Academic Ambition Tutoring
My service provides a non-judgmental learning environment full of patience, knowledge, and caring, and has done so for eight years. Students are often too intimidated to ask their teachers questions, and nowadays teachers might not even have the time to do so. As a full-time tutor, I have the ability to create a space where students, regardless of their ability, can get the help they need to succeed.
That is not to say that I feed students answers or coddle them. In sessions with me, students improve problem-solving and study skills that they need to not only do well on exams, but to truly understand the subject. My goal is to empower my students to critically think on their own and I live for those "lightbulb moments" where they understand something they didn't before. Those moments nurture not just good grades, but a love of science in my students that leads them to wonderful future careers.
My specialty is students that need high-intensity support, whether that's due to the subject matter being difficult or a disability like ASD or ADHD.
I offer tutoring on many standardized tests and their related subjects. This includes the MCAT, PCAT, GRE, ASVAB, SAT, AP Courses, High-School level STEM Courses, and Persuasive Writing. I try my hardest to do right by my students, and I consider the biggest mark of my success as a tutor to be when my students have the skills to not need me anymore.
My qualifications include teaching experience at University of Hawai'i, tutoring experience at Stockton University (where I received a Bachelor's of Science degree in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology), and college admissions counseling experience at C2 Education. I attended University of Hawai'i for Developmental and Reproductive Biology, however, I switched from a lab-based career goal to an educational one, which is why I am now devoting myself fully to tutoring. I am currently continuing my accreditation process at the National Tutoring Association and switching my graduate degree to Scientific Communication to further refine my craft.
