I provide one-on-one science (chemistry, biochemistry, biology, genetics, molecular biology, organic chemistry, and physics), math, statistics, and Microsoft Excel tutoring to junior high, high school, and college students. I enjoy applying my in depth science knowledge in helping my students learn and improve their test scores. I will tutor in your home, a public or college library or bookstore. I am also Wyzant certified as an online tutor.
I am a creative and enthusiastic tutor who will find your strengths and help you apply them in better learning and getting better grades. I will also work with you to prepare for your ACT, CLEP test, or teacher certification test if needed. I have also been trained in reading tutoring K-8th grade.
I have a B.S. degree in Chemistry (minor in math) and a Ph.D. in Chemistry as well and have a total of 32 years of post graduate experience in four different industries agriculture, dye chemistry and scientific biotechnology, and currently water technologies.
My Tutoring Approach
In my tutoring I try to put myself in my student's place. This way I better empathize with them and understand what methods will help them achieve their goals. If the student needs more feedback, I try to provide that and find ways for them to receive that while they are studying. If there might be an issue with test anxiety, I try to witness that via a short quiz and observe what contributes to the fears.
For math, science, and multiple choice test taking, I recommend timing homework problems or practice tests to determine which areas need more focused study, and thereby better achieve test completion.
