Duncan Reid

     I have over five years of experience tutoring high school students in science, math, and English and for the SAT and ACT. I have a special passion for biology and the sciences and was an undergraduate tutor and a teaching assistant for two biology courses during graduate school. I enjoy working with students to demystify standardized tests and help them achieve their educational goals. I also seek to make my subject tutoring relevant and engaging.
