Hi! I have a BS in Biology (summa cum laude) from Florida State University and a MS in Biology from University of Central Florida. During my MS, I taught college-level Biology I & II laboratories, mentored undergraduate students, and coordinated a high school biology summer camp. I have a passion for helping students learn the sciences, math, and writing.

I have a passion for helping students learn the sciences, math, and writing.

I specialize in tutoring biology, statistics, and algebra for college and high school students. I also offer SAT test prep, including math, reading, writing, and essay. I can provide assistance with learning Microsoft Office, Excel, and PowerPoint.

I have flexibility in my schedule, depending on the day and the week. Please let me know if I can answer any questions about my subjects or experience. I want you to succeed and look forward to the opportunity to help!

------------------------------------------
Cancellation and late policies

First, I will always put a scheduled lesson in the Wyzant calendar even if we schedule via text message. Please check there or contact me if you are unsure of whether we have a lesson scheduled.

For students when cancelling:
1 - No charge for cancellation made 6 hours or more before scheduled start time
2- 50% charge for cancellation made 1 to 6 hours before scheduled start time
3- 100% charge for cancellation made less than 1 hour before scheduled start time

*IF a student contacts me 6-1 hours before the start time of a lesson to reschedule a lesson for a new time or day, I will waive the cancellation fee IF the new lesson is scheduled, at that time, for within 48 hours of the original lesson. A cancellation fee will be assessed for any lesson cancelled less than 1 hour before scheduled start time (regardless of if we reschedule).*

For students when tardy:
If a student arrives 15 minutes or more late, even if they have notified me they will be late, I will charge for the full length of lesson scheduled, even if actual tutoring time is less [for example, if a session is scheduled for 1 hour but a student is 15 minutes late, there will be 45 minutes for the session but 1 hour will be charged].

For students if they do not show:
If a student does not show by 15 minutes after the scheduled start of the lesson, I reserve the right to leave the meeting location and charge for the lesson scheduled (at 100% rate), as if it were a cancelled lesson.

For tutor when cancelling or tardy:
1 - If I cancel a lesson with less than 1.5 hours notice, the student reserves the right to request the next lesson (of equal length) be without charge.
2- If I am late by 10 minutes or more and I have not notified you I will be late (by the scheduled start time), the lesson will be charged at a 50% rate.
3- If I do not arrive by 15 minutes after the scheduled start of the lesson (and I have not notified the student), the student is entitled to leave and may request the next lesson (of equal length) be without charge.

Statistics

I have taken AP statistics and graduate level statistics in my Master's. I have also used statistics extensively to complete my MS research thesis in biology. I have tutored college statistics. My approach is to encourage students to think about solve problems on their own first. This way, I can provide instruction and guidance but make sure that they student is identifying the methods to use to get to a solution on their own.

Patient and helpful

Tiffani is a wonderful tutor! She created some really helpful summary sheets for me to use as guidlines for my homework problems. She is also willing to work through problems in a step by step manner.

Carley, 3 lessons with Tiffani
Tutor responded:

Thank you, Carley!

Knowledgeable, patient and good teacher

Directly from our daughter: "Smart, knows what she's talking about. She comes really prepared (asked for sample homework and had all prepared by the time she came home) and she's patient. I learnt a lot about Math." The proof is in the pudding: our daughter went from having a 56 in Algebra, to a 93 after the retest.

Rachel, 2 lessons with Tiffani
Tutor responded:

Thanks, Rachel!

Awesome tutor!

Very organized, skilled and prepared. She helped simplify processes that seemed abstract and helped me find a way to interpret what my professor was asking. This is excellent because her way of explaining helped reel in my wandering mind by keeping me focused on simple steps and key terms.

Thank you, Jennifer!

SAT prep

Tiffani is an excellent tutor. She helped my son preparing for the SAT test that is coming up in a few weeks. She is knowledgeable, on time and patient. I would highly recommend Tiffani if your kids need help.

Thank you, Quyen!

Awesome tutor

Tiffani is a great tutor. In college algebra, Tiffani not only taught me how to complete the problems but the reasoning behind why it is solved that way, which is a big help in math.

Kyle, 8 lessons with Tiffani

knowledgeable, patient, and nice tutor

Tiffani did an excellent job tutoring me in biology! Tiffani was very well educated on all the biology concepts i needed to know this semester and took the time to explain them is a simple, clear, and understandable manner. She made sure I was following along with her and knew what she was explaining. She would even asks me questions and make me recite the information back to her to make sure I knew it, which i found extremely helpful. She also helped me write a few bio papers this semester. Overall, Tiffani is an amazing biology tutor and I highly recommend her!

Thank you, Precious! I'm glad to work with your daughter on her math and science.

Excellent Algebra I Lesson

The lesson was excellent, he said he was a little frustrated at first, but he was able to understand it and wants to meet a least once a week. I will get with Tiffani, to schedule another lesson for next week.

Carlean, 2 lessons with Tiffani
Tutor responded:

Thank you, Carlean! Glad that the lesson helped him.

Knowledgable and patient tutor

Adjust to your learning and really helps you understand the content in different words. Also, very patient with you while you try to understand the content. Willing to go back and review, if you dont understand.
