About Sandra

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.

I really enjoy teaching as I feel it is a great way to help inspire kids to learn and be challenged, and it is a wonderfully rewarding job!
