When you're a high school or college student, it seems like information is being shoved in your brain day in and day out. It's easy to become apathetic, overwhelmed, or fatigued by a seemingly endless sea of concepts, skills, and knowledge. Most semesters, students have their hands full just trying to keep their GPA afloat, let alone actually learning class material. I know because I've been there.
My tutoring philosophy is simple: teach simply and so that students will find the material relevant. When I reflect upon my own experiences as both a student and a tutor, I realize that the best teachers I've had in my life did two things. First, they avoided excess, unnecessary information when presenting new information- they kept it simple. Second, they made it a point to make in-class material applicable to my life. In their classrooms, learning was challenging, but rewarding. As a result, I worked harder and my grades improved dramatically.
From Algebra to Biology to English, my goal is to provide students with the tools and opportunities they need to not only excel in their classes, but to master the material as well. To make this happen, I promise keep things simple and relevant.
From physics to chemistry, I've had years of experience with algebra beyond my algebra 1 class. I know how to setup and solve complex equations across a variety of applicable situations.
As a Health Science student, my coursework has almost entirely consisted of classes across both biology and chemistry. Not only have I performed well in my classes academically, but I have developed a love and respect for the subjects that extends beyond the classroom. Additionally, I have had the opportunity to TA for an intro level biology class, which has further strengthened my mastery of biological concepts.
Throughout high school, reading and writing were my personal specialties. In addition to performing well on my AP English and Literature tests, I consistently scored high on both the ACT English and Reading sections. In fact, I secretly enjoyed taking the reading sections of the ACT. As a college student, I continue to receive high marks on written assignments and excel in classes that require heavy loads of reading.
School doesn't have to be a drag. When approached from the right angle and with the right amount of planning, it can be both rewarding and enriching. As a current senior preparing to finish up at Brigham Young University, I understand what works and what doesn't.
I'm usually available from 9:00 am to 2:30 pm, but my schedule is super flexible. If you need to set something up for a different time, feel free to contact me and I'll be sure to fit you in!

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.
