I just moved back to my hometown of Tempe after a five-year hiatus, during which I attended Colorado College. This little-known school offers a strong liberal arts curriculum, which allowed me to develop my talents in everything from the upper-level sciences (General and Organic Chemistry, Biology, Microbiology, and Biochemistry) to English, Math (up to Calculus 2) and Spanish. My varied course of study gave me the chance to experience a wide range of subjects, yet it was Colorado College's location on the front range of the Rocky Mountains that fed my passion for the outdoors and eventually led me to a B.A. in Biology. I would love to tutor others to help them pursue a passion for the life sciences, especially if they are considering applying to dental school. I recently scored highly on the DAT (Dental Aptitude Test), which tests the same material as the MCAT, and feel I could prepare others as well for these difficult (and stressful!) tests.
During my time at Colorado College I also had the amazing opportunity to study abroad in Costa Rica, where I was able to put nine years of Spanish education to practice. If you are looking for help with Spanish grammar, comprehension, or speaking-ability I can use my own command of the language to get you to the next level.
Last, but not least, Colorado College's unique course of study is what prepared me well to become a tutor. At Colorado College we took courses on the "Block Plan," during which students took one course at a time, for one month only. This meant that the same group of about 15 students went to the same class everyday, making it very easy to form small study groups after class. Essentially, I spent four years tutoring (and receiving tutoring!) from my fellow classmates as we worked through class notes and problem sets. Bringing my experiences as both the tutor and tutee from these study sessions, I will strive to create a tutoring plan to your unique form of learning and sending you on your way.
