If you select this option, WyzAnt will ask interested tutors to contact you by email if they are able to help. A maximum of five different tutors will email you and none of your personal information, including your email address, will be released.

I have a BS in chemistry with a concentration in mathematics from Bucknell University, an MS in organic chemistry with a concentration in mathematics from Case-Western Reserve University and an MBA in finance and management planning from Northwestern University.

In addition, I have had five years of German and was a member of Toastmasters International for more than three years.

I've had my own business and medical writing firm for more than 30 years now and have been involved in tutoring ESL students in the Buckeye area for several years.

Over the years, I've discovered, from talking with many students and parents, that most learning difficulties stem from fear.

"I know I'll never be able to get this."
"Math/science/a foreign language is always hard."
"My brother-sister-friend always had problems with this subject."
"If I have to make a speech, I'll die!"
"I couldn't write a paper to save my life."

I don't teach you to do a math problem, I show you how to look at the process of solving the problem. I teach you how to approach the solution. Once you learn the process, you can apply that same process to every math problem without fear.

It's like painting a room. Once you learn how to approach the job and determine what needs to be done and in what order - in other words, once you learn the process of painting - you can paint any room.

The same strategy applies to science, writing, foreign languages and, YES!, even public speaking!

You can learn to love learning, and you'll see your grades improve.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Algebra 1

My mathematics background includes algebra I and II, trigonometry, plane and solid geometry, precalculus and calculus and differential equations.

Algebra 2

I have a math minor that includes courses in algebra, trigonometry, geometry, differential equations, calculus and quantum mechanics.

Organic Chemistry

I have a master of science degree in organic chemistry from Case-Western Reserve University and worked as a synthetic organic chemist for a major pharmaceutical company, preparing radioactive drugs for clinical studies.

Reading

A professional medical/business writer for more than three decades, I know how to research a topic, plan and outline an article or story and tailor it to a specific audience. Equally importantly, I have a solid understanding of good grammar, syntax, spelling and punctuation.

Writing

A freelance writer with more than three decades of experience, I understand the necessity for good grammar, syntax, spelling and punctuation. I can teach students how to pick a subject, do the research, focus on the essentials and develop the story in a logical way.
