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
