I have a BA in Geology from the University of Colorado. Worked for the USGS for 22 years and was lead lab technician for 3 years doing chemistry with Wyoming Analytical Laboratories. I personally successfully tutored a friend who moved to Colorado from Dubai to recieve an A in College Chemistry.

I believe I can successfully tutor elementry students in math, science, and reading. I prefer not to tutor more advanced subjects as I have been partially physically disabled for about 4 years due to mutiple spine fractures. Thus, have been kind of "out of the loop" and not stayed up to date with more advanced subjects.

I believe patience and building good rapport with the student is essential. Also explaining the "why?" in easy, understandable real every day life examples greatly improves the learning process.
