Hello! My name is Ponder and I look forward to being your math and/or science tutor. I love science and math and enjoy tutoring in these subjects. I have over 9 years of teaching experience in college algebra and 8 years of tutoring college algebra as well. While teaching college algebra, I also worked for a fortune 500 pharmaceutical company as a scientist where I used math extensively and principles of chemistry. In college, I was a teacher's assistant where I helped set up chemistry laboratory experiments and helped students with such experiments during class time. I obtained my Bachelor's and Master's degree in chemistry from Delaware State University in 1997 and 1999 respectively. I currently teach online algebra part-time at the University of Phoenix.

I really enjoy teaching for I feel that I can make a positive difference in someone's life. I also feel that showing students how math and science are used in real-life applications can help the students to become more comfortable with math and science and actually enjoy learning these subjects. I believe that a positive attitude is most important in reaching academic goals, and I hope that I can boost your self-esteem and positive attitude by making math and science fun. If you are looking for excellent grades in these subjects while having fun learning, then I look forward to working with you!
