Human Biology major at Stanford University offering Biology and general science lessons in the San Jose area!

Methodology

I believe that because Biology is very systems oriented, testing yourself on the material over and over again is the best way to learn and what I would be helping you perfect. I can adjust well to the needs of my students and am happy to incorporate the strategies you find help you the best, while also introducing some new skills to see what clicks with you.

Background

Hi! My name is Nicki and I'm a senior at Stanford University majoring in Human Biology with a concentration in Neuroscience and Biomechanics. In high school I took AP Bio, AP Calc BC, and AP Spanish and received a 5 on all 3 tests. I have focused particularly on Biology in college, but would be happy to tutor any of those subjects. I am Division 1 athlete at Stanford and went through the entire recruiting process. I would be happy to discuss recruiting strategies to help your chances of connecting with a college coach.
