About Valerie

I am a graduate from South Carolina State University with dual B.S. degrees in Chemistry and Biology. I also have a MBA degree. I love to tutor/teach especially subjects involving numbers. Hence Algebra, Calculus, Accounting are a few of my favorites. Other subjects I am particularly passionate about are Biology, Anatomy, and Physiology. I have worked as a tutor for K-12 students, including AP coursework. Also, I have worked as a teaching assistant for general chemistry and biochemistry classes. I earned no less than a B in the following courses with most being As: Pre-Algebra, Pre-Calculus, Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Trigonometry, Calculus I, Calculus II, Accounting, Differential Equations, Zoology, Botany, Anatomy & Physiology, and Microbiology. Although I was a Chemistry/Biology major, I took Accounting in undergraduate because I believe everyone should know certain skills for success in life and I earned an A!

While I tutored for an independent company for grades K-12, students were able to better understand skills in Reading, Algebra, Calculus and Trigonometry. I also, tutored students while I attended college in General Chemistry, Biochemistry, Organics, Microbiology, and Biological Sciences. What you would learn from my tutelage are basic study skills that will apply to any course you take throughout your learning life. Great study skills will take you very far in life because you master concepts instead of memorizing. I love science and live for it! I have a unique approach to understanding and mastering the biological processes that will remain a strong skill throughout life. You will learn short-cuts and mnemonics to apply to biological processes. Additionally, I can teach you tips and tricks on how to break apart word problems to make them simple. You will also learn basic concepts in mathematics to solving equations and then applying the equation.

A little about me... I am a fun and positive individual who is diverse in many areas. Some of my hobbies include trail hiking/walking, mountain climbing, dancing, singing, and reading novels. I am very tenacious and if I do not know the answer to a question, I will most definitely have an answer within hours ~ learning is one of my favorite pastimes! Please feel free to contact me if you believe my profile to be what you desire. If the effort is put forth on both sides, you will receive your best grade under my tutelage. And best believe I will put forth every effort to making you successful during the learning process. Thank you and I look forward to hearing from you soon!
