Hello, my name is Destiny and I am a current sophomore at Howard University. I major in Psychology with a minor in Biology, but I have interests in other areas such as English and math.
One of the most important lessons I’ve learned from school is the value of asking for help. This can be the difference between simply memorizing some facts and truly understanding the material given to you. In many cases, learning in a traditional school setting is not effective and students should feel free to reach out for extra guidance. I strive to be that source of guidance for all students who need it. I believe that everyone learns in their own way and that the key to helping someone else lies in finding their unique style of learning. I take great pleasure in finding those styles and using them to enrich students’ minds.
My main areas of expertise are Psychology and English. I’ve been reading at a college level since middle school and scored 5’s on both AP English tests. I also scored a 5 on the AP Psychology exam in addition to receiving A’s in all my psychology classes. I have extensive experience with essay writing, essay editing, and researching. Other subjects I can assist with include Algebra I and II, Geometry, and SAT/ACT prep.
Outside of class, I like to stay busy with school activities and hobbies. I spend most of my time playing the trumpet in my school’s marching band or studying. But when I have free time, I typically catch up with my shows or read.
