Hi there! I am very excited to help you reach your academic goals. As a former STEM student, I am passionate in seeing a students confidence rise as they conquer challenging problems and concepts in STEM subjects. Ultimately winning these small victories will help you on your path for your life goals of becoming whatever motivates you, and I want to help you get there!
I am well-versed in tutoring chemistry and biology subjects, as I just recently graduated from St. Edwards University with a B.S. in Biochemistry with a minor in Psychology. For three years at SEU, I was a tutor, teaching assistant and supplemental instructor for General Chemistry, General Biology, Microbiology and Organic Chemistry. In addition to this, I have also done private tutoring for both high-school and undergraduate natural science courses since for six years now. My favorite subject to tutor is General Chemistry, not only because it is the class I have the most experience tutoring but also because I think it is the most fun (nerd status, I know). Although I love tutoring chem and bio classes, I also tutor for psychology and math classes as well as some test prep classes for the GRE, SAT, ACT and subject tests!
As a long-time basketball player and coach, my teaching philosophy is practice makes perfect! I know concepts can be scary at first, but I will walk you through the rough patches until you feel confident enough to do some problems on your own. My goal by the end of our sessions is to have you walk away having independently performed problems in the areas you were once struggling with, now much more confident with that material. I not only do I emphasize content in my sessions, but also best-study practices. This is so you can take the lessons you learn with and become the autonomous learner you need to be to reach your goals.
Finally, outside of tutoring I am also very active in my community. I coach basketball for middle school girls, work in the medical field, and thoroughly enjoy the live music scene here int he ATX! Some of my favorite things to do are to walk up and down congress and listen to the free music while eating some Amys ice cream or some Lucky Robot sushi. If you dont see me running the Town Lake trail, I am probably at Zilker park SUP boarding with my roommates corgi or getting fat on Chuys chips and salsa. In addition, I try and play basketball as much as possible, and enjoy a good session of Hot yoga here and there. So, with all that said I hope we have some stuff in common! And if not, Id love to learn more about you as we help you be the best student you can be!
