Private tutor in Chicago, IL
University of Illinois at Chicago - Current Undergrad, Biochemistry and Pre-Med
Originally from Rwanda -where my education was in French from the elementary school-, I became a refugee while I was at the very beginning of my college studies in sciences. I spent two years at DePaul University studying a diverse range of subjects, but sciences. My passion for sciences and techonology, in general, and medicine, in particular, took me to the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC). At UIC, I am working towards a bioengineering bachelor’s degree, along with a pre-med track. My passion is not only limited on acquiring scientific knowledge: my passion expands into dispensing that knowledge too. My teaching and tutoring experience dates back in 2003, where I worked as a teacher at primary school and then at high school. In addition, in 2008 I founded an organization, Green Solidarity, whose one of the working fields is to help academically struggling saplings. Furthermore, I personally worked as a tutor for primary school finalists. If I can extend on the subject of tutoring, I also tutor my classmates at college, in particular, in Math, Biology and Chemistry. Remarkably, some of my teaching assistants do not hesitate to ask me to explain to them some areas of the subject in question they do not fully master. This experience and cognitive base make me a suitable tutor in Chemistry, Biology, Math and French. All of these four subjects make part of my favorite subjects. Biology is my favorite because is my one of my main focuses. Chemistry is the inseparable companion of Biology. Mathematics is the basis of every science, since it all requires mathematical reasoning. And then French makes part of the list, because of my keen interest for French literature. My teaching philosophy spins around the concept of ameliorating the cognitive capacities of the students at every session. I implement this philosophy through a pattern of steps making use of the active methodology. I mean to place the student at center of the learning process. My student is always in a position allowing the access to the steering wheel, where we roll together through the course in a way making the student discover the direction by him/herself. This intellectual training makes the student exempt of loopholes in the learning process and takes the student at the height of thinking outside the book and devising the next level. The academia is not my sole domain for enrichment. I have a close hobby for reading novels, for pressing piano keys, for strumming guitar strings, for jotting down a couple of poetic verses, for countryside exploration, for playing soccer and basketball, as well as a slight touch for the culinary.
