EducationRecent Temple University honors graduate with a BS in Neurobiology and a minor in Math. I received a distinction in my major and had a cumulative GPA of 3.97. I was awarded the Diamond Research Scholarship (2015), the Andrea Broad Biological Sciences Scholarship (2014), and the Dean's Scholarship (2013). I was also on the Dean's List for academic achievement every semester of attendance.
ExperienceI love tutoring because it is the perfect venue to address the individual needs of a student to help them develop a deeper understanding and appreciation for the material they cover in class. Students often become discouraged and disengaged in learning when the material doesn't make intuitive sense. My job is to help them understand the principles underlying what is being covered in class which enables them to construct a clear picture of how everything relates and circumvents the need for rote memorization. Once they fully grasp the fundamental concepts, they can transfer that knowledge to novel situations (ie homework or future sections) and, as the tutor, I get to see their confidence and interest grow (my ultimate goal for every student). These two elements are what drive active learning because they inspire self-motivation and academic curiosity. This positive approach to learning will help students flourish in college and succeed in any job field.
