I am currently pursuing my Bachelor's Degree in Biology from the University of California, Santa Barbara. I plan to graduate with this degree in June of 2016. I have worked for a few years previously as a private tutor back in my home town. I tutor mostly high school subjects. I am able to tutor in high school chemistry, biology, and US history. I am also able to tutor Biology and US History at the AP level, and the SAT II Biology E/M exam. I am also able to tutor the Math and Science portions of the SAT. My favorite subjects to teach would be the ACT science portion, as well as US History.

My tutoring style involves a lot of preparation work as well as review. I believe that the best way for students to learn, and it has helped me as well, is to constantly practice questions in whatever subject they may be studying. This is especially true for science and math subjects. Cramming simply does not work in getting the material to stick with the student. The point of learning is to allow the recollection of material over a medium to long period of time. Cramming only works for the short term, and is not favorable to learning the material well.

My hobbies include reading speculative fiction, biking, and music. I have played the viola for the better part of a decade, and enjoy playing in quartets. I also very much enjoy travelling to places out of the country, and learning about other places' heritage.

I very much look forward to working with you.
