EducationUniversity of South Florida Honors College Graduate
BS in Biology, BA in Psychology
ExperienceMy ACT students typically increase 5 ACT points.
I took classes at the University of South Florida and got my certification as a tutor last year. I have tutored for many years for many different types of students in diverse subjects. I have tutored Honors College students (along with other university students), special needs students, and international students. I started tutoring in high school for younger children and continued in college.
I enjoy the material I have learned and helping others understand it too. I find different ways to explain the material so that the student has the best understanding he/she can have. I am patient and flexible. I like starting my sessions by making a plan that is specific to the student's needs.
Biology, Chemistry, Science:
I received my BS in biology with a concentration in cell and molecular biology. These subjects were the bulk of what I helped university students with, but I can also tutor high school level science.
I received my BA in psychology this past spring have have had an intense interest in the subject since my first psychology class. I continue to learn about the newest discoveries in psychology through my research as a cognitive neuroscience researcher at the University of South Florida.
I came up with lesson plans to teach university international students to speak English through the INTO USF program. I also taught English to Italian children in Naples, Italy for 3 months when I traveled there.
Piano and Music Theory:
Music has always been one of my passions and, therefore, has led me to excel in it. I started giving piano lessons in middle school and continue to study piano and music theory. My most recent piano class had only 7 students (all upper-class piano majors).
Vietnamese and Italian:
I studied in intensive Vietnamese and Italian programs when I traveled to Vietnam and Italy. Immersing myself in the culture helped me learn the languages more quickly.
My score on the SAT was a 1310 (not including the writing section) so I understand the material well and can help others prepare for the exams.
Math has always been one of my strongest subjects. I started tutoring other students in math when I was in middle school and continue through college.
Study skills and Organization:
As a tutor, I have learned to set attainable goals for my students that help push them to do better in their subjects. I believe in teaching students to make these goals themselves so that they will not need someone to help them in the future.
HobbiesI love sports, playing music, and I'm up for new experiences and adventures! I have traveled around Europe and to Vietnam and enjoyed learning the languages while there. Recently, I've been ballroom dancing, painting, and helping local directors make movies. I just like getting to know other people and having a good time :)
