I'm a fourth year college student at Rutgers University. I'm studying biology and aspire to be a dentist. I'm a tutor at my university's learning center and also have experience as a chemistry lab teaching assistant. My favorite aspect of tutoring is being able to relieve a student of their worries and assure them that they're completely capable of comprehending the material, they simply just have to put in the time. I myself was an average student in high school, however once I got to university I really applied myself and worked hard to get to where I'm at now. I started out in university taking very basic classes like pre-algebra and I even used to go to my school's tutoring center (before I started to work there), but I didn't let that discourage me. Once I started to take higher level science classes I was towards the top of the class in subjects like chemistry and physics (these classes have between 150-200 people or more). I've taken many math courses in college, the last one being calculus 2 however I prefer to tutor lower level math courses particularly algebra as I feel a lot of the concepts are very intuitive and I can help a student grasp it more easily. Of all my subjects, I'm best at tutoring chemistry because I have solid experience teaching it and also because it's my favorite subject. I've been towards the top 5% in my general chemistry as well as organic chemistry classes at school. When I tutor a student I like to first hear from them what they understand as far as a topic and then build from there. I find this is efficient because that way we don't spend time on something he/she already understands and can dedicate time to actual learning. I then like to walk them through an example or two and then supervise them while they attempt some problems on their own. I truly look forward to working with you and just remember that you're capable of doing anything you put your mind to!
