I am a graduate of La Sierra University where I received my BA in Psychology. While psychology is a huge passion of mine, I am also very passionate about the sciences such as biology and chemistry. Because of this, I chose to minor in both biology and biochemistry. One of my biggest passions lie in mission work. I have attended about 8 mission trips to places such as Guatemala, Peru, Nicaragua, New Orleans (following Hurricane Katrina), and different parts of Mexico. I am currently in the process of applying to medical school where I hope to eventually use my medical degree towards mission work. My passion to work with others also lead me to tutoring.

I have experience tutoring mainly high school students and have learned different tutoring techniques thanks to all of them. Every student has different learning styles, unfortunately sometimes they don't know what that is themselves. I enjoy helping them figure that out because when they do, their test scores skyrocket. I know what it's like to be a struggling student, and I also know what it's like to be a successful student. Being a successful student came with a lot of time trying to figure out my learning style. I enjoy setting students up for success, my tutoring style is based on helping students figure out effective study techniques for life not just to help them pass a test. I really enjoy helping students with General Chemistry, biology, Cell Biology, Micro Biology, and biochemistry. I am a very personable tutor and truly enjoy helping students with the subjects that they are struggling with.

Q & A

What might you do in a typical first session with a student?

In my first session with a student, I want to go over what they believe to be their strengths and weaknesses so we can learn to tackle those. I would also want to go over learning styles and help them find their own. :)

How can you help a student become an independent learner?

My teaching them to be proactive will be the best way! I enjoy teaching students how to make effective study guides that will help them in the long run, and will be a great tool for them to do independently in the future.

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

If a student has difficulty learning a skill or concept then they are probably not learning this based off of their individual learning style. I will go through different styles until I find a way for the student to learn most effectively.

How do you evaluate a student's needs?

I evaluate a student's needs by having a session dedicated to figuring out how they best learn, and go from there. Every student can be successful in a class if they tackle it correctly.

What types of materials do you typically use during a tutoring session?

I use a lot of colors. Colors can be helpful when trying to memorize in order to differentiate between categories.
