Biology Graduate with University Level Teaching Experience and a love for Science!

Methodology

I have been tutoring since I was in high school, and I try to make sure that my lessons are engaging and fun as well as informative. During my time as a teaching assistant in undergrad, I worked in an "Active Learning" setting, which encouraged students to connect with the material on a deeper level by incorporating activities and projects into the curriculum.

I am best suited to tutor high school students in all levels of biology, including AP and Honors.

Background

I am an Epidemiology graduate student with experience in biology research, field work, and university level teaching. During my time as an undergrad, I was a TA for a Development and Physiology biology class which has equipped me with a wide range of biology knowledge. In addition to general biology, I have taken courses in genetics, chemistry, zoology, epidemiology, evolution, and other life science related courses.
