Bio/ Chem tutor
Bio/ Chem tutor
Hi my name is Brian B. and I am a biochem student at Muhlenberg College. In addition to tutoring I am a work study in the bio department, an avid runner, as well as outdoorsman. As A tutor I like to remind myself that I am still a student. Which means I am constantly developing more efficient methods of teaching through my own learning.
At Muhlenberg College, I worked as a student tutor through the academic resource center where I met with my tutees each week to go over difficult concepts covered in class and helped to put the information into a format that was more appropriate to their learning style. In addition to this, I helped improve their lab skills through refinement of technique and editing of lab reports.
Last year I was also hired as a Learning Assistant for the bio150 class through the academic resource center. In this position, I was responsible for holding bi weekly workshops in which I curated study material in conjunction with the professor to best prepare the students for exams.
Overall chemistry and Bio may seem like daunting tasks initially, with the mountains of information that you are tasked to memorize, but by getting a better grasp on the key concepts and core themes of the topics, one can approach the material with much more confidence. This is an ability/confidence that I instill in my tutees has been a hallmark in their success. Above all, I want to make tutoring sessions fun and engaging. Building upon that natural curiosity of science is going to be the root of progress. I a very flexible with timing and can help in AP Chem or AP Bio test preparation as well, in addition to intro CHEM and BIO.
