As a tutor, I enjoy working with students to achieve a complete understanding on the subject in question. One of the best feelings in the world is coming to understand something that you previously thought was impossible. It is my goal to help students reach that goal in the best way for the student. My students are often surprised at how easy their least favorite subjects have become!
I have previously tutored and led study sessions in a variety of subjects. I also grew up with two younger twin brothers who I've been tutoring and helping with homework for most of my life. In tutoring, my strategy is to determine the learning style of the student and to reinforce knowledge and understanding in a way that best compliments the learning style. People learn things differently and at different paces; when students struggle with a subject, it's usually because their learning style conflicts with the style or pace with which it is being taught. Tutoring one on one gives us the opportunity to learn at the student's optimal pace.
I earned a B.S. in Neuroscience and a B.A. in Psychology at UC Santa Cruz. The subjects I tutor are Biology, Chemistry, Genetics, Math, Physics, English, Psychology, and some test prep. My favorite subjects are Biology and Psychology. In my free time, I enjoy reading (books and comics), writing, drawing, and playing sports. I'm a friendly and open person, and together we will conquer any subject you have trouble with.
