"I have a passion for explaining math in a way that is easy to understand. I have been tutoring middle school, high school, and college math and science for about 4 years. I have a background in biomedical engineering but am currently teaching high school math and physics. I obtained my minor in chemistry in 2020 and have been tutoring chemistry for about one year. When tutoring I aim to not only strengthen math and science skills but to build confidence as well, helping students to succeed long after tutoring.

I have a background in SolidWorks, including holding tutoring sessions for SolidWorks prep. The knowledge I have gained through college coursework has given me the skill set to tutor math, chemistry, physics, and biology. My teaching experience gives me the ability to be an exceptional tutor.

I have been teaching precalculus, calculus, chemistry, biology, and AP physics for 3 years. I’ve been tutoring ACT prep for about 4 years now.

I have experience tutoring pre-Algebra, Algebra 1, Geometry, Algebra 2, College Algebra, Pre-Calculus, calculus, ACT prep, physics, chemistry, biology (with the exception of plants and taxonomy). I have tutored students in need of help with writing and have experience in helping students with learning disabilities.

As someone with ADHD and someone with a family member with autism, I understand that every person learns differently, and some students with learning disabilities require certain modifications to my teaching. For example, autistic students don't like to look people in the eyes. In fact, they will prefer that I look away from them. During my session with such students, I will avoid eye contact with them to make them feel more comfortable while learning the subject they're struggling with.

I have a major in biomedical engineering from UAB, a minor in math, and chemistry. I am one class away from obtaining my minor in biology. I got a 33 composite on my ACT with a 33 in English and reading, a 35 in math, and a 30 in science. I know a few tricks!" less...
