« I am happy to write a recommendation letter for Vanessa Rosa, who tutored me during my junior year of college. I have always loved science but it never translated in my grades. Vanessa helped tutor me through cell biology. She did not give up on me and would prep weekly exams to help solidify my understanding of the subject. Soon she came to realize what methods helped me learn best, tools that now I know are essential for my learning style. She was very passionate in having me succeed, very patient and always happy to help with anything she could. She will help you find the confidence you'll need to tackle any class and will work with you to ensure you not only pass the class but really understand the material. Best, Anayeli Correa »

Northwestern graduate student and science tutor based in Chicago, with 3 years experience tutoring undergraduate level biology and introductory chemistry courses. Gives lessons in person!

Methodology

I am currently a graduate student at Northwestern studying Reproductive Science & Medicine. My method is to help students understand course material by taking what they know and expanding that knowledge through study techniques and resources for their style of learning. I understand that each student learns at their own pace, and am very patient when it comes to learning or re-learning course material. I identify the students weaknesses and work with them to change study habits by providing them with quizzes, reading assignments, and resources to enhance their level of learning.

Background

I am a tutor and student who loves helping others find new ways to study course material. I have taught undergraduate students in NYC who have passed their classes with a B+ and higher. I make learning science easy to understand and engaging for students of all ages.

I am happy to write a recommendation letter for Vanessa Rosa, who tutored me during my junior year of college.

I have always loved science but it never translated in my grades. Vanessa helped tutor me through cell biology. She did not give up on me and would prep weekly exams to help solidify my understanding of the subject. Soon she came to realize what methods helped me learn best, tools that now I know are essential for my learning style. She was very passionate in having me succeed, very patient and always happy to help with anything she could.

She will help you find the confidence you'll need to tackle any class and will work with you to ensure you not only pass the class but really understand the material.

Best,
Anayeli Correa

Vanessa has been tutoring me for about two years and she takes the time to go back into her old notes just to help her students where they currently stand. She is also very humble and it feels comfortable to be around her. She is stern, but not rude, and it is going to get her really far.

I've known Vanessa for a few years now. I met her through tutoring. She's an excellent science tutor. She clearly explains the material and she's easy to understand. She really knows her stuff. I would recommend Vanessa to all other superprof members.
