About Celeste

I had many tutors growing up, and this helped me understand what qualities I admire in a teacher. I found that I learned best when I incorporated a wide array of learning devices in my studies. My goal is to incorporate a variety of teaching styles and techniques in order to help the student retain difficult material. I don’t want to just teach the material, I want my students to develop a lifelong skill set that they can use in any setting, while simultaneously improving their grades as an outcome.

I graduated from the University of Washington with a BS in Biology. I have a passion for natural sciences and have taken a numerous biology and microbiology courses, averaging A grades in the biology field throughout my undergraduate degree. As a student I developed my own study skills throughout my academic career. I found that studying with my peers helped accelerate my learning and soon found myself tutoring many of my classmates. I designed mock worksheets and exams to test my student’s ability to understand material and urge them to try and create their own. I enjoy breaking down complex concepts into simple key points, and I’ve found that a patient approach is crucial when helping a student grasp difficult subjects. The ability to create your own study routine is a key to success.

I look forward to helping you achieve your goals!

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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.

Study Skills

As a university student, I know how daunting studying can be. I have found that the best way to teach others (and myself) is to try and study in as many ways as possible. I use a combination of word association, song writing, diagramming, color usage and repetition to help myself learn. Sometimes I will even create a mock exam to test my knowledge. I hope to apply this methodology to my pupils.
I have tutored peers of mine while I was in college. It was not a formal arrangement but I would meet up with my classmate several times in a week and we would review the material she needed to learn. I would then come up with different studying techniques she needed to focus on. I graduated from the University of Washington with a BS in Biology.

Celeste helped thoroughly review a large lab assignment, taught subject matter through the review, and then even helped edit the paper after the lesson. Young, smart and patient, Celeste will be a regular in helping our HS soph get the most from biology.
