I am a PhD seeking graduate student at the University of South Florida, currently on medical leave due to necessary surgery. I work in the Department of Integrative biology, specializing in genetics.
Since graduating from UF, I planned to either go to medical school, or to seek a position as a professor teaching at a reputable college. I chose the latter; though the pay is less, I find too much joy in both research and teaching to not pursue those as a career at the highest level.
Throughout my life, I have found that I am very skilled at teaching both my colleagues and those younger than me. Around my middle school years, I’ve found have a knack for explaining abstract and difficult-to-understand topics. At which point I began tutoring on a volunteer basis which later developed into a private tutoring business. I normally teach college courses as a Teaching Assistant at the University of South Florida Tampa campus for two years now, while I further my work on my dissertation (centered on genetics).
I am comfortable with teaching mathematics through Calculus I (or whatever the equivalent.) I am extremely competent with statistics, as it comprises an integral part of both my TA work and research. I also excel in all areas of academic writing. I am most suited to test prep tutoring sessions: I have invariably excelled at all standardized tests. I am also familiar with ACT and SAT formats, and the particular and differing strategies that maximize the likelihood of high scores for each.
