About Geralynn

Math, science, and standardized exams such as the PSAT, SAT, ACT, & MCAT are all areas that cause increased anxiety for the struggling student. Whether the problem is an information deficit, anxiety, test-taking skills, or a combination of some or all of the above, an initial assessment of the student allows me to create an individualized tutoring program that overcomes the areas of deficit and enhance his or her strengths.

With math and reading being the bread and butter of the majority of these exams, a solid understanding of the basic fundamentals of these areas equates to higher grades and test scores. As one prepares for college and graduate schools, the need for a solid foundation in the sciences and standardized test taking skills take on an equal amount of importance.

Course work completed during my undergraduate and medical school training, such as- biology, chemistry, biochemistry, anatomy, physiology, microbiology, immunology, genetics, statistics, algebra, & calculus, equips me with the knowledge base to assist you or your child fill in the information gaps that may be preventing him or her from getting the score he or she deserves. Equally, the number of years that I have tutored have strengthened by ability to fulfill that objective by being able to efficiency assess the areas of weakness & develop individualized study plans for improvement. I have worked as an algebra, biology, and graduation proficiency exam tutor for the Memphis City Schools system for a year. On the collegiate level, I have worked for three years as a pre-algebra, algebra, calculus, biology, anatomy & physiology, and chemistry tutor for the University of Memphis. I also have had over 15 years of experience working with students to achieve competitive scores on PSAT, SSAT, ACT, SAT as a private tutor.
