Biology/Science Tutor with degree in Bio Sci (Medical Microbiology) and 4 years of Tutoring Experience

Methodology

As a tutor, most of my students approach me with work they need to complete. That said, I do not believe in completing their work for them, but rather using similar examples to help them understand the steps they need to take in order to reach the correct answers. This allows for the student to retain the techniques necessary to complete exam questions as well. I am very aware of the fact that my students have different learning styles, and as such, I cater to students who are visual learners, kinetic learners, or students who thrive using memorization techniques.

Background

Science is my forte! I have been tutoring on and off throughout my academic career. I have also formally taught mathematics for students in the third grade (groups of 10+ students). My most recent students have returned their work with at least a B average - ranging from middle school to high school. I vary in specialty - I have experience teaching Math, English, and Biology. My strongest point is likely helping students learn how to draft essays regarding the sciences as well as for English literature - and helping them understand the difference between approaching both forms of essay.

Before Rhea's assistance, my essays were always written the night before and turned in without proofreading. That poor performance was reflected in my work.

She came in and helped me figure out better ways to brainstorm. I'd never made an outline before, but she taught me how, and then how to expand on it. After helping me with my grammar and spelling, (and teaching me better ways to proofread!) everything I wrote sounded like it came from a different person.

A smarter person. Thank you.
