Lesson Details

Biology

Levels Taught:
Elementary, Middle School, High School

Hello! I am an incoming junior at Harvey Mudd College. I am majoring in mathematical and computational biology. Biology has been one of my favorite subjects since middle school. I have taken general biology, AP biology, molecular genetics, computational biology, and mathematical biology. I have been tutoring students (ranging from elementary school to high school) in various subjects for 6 years now. I have a lot of experience working with students with different learning styles. I love studying the sciences and I’d love to help students understand the concepts instead of memorizing them.

Hi there! I am majoring in mathematical and computational biology at Harvey Mudd College. I love studying the sciences because it's exciting to learn how things work and to logic things out. I love working with others - I have been tutoring students (ranging from elementary school to high school) on various school subjects for about 6 years now.

Music is another huge part of my life: I have been playing the piano for 14 years and the violin for 8 years now. I am currently a violinist in the Pomona College Orchestra. In 2014, I was invited to perform at Carnegie Hall after my participation in the American Fine Arts Festival. In high school, I placed either first or second on solo, duet, and ensemble competitions in various competitions held at places such as Diamond Bar High School and Chapman University. Through these activities, I practiced on persistence and patience. Teaching experience wise, I have taught piano for 3 years before.

Additionally, I enjoy actively participating in my community. In high school, I was really involved in the American Red Cross and Key Club. In college, I am still finding joy in volunteering in different organizations on campus. I also enjoy other activities such as reading, meditation, theater, tennis, rock climbing, and ballroom.

I work with people according to their personality and the way that they learn best. If I were given the opportunity to tutor your student, I would make sure everything is clearly explained because I hate memorizing.

I look forward to sharing my passions with you!

Sophia worked with my daughter during her Junior year of high school. My daughter was really struggling to understand the material and Sophia was a huge help. Sophia broke the lessons down and was able to instruct my daughter in a way that she could comprehend. Her grade improved by one letter which was wonderful. We truly appreciated Sophia's help.
