UT Austin Neuroscience Student offering science, math, and SAT/ACT tutoring for students of all grades

Methodology

For math and certain sciences (chemistry, physics, and organic chemistry), I teach the subject as a fun puzzle. Physics, math, and chemistry, especially organic chemistry, need consistent practice to master as learning the concept is not enough. For these classes, I teach the concept based on trusted online resources I have used to ace the class in my experience using a lecture based approach, and I present a practice problem to the student and solve it with them. I then supervise two problems as the student solves them, and then I present 3 problems for students to practice on their own. The only way to learn physics, chemistry, organic chemistry and math is for students to practice the skill on their own and become comfortable with it (like riding a bike). For biology and social studies, I lecture in a more traditional format, and I encourage students to ask questions as I go along. I also try to form a concept map on a whiteboard at the end of the lesson as this helps students learn a large quantity of new information and understand related concepts. These techniques have helped me earn an A in my difficult classes with ease in a busy schedule, and they will help your student too. Comfort with problem solving is the key to making "scary" classes easy.

Background

I am a neuroscience student at UT Austin. I have been formally and informally tutoring students since high school. In high school, I assisted students with math tutoring in calculus, precalculus, physics, chemistry, and algebra for the Mu Alpha Theta honor society. Science is my passion, and I live and breathe it. I actively conduct research at UT as I researched Streptomyces bacteria and antibiotic production in high school at UT, I advanced through the competitive NASA High School Aerospace Scholars to spent a week at the Johnson Space Center in junior year of high school, and I currently research at the Fish Behavior lab as a peer mentor at UT under Dr. Mary Ramsey. I also obtained a perfect score on my ACT science section with a score of 35 out of 36 overall. I also excel at math, writing, and college admissions (acceptances at UT Dallas (full ride), A&M, Trinity University, Duke University, and UT Austin.

Rates

Rate for online lessons : $12/h

Details

I will charge an additional dollar per hour for every 10 extra miles I drive above 20 miles from my home. I prefer webcam because of convenience and COVID precautions.
