Tutoring Style and/or Experience

Hi, my name is Trish. I graduated from Drexel University with a Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Engineering, concentrating in Biomaterials and Tissue Engineering. I am proficient in Math (up to Calculus 4), Science (Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Physiology, Cell Biology, Molecular Biology, Laboratory Techniques and Technical Writing) and English (Essay Writing and Grammar). Through participating in a vigorous engineering curriculum, I learned to critically think about these subjects and how they relate to each other, which I use to tutor and help students understand. I also aim to instill critical thinking techniques when teaching, allowing students to move away from memorization and towards logical thinking and problem solving, which in turn helps them retain the information and score better on exams. I have a few years of experience tutoring students from elementary to college age. When tutoring I try to incorporate a comfortable and fun environment to promote learning. I feel that the more comfortable one is when learning, the more beneficial the lesson will be. I try to build my students' confidence in order for them to feel comfortable asking questions and communicating their weaknesses. In this way I try to direct my teaching to each student's learning style and learning rate. I also try to promote good organization and study techniques, which I feel are important in order to focus one's attention and provide for clearer thinking. I am confident that my experience will be well suited for your goals. Please feel free to contact me with any questions. I hope to hear from you soon and help you in your success.
