"I prefer to tutor using the Socratic method. I don't simply give out answers to students, I facilitate the students to let them find the answers based on what they already know by asking questions to lead them in the right direction. It does tend to take longer, but my students always remember the material better than from simply being given the answers. While I've mostly tutored upper-level students (high school and college), I love working with children and have lots of experience helping my younger relatives and friends' children with their studies in many subjects."
I recently completed graduate school with a PhD in Cell and Molecular Biology. I have published work in several scientific journals and presented my work at many conferences. During both undergrad and grad school, I held numerous tutoring and teaching jobs. Among them, I worked for a physics professor as a researcher and a lab teaching assistant from February 2008 to July 2009. I was a science tutor for the on-campus tutoring service from October 2007 to July 2009; I tutored biology, genetics, general/organic/biochemistry, physics I and II, cell/molecular biology. I tutored disabled students through the school, as well as, through the Texas Department of Rehabilitative and Assisted Services from January 2009 to July 2009. I tutored students privately one-on-one in numerous Science and early college Math courses from January 2007 to July 2009. Throughout my graduate career I worked as a Teaching Assistant for the school, primarily in Biology, while continuing work as a regular one-on-one private tutor. I really enjoy helping people from all walks of life, in all different subjects. I see it as a way for me to give back to the local community. Currently I'm still tutoring in one-on-one sessions from elementary school children to adults in my spare time.
