About Holly


Bio

I am a current college student studying editing and publishing with a minor in microbiology. I love learning about a wide variety of subjects, and I enjoy taking difficult or complex subjects and figuring out how to share them in a way that makes the most sense. There is nothing quite as satisfying as the "aha!" moment when something clicks in a student's head. I want to share my love of learning with others and use my skills to help them succeed.

I am a current college student studying editing and publishing with a minor in microbiology. I love learning about a wide variety of subjects, and I enjoy taking difficult or complex subjects and figuring out how to share them in a way that makes the most sense. There is nothing quite as satisfying as the "aha!" moment when something clicks in a student's head. I want to share my love of learning with others and use my skills to help them succeed.

I have been tutoring for about a year and have worked with students ranging from 6 to 16. I'm open to tutoring other ages as well. I have found that as a tutor, I value personalization and patience. I want my students to not only know the material, but have confidence in their own abilities.

I have done very well academically. I scored a 36 on the ACT and 1560 on the SAT. Additionally, I am a National Merit Scholar and was nominated as a U.S. Presidential scholar. I am eager to help others excel in standardized testing, as I know it is something many struggle with.

I am particularly experienced in English, having worked as a writer and editor. I have experience in many types of writing, including academic, creative writing, speech writing, and journalism.

I would love to help you learn and feel more confident in your studies! If you would like to schedule a lesson, please contact me and I will reply promptly.

I have competed in a number of speech competitions, several of which I won. I competed in the Freedom Festival Speech Competition, which is a state-wide speech competition for high school students. I was a finalist all four times I competed. In 2018, I placed first and was the featured speaker at a 3,000+ attendee event. I also competed in the Mary Kawakami Speech Competition three times and was a finalist each time. In 2017, I placed first. I have also been a featured speaker at numerous events.
