My name is Johonna, and I may be the right person to help you succeed!
I recently graduated from Southern Utah University with a B.S. in Biology, a B.I.S. in Agriculture Science and a minor in Chemistry. During my time at SUU I was a mentor/tutor for a program called SANS. Working with this program I gained experience tutoring in a variety of different subjects, learning about what approaches to learning work for different people, and understanding the difficulties that a lot of students face. I also spent multiple semesters being a grader for Chemistry classes where I learned what type of answers teachers are looking for and how to locate the root of students' problems.
I really enjoy using multiple different methods when tutoring. This might include diagrams on a whiteboard, oral questions to ensure understanding and, when applicable, using bodily kinesthetics to help visualize a concept. I have used all these methods previously and have enjoyed seeing which methods work for different students.
My time at college, both as a student and a tutor, has given me a foundation of knowledge in specific areas as well as methods to be a successful student.
Look forward to hearing from you!
Algebra is the beginnings of unknowns! It includes figuring out how to distribute, simplify and solve problems with unknown variables.
Biology is the study of life. In fact, when learning about biology you can directly see real life applications. However, for most students the difficulty is tying all the information together. By helping to put the pieces of the puzzle together I am confident that it will increase your enjoyment (or at least appreciation) for the biological sciences.
I often tell people who are taking chemistry that it is like rolling together a math, science, and foreign language class. It's tough! The biggest problem I have seen is students not taking the time to understand the fundamentals. Once the fundamentals are understood then chemistry can be very straight forward.
I completed a two semester series of organic chemistry. I performed in the 87th percentile on the American Chemical Society National exam for University Level Organic Chemistry students. I have knowledge in nomenclature, reactions and synthesis.
I can't stress enough how important pre-algebra is. It sets the stage for all the future math you will be doing. Don't let you/your child get behind in this class! It has the potential to make math a positive experience if learned right!
During my high school years I was in a Business Academy (CIBACS) where emphasis was put on professional business presentations. In addition I have presented multiple times during my college career. This has included presenting undergraduate research, business proposals, and research papers.
My time as a university student as well as my time being a tutor/academic mentor has given me insight into what study techniques work for different people. I often find that when tutoring the main issue is that the student doesn't know the most efficient and effective way to study. Every person is different. Usually, the first time meeting with a student I would run through a variety of techniques to see what works.
Amazing chemistry tutor — We have worked with a few different chem tutors for our daughter. Bar none, Joey is THE BEST! Our daughter always raves about how easy she is to work with, and always shows an improvement in her studies and grades after working with Joey. Thanks Joey! ...
