Private tutor in Houston, TX
Graduate from Rice University in sociology and biochemistry/cell biology
As a recent graduate in sociology and biochemistry/cell biology from Rice University, I gained tutoring experience through my roles as a transfer student mentor, as a tutor for athletes on campus, and as a teaching assistant of an upper level course. I can help you with SAT and PSAT prep. My own experience taking an SAT prep course for the SAT exposed me to different styles of teaching for this exam. I prefer an interactive approach where students tell me what might help them understand common testing questions; I then mold my teaching methods to fit their expectations. I also offer assistance with study skills. I like to personalize study skills to an individual's strengths and weaknesses. I begin with a simple model of daily written time management, and then continue to develop study strategies based on students' mode of learning (visual, auditory) as well as concentration abilities. Lastly, I can help students from elementary to college level with improving their writing skills, whether for school or for college admissions essays. I have experience writing research reports, business proposals, creative writing assignments, academic analytical expository essays, literature reviews, and an independent honors thesis. In order to teach students strong writing skills, I emphasize creating outlines before writing, using the active voice, backing up assertions with evidence, and using clear transitions to achieve better flow. My technique focuses on a step-wise revision process that allows students to progress at a natural pace, rather than remodeling an entire piece at once. I am flexible with scheduling a tutor session in the Houston area, so please feel free to contact me with requests. I look forward to hearing from you!
