I am a graduate of the University of Washington – Seattle, with a Bachelor’s of Science in Biochemistry, and a minor in Chemistry.
I am very comfortable in a variety of subjects up to university level. These include: Mathematics through university level Calculus, Physics, General Chemistry, Organic Chemistry, Biology, and Biochemistry. I have genuine interest in these areas and would be very enthusiastic to pass on my knowledge of the coursework to others
In addition to working for Varsity Tutors, I also do SAT/ACT and curriculum based prep for The Bellevue Learning Center, an in person tutoring company.
In high school, I worked as a ski instructor, giving me direct experience in teaching people of varying ages. Additionally, participation in study groups was one of my most frequently used study techniques as a college student. While participating in study groups, I spent at least as much time teaching others college level concepts as I did being taught. These frequent study sessions helped me learn ways to become much more effective as a tutor.
A large part of my responsibilities as a ski instructor was communicating with both my students and their parents and working with them to develop more effective ways to help my students get the most out of each teaching session. Although the subject matter of the courses will be much different, I believe that this experience will still be very relevant in a tutoring setting.
