Private tutor in Leesburg, VA
University of Virginia - BS, Environmental Sciences
I am a graduate of the University of Virginia, where I earned a B.S. in Environmental Sciences. My goal is to go on to dental school and become a dentist. I have been tutoring other students since I was in high school. I am a great resource for math students at all levels, from Elementary Math all the way up to AP Calculus AB, as well as many science subjects, like Chemistry, Life Sciences, Ecology, Biology, etc. I've also taken advanced courses in Atmospheric Science and Meteorology, and really enjoy tutoring the subjects to students who get as excited bout them as I do! While I adhere to the individual approach, recognizing that each student has their own learning style, I also emphasize the importance of ensuring that concepts are introduced and well understood before moving on to practice. It is a little more slow going in the beginning, but I find that taking the time up front to learn the "why" of a concept builds a better understanding, better retention, and better test scores in the end. On my own time, I like to read and watch movies. I was in the fencing club in college, and still like to fence from time to time.
