Pre-med Student offering tutoring services in all subjects including Math, Biology, Chemistry, and Spanish with 6 years of experience

Methodology

I tend to base my tutoring techniques on the individual student. Everyone learns at a different pace and a different style, so it is important to me to maximize a student's understanding through their own style of learning. I make sure to provide as much support as I can offer by tailoring my lesson structure to the student themself.

Background

I am a Pre-Med student attending University of California, San Diego and am majoring in Human Biology. I have been tutoring students of all ages (5-19) for 6 years and am adept in teaching many different subjects such as Mathematics, Chemistry, Biology, History, Spanish, etc. Most students I have tutored have told me they have an increased understanding of the subject matter they were struggling in, feel more confident, and receive higher grades on exams
