I am a recent college graduate with a B.S. in biology and chemistry. I have tutored before and have helped adults and adolescents in various sciences and mathematics. In tutoring, I like not to give an answer right away, but rather ask questions that the student would already know to try to get them to eventually solve questions on their own. Working with me would help not only become more knowledgeable in the subject you wish tutoring in, but also how to arrive at answers to questions you seek.

Chemistry
I have had research experience in analytical chemistry in addition to my degree. Also, my coursework includes classes that I feel comfortable teaching in that include analytical chemistry, organic chemistry, general chemistry, and physical chemistry.

Biology
I have completed my degree in biology as well. I have taken coursework in general biology, microbiology, molecular genetics, human anatomy and physiology, comparative physiology, and entomology.

Mathematics
I do not have a former degree in mathematics, however, I have taken higher level mathematics in college and have used them in various courses such as physical and analytical chemistry.

For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students.
