Math tutor in Kahului, HI with a Bachelor's of Science in Biology.

Methodology

I have a Bachelor's degree in biology with emphasis in cell and molecular biology, chemistry minor, and an Associate of Arts degree with emphasis in Fine Art/Studio Art. I tutor middle school through college freshman levels.

My teaching method is not "one size fits all." I endeavor to meet students where they are and work to understand their needs and their level, and work with them from there.

Background

I have tutored off an on throughout my academic career for 15 years, ranging from middle school students, tutoring my sisters in middle school through college, to leading discussion groups and study sessions with my peers in college for math, biology, and chemistry.
