Learning anything can be difficult, especially when one is not interested and fails to make a genuine effort. The first step is to find the beauty in knowledge. I have gone through this transition and can relate to someone who has difficulty learning weather it originates from lack of interest or inability to understand concepts using conventional methods. I, as a visual and conceptual learner, find myself able to study and learn more effectively if I manipulate what I am learning to fit my preferences and I can help and I am willing to help one learn how to do this.
I am a senior at the University of Texas at Dallas and I will be graduating in Spring 2016. I have completed my B.S. degree in Biology and am currently working on a B.S. degree in Neuroscience. I will enter either pharmacy school at UT or medical school after I graduate. I have been tutoring since high school, starting out in mathematics. In college I tutored in mathematics, biology, chemistry and even standardized tests such as the PCAT and MCAT. I also have work experience in revising and writing questions for these tests. Lastly, I am a TA for anatomy and physiology at my university and this has been my favorite teaching experience. My favorite subjects to tutor are math (anything from geometry and SAT math to calculus) and science- particularly biology and chemistry. I love subjects such as anatomy, neuroscience and organic chemistry, which make you form images in your mind and learn using spatial skills. I find that this is one of my strengths and it does not stop at the books. I also play sports such as soccer and football. The skill definitely helped me as a goalkeeper for high school team.
I like to enjoy the good-weather-days by swimming, playing football and futball, golfing and taking walks in the park. During down times I like to play darts, build things, do some microscopy or read books on neurology and evolution. I also am a big fan of video games and can entertain myself for weeks after getting a new game. I also love music as I have been playing the tuba and the snare since middle school. I especially like to play on my drum set whenever I come home for a few days. I have always loved being an athlete and I exercise regularly (my favorite workout is none other than the deadlift!) I enjoy nature and love going camping, taking hikes and boating. I am also an animal enthusiast, as my childhood dream was to become a zoologist and a marine biologist; I still hope to fight for conservation in Africa and South America after I am seasoned in my profession. My long term goal is to contribute to the effort to find causes/cures for many neuro-degenerative diseases as well as neural/psychotic disorders and in the field of neuroscience in general as it purely fascinates me.
