About Taylor

While enrolled as a full-time student and volunteer researcher at University of Oregon I tutored students in biochemistry, general chemistry, organic chemistry, physics, and introductory biology for 3 years. Even during the summers when the demand wasn't high I would review material just for one or two students to ensure my competence while tutoring them. As an undergraduate my aim was to make associates between my courses and doing so I was able to share them with my students to better understand a subject by comparison to another. During the three years I learned how to teach all of the different problem solving methods ranging from algorithms to graphic representations. The needs of each student varies and I have learned how to accommodate a very diverse student body during my undergraduate years. Now during my gap year off working as a volunteer researcher I intend to teach to make the academic community a more inclusive and successful environment.

Despite my focus on the natural sciences at University of Oregon I'd like to consider myself interdisciplinary with an overall goal of helping the under-served communities in Portland.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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.

Organic Chemistry

I have tutored this subject, organic chemistry, for over 2 years. Over the 2 years there have many different professors in which I had to adapt for different subject material and also on occasion directly contact the professor to correct their lecture materials. My lowest grade in organic chemistry was a B+ the first term and after that I continued to score in the top 5 in the class; after a year of organic chemistry I took advanced graduate level chemistry and received an A and physical organic chemistry and received an A minus. On the MCAT I scored the highest score possible in the chemistry section.
