I am an undergraduate student at the University of Rhode Island with three years of formal tutoring experience. I have 4 younger siblings, and growing up I would help them with homework once or twice a week. During high school, I started getting paid to tutor other students. I tutored in a range of subjects, including American History, introductory Spanish, Geometry, Algebra I and II, Language and Literature, Biology and Chemistry. My experience has helped me develop effective communication skills, and I am comfortable explaining concepts in new and different ways to help suit the needs of an individual student. During my senior year of high school, I worked exclusively with a student who had ADHD and several learning disabilities. This experience improved my tutoring skills and taught me specific strategies for helping students with learning disabilities.
Currently, I am in the Honors Program at my undergraduate institution and I am taking advanced courses. I am majoring in Biology, so I have a strong science/math background. However, I have also taken a variety of Honors history and literature courses and I am happy to tutor in any area.
Tutoring has been a very fulfilling experience for me. I enjoy helping students master complicated topics and achieve their academic goals. I am professional, calm, and patient. I am comfortable working with students of all ages and in most subjects, and I am happy to accommodate your needs. Feel free to contact me for more information about my qualifications, or schedule an appointment.
