I'm currently a senior at Rice University, pre-med, and majoring in Biochemistry and minoring in Business and Global Health Technologies. In many of the subjects I tutor, I've learned them not just once or twice, but three times (for example - General Biology, AP Biology, college-level Biology). Because I have been through the same learning difficulties, I know how to explain the topics in a way that is easily understood.

As for my tutoring style, I like to get to know the student's goals, difficulties, and schedule, and tutor the student accordingly. In the tutoring sessions, if you don't have any specific questions or homework to do, I'll do a brief review of the topic, and then ask you to work a few example problems. This helps keep you both active and alert, and ensures that you're understanding the material.

My past clients have included middle school students to college freshmen, whom I have been able to interact with easily, possibly because of the age proximity. The subjects I have tutored include the PSAT, Calculus, Biology, Chemistry, and Geometry. In the past, I have also tutored elementary school students and worked as a full time Teaching Assistant in an ESL program.

I look forward to hearing from you! Let me know if you have any questions :)
