Qualifications & Experience

Since I was little, I've loved helping others learn. I greatly valued education and I have seen what it can do for people. Because of this, I strive to stay ahead of the game as I go above and beyond to learn new skills. To help reinforce these skills and to benefit the community as a whole, I spread this knowledge to others. For years I have tutored students in subjects ranging from math to chemistry to agriculture and music. Nothing ever seemed too far-fetched for me to learn and teach. I gained a lot of recognition in my hometown for my efforts. Everyone knew who to ask if they had a question. I either had an answer or I'd find an answer. My influence got to the point where several teachers allowed to tutor/teach during their class periods because they knew that I could get the message across quite well. It was a lot of fun to be able to help so many students at once in an experience that most people never receive.

Today I am a chemistry and horticulture double major with a minor in mathematics. I love these subjects immensely and I tutor quite frequently on campus. I've had dozens of students come to me for help already. I love seeing their GPA's increase. Hearing their thanks gives me the satisfaction of knowing that I did something right for someone.

My methods of tutoring include visualization as well as tying lessons into previous classes. By doing that, the material makes more sense to students. There quickly becomes less memorization of abstract material and more critical thinking on knowledge they already have. When I am done tutoring, students have a better understanding of the subject to the point where they see applications of it in their every day lives. That excited me more than anything. A lot of teachers don't inspire the students by telling them the applications of the material. By inspiring students, I create a community of learners that is more dedicated to achieve greater heights in their education. I have seen my students go out of their way to learn new things and come back to me to discuss what they have learned with excitement on their faces. There honestly is no greater thrill.

As a fun addition, a lot of the material I teach ends up being used by the people I work with in their own homes and personal lives. My background in horticulture has allowed me to help train avid gardeners using horticulture, chemistry, and biology. My background in chemistry has inspired budding chemists who use their knowledge for a variety of things to include anything from extractions to making their own cleaning solutions. My teachings in chemistry and biology have even taught people to be skeptical of health claims made by the media that don’t follow basic biology or chemistry. These subjects are very much a part of our lives and I love showing that there are actually applications to our studies.

I look forward to meeting with you in the future. I hope I can help you achieve higher academic success.
