Hello! I am a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania with a degree in Biology. I have experience as a tutor and have also taught high school biology at a private school.
My teaching style emphasizes the comprehension of material versus memorization, through discussion, and structured study habits. I also place an emphasis on the ability to articulate one's understanding in a clear and concise form. My goal is to make biology more tangible and easy to comprehend in a relaxed and fun tutoring session.
Each tutoring session is tailored to meet my student's learning style as well as their personality. Learning is a lifelong pursuit, and I hope to inspire my students to take on their subjects, whatever they may be with the attitude that it can be accessible, no matter how difficult it may appear at first glance.

Sandra is an excellent tutor. She listens to what the student needs and teaches the work in terms that the student can understand. She has helped our daughter comprehend the subject.
We are so delighted to have found Sandra to tutor our child in Freshman Honors Biology. She is organized with the time allotted for each session but easy-going and keeps things light, responsive to our daughter's questions but structured with curriculum to keep things moving. We have seen a boost in our student's confidence and understanding of the subject and appreciate Sandra's role in this process.
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.
