I am a recent graduate from one of the country's top schools in my field, the College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering. My Bachelor's is in nanoscale science with a concentration in biology. My major consisted of many very physics-heavy classes, as well as lots of biology and math classes. I also took several chemistry, engineering, and computer science classes. My year-long research project that I did for my senior year was a bio-statistics project, focused on mining the NCBI DNA database and collecting information on specific transcripts.
I look forward to every new student I tutor for a myriad of reasons! First, both teaching and learning are much easier in a 1-on-1 scenario, because the tutor must only focus on the growth of a single student. Additionally, the student and tutor can actually discuss the subject to really build an understanding of it. I incorporate lots of real-world applications and analogies in my teaching, as I know from experience that bridging the gap between theoretical equations students might know and what it actually means in the world makes an incredible difference in ability to grasp it.
In my spare time I like to play guitar, hike and bike, ski and play video games.
