I tutored for 3 years in a volunteering group while working on my first degree. The tutoring involved teaching subjects like chemistry, physics and algebra. I tutored mainly high school students, but often times, parents of middle school students would hear about the program and request that their child join. So, I also tutored middle school students at times.
I graduated as a chemistry major degree and psychology minor. This means that I not only have the skills to understand complex topics, but I can also breakdown theses concepts into understandable chunks of knowledge so that my students can understand them as well. I have also written a calculus book that teaches calculus in a very conceptual format based on algebraic principles. This is different from the direction that standard calculus books use.
I offer succinct, conceptual math and science lessons. I emphasize the basic principles of math/science subjects that I teach and then use a barrage of problems to reinforce those principles. With a combination of notes, problems, problem analysis and practice, my lessons will lead to thorough understanding of the material.
