MichealI'm Michael, and I have nine years of experience as a science tutor. I love teaching, and I believe I am good at it. I started out in tutoring by helping students in classes I was intimately familiar with at Assumption College. I gain great enjoyment from helping students work through learning obstacles and understand biology and chemistry. As a senior in college, I had the opportunity to tutor immigrant students. This help me develop my skills in connecting with students and relating to them, even if our backgrounds were very different. My tutoring specialty is the sciences, and I enjoy helping students get excited about learning these subjects. I can tutor students in biology at the high school and college level, chemistry at the high school and college level, microbiology, and beginning science topics as well. In my free time, I enjoy graphic design and lacrosse.

KellyI'm Kelly, and I recently finished my degrees in biology and psychology from Boston College, where I graduated cum laude. I'm planning to attend dental school. My experience as a tutor of math and biology has shown me how important it is to get to know each student individually. Each student's learning style is different, so I approach the material based on their preferred style. I believe that helping students develop problem-solving skills is the best way for them to learn. Instead of having students memorize formulas, I help them think about the problem and guide them as a figure out how to solve it. I'm enthusiastic, friendly, and patient. I help students feel comfortable learning and asking questions during our sessions. This help students stay engaged and interested in the topic, and also helps them feel confident in their understanding of the material.

KaylaI'm a tutor who loves learning, loves teaching, and utilizes an approach that is patient, amicable, and determined. I have four years of experience as a writing tutor at the college level, where I helped students develop writing skills and essays in a wide range of subjects. I focused on philosophy and English literature as an undergraduate, and I developed strong skills for close reading and logic. When I tutor students, I feel that I must get them engaged and learning. We don't just read or try to memorize things. Instead, my sessions encourage open communication and fun. I believe every student can achieve success in learning, and I believe that fun is one of the most important ways to ensure that happens. When students are interested in a topic, they become more engaged and more motivated to learn it. I encourage my students to find their own topics of interest in things that they want to learn. My goal is to help students succeed, and I know that their goal is success as well. I believe with determination and hard work, students can be successful. I'm looking forward to helping students learn to write better essays, gain a command of English grammar and syntax, and understand literature.
