I am in my 5th year of a PhD program in neuroscience in New York City and I have several years of tutoring experience under my belt. In college, I double-majored in chemistry and biochemistry and have always found science to be intuitive. Although this is my first time as a Wyzant tutor, I've previously tutored middle school, high school, and college students in math and science courses with great success. In graduate school, I was a teaching assistant for a graduate-level introductory neuroscience course.

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.
