About Blessing


Bio

I earned my undergraduate degree in Molecular Biology (with a certificate in Neuroscience) at Princeton University. As an AP Scholar with Distinction, I received the scores of 5 (on the Biology, AB Calculus, Latin, and English language tests) and 4 (on World History and English literature tests) in high school. On the SATs, I scored in the 99th percentile for Critical Reading and in the 97th percentile for Math.

I earned my undergraduate degree in Molecular Biology (with a certificate in Neuroscience) at Princeton University. As an AP Scholar with Distinction, I received the scores of 5 (on the Biology, AB Calculus, Latin, and English language tests) and 4 (on World History and English literature tests) in high school. On the SATs, I scored in the 99th percentile for Critical Reading and in the 97th percentile for Math.

My first experience with tutoring was in fifth grade, when my sister patiently helped me understand the difference between direct and indirect objects. My goal is to do for my students what my sister did for me, so that they can have many AHA moments of their own.

I have had the pleasure of tutoring and mentoring elementary and high school students since I was a junior in high school. I have tutored students in subjects as diverse as Latin, English, Mathematics, and Biology. I specialize in SAT and Advanced Placement examination preparations, as well as in general subject/homework help.

My general approach to tutoring has been to have the student teach me the subject first. This accomplishes two main goals: 1) explaining a topic to another person helps a student remember the details better, while boosting the student's confidence, and 2) the process allows me to assess the gaps in the student's knowledge of the subject matter. My approach is adjusted to fit the needs of each of my students.

excellent tutor

After meeting Blessing we think she will be a great benefit to our girls. She is patient and our daughters really like her. She is very good at providing feedback and summary reviews that help prepare the kids for the following lessons

Darnelle, 1 lesson with Blessing

A good fit

Blessing took the time needed to assess my daughter's needs in the subjects being tutored. She set out a plan for upcoming tutoring sessions that will allow for my daughter to get the most out of them. Blessing was patient and communicated with my daughter in a way that allowed my daughter to understand the subject matter. This was the first session but I already feel it was beneficial.
