Private tutor in Denver, CO
New College: The Honors College of Florida - BA, Biology - May, 2015
The unofficial motto of my recent alma mater, New College, is “That the natural state of the human spirit is Ecstatic Wonder! That we should never settle for less!”. I have pursued a rigorous education in the biological sciences while maintaining a broad foundation in the liberal arts. I have enjoyed three years of employment as a peer tutor in the Writing Resource Center at my college. During this time, I have cultivated an engaging tutoring style that is sensitive to academic anxieties, while seeking to impart enthusiasm and excitement in the student. Some quotes from anonymous feedback surveys sent out to my clients following tutoring sessions include: "I felt very engaged and we both shared a similar interest in my writing topic", "I have gained an insight into a method for organizing any paper, and the appropriate questions to ask myself to ensure there is good, fluid organizati[on]", "Lucia encouraged my participation by not putting words in my mouth; rather actively asked questions (and encouraged my pauses to think about them) to narrow the focus of my thesis".

I love Star Trek and other types of science fiction that explore intriguing ideas. I am also an avid reader and primarily read the classics. While I was at New College, I had free access to the art museum down the street and looking at art became my favorite pastime on days off. I consider Taylor Swift necessary for my survival. I am passionate about scientific outreach because I believe it necessary to incite change in our attitudes toward environmental stewardship.
