Pre-Medical (microbiology major) student who has lab and college-level tutoring experience, plus, a little sister in high school!

Methodology

I've tutored organic chemistry and various introductory to advanced biology courses. In the moment of tutoring, the tutee, is exercising their working memory (an extension of short-term memory that pulls from long-term memory). Part of working memory is the visuospatial sketchpad, a cognitive tool that when exercised enhances a students ability spatially manipulate complex images/ideas. For any of the sciences, spatial comprehension is essential. Therefore, when I teach, I rely heavily on drawings and schematics, while additionally, emphasizing the etymology behind nomenclature.

Background

I'm a young, aspiring scientist, medical provider and educator. My journey has been exciting, I'm a registered EMT, I've taught various subjects, I reserached Valley Oak trees and now I study diabetes as an honors student. I volunteer at various clinics/events, scribe for an ER doctor and, pre-COVID, I worked at a nursing home caring for the developmentally disabled. On a personal note, I adore science fiction, fantasy games/stories/movies, football (Saints fan) and most of all, my family.

Rates

Rate for online lessons : $11/h

Details

AP level biology/chemistry courses, which may take additionally preparation on my behalf, will be tutored at 12$ an hour.
