As a high school student, I understand the struggles other students might encounter when trying to learn. Throughout my years as a astdent and a tutor, I have picked up many skills that I use to teach others. I have a very solid understanding of math, but excel especially in geometry. I can also give tutoring lessons to anyone doing elementary school math.
Giving instruction on concepts and then allowing students to put the material in their own words. I strongly believe that hands on practice with homework, problems, and quizzes are the key to successful and long term understanding of any course subject.
I like to make things practical, biology is alive so I like to make connections with our own body's, stories seem to work well. I have done all types of studying from making flash cards to interactive notes. I mold to the way the person I am tutoring learns. It's about teaching them in their primary learning style.
I teach step by step. I think it is important to show people the basic foundation and to work up from that. Once the basics are understood, it is easier for everything else to fall into place. Learning is NOT about memorization, it is about understanding concepts.
My teaching philosophy is very simple, and it was taught to me by my BIO 101/102 professor. The teacher does not give you the grade, you give yourself the grade. My teaching method is based first off of familiarizing yourself with the knowledge that needs to be known, then practicing and applying it not until you get it right, but until you can't get it wrong.
I give lessons to science and math students from middle school through university level. I believe that application of concepts through examples and practice questions is the best way to achieve a solid grasp of complex topics.
My focus is to give each of my students a way of approaching answers through conceptual thinking, so they don't have to rely on pure memory. We will begin with a NBME, the standard of determining where you stand. I will analyze your NBME based on the nature of the bar distribution. We can determine a strong lesson plan from that point.
I teach via the Socratic method. When a student approaches me with a question, I take the time to ask questions to direct them towards the answer on their own, so that they can learn the process to find the answers and not just "know" the answers.
I really try to approach each of my lessons by relating to the student first. Being as young as I am, this is very easy for me to do. I typically like to do a "pretest" that lets me evaluate what the student knows and is having trouble with. From this, I teach a lesson and provide many practice problems.
My teaching method is centered around the student. I can vary my teaching methods from student to student because I know that everyone learns differently. I primarily teach undergraduate students, but I can also help high school students as well.
My teaching method is multi-faceted. I use videos, hand-made worksheets, powerpoints, and create flashcards and practice tests for my students. If a session is 1 hour long, I will use the first 15 minutes to do an overview of information about what will be covered that day, then use the remainder of the time with active learning opportunities.
I provide college-level lessons for students needing assistance with biology or related fields. I approach lessons by having students walk me through their understanding of a given topic, so that I can identify areas for further improvement. From there, I provide new ways for the student to view the problem, so that they may better understand it.
I believe that passion for a subject is the most important ingredient for success. By inspiring students, I want to empower them to ask questions, be self-motivated, and learn skills to be able to successfully learn and remember important topics.
Hello! My name is Rebecca Phillips. I'm a junior biology major at OSU. I believe effective teaching requires a combination of tactile, auditory, and visual methods.

I have had two years of Anatomy and Physiology experience starting my senior year of high school and my freshman year in college. It's my favorite subject and I love helping others have a better understanding of it! I have a basic understanding of biology that is apart of anatomy and physiology as well.
For the hands on student interested in taking biology further. Best for independent learners and home school students. But I will also help students enrolled in other classes while exposing them to more of the hands on and experimental aspects involved. We will dive into the origins of biological life, how life is coded, and move into learning about recombinant DNA, synthetic biology, and GMOs.
I graduated class of 2013 from BMC Durfee High School in Fall River, MA. From there I went on to Rhode Island College where I studied biology for 4 years & obtained a Bachelor of Science in Biology in the spring of 2017. I am willing to provide one-on-one tutoring sessions to students who feel the need for additional help in the subject area.
Recent Graduate with Bachelor of Science in Biology Upbeat, positive and always looking for new ways to help teach. I've always found the more hands on and memorable the teaching experience the more likely information is to stay with you. Will help with whatever biology subject you need help with.
I graduated Summa Cum Laude with a B.S. in Biomedical Science from Western Michigan University. I offer a friendly, student-minded approach to tutoring biology and chemistry.
