I am an experienced tutor with patience and great communication skills. I've been tutoring for about 8 years now, mostly high school regents level, in addition to honors and AP. The rest of the students I have tutored are preparing for SAT/ACT or are in beginning years of college. I love to be able to explain ideas and pass on my knowledge to others and help them succeed. In addition to subject material, I teach test- taking skills and study skills that encompass all of academia and will hopefully follow my students throughout their lives.
In my graduate career, I was also a part of a grant-based program to improve learning of general chemistry for college students. My role in this program was to write, produce, and edit learning videos on different topics to introduce material and engage students, as well as teach them valuable problem-solving techniques.
I think my teaching style is unique as I cater to every student's learning style, build academic confidence, and make learning fun.
HobbiesI enjoy staying in shape, reading, watching movies, listening to music, and playing violin. I've finished the Harry Potter, Twilight, Hunger Games, Divergent, The Maze Runner, and many others so you can say I'm a bit of a bookworm. I am a HUGE music fan, I go to at least one concert a month, and I connect with my students a lot via music, providing a comfortable environment for learning. I have one dog and she is a big mush. One of my favorite shows on TV right now is Scorpion, and I also like Stitchers. I have a lot more I could say but this is just a little taste into my life.
Last, but certainly not least, I love the color purple.
