About Payton

I'm a Junior at Texas Tech University. So I know what it's like to cram, to study, to wonder if this math problem should even exist. I am a Plant Soil Science major who has great tricks for memorizing information. Memorizing is necessary, but being able to understand the material that is given to you is also important. Luckily I can help you with both. I made it through most of my science courses and histories with B. I can help with test anxiety and breaking bad study habits.

When it comes to science, this is my strong point. I can help you find fun ways to memorize and understand the material. We would go over vocabulary first, then proceed to understanding concepts and functions. I can walk you step by step through the Krebbs cycle, mitosis, and everything else. If you have a specific book that your professor gave you, I can see about making worksheets and activities. We can do anything from fill in the blank flash cards to making up catchy phrases.

What's important for history is to know the who, what, when, where, why, and significance. This is the key structure for essays and short answer questions. If you need help memorizing facts, I can help. I can help you with annotating your books.

All in all I chose subjects that I am strong in. If you come to me with your struggles or problems. I will do my absolute best to help you understand and get through what you need to. Tell me your weak points and I'll help you make them your strong points. I know what its like to ask a question to a professor, then feel like he didn't really answer your question at all. I have the time and patience to help you understand any material. Communication is important when tutoring so if you ask a question I'll make sure I understand your question before I answer.

Botany

My major currently is plant soil science. I want to achieve a Master's in plant pathology. I have taken many soil, biology, and horticulture classes involving plant structures functions. Entomology Taugh me how insects act as vectors to harm plants. My average grades in my major are a B. I feel confident that I could help students with botany.

Needlework

I'm terrific at embroidery. Cross stitching is a passion of mine. I also love silk embroidery and learning new stitches. I would love to teach others. This is a passion of mine and I strongly support anyone willing to learn. I can provide needles, fabric to practice on, ribbons etc.

Sewing

I've completed many projects. I have always helped my friends and family with their projects. Sewing is something I started as a kid. I love to quilt, make pillows, and blankets. There's many different ways to turn old fabrics into something beautiful.
