Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new student?
When working with new students, I like to begin by getting to know them so both parties are comfortable. Following, I try to access how much the student knows in order to provide the best assistance before beginning work.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
Currently I am a Junior at Florida International University working towards a B.S. in Biology, Minor in Chemistry. I work as a General Chemistry tutor at FIU. The main aspects of this job includes: assisting students in interactive worksheets in class, and leading private/group tutoring sessions, which I have been doing for one year.
I have completed over 90 of my 120 credits, and below list the pertinent class I have completed.
General Chemistry 1 & 2
Biology 1 & 2
