Hi, my name is Lydia, and I am currently an FIU student with a solid background in chemistry. Currently, I am a chemistry TA (teaching assistant) at FIU, which means that I teach labs as well as tutor students on campus. I was also a chemistry learning assistant (one year) as well as a volunteer tutor (four years) on campus for both general chemistry 1 and 2 (as well as Survey of Chemistry). I have experience tutoring high school (regular, honors and IB) as well as undergraduate students. I can honestly say that I love helping others learn chemistry, and hopefully I can help you.

I offer discounted group rates. $35/hr for one student and $60/hr for two students. $25/hr per additional student (so a group of three would be $85/hr, a group of four would be $110/hr, and so on).
If anyone wants a young, patient, very helpful, and intelligent tutor, you have to pick Lydia. She responds back as quick as possible on the phone, and if you have small doubts, she will help you out. I have improved greatly with Lydia's help. My grades have gone higher in chemistry and I'm just more than happy to recommend Lydia to anyone who needs tutoring.
In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
I have been involved in some sort of Chemistry education since 2009. I have served as a private tutor and TA in several Chemistry capacities.
