I started tutoring student-athletes when I was in college. After I graduated with my BS in microbiology with minors in chemistry and Spanish, I was a tutor at a state college working with high school and college students. I have also been privately tutoring students of all ages and levels.
I enjoy the learning process and the interaction between instructor and student, working together to solve problems and figure out concepts that were not clear before. I've always wanted to be a teacher and I hope to be a middle or high school science teacher in the future. I'm currently a grad student finishing my Master's in biomedical science and a substitute teacher.
I have earned good scores in history and English, but I feel more comfortable tutoring in algebra, chemistry, biology, statistics, and Spanish.
As with all services, please give accurate, timely feedback to your tutor. We are tutors, not teachers, and if you are satisfied or dissatisfied with our work, please tell us! We all want to help our students and we cannot do that effectively if the student does not speak up about what they need.
If you enjoy what you're learning and you feel like you're making good progress with your tutor, say it!
If you feel like your tutor is not helping or is not a good personality fit, say it!
We learned about teaching and learning styles, methods, and preferences; classroom management; tips on hosting discussions; and identifying course objectives and using the appropriate assessments. At the end of the program, we put together a teaching portfolio that included our teaching philosophy, mock syllabi, and mock lesson plans.
The National Honor Society (NHS) is the nation's premier organization established to recognize outstanding high school students. More than just an honor roll, NHS serves to honor those students who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of scholarship, leadership, service, and character. These characteristics have been associated with membership in the organization since its beginning in 1921.
