Hello! I'm Olivia and I am a senior majoring in Biochemistry and German Language and Culture at University of Houston.

I have a variety of interests and I especially love learning and teaching. I enjoy working with students of all different ages and academic levels. I have experience tutoring algebra, algebra II, precalculus, geometry and calculus to middle and high school students. I have also tutored German students at the high school and university level as well as chemistry, organic chemistry, and biochemistry at the university level. My approach to tutoring differs based on the student and how they learn best. Generally, I will ask a series of questions to asses the strengths and weaknesses of a particular student in a subject matter, then I will talk them through how to solve the problem and after going through examples together, I will see if the student understands the material as they do some examples on their own while I observe and am there for when they have questions. In order to offer the best assistance, I make sure my lessons are individualized and I frequently ensure the student is grasping the desired content. I know from my own studies that the quality of the instructor has a major impact on the desire and ability of the student to learn and understand and so I try to make my tutoring sessions as engaging and interesting as possible and deliver clear, quality instruction.

Other subjects I feel comfortable tutoring include English, Multivariable Calculus, Linear Algebra, Differential Equations, Biology, Genetics, Nucleic Acids, Cellular Biology, Physics (including Calculus based Physics), elementary/middle school science and math, SAT math. I have received an A in every subject I have listed and I earned a 1560/1600 on the SAT with a perfect math score.

I am very flexible especially if parents or students have specific suggestions for what they want me to go over or resources they want me to use. Feel free to contact me at anytime to set up a tutoring session and I will get back to you

I have tutored students in German from the high school to university level. I am currently the German tutor for the Modern and Classical Languages Department at the University of Houston. I am a non-native German speaker and I have studied German for 9 years. I have been fortunate enough to have truly incredible German teachers and professors and therefore have many ideas for engaging and effective lessons plans for German. I am incredibly passionate about language learning and I would absolutely love to work with you or your child to help you learn German.

I am a Biochemistry major but I have always been interested in math and as a result have taken a lot of math courses out of interest. I have experience tutoring high school and middle school students in a variety of topics in mathematics. I have taken Algebra, Algebra II, Geometry, Pre-calculus, Trigonometry, BC Calculus (Calculus I and Calculus II), Multivariable Calculus (sometimes called Calculus III), Linear Algebra (also called Engineering Math), Differential Equations, and Statistics and Probability. I have a very good understanding of mathematical concepts from the lowest level of math to higher levels. I would love to work with you or your student to help make math easier!

Biology

I am in my last year of my biochemistry major at the University of Houston. I have taken numerous courses in Biology including Intro to Bio, Genetics, Nucleic Acids, Biochemistry, Cell Biology, Cell Biochemistry, and a course on the Galapagos Islands. I received an A in all of these courses. I have also tutored university students in Biochemistry, Biology, Chemistry, and Organic Chemistry for 3 years. I have also been part of three biology research projects going on at the Galapagos Science Center. If you want a biology tutor with insight into how your student can achieve their science related goals nowadays, I'm the tutor for you! Or if your students generally lacks interest in science or has difficulty with biology, I have the experience to help.
