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.

Will tutor two students in the same subject for $55/hr.
