I am an experienced and passionate Science
tutor and teacher. I love working with students and seeing them succeed in their quest for learning. Here is a little about me.
I have a B.S. in Chemistry
, with a concentration in Biochemistry
and a minor in Education. I am working towards an M.A. in Science Education, Biological Sciences 5-12. I have a solid knowledge of chemistry, physics
and earth science
as well as mathematics
Currently, I work as a private tutor helping college, high school and middle school students with chemistry, biology and earth science courses. I have extensive experience working with children as a science teacher. I have worked with middle school students teaching Living Environment and Earth Science Regents
classes to the gifted and talented, as well as traditional 6th, 7th and 8th grade curriculum. I have tutored or taught different areas of science in varying capacities for over 15 years. Students I work with show immediate improvement in their understanding of the subject matter and consequently their test scores. Philosophy
I believe in learning for the sake of learning and I am very passionate about the subjects I tutor. I love working with people and helping them realize their potential. I help my students understand and remember material better by encouraging them to visualize concepts, organize ideas, use of simple but memorable analogies, and of course practice problem solving. I believe in treating students as individuals and creating the best learning environment for each student to succeed.

To find the percent mass of solute in a solution you have to divide the mass of solute by the mass of solution and multiply by 100%.
First find the mass of solution by adding the mass of solute to the mass of the solvent. 4.40g +10.3g = 14.7g
4.40g* 100% divided...
To solve this you can set up a proportion. If the original number is 100% 54 would be 108% of the original. (Since it was increased by 8%).
solving the proportion gives you
54 * 100= 108 * x
First you have to solve for one of the variables in terms of the other. Take one of the equations for example a+b=1000 and solve for a to get a=1000-b. Now you can substitute this expression into the other equation instead of a. 7a+15b=11504 becomes
