Hello! My name is Kandace Horn! Welcome to Varsity Tutors. I am pleased to meet you. I am a graduate from the University of Houston with a Bachelors of Science degree in Biology and I am currently working on my Masters in Physiology. I would love to work with you in areas such as any of the natural sciences, elementary through high school math and reading. Please checkout my availability below so we can get started to achieving your maximum potential as a student and as an expert in a particular area! I can't wait to meet you!
I aim for each individual to thoroughly understand the material in order to complete future assignments and perform well on exams. I hope to build a solid foundation of any subject in which an individual needs assistance. I will first start with an assessment to examine what the student knows and then build on the strengths that they already have.
I love pouring into individuals and watching them embark on a successful academic career. I was a Residence Advisor in my undergraduate career thus I am accustomed to working with students of various backgrounds. I love working with individuals to help them achieve academic success while in my free time I love to read and swim! I look forward to meeting you,

What is your teaching philosophy?
My teaching philosophy is maximizing the student's full potential by exercising their strengths to help with their weaknesses. Most topics relate to each other so if we can find what you are good at relative to a specific subject, we can start from there!
What might you do in a typical first session with a student?
I would first get to know who you are as an individual. I would love to get to know you and your experience with the material so we can explore the subject thoroughly. I also would start off with an assessment to test strengths and weaknesses.
