Hi, my name is Noah, I am a sophomore biology student at UNC with minors in chemistry and sociology. I have a 3.7 GPA and received a A in General Chemistry, Organic Chemistry, General Biology and Molecular Biology. These are really tough courses where I excelled far above my peers as I have a true passion for the natural sciences. I really enjoy helping students get excited about science courses and am so excited to help students learn about chemistry and biology.
I firmly believe that by studying the natural sciences you are developing a broad range of very applicable life skills. By learning scientific inquiry you are learning how to become an innovator. Whether you decide to pursue a career in anything from business to the arts, you are developing skills necessary to spot problems in your area of expertise and work to fix these problems.

I believe that all students have a very good idea of what content they are and are not comfortable with. It is important to first figure out where one's weaknesses are. Next, we must work together to develop a plan for tackling content that is especially difficult. These plans often rely on time with me to go over the content, but time spent running practice problems is often key to fully understanding the material. I hope to find the right mix of reviewing material and running practice problems in order to improve testing performance.
I am currently a sophomore Biology student with a Chemistry minor. I received a 5 on the AP Biology exam, and an A in general biology, molecular biology, general chemistry, and organic chemistry (1st sem). which are all courses I feel competent at teaching. I am an active member of the National Biology Honors Society and am involved in molecular biology research with Dr. Amy Gladfelter at UNC.
My standard rate is 20$/hr.
I began teaching in October of 2020, a friend of a friend kind of situation. I began teaching AP Chemistry and had significant improvement in testing performance with the student. I really enjoyed the experience of getting to discuss something I find very intriquing. I hope to spread my love of the natural sciences to my students!
Since I am new to tutoring I have only worked with one high school student taking AP Chemistry. I hope to work with as diverse a group of students as possible so that I may gain perspectives on learning from many different sources.
In December a friend and I hiked Humphrey's Peak in Arizona. It was a very challenging and cold experience. We enjoyed some really beautiful sights and met a nice couple on the way up. The couple had a large German Sheppherd who was wearing little leather shoes to protect him from the snow. It was an amazing day, and at the end of it we ate the best mexican food at Agave in Flagstaff. We ended the day in our tents which we pitched near a river in Sedona.
I would say, "hire me. I am very passionate about what I teach, I can explain things in a way that often takes place as a conversation, and I am very flexible with price!"
Students should have a very good idea of what their strengths and weaknesses are. The best use of our time is honing in on the content you find challenging, and reinforcing the content you feel competent with. Students should also have a good understanding of what kind of teaching methods work best for them. Myself, for example, am a very visual learner, it helps me to see diagrams and pictures.
