My name is Rachael and I am a recent graduate of Rollins College in Winter Park, FL. I earned my degree in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology and am happy to share my knowledge and love for science with others. During my time at Rollins, I was chosen to tutor and grade lab reports for my professors. I also have tutoring experience from high school in my hometown back in Pennsylvania. I have a passion for learning and love nothing more than passing that passion onto those that I get the opportunity to teach. Every student is different and learns in their own individual way, so discovering the best route of tutoring is vital before beginning teaching. Through my years of tutoring, I have learned that patience and consistency are two virtues that I must utilize while helping students reach their goals. My tutoring subjects are focused in the sciences as well as Spanish, which I studied for six years.

What is your teaching philosophy?
I believe that it is important to understand the student you are tutoring before beginning. Learning the student's background and learning style are extremely important in being able to best teach the material. If a student can understand the material and relate it back to their personal life, the material becomes easier to comprehend and learn.
