ExperienceI have tutored at the University of Miami as a Workshop Leader for Organic Chemistry. I have also tutored high school students in basic chemistry and biology during my time as a student. I have taken University level chemistry and organic chemistry as well as biology. I have a unique way of tutoring students to help them understand the subjects. I also have experience in tutoring students with ADD. I understand not everyone is gifted with test taking skills, but I know how to help students understand how to build test taking skills.
HobbiesI believe success in school is about reinforcement and applying the knowledge you're given. Don't wait until the end of the year to find out your son/ daughter is behind in their classes! Send an email to find out how to get started. You won't regret it. Since I am a current university student, my schedule varies due to school and other priorities, but I am always willing to work with students on the schedules. I am highly recommended and very experienced, having cared for special needs children and have 5+ years of experience in tutoring. Rather than simply lecturing a student, I invite the student to get their hands dirty whenever possible. Working through a problem yourself (with the guidance of a teacher) is a profoundly more effective technique in remembering a concept than only hearing it explained. I also encourage students to think critically and challenge what I have to say. My main job as a tutor is to teach my students to be independent learners.
