This (2014) will be my second year as a tutor on wyzant.com. I have a lot of experience teaching chemistry including high school level chemistry. I also know that my students like me and think I am helpful and funny, a thing you might experience yourself.
I have a master in science
degree from Cal
. State Long Beach (2013). As a part of the college’s program I was offered a position as teaching associate. Since spring 2011, I have taught 6 chemistry classes including 3 Chem101 classes which are practically high school level chemistry courses. I was given the additional responsibility of teaching several general chemistry and analytical chemistry laboratories and seminars.
My experience as an undergraduate college level chemistry instructor goes back to 2008, back in my home country. There, I taught two courses of pharmaceutical chemistry laboratories in which I have an MS degree. My undergraduate degree and my first master's degrees are in pharmacy; at home, it is unlike the United States where you need a PharmD. degree to become a pharmacist. Many other countries require only a BS in pharmacy, which includes a lot of emphasis on chemistry. I personally took five chemistry related courses during my undergraduate studies and three more during my first graduate studies; this is not mentioning five years of chemistry classes in middle and high school
Now that I have taken even more chemistry courses, I can confidently say that I have covered the chemistry courses, both undergraduate and advanced, that are quite sufficient to make me a competent tutor in introductory chemistry, general chemistry, organic chemistry
, and perhaps other disciplines of chemistry. Having a BS in pharmacy makes me a competent pharmacology
Being a non-Muslim Arab, I can help you in learning Arabic
and tutoring you in Arabic if you are taking it in college. I am an excellent translator with high proficiency in English
and almost no accent. In general, I don’t expect any cultural barrier. I am completely Americanized.
Feel free to contact me via WyzAnt. I can arrange a public place for meeting with you, like a nearby library. I am also ready for in-home sessions within Long Beach city limits.
If taken per individual, rates for in house tutoring higher than rates of tutoring in a public library.
