I graduated from Allegheny College with an English degree and high honors in 2009. I went on to Penn State to study biochemistry and premed. My schooling has been diverse! While I can teach various subjects, these are my favorites:
1) ADMISSIONS ESSAYS! You heard it, I love this challenging form of writing. My previous clients often came to me frustrated and uncertain where to begin. After tutoring, though, they were admitted with great essays. I'd say my tutoring style is thorough and demanding, especially for those applying for reach or Ivy League schools. I'm also convinced, though, that you will have fun and let your personality shine through!
2) Organic Chemistry and Physics. I actually struggled with science in high school. After high school physics, I was convinced I was "terrible at it" and swore I would "never take science again." Despite this, I had felt drawn to science since childhood, and I had a nagging desire to learn it. I finally decided to gather up my courage and study biochemistry at Penn State. I had to learn step-by-step through hard work, but I ultimately did great, and I learned the material very thoroughly. Who knew physics would turn out to be my favorite class?
I can also tutor general chemistry, biochemistry, biology, genetics, and statistics, and I can teach writing in all its forms (grammar, English essays, scientific writing, etc.) Finally, if you need a break from all these intense subjects, I could always introduce you my two favorite hobbies- piano and salsa dancing!
