« I’ve worked with Sydney Soentenga for more than a year in a professional capacity and have been impressed regularly with her tenacity, her leadership, and her follow-through. • No matter what you throw at Sydney, it will get done. She has a superhuman ability to manage competing projects and priorities. • Sydney is proactive and works independently. While most students her age require significant management time and specific instruction given, Sydney thrives when you tell her what the finished product should be and then empower her to get there. • Sydney is a great team player. There’s a reason so many students want to be part of the activities she leads. She’s a natural leader and creates an environment where others can thrive. »

College student in biology and chemistry to provide science tutoring to K-12

Methodology

I have experience providing help to college freshman in biology and chemistry. A two-sided conversation is the best way to teach the lecture material. I use a laboratory hands-on approach to solidify the concepts to kinesthetic learners. Teaching students to make their own visuals and outlines is a great study tip that is also applicable in the job field.

Background

I have been tutoring college freshman for 6 months. I have also taught leadership classes to 7th-9th graders for the past 3 summers. The students I have worked with leave feeling competent and confident in their test taking abilities and lab applications.
