I have been tutoring biology, chemistry, and math since 2012 and I absolutely love it. These subjects are fascinating to me and tutoring is a great way for me to share my enthusiasm with others. I recently graduated with a B.S. in biochemistry, so I know how important it is to have a strong foundation of math and science fundamentals to build on.
What's most important to me as a tutor is that I help my students to feel confident and interested in what they're studyingif that works out, the rest is a lot easier. I pride myself on being patient and encouraging, and having high but reasonable expectations of students. The most helpful techniques I use during tutoring sessions include asking questions to gauge understanding, drawing out visual aids, and providing real-world examples.
