"Hello! I'm a 4th year Biology major at U.T. Austin. I enjoy helping students learn and understand material. Grasping certain concepts and subjects can be pretty challenging for some students, and I really love working with them to overcome those hurdles. I am an effective communicator, and my goal in tutoring is to find out the exact weaknesses or holes in the student's understanding and to fill and strengthen those areas. Typically I do this by reviewing the subject thoroughly before the session and going over 1-3 problem areas during the session itself. My tutoring style utilizes examples and practice problems so that the student reaches a very thorough understanding of a topic before moving on. I like to check frequently to see if the student has any questions or apprehensions about the subject throughout the session." less...

Education and Qualifications

school: University of Texas at Austin

I'm a fourth-year Biology major at UT Austin. I have worked as a tutor at the Boys and Girls Club since January, specifically with elementary school students in areas of reading, English, and math. I am also a teaching assistant and a hired tutor at the Sanger Learning Center for UT undergraduates in math and science, so I am capable of helping older students as well. I have tutored peers for the past year, simply to help them in my spare time, in genetics, biology, and chemistry. In general, I like to think I have a positive, patient attitude about teaching! In terms of expertise and academic qualifications: I made a 4.0 in Calculus 1 at UT Austin. In high school, I scored a 5 on the Calculus AB and a 4 on the Calculus BC AP exams. I have maintained a 4.0 GPA at UT Austin in courses such as Genetics, Intro to Biology, Intro to Biochemistry, Intro to Chemistry, and Organic Chemistry. I have done research in biology and chemistry-based labs, and have a strong science background. I am a strong writer and reader. I scored a 790 on the Writing SAT, and made perfect scores on the English and Composition and English Literature AP tests. I also enjoy reading and writing in my spare time! I scored in the 100th percentile on my MCAT this past January and am therefore quite familiar with the style and format of the new MCAT.
