I am a Biology major at the University of Florida who has taken all the classes you need help with. In high school I took over 15 college level classes and graduated in the top 3% of my graduating class. I also was a tutor for Kumon diring my senior year in high school. This gives me a specialized skillset in helping you pass your class because I have excelled in that curriculum myself and can teach you the exact tips and tricks you need to pass your tests.
I truly enjoy the feeling of helping people figure out how to solve problems themselves. In my past jobs as a tutor, there was no feeling better than the satisfaction I got when my students went from struggling to being able to solve complex algebra problems by themselves with ease.
