Bachelor's in Biology graduate offering high school and college tutoring online and in Cary, NC

Methodology

My tutoring style is individual, I love to get to know a student and see how they learn best. I love drawing out diagrams because that's what has helped me in the past too! Practice makes perfect, and the ideal learning scenario would involve a student eventually being able to "teach" me what they were once struggling with.

Background

I have a Bachelor's degree in Biology with a minor in English from Wake Forest University and have completed one year of graduate coursework in Molecular Biology from Indiana University. I've conducted molecular biology research in college focusing on plant growth and I've had tutoring experience in high school and college in Biology.
