I have many qualities that make me a great tutor. The first quality is a broad science background. As a biology major at a liberal arts college, I have taken courses in not just biology, but also chemistry and physics. In addition to my biology major, I also have a minor in mathematics. As far as tutoring experience, I tutored for my college’s center for academic excellence for one and a half years in biology and mathematics. For mathematics, I mainly tutored students taking Calculus I and College Algebra. For biology, I mostly tutored students taking General Biology, Molecular Genetics, and Cellular and Molecular Biology. As part of the mathematics club in high school, I tutored middle school students.
Not only do I have the broad knowledge in the sciences, but I have also had experience making science understandable to non-science audiences. One example of this was through my research internships. At the end of each research experience, the interns and I presented our research and findings to an audience that not only contained other science colleagues, but also to people with little science background such as children and grandparents. Another experience that dealt with non-science crowds was elementary students. My biology club, Parker After Dark, teamed up with a future teacher’s organization for science night to teach elementary kids science. As part of one of my REU internships, one of my responsibilities was to mentor a Chicago High School student from the program “College First”. I taught her molecular genetics in person, and I supplemented her learning with articles and videos.
