Texas State University (Biology)
I began tutoring in high school in a one on one setting for subjects including math and English. Once in college, I not only continued to tutor high school students but expanded to college students as well. In addition to tutoring one on one, I also led study groups of three to eight members in subjects such as biology, chemistry, trigonometry, and physics. On top of this, I also led a training course on the proper way to complete a research paper. This led to an opportunity to expand my tutoring to writing by proofreading essays and guiding essay writing with students emphasizing on proper formatting and pushing for the writer's imagination come to life on paper. In 2011, I provided tutoring and child care services for children ages 3-16 residing at a domestic violence shelter. I also had the privilege of directing the program "Gift of Giving" through a non profit organization in which I taught two week courses to 4th-6th graders about community involvement and making positive choices. Classes ranged from 20-30 students. Each course ended with the class performing a community service project together to help impact their community in a positive way. I also helped with an after school program for several years providing homework help to students ranging from first grade to eighth grade. My most recent experience was helping a 17 year old prepare to take the GED. Teaching and tutoring comes natural to me; I grew up watching my mother teach math during my childhood and loved watching her ways of getting through to her students and teaching them how to learn.
Math comes naturally to me and have many undergrad hours of math classes in which I excelled. My mom is a math teacher, and taught me methods of how to simplify complex problems where they are easy to understand. I really enjoy math and love helping others understand it as well.
I have a B.S. In Biology I received in 2008. While in college I tutored many fellow students as well as held study groups in the subject. Flow charts, diagrams, and note organization are some keys to success.
Throughout college, I tutored students in the proper way to write an essay, research papers, etc. The main focuses were grammar, proper format, flow of the essay, individual creativity, transitions, etc. I also proofread papers since high school, continuing in college and afterward.

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.
