About Kaltuma


Bio

I am an AVID reader. Books- fiction, non-fiction, sci-fi, anything really- allow me to enter another world. I get attached to characters and feel very sad when I am entering the last quarter of the book. I also LOVE to travel. Again, it must be that I am fascinated by places, people, and things that aren't familiar ie: the idea of entering or being in what seems like another world!

I am an AVID reader. Books- fiction, non-fiction, sci-fi, anything really- allow me to enter another world. I get attached to characters and feel very sad when I am entering the last quarter of the book. I also LOVE to travel. Again, it must be that I am fascinated by places, people, and things that aren't familiar ie: the idea of entering or being in what seems like another world!

In college, I was a part of many STEM programs (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematician). As an Ambassador I was able to tutor other college students in college courses that I have already completed and was successful at. As an undergraduate biology researcher at PSU, I've worked alongside graduate students and carried virus research. This allowed me to learn ways to teach students. I was a mentor for various programs at PSU including International Students, LSAMP programs.

I am a college graduate at Portland State University. I studied Biology and will be doing a Post-bac in Psychology. My goals are to enter a PhD to become a professor and carry clinical research in Behavioral Neuroscience. I am very well versed in the hard sciences, social sciences, English, and History. I am very conscious person both academically and socially. I enjoy being around kids, as the oldest of eight I've always been around kids and find conversations with them fascinating.

As a refugee, I grew up with my Dad who did not speak English or ever any formal schooling. As a child, I learned to teach my self concepts and technical information. This has allowed me to become my own teacher and really find techniques that work to teach myself. I believe that as a tutor, I should not assume what a student may or may not know. I find it very significant to go over ideas, concepts, etc. over and over again until the student is confident in the information.
