I have been an informal tutor for younger students since I was in elementary school, was involved in piloting an after-school peer tutoring program at my high school, and have volunteered as a college admissions coach/essay reader throughout my time in college. I scored a 780 on SAT Reading, and have always had very strong competency in reading assessments. I have also volunteered to tutor for the QuestBridge program after being selected as a match semifinalist. I have extensive experience working one on one with other students and a wide variety of learning styles. As a tutor, I believe collaboration and an open, relaxed environment so that students feel comfortable asking every question which may help them better process information or grasp complex subjects.
Hello! My name is Kieona, and I am currently a rising senior at the Univerity of Pennsylvania studying neurobiology and actively researching neurodevelopment. I'm originally from Oklahoma City and enjoy traveling, reading, and trying new restaurants in my spare time. I have found throughout my studies that there is a significant difference between knowing enough to pass an exam and having a functional base from which to draw conclusions and make evaluations on a subject. Further, during my time at Penn I have come to realize that there is also a difference between mastery of a subject and mastery of pedagogical technique, and have come to realize that the passion and enthusiasm a professor has for teaching can make all of the difference when it comes to students learning and retaining fundamentals of a subject. This is what I will to bring to my tutoring services - enthusiasm and creative teaching styles to help my tutees retain and master the subjects they want, and a collaborative approach to learning that sparks a long-term appreciation for science, philosophy, reading, and writing. I have always found my academic pursuits to be both enjoyable and rewarding, and love having the opportunity to foster an appreciation of the pursuit of knowledge.
I am currently studying neurobiology at the college level and researching the development of a particular cell type in the brain. This means I have a broad knowledge base of cellular biology, and up to date knowledge of techniques, approaches, and discoveries in molecular neuroscience. I am aiming to eventually continue on to obtain a Ph.D., as I have really fallen in love with my research and the scientific process.
I would love to hear from you! I really enjoy tutoring, and hope to spark an appreciation for whatever subject you would like a little extra help with! I can ensure prompt responses, flexible hours, and a cheery, patient, and passionate demeanor. Feel free to contact me with any questions you may have, or hopefully to schedule a lesson!
