THE UNIVERSITY OF TEXAS AT AUSTIN (Biology)
If you have ever struggled to learn new concepts in the classroom or spent hours studying only to find out that you failed the exam, then trust me when I say that I completely understand. As a student, I disliked school. I didn't like sitting in class listening to lectures, and I hated studying alone. I oftentimes felt that the effort I put in was not reflected in the grades that I received. It wasn't until I became a teacher that I learned how to become a better student.
For over two years, I have taught hundreds of students SAT, ACT, TOEFL, and IELTS strategies. I have worked with two well-known test prep companies both in Texas and abroad as a teacher in the Middle East. I have an extremely high success rate for helping students achieve their goals if they are willing to put in the work to make it happen.
I have a Bachelor of Science in Biology, so I have taken a substantial amount of coursework in the sciences as well as math. After graduating college, I taught in Beaumont, Texas as an SAT instructor. I then moved back to Houston, Texas where I continued to do seminars and proctor several SAT exams. Later on, I moved to Doha, Qatar in the Middle East where I worked full time as a test prep instructor teaching PSAT, SAT, SAT II Biology and Chemistry, ACT, TOEFL, and IELTS. I've taught private as well as group classes, and I like to be as interactive as possible with my students. That's how I know there is an understanding of the material as we review it.
I assign a large amount of homework, but it is only to ensure that we make the most of our time together. I want for you to see improvements, but you have to be willing to prove your competency of the material by completing your homework on your own; however, do not feel overwhelmed by this as I will go over questions that you may have had from any assignment. As we work together, I will be able to gauge what changes need to be made to my own curriculum in order to meet your needs. I have a tremendous amount of material and knowledge in order to help you progress. Your starting score is not as important as the effort you are willing to put in to achieve your goal.
I have a 24 hour cancellation policy, but we can also set up a makeup class if you need to cancel. I am willing to meet at a nearby library to provide services.
I really hope to hear from you soon! If you have ever struggled to learn new concepts in the classroom or spent hours studying only to find out that you failed the exam, then trust me when I say that I completely understand.

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.
