I took AP Chemistry, AP Physics, and AP Calculus in high school and scored a 5 on each subject, along with 770, 770, & 800 on their respective SAT II's.
Although one needs to memorize some tools (formulas and equations) in order to be able to solve a problem, learning where that formula comes from and how to derive it is the key in learning. This is how I have always taught myself, and this is how I have always helped others.
I graduated with honors from the University of Chicago with a BS in Biochemistry and a BA in Chemistry.
I am fluent in Farsi (Persian), Turkish, English, and I am teaching myself Arabic.

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.
