Do you find yourself struggling to understand science
? Find your instructor confusing? Wondering just what complex numbers are good for?
Beginning to think these subjects are just too hard, that you will never ‘get it’?
Don’t worry, I can help. Most people can master science and math subjects with a bit of help – they just need motivation, explanations from someone familiar with the material, and a bit of practice. I can provide all three.
I can also help students figure out how to succeed in college. Having taught at high schools and university, I have observed the public system and have seen why students have trouble transitioning from high school to university. Student success is largely dependent upon study skills
and understanding academic culture, such as knowing one is supposed to bug professors during office hours. Mastering courses such as chemistry
helps students develop these ‘college survival’ skills.
About me: I received my PhD in chemistry (spectroscopy) from the University of California (go Bears!). I am married and have two children, one of whom is in elementary school and benefits from my being a stay at home parent. Tutoring students gives me the satisfaction of watching students blossom while earning a bit of cash to keep my kid in Legos.

I assume you are asking about the mitigation of environmental impacts of civil engineering projects on the natural environment.
Civil engineering projects often have significant impacts on the natural environment, and these impacts can adversely affect species at and around the project site...
If you wish to pick up a bit of information without attending courses, there are a few text books designed to be a complete resource for novices in these fields.
As others have stated, performing unsupervised experiments is not advised but there may be clubs and associations in your area...
