I have been tutoring students in Broward County since I moved here to marry my wife in 2006. I have been effective helping students improve their grades and raise their SAT scores. My students always feel comfortable working with me and many have told me that I explain things better than their other tutors. I tutor a variety of subjects including all levels of mathematics and most types of science from K-12 and college level engineering, chemistry, physics, mathematics, statistics and environmental science.
My full time job is as a high school science and mathematics instructor. At the high school level, I have taught AP Chemistry, AP Physics B, AP Physics C, AP Environmental Science, AP Calculus AB, AP Calculus BC, Physics (honors), Precalculus (honors), and Precalculus. At the college level, I have taught Chemical Engineering Thermodynamics and General Chemistry Laboratory.
Most of my tutoring students are high school students of all levels: AP, honors, and regular track courses. I have worked on math with a few elementary students and I have had a few college clients in statistics, algebra, calculus, environmental science, physics and chemistry.
Each student I have worked with on SAT math skills has seen a substantial increase in their score beyond that expected from just practicing. My own son improved 140 points in math from the first to the second SAT (his verbal score also increased by 60). I also have helped students realize that the ACT science section is not at all beyond their abilities and is actually very easy if they know how to read data.
I have even helped a student with microbiology for which I have no expertise at all just by helping the student to understand what was presented in the textbook and class notes. My instruction methods vary depending on the needs of the student, but what is constant is helping students find information and figure things out for themselves. I make certain after I demonstrate a concept that the student can then explain it in their own words.
Thank you for your consideration. I look forward to meeting you and helping you reach your academic potential.
