I am a graduate with a Master of Science degree in chemistry from the Georgia Institute of Technology. I studied physical chemistry for two years and have a rich background in science, with a focus on chemistry, physics and math. I also tutor English, writing, reading, SAT, GRE, and other subjects.
I tutor typically by going over problem sets or homework questions and exams, if after the fact. I can lecture when necessary, but I try not to do so because that style of education is best left to the classroom rather than the interactive, individualized nature of a tutoring position. Therefore, I prefer to ask questions to probe how a student may arrive at an answer and why they think it is correct or incorrect. By challenging them to actually think about the material, rather than passively absorbing in lecture style, they are able to improve their ability and performance.
There are multiple learning styles - I hope to accommodate as many of them as possible!
