Carefully selected, highly-credentialed Biology tutors in Washington DC
"I love bringing a student out of their shell and having a conversation about the material. I think the best way for anyone to learn is to explain the new information in different ways that relate back to their own life and having a conversation about the material is the easiest way to do that. In my spare time, I love trying new food, cheering on the Washington Redskins and playing sports."

" During college I became very interested in helping students succeed so I became part of a tutoring program for high school students in which I would help them in Algebra I and II, Geometry and Calculus. I was also a volunteer tutor for incoming freshman students that needed help in science classes, mostly tutoring Biology and Chemistry, but also helping in Anatomy, and Microbiology. My teaching technique is to always stay simple, breaking down the information or problems into small steps so that the student can learn and understand the basics and then build the answer from there. Also I like to keep all the written information organized, ...

"My neuroscience background has exposed me to math, biology, chemistry, psychology, and computer science. More importantly, I've learned how to create connections within and between subjects. I am very enthusiastic about math and the sciences, and I strive to share that energy with my students. I've worked extensively with children and teenagers in the past, including leading 12 teenagers on a cross-country bike trip with an outdoor adventure company."

" I turned my love of science into a successful research career that has taken me into the worlds of chemistry, medicine, biology, and physics. However, my day is never complete until I can share my knowledge with fellow students and scientists. In my experience, the best way to teach math and science is to show students real world examples they can appreciate at any age. By the end of our tutoring sessions, I don't want my students to know rote material; I try to make sure they are able to tell me why it is important and how to teach the material right back to me." ...

"I have tutored students in chemistry and life sciences for over six years. Most recently, I taught a summer course at Georgetown in the fundamentals of medical science to high school sophomores through seniors. I understand that everyone learns differently so I tailor my lessons to my students' needs and goals. Especially in subjects like organic chemistry, where students often feel overwhelmed, I am able to use molecular models to explain concepts like stereochemistry in more visual ways than are used in traditional instruction."

" My future plans are to apply to medical school and fulfill my dreams of becoming a pediatric surgeon. In the past I have tutored elementary, middle and high school students in English, Math and Science. In college, I tutored peers in Statistics, Sociology, and Biology. After college, I worked as a partner teacher in a second grade classroom, which was by far one of the most fulfilling jobs I have experienced."

"The cliche about not noticing the time pass when in one’s element perfectly describes how I feel when I tutor. Thus, I am able to devote almost limitless energy and patience to helping students reach their full potential. For the past five years, I have tutored a range of subjects and students, from fourth grade math to college-level writing. Though my specialty is writing--I recently worked as a tutor at the University of Maryland Writing Center--I love helping students tackle any subject they encounter, whether it's biology, geometry, Latin, or the SATs." ...
