I have had the good fortune of tutoring several high school and college students in math and science over the years. When I first start tutoring someone, s/he is often frustrated and discouraged, so my first objective is to get his/her confidence back. That is even more important than the subject matter, as important as the subject matter is. Once the person's confidence returns, then s/he will be more receptive to what I am teaching, and significant improvement will follow.
One person came to me a few years back having flunked two chemistry exams. I was able to work with this person and, through his dedication, he improved significantly. He graduated last year with a degree in pharmacy. Another person I taught failed the first chemistry quiz of the semester (2 out of 10). I worked with this person, and he went on to do very well in the course.
The approach that I take is that, as long as students don't give up on themselves, I won't give up on them either, regardless of what their grades are. I know someone who got a C- in the first chemistry course that he took, then got an A in the second one. The same can happen for other struggling students as well.
I have tutored several students over the years in math and would be honored to have the opportunity to do so again.
I have tutored several high school and college students in general chemistry over the years, and I would be happy to serve in that capacity again.
I have a B.S. in Chemistry, an M.S. in Medicinal Chemistry, and a Ph.D. in Analytical Chemistry. In the process of obtaining my education, I have taken courses in all of the science related subjects covered on the test (General Chemistry, Organic Chemistry, Biology, and Physics). In addition, I am qualified to tutor in all of those subjects through WyzAnt and have already successfully tutored in three of them (General Chemistry, Organic, Chemistry, Biology), both in person and online.
I have an M.S. degree in Medicinal Chemistry, which is described on the University of Washington website as "a discipline with a traditional focus on organic synthetic chemistry with the broad goals of drug discovery and optimization" (website reference: http://sop.washington.edu/medchem). My thesis research included the organic synthesis of inhibitors of Carboxypeptidase G-2. Additionally, when I was a graduate student, I served as a teaching assistant for organic chemistry laboratory. I have already served as a general chemistry tutor for several students, and would be honored to use that tutoring experience to help organic chemistry students as well.
I have had the good fortune of tutoring several students in science over the years and would welcome the opportunity to serve in that capacity again.
