Even though I teach Science at the college level, I always enjoy one on one interactions with high school or college level students, where I can help that person achieve the goals and successes they desire. Most people just lack the confidence, and I so enjoy watching them gain confidence and achieve what they want to.
I have a broad education with a degree in Chemistry, minor in Math, and a PhD in Biology, so I think this can help me integrate subjects for the student to both engage their interest and find a starting point of strength for them. Students generally comment they find my explanations very clear, with many real life examples, that really helps them to understand the important concepts. I actually work hard at this, to make sure to explain the subject several different ways so that the student can grasp the material well.
One of my main objectives as well is to increase the "academic muscle" of any student I help, so that they are more confident in their own abilities as they move forward, and can make real progress toward their goals.

Kathleen was awesome. Her knowledge of the material coupled with her patience, brought out a confidence in my son that I had not seen before. I highly recommend and will continue to use her services. Thank you Kathleen!
She showed me how to be confident in myself. She's very patient and will walk you through every step. Excellent tutor
Kathleen is tutoring me in biology and she does a great job with explaining a lot of the learning objectives to a certain degree where I actually understand what she's trying to say. I don't feel incompetent either and with her lessons she has great stories to go with them that gives me a clear visual.
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.
I teach Biochem at College level, is is one of my favorite things to teach! So I infuse the student with my enthusiasm to make Biochem fun.
I teach open access college freshman, no entrance requirements. I see students come in ill prepared to do college work, and have worked very hard to help them acquire the skills that will help them succeed in any career path they choose, so I have some idea of where they need to be as college freshman.
I regularly transform freshman A&P students into nursing students (one of whom just informed me she is making an A in nursing school!)
The secret ingredients are old-fashioned reading and essay writing skills, especially for this generation of student. They must train to increase their working memory, to begin to understand mastery of subject (rather than factoid memorization).
I feel I could adapt my methods very easily to any age group by using the appropriate level study materials.
Who better to prepare students for college, than a teacher who sees what is lacking in students and has demonstrated successes in helping them build study skills that will allow them to be successful in any career path?
