Mathematics

colin kelley

Colin – I love tutoring and working with students and have held many different jobs related to working with children.  I love teaching math and concrete logic.  I think many people struggle with math because they don’t believe they are “math-brained” and I want to help these people tap into their inner logic!  The intimacy of one-on-one or small-group tutoring really appeals to me too.  I mediate daily to escape the wrath of stress, egoism, and negative thinking and to realize my full potential to form deeper connections and help make this world a better place.  Some hobbies I enjoy are snowboarding, running, and riding BMX bikes.

Amanda – has a Bachelor of Science degree in Applied Mathematics from Colorado State University and a Masters of Business Administration from Regis University. She enjoys helping students learn their lessons better, and also all the new things she gets to learn from her students. She is most effective at math classes such as algebra, trigonometry, calculus, and combinatorics, but she is willing to try her hand at any STEM subject

 

 

 

Biology/ Multi-subject Tutors

Ian – My approach to tutoring is very much centered upon helping the student to come to their own understanding.  By connecting the ideas presented on their syllabus and notes we are able to forge an understanding between what the professor intends and how the student integrates that information.  I have tutored for college level Philosophy, Chemistry, Biology, Botany, Genetics, and Microbiology for the past three years; with numerous repeat students for harder subjects.

The breadth of my studies was not limited to a single field; I took every class in Japanese offered, worked for a Psychology minor, and earned two degrees, Philosophy (Existential Ethics focus) and Biology (Botany focus).    I have worked with students and teacher’s for whom English is not their native tongue, helping bridge the language gaps between English and the Sciences.  I translate my name in Japanese to read “偉案”; this reads as the “Greatness of Ideas,” a bridge between people and concepts.  Richard Dawkins’ concept of memes, provides a unique perspective of Ideas as ‘living organisms’.  My drive is always to push myself and others around me to understand the importance of Ideas and how they influence us; and in turn, how we can influence them.

Grant D. Orvis, Ph.D. acquired his B.S. in Zoology from Arizona State University and his Ph.D. in Molecular Genetics and Reproductive Biology from The University of Texas-Houston. To date, Dr. Orvis has authored seven peer-reviewed articles in the fields of Reproduction and Brain Development at The University of Florida, M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston and Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York City. For the past two years, Dr. Orvis has taught Biology, Molecular and Cellular Biology, Genetics and Developmental Biology at The City College of New York. His main goal is to help students succeed in any Biological subject. To learn more, feel free to email and obtain evaluations from Dr. Orvis’ previous students.

Testimonials

An email from the father of a University of Colorado Boulder student who had her grade point average go up three letter grades over the course of the semester:

“Hello [tutor from MyBoulderTutor.com],
My deep appreciation for your kindness, academic professionalism and mentoring of my daughter, ….  She extends her thanks for your integral assistance in her grade of  A on the final exam and A on her term paper.  She could not have done it without you and we are looking forward to your help next year if you have time with your busy schedule.
Your mentoring goes far beyond the accumulation of knowledge and will remain with your students throughout their lives as an example of caring, self-confidence and integrity.
With profound thanks,
Dr. …”
