Tutor profile: Alycia E.
Pre-PA college graduate with quality healthcare experience.
Hello! I recently graduated with a Biology degree from UC Irvine. A fun fact about myself is that my favorite subjects are Human Anatomy and Writing! As an aspiring physician assistant, I am currently looking for patient care opportunities while also pursuing my passion of tutoring-- I believe teaching is the highest form of mastering a subject.
I haven't been in a tutoring position, but I grew up on the other side of the table-- as a tutoree. I know how to distinguish between good and just plain terrible teaching methods, and I plan on implementing what I've learned in this job position. Plus, I've been in the public education system for more than 15 years, so I can say for sure I have mastered multiple academic subjects.
