About Me

Experience Summary

I have been tutoring since 2008. During that time, I have helped 1000 students to improve their grades and understanding of the material they are struggling with. I have experience with large group settings (40+), small group, online as well as lots of one-on-one tutoring. Since tutoring is an evolving field, I have expanded my knowledge with tutor level one and advanced tutor (level two) certification from the College Reading and Learning Association (CRLA). I am also very qualified and have many hours of training in both in-person and online tutoring from the University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee. I am pre-med and currently in grad school for public health. I tutor general chemistry, organic chemistry, biology (especially in genetics, anatomy, and microbiology), most physics courses, math (algebra, trigonometry, geometry, and pre-calc), ACT, GRE, DAT, MCAT, Advanced Placement, and other test prep.

Teaching Style

My teaching style is very unique. I have learned from various sources: professors, TA's, other tutors, and even from some of my students. No one person teaches the same way, which is why I try not to follow a blueprint. I try to adapt to the needs and strengths of my students, while trying to improve upon their weaker areas. Instead of trying to control the tutoring session, I aim to get the student involved as much as possible so that they remain interactive and are a part of the learning process instead of an observer.

My Hobbies

I love running. I have been running competitively since 8th grade. I walked on the track and the cross country team at UW-Milwaukee and have a successful 5 year career while attaining my bachelors and starting my masters. I also love biking. I like to get out and enjoy the city. I have a passion for medicine and aim to become an orthopedic surgeon.

I know all the bodily concepts very well as well as how to prepare for the different exams and material covered.
ASVAB Proficiency: Experienced
I scored a 96 on the ASVAB when I took it and have helped several students to increase their scores as well.
Bio Chemistry Proficiency: Experienced
Like chemistry and biology I have an in-depth knowledge of biochem that stems from my experiences with each subsection (chem and bio), while also having taken biochemistry. I don't tutor this subject as much since it is a higher level concept, but if you let me know what you'd like to go over. I can teach you anything you'd like to know.
Biology This is one of my top subjects! Proficiency: Expert
I have a bachelors in microbiology and know the material very in-depth from my years of study.
Chemistry This is one of my top subjects! Proficiency: Expert
I have been tutoring since 2008 in general chemistry and know the material very well. I have tutored several hundred college students at Marquette, UWM, and MSOE in general chemistry. I was the supplemental instructor for the course, meaning I made up a lesson plan and taught the material in conjunction with the professor. I have also tutored several high school advanced placement, honors, and advanced chemistry students over the years.

I scored a 14 in the physical science section (general chemistry and physics), 10 in verbal reasoning, and 12in the biological sciences (bio and organic chem). I know the concepts very well, especially the science (bio, physics, chem, and organic chem) portions which I scored highest in. I know what to look for in the verbal reasoning, but specifically can help focus your science section. I also have tutored for the DAT and can help you score better on that test.
