Brigham Young University (Microbiology)
Hey! Just a little bit about me: At this point in my life I am a Pre-Physician Assistant student at Brigham Young University and am in hot pursuit of a Bachelor's degree in Microbiology with a Minor in Chemistry. Back home in Florida, while in high school, I had some pretty sweet opportunities to tutor many of my peers in an array of subjects. I found that not only did I enjoy teaching for my own personal development and learning but I also found great satisfaction in knowing that I made someone's life just a little bit easier just by helping them gain a greater understanding for a topic. I myself struggled in Chemistry in high school and hit a low point for a bit where my other grades took a hit as well, so I understand just how important it is for students to believe in themselves and have a positive outlook on their education. I love helping those around me and I believe that everyone deserves the most out of their education--- no one can take what you know away from you. I hope to help you see your potential and to overcome those challenges that stand in your way of understanding the world around you.
While in high school I undertook a number of AP classes and when it came time for exams I had no issue scoring high marks. I am familiar with a number a subjects, science being my main specialty. Being a Microbiology major (with chemistry) I tend to focus more on the life sciences but I am also proficient in math and English. Currently I am a Teaching Assistant/Mentor for a student development class at BYU where we teach study techniques as well as skills to be a better/faster reader so I can help in that department too.
I have had a solid grasp on math since middle school and throughout high school I was in advanced math classes all the way up through AP Calculus. During that time I was in a math club where we got to spend a bit of time each semester tutoring others in math. Since then, I have only taken Statistics in college but I continue to use algebra and some calculus concepts in my science classes so I am proficient in those skills.
I have a unique love for science where it is literally a part of who I am (Ha!) and I just about eat, breath, and sleep it. In high school I was a part of a Medical lab assistant program where we learned about health science and became Certified Phlebotomists, I also took AP Chemistry and AP Biology as well as earned a near perfect score on the Biology SAT. Now in college, science is what I do. I am starting my 3rd year and have covered Molecular Biology, Microbiology, the hands on labs, Anatomy with cadaver lab, Bio-Organic Chemistry, Gen Chem 1 and 2 with lab, and general biology.
If you need any assistance with any subject that sounds like it might be something I can help you navigate, please contact me! If you would like to get to know me better or want to schedule a lesson, do the same and help me, help you. I am excited to learn together! Hey!

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.
I have been interested in anatomy since middle school and have been involved in medical academies/programs that have had emphasis on the human body for a while now. By the time I started college I had a pretty good grasp and started my first semester with the beast of a class that was Human Anatomy with Cadaver Lab. In lab, my grasp of the subject shone brightly as I was almost always the one that was surrounded by a group of students and pointing out the parts that made up whatever system we were focusing on. I also made sure to include why those parts were important, what they did, and how lab was tying in with our lecture portion of the class. Outside of class, I often lead study groups with diagrams on what boards or models and helped clarify and review the lecture topics
I took AP Chemistry in high school and am now on my way to receiving a minor in Chemistry at BYU. I have taken Intro to Bio-Organic Chemistry and General Chemistry 1 and 2 with Lab. All the while I have been tutoring my peers in this subject as a lot of people tend to struggle with it, but once they understand a whole new world is opened to them. In high school I helped tutor underclassmen that were taking AP Chem after I did on a weekly basis. In college, one particular tutoring moment was with my roommate who was also taking the bio-organic class i was and was struggling; everyday after class we would sit and do the homework together and I would walk her through the topics we went over in class but that went over her head, and would make my own practice problems for her to work through. I also helped her understand how to utilize the text book and get the most out of each reading to have a better grasp on what we were doing; a lot of the reading tended to go above and beyond and it was sometimes difficult to pull important information.
