I have earned a Bachelor’s of Science degree from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln with minors in Mathematics and chemistry. After graduation, I was admitted into the doctoral program in the Department of Biological Sciences at Clark Atlanta University, where I earned a Ph.D. in biology.
I have always enjoyed tutoring mainly because I am able to help students tackle complex disciplines and achieve success. My first experience as a tutor began while I was a junior in college, lasting about two years, tutoring students in Mathematics, Biology and Chemistry. I have also lectured various classes while in grad school in General Biology and Cancer Biology at the undergraduate and graduate level, respectively.
There are many styles and teaching philosophies available, but I believe that a good tutor must be versatile, adapting to their students’ needs and temperament. I believe this mainly because everyone learns differently. Furthermore, it is important to present concepts in a clear and simple manner, asking questions and obtaining feedback to gauge understanding of the concepts. Flooding students with information is not conducive for learning, but explaining in a simple and relatable manner is.
Apart from tutoring, I enjoy reading, DIY home projects, fishing and photography. I generally read about 2 to 3 books in a month on topics including history, philosophy, religion and science.
