Following eleven years of teaching experience at the high school level and eighteen years of teaching experience at the college level I have had twelve years of experience as a private tutor. While my undergraduate and graduate degrees are in Biochemistry I took math courses through college including calculus and differential equations. I have tutored high school, college, home schooled and non-traditional students. My students are very loyal to me and often retain my services for multiple subjects and multiple years. I tutor students in any level of chemistry including AP, physics (including AP), and any math including AP calculus (not including stats). The majority of my students have hired me to tutor them in math (mostly pre-calculus and calculus)and Chemistry. I can provide any student with many, many references regardless of the course they wish to be tutored in. I recently moved to Colorado from Ohio and got a vast majority of students I tutored by way of referrals from high school guidance counselors who found that I made a very positive impact on the students I tutored.
I believe the vast majority of my students would tell you that I am patient, very knowledgeable and have a way of presenting material in an easy to understand manner. I make very good use of simple life experience analogies to explain complex concepts in an easy to comprehend way. I also use a problem solving strategy which can be applied to solving the vast majority of problems a student would encounter in any particular subject area. I have high expectations of my students and will leave them with assignments designed to drill them on the material they need help with. I also expect parents to be involved in the process and give them feedback on each and every session. All of my students showed dramatic improvement in their school grades.I am reliable, on time and I am often available to answer quick questions by phone or make an extra appointment right before an exam or test.
Before becoming a full time tutor I was a college football coach for eighteen years. During that time I also taught college courses including Chemistry, Physics, Pre-Calculus and Calculus.
