I have a lot of experience tutoring and teaching a wide variety of math and science classes from grades 6 through college.
My Bachelor's degree is in Atmospheric Chemistry from Purdue University. I took 9 semesters of college calculus, 2 semesters of calculus-applied physics, three semesters of atmospheric fluid dynamics, 5 semesters of chemistry, and extensive studies in earth and atmospheric science.
As a professional in my field, I tutored undergraduate and high school students, so I decided to return back to school and earn a teaching license and Master's in secondary science and math. I did not complete this, however -- not because I didn't love it, but because I missed the one-on-one interaction that I was able to get when I was tutoring.
I want to share a couple of stories from my tutoring experiences:
There was a high school student who was struggling with his Pre-Algebra class. I was a teacher assistant in his Earth/Space Science class, but I offered tutoring in other subjects as well. He didn't take me up on my offer to tutor him until the very end of the semester where he was on the pass/fail level. Whether he passed or failed depended on how he performed on the final -- he needed a 75% to pass.
After only 2 hours of tutoring, on the night before his final, he was able to get an 87% on the final (definitely good enough to pass)! I tutored this student for free, but his success was enough of a reward.
An undergraduate student in atmospheric sciences came to me for tutoring help in an Atmospheric Dynamics course. After almost failing the previous semester in atmospheric sciences (Atmospheric Thermodynamics course), he was desperate.
We met for tutoring on 5 Tuesdays for 1 hour, and with my assistance, he earned an "A" for the first time in an atmospheric science class. Again, another rewarding experience!
I hope you consider me for your tutor, as I truly care about the success of the students I assist. Good luck with your studies, and I hope to hear from you!
