I've recently graduated from Earlham College in Richmond, Indiana with a double major in Biology and Philosophy. I am looking to return to school in the near future to pursue a masters in either teaching or genetic counseling.
In the past I have been a formal tutor for introductory biology classes, both for macro- and micro-focused courses. I have also done peer tutoring for various levels of math, up to AB Calculus. Aside from this formal environment, I've also spent several summers working at Boy Scout camps, teaching scouts a variety of merit badges, from archery to citizenship and public speaking. As a tutor, I am looking to focus on tutoring biology, pre-college testing, and mathematics, as I recognize that these are the primary focuses of most students looking for tutoring, but I would also be more than happy to tutor subjects like literature, history, and philosophy if anyone so desired.
In regards to my teaching philosophy, I implement different strategies dependent on environment, content, and a student's needs. I can say that my only prerogative is to find the best mix of strategies for each student. I think the best tutor knows how to provide, not only academic answers, but emotional and tangible support to their student.
