Hello! I'm Jessica and I'm currently a college student pursuing my Bachelor's degree in Biology. Although I am a novice tutor, my future career goal is to become a college educator as I feel very passionate about student learning and education in general! During my past and current studies, the classes I got the most out of (both science and non-science) were ones where the professor really engaged with the students, challenging them not to just "memorize the material", but actually apply critical thinking to different questions and apply their knowledge. These same professors were also readily available by office hours or email and welcomed questions or concerns. I want to be able to do the same with my students and have them feel the same satisfaction when they understand concepts past the textbook definition.

For the past year, I have been an instructor assistant in the Biology department at my university. Instructor assistants help out in the lab sections of different biology labs, assisting the professor with experiments and helping students when they have questions. I have assisted in the general biology lab and genetics lab. In the fall I will once again be an instructor assistant in the genetics lab as well as doing research with my mentor, who specializes in developmental biology. The lab sections are usually about 16 students where we meet weekly for about 3-4 hours, depending on the length of the experiment. I encourage students to meet with me outside of class if they have questions, and a few have taken the opportunity, allowing me to strengthen my 1-on-1 tutoring skills.

I want to benefit the students as much as possible, so any suggestions or resources are much appreciated! I feel tutoring is a two-way road, not only does the student learn something, but the tutor does as well. I will respond quickly and efficiently and look forward to helping others! Please contact me to schedule a lesson or any other questions you may have. Thank you!
