Recent graduate offering biology lessons in Los Angeles with 5+ years of experience!

Methodology

As a tutor, I strive to understand your strengths and weaknesses in order to better assist you. I like to use a similar approach as one of my past chemistry tutors. After getting know each other and what you desire to get out of our time together we will move into the course work. If the subject matter as a whole is confusing to you, I will try a different method of teaching you the material. After you have gained your footing with the material, we will practice doing problems you might encounter on the homework or exam. I am here for you, so let me know what you need and we'll work to get you there!

Background

I have a bachelors degree in biology with a minor in Spanish. I have assisted not only numerous classmates with this subject matter, but many family members as well. I have experience teaching grade-school children basic English, math, and science as well. My knowledge of biology and other science courses started doing my high school career in the international bachelorette program. I not only know a lot about the sciences, but I love biology and anything to do with health in the human body!
