I am a junior student at Cedarville University pursuing a Bachelor of Science in Biology with a focus in Zoology. During high school, I attended a 2-day per week homeschool/college prep program called Providence Extension Program (PEP) where I learned from amazing and caring tutors who were subject matter experts. They modeled for me what an outstanding tutor should look like.
I took Chemistry in my senior year of high school and absolutely fell in love with the way that it challenged my brain. Early on in the class, three of my classmates noticed my success in the course and asked for some help with the material. Several times throughout the year, I was able to meet with them during study halls or lunches, or over video call and provide extra help. Rather than spoon-feed the answers to the homework, I desired to train my peers on how to approach the various mathematical and conceptual problems presented in Chemistry. My classmates told me they especially benefitted from my "step-by-step" teaching style and my study strategies. It was such an absolute joy and privilege to be able to share my love of science with my peers, and I love doing it again with classmates in college!
I would be delighted to encourage and help students meet their academic goals in scientific subjects related to Chemistry, Biology, or Zoology!
Here are three very important things to know about me:
1. I've always been obsessed with finding the best study strategies so that I can make the most out of my education and do the best I can. Time-management, self-discipline, and organization were among the chief skills I honed both in high school and college. I take my role as a tutor seriously and strive to give this job the focus and attention it deserves to provide a quality experience for students.
2. I am very passionate about science (Chemistry in particular) and I genuinely desire to help students succeed and soak in the beauty of science.
3. I recognize that because I am still an undergraduate I still have much to learn and master and that I will need to refresh myself on the material from time to time. However, since I have so recently wrestled with the material, I will bring a lot of sympathy and relatability to students and will perhaps be better able to identify where their struggle/confusion lies.
Undergraduate Degree: Cedarville University - Bachelor of Science, Biology, General
I love nature and animals and am very interested in pursuing a future career in wildlife conservation or rehabilitation. I enjoy volunteering for animal rescues and exploring nature. It brings me great joy to encourage others and share the love of my Savior, Jesus Christ. Some of my hobbies include learning science, reading and writing, listening to indie music, and hiking.
