Hello there! I have a BS in chemistry from UC Berkeley. I was then a high school teacher for 7 years. I taught physics, honors physics, general physical science and algebra. More recently I taught a full year of chemistry in a six week, all day summer session in Oakland. I was given no books or instructional materials so I created the entire curriculum from scratch. Otherwise I have worked to design and test software for the chemical industry. Occasionally I volunteered to teach or tutor math and science at various schools and at all levels (K-12) just for fun.
As you can see, I am exceptionally qualified to teach physical sciences and math. I do not merely tutor, that is, describe basic concepts and help students struggle through homework. I identify strengths and weaknesses and teach the concepts that the student does not grasp. I can supplement the starting material to go to a deeper level than most instructors can offer. I understand many different ways of thinking so that once I know students I can tailor the instruction to their learning styles as well learning levels.
Have a good day!
I taught high school algebra in the past. Since then I applied algebra regularly in the field of software development. I can explain both the theoretical and practical usages of algebra.
