She is very knowledgeable on the subject matter that we needed and gives us feedback and update on Erynn's progress. It's wonderful to hear my daughter's confidence and renewed interest in science after two sessions. For that, I am very very happy to find her here as her science tutor and mentor and will continue so as needed. ...
