University of Pittsburgh (Bachelor of Science in Neuroscience)
Virginia Commonwealth University (Master's)
Hello! My name is Heather and I would love to be your tutor. Let me tell you about myself.
I have a Bachelor of Science in neuroscience from the University of Pittsburgh and a Master's degree in molecular biology and genetics from VCU. I love math and science and am certified on Wyzant to teach elementary math, algebra 1, algebra 2, biology, and chemistry. I enjoy teaching one-on-one because it allows me to give the student the time and attention they need to grasp and understand the concepts. It also puts the student in a calmer environment to really encourage the learning process without any social or peer pressure.
On a personal note, I am very friendly, I have 2 cats, and I love the outdoors! I look forward to meeting with you. Hello! My name is Heather and I would love to be your tutor. Let me tell you about myself.

Seriously quick to identify areas in which help was needed. Direct approach demonstrated Heather's preparation for the session, her confidence in the material, and herself as a tutor. Heather asked very pointed questions without seeming intimidating. My daughter was wowed by her!
I'm not often able to find someone that can explain things to me in a way that can be understood easily, but with Heather that's not a problem. My understanding of both math and chemistry have improved significantly due to her methods. She doesn't just go over the basics and then move on to something else; she continues to review each topic throughout each session.
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 a background in the biological sciences with both Bachelor's and Master degrees. My education requires Algebra and I have also taken Wyzant's qualification tests for this particular subject. I have now had multiple students in Algebra 1 so I am familiar with what current students are studying for the state tests.
I have tutored multiple high school students in Algebra 2 for classwork and for the SOL. My educational background required me to take Algebra 2 as well.
I have a background in neuroscience, molecular biology, and genetics. I have spent many years studying the workings of biological phenomena and so am very qualified to help improve study skills and performance in that area.
I have taught math at the elementary, middle, and high school level. I have an educational background in math and biological science myself.
I have tutored multiple students in Algebra. I have a background in the biological sciences which include Algebra in the curriculum.
