Bio

I graduated with a bachelor's degree in history but decided I wanted to go to graduate school for physical therapy. So a few years after graduating I went back to school to fulfill the prerequisite coursework required to apply schools. Going back to school was rewarding because although many of the classes were challenging I did well because my undergraduate courses taught me good study habits.

I graduated with a bachelor's degree in history but decided I wanted to go to graduate school for physical therapy. So a few years after graduating I went back to school to fulfill the prerequisite coursework required to apply schools. Going back to school was rewarding because although many of the classes were challenging I did well because my undergraduate courses taught me good study habits. I rarely studied in groups in my history classes I began studying with a small group in some of the science based classes and found helping my classmates to improve their scores to be extremely rewarding.

Last semester I was hired to tutor Anatomy and Physiology, at my college, one of my favorite subjects, but I ended up helping people learn more in the other sciences and mathematics including precalculus, physics, chemistry to name a few. I have taken and done well in all of my mathematics and science courses (with a 4.0 GPA in these courses) and am confident in my ability to teach others in these subjects with knowledge of problem solving as well as mnemonics to aid students when memorization is necessary. My knowledge of mathematics with sciences allows me to adapt to a students needs be it a short study preparation for a test or a more in depth session on a particular topic or set of topics. Also if necessary I have helped students figure out what they know and don't know so they can focus on learning what they need to while avoiding wasting time studying material in which they already have a strong foundation. I have experience tutoring college and high school students. I am currently applying to schools and preparing to take the GRE while working another job.

I have a good foundational understanding of mathematics at this level which allows me to see how there are multiple ways to approach a problem, this allows me to show a student alternate approaches to a problem which can help it click better. My experience with physics classes helps me to show variables as an equation and understand real world applications where mathematics can be applied.

Chemistry is math with letters as my teacher put it, much of it is simply algebra so by breaking the problems into smaller portions and helping students understand dimensional analysis I can help others do well in chemistry.

I am better at teaching to the mathematical based section of the GRE versus the verbal section but have some useful tips on how to approach the verbal section and tools to use to help improve a student's vocabulary.
