I recently earned my Master's degree in Marine Biology from Auburn University, where I was a lab teaching assistant for Organismal Biology, Principles of Biology, and Genetics. During that time, I was the most requested and highly evaluated TA since the department started the program in the 1970s. I was also a teaching assistant during my time as an undergraduate at Auburn, graduating in Marine Biology.
I'm have a very laid back style of teaching and scheduling, and have successfully tutored 20+ private students (and taught 1000+ university students) during my time in Auburn. Fortunately, almost all of my students want to come back and will ask me to tutor multiple classes during their college career! A few have even had me tutor them in history and med school classes, simply because my teaching style works so well for them. If you want to tutor with a friend, it's a great way to stay together in a class and I have reduced rates for each student!
My strengths are the sciences (Honors Biology/Honors Organismal Biology/Genetics/Ecology/Marine Systems, etc) and the histories (World History, European History, Modern/Medieval, etc). I've also had five years of French training and am exceptionally well versed in Music Appreciation.
I've also recently tutored Intro to Psychology, as well as Logic, Ethics, and a few other prerequisite type classes. Ask me about any other subjects or classes (especially sciences) and I'll see what I think my own abilities are!
I received an ACT score of 34, a GRE Biology Subject Test score of 830 (90th percentile), graduated undergraduate cum laude with honors, earned a Master's of Science degree, presented my research at multiple scientific conferences, received 20+ scholarships and research grants, received an award for most highly evaluated teaching assistant at Auburn University, and have studied and taught science oversees (Bermuda and the Bahamas).
The most rewards part of my past has been watching students who once struggled now enter med school, vet school, optometry school, PhDs, and fellowship programs. I'll always be a mentor and friend to those students, and I can't wait to help others! No matter what your level, I know that with a little help and some fun analogies, I can help you reach whatever goal you desire. Send me a message, let me know what you're studying, and I'll talk to you soon!
