I am a recent graduate of the University of California, Davis, where I received a Bachelor of Science in Genetics with a minor in Quantitative Biology and Bioinformatics. I will soon be entering one of the premier Genomics PhD programs in the country to study the genomics behind neurological disorders. I have tutored students ranging from sixth grade through college. I really enjoy tutoring Math and Science topics because I really enjoy seeing someone who may be struggling finally understand these sometimes tough subjects. I feel that my strengths when it comes to tutoring include being able to relay difficult ideas clearly and being able to explain topics in several different fashions when necessary. In my spare time I enjoy reading pretty much anything and everything athletic in nature, as well as practicing skills necessary in the ever-changing fields of genomics and bioinformatics.

Q & A

If a student has difficulty learning a skill or concept, what would you do?

In this case, I would relate the topic to something the student is interested in. By comparing a difficult topic to something the student is already comfortable with, that mental obstacle can be hurdled easily.

What strategies have you found to be most successful when you start to work with a student?

To be attentive to their learning style. Not everyone learns the same way, so I don't expect to be able to tutor the same way.

How would you help a student get excited/engaged with a subject that they are struggling in?

If a student isn't particularly excited with learning a certain subject, I would find someone famous from whatever they are interested in that also had some interest in the difficult topic (maybe an athlete with a degree in the subject).

What techniques would you use to be sure that a student understands the material?

My favorite is to have them teach it back to me. If you can explain how to do something, you have definitely learned it.
