Hello! My name is Anna, and here are some bits of relevant information you would need to know about me, followed by a closing statement about what I can do for you.
I hold Bachelor and Master degrees in Chemistry and have been working in both, research and teaching activities for about 20 years. I am particularly passionate about teaching, as I find that helping students to learn and to develop their critical thinking abilities is a uniquely meaningful and fulfilling task.
Over the course of my career, I have had the enriching opportunity of teaching subjects in science and mathematics; including physical science, chemistry, organic chemistry, physics and biochemistry, as well as algebra, geometry, differential equations and statistics, to diverse audiences and under different settings; including classroom, workshops and tutoring. These experiences have shaped the two guiding principles of my teaching style; principles that support well my ultimate goal: assist and facilitate student’s learning.
I organize and deliver information or explanations in logical portions to facilitate learning and understanding.
I do not try to change the learning style of the student, rather I am an excellent and swift observer which allows me to become aware of the student’s learning style and select the suitable ways to get the message across. In addition, I carefully listen to the student in order to precisely ascertain the specific tutoring needs.
Who can I help?
Students in grades 8 through college who have trouble understanding any part of the material in the subjects listed above.
PLEASE NOTE: From June 2011 through September 2011 I will be unable to assist students preparing for standardized tests. I will resume this task in October 2011.
What are the specific goals of our tutoring sessions?
Facilitating your understanding of specific concepts. I will provide the best way to convey the information to you.
Helping you effectively find and use the available resources in order to solve problems. Actually, some of these resources you may already have; such as textbook, lecture notes, past tests, previous examples, etc...
The more independent you become, the better tutor I am.
