I think education is one of the greatest actions we can take to improve our societies. I am a natural born teacher and was frequently the individual my peers turned to when struggling with classroom material. I have always found joy when a student reaches the 'aha' moment of understanding something they struggle with.
I received my BS in Environmental Biology from SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry, where I tutored General Chemistry and was a TA for Dendrology. In addition, I was always a year ahead in my math in high school, taking the honors classes and I also received a 5 on my AP Calculus AB exam.
I mainly tutor Math and Science, including Algebra and Biology. There are two main components to my tutoring style that help students understand and remember material:
1. I try to break down concepts and transform them into something more relatable to the student. By replacing unfamiliar jargon with familiar subjects, I find it easiest to understand more difficult concepts or processes.
2. Practice! Nothing beats the tried and true repetition. This helps fine tune procedures and sheds light on areas students struggle with, allowing me to reiterate or re-explain tougher material.
In addition, I love to cook, dance, practice yoga, and dabble in nature photography!
