I have been tutoring high school math and science for 10 years. I have taught at a local high school for 8+ years. I have taught Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Earth Science, Biology, Biology Honors, Chemistry, Physics and Zoology. I am a patient person and I try to understand each student's needs and what they will need to be most successful. I understand the importance of truly teaching the material so that the student will be able to apply the knowledge to new, unique problems that are common to exams and quizzes.
