I'm currently a student at Georgia Tech pursuing a degree in chemical engineering. Over the years I have learned problem solving strategies, test taking skills, and study skills. What works for one student might not necessarily work for another, and I am dedicated to helping students figure out what works best for them and how they can be successful. In addition, I have 3 years of tutoring experience and have tutored chemistry, AP chemistry, biology, and AP biology to high school students.
The best thing about tutoring is the moment when the topic finally clicks. School can be overwhelming and challenging, and I enjoy helping others figure out what works for them, how they can be successful, and how they can grow and continuously develop their skills.
Mathis tutored me in Algebra 1 my sophomore year. Not only did she assist me in improving my overall grade, but she helped me to understand the material in a way that I could remember. Usually tutors only go over the material you are learning every session, but Mathis made sure that we touched on the prior units too. She wanted to guarantee that I understood the material. She was also very flexible when it came to scheduling, which helped a lot since I was always busy with sports and etc. Mathis was definitely one of the best tutors I’ve had yet.
Wanted to make sure I completely understood concepts. Was willing to put in the work that it took for me to understand, whether that meant more work for her or not :)
When working with a new student, I typically ask them where they are now, where they want to be in the future, what their biggest struggles are currently, and what they would like to accomplish through tutoring.
I am currently a chemical engineering major at georgia tech and have taken a variety of chemistry, biology, and math classes. (Including: general chemistry I & II, biology, chemical processing principles, biochemistry I , organic chemistry I, genetics, linear algebra, and calculus I & II). In addition to the classes I've taken at Tech, I also have 4 years of tutoring experience.
I started tutoring when I was a freshman in high school as a volunteer because my biology teacher asked me to do it. I quickly fell in love with it, and tutored many students over the years.
Most of my experience is with high school students taking math, chemistry, english, and biology. I have tutored AP courses as well, including AP Chemistry, AP Calculus, and AP Biology.
Find someone who is approchable, who you will feel comfortable working with, and someone that will accomodate whatever you need.
What are your biggest areas of struggle, including content and study habits? What are your goals and what do you hope to accomplish within the time you have with your tutor? What study habits or test taking skills are your weaknesses and what do you want to improve upon?
