I'd like my students to obtain the best possible outome in thier tutoring session. Using different approaches catered to the student, it is my hope that the information will be relayed in a manner that is easy to remember and attain. Coming from an inner city community myself, I also work with students in underserved areas. Working together, I'd like you, the student, to have a positive, enjoyable, and memorable learning experience. I have a Bachelor's degree in Biology from Dillard University and I am currently in a Master's program in Biology at Texas Southern Univerity. I am also a medical scribe so I can aid with medical terminology courses. I have 2 years of experience in teaching Biology and Lab Coursework to College Freshmen.
I enjoy when a student is finally able to realize they can do what they thought they couldn't. I love helping students recognize their star potential :)
Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new student?
My typical process for working with a new student is to first gauge their knowledge of the specific subject they need help with. I also ask if they enjoy any creative endeavors or hobbies such as music, art, or dance so that I may relate the subjects to things that the the student will enjoy.
