Carnegie Mellon University (Biological Sciences)
I believe that my educational background as a Carnegie Mellon University senior makes me an ideal tutor. As an undergraduate, I have held many leadership positions in different organizations that require effective communication skills. These positions have allowed me to develop the inter-personal skills that make me an effective tutor especially for challenging material.
Before matriculating to Carnegie Mellon University, I graduated salutatorian from high school with a 4.2 grade point average while taking a breadth of college preparatory classes including but not limited to biology, calculus, English, physiology, anatomy, and so forth.
As a student at CMU, my primary area of study is within the biological sciences. Because of the common core of education, I have also completed coursework in physics, psychology, calculus, statistics, English, as well as various other pre-health coursework. I have earned an A in biology, advanced physiology, biochemistry, and many of my biological sciences coursework.
My goal is to pursue a career in medicine after I graduate in May of 2016. Currently, I am applying to graduate school for the Fall 2016 term. I have a solid history tutoring as I have spent time tutoring high school students from a local Pittsburgh high school in the areas of physics and biology. My specific tutoring approach involves assisting the students in the critical thinking needed for continuing education. By having the students explain why and how they received their specific answers, I am able to pinpoint exactly where they are having issues, while also teaching them how to effectively communicate their ideas.
I also work in a chemistry laboratory at the University of Pittsburgh performing research in order to synthesize iron complexes in order to treat acute cyanide toxicity. I am free quite often and willing to drive to different neighborhoods in the Pittsburgh area. Feel me to contact me for more information or to schedule a session.

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.
