Straight-A student with 5 years of tutoring experience offering virtual Biology help sessions

Methodology

I can tutor high school and college students. I like to take a collaborative approach to tutoring by working through problems and questions with students. I can also help with general concept review in more of a lecture style if that is preferred. I can be very flexible in my methods, and I am always willing to adjust how I explain concepts. I typically make extensive use of virtual whiteboards and the Zoom platform.

Background

I am a junior studying Biology with a concentration in Neuroscience at the University of Richmond. I started tutoring in high school and have been a peer tutor at UR for about 3 years now. I have tutored dozens (I would estimate about 80) of students in introductory biology as well as Calculus I and II. I am strong in the areas of experimental methods and design, data analysis and statistics, and scientific writing. I have received great reviews and thanks from students and from professors whose students have worked with me.

Rates

Rate for online lessons : $12/h

Details

Cancellation within 24 hours of the scheduled appointment may result in a fee. (Because I take time to prepare for my sessions!)

Kristen is a phenomenal tutor who helped me excel in my upper-level biology course! She understood where I was having difficulties and had the best methods to help me learn the subject matter at hand. I recommend her to anyone struggling with biology!
