As an undergraduate, I was exposed to learning strategies from musicians, psychologists, mathematicians and scientists alike. I teach these combined strategies to all my students, so they can be successful in their classes and tests.
My major duty as a tutor is to share these learning strategies to help students find what works best for them. For example, within the first few sessions, I teach my students the rule of three 3's. This simple rule/strategy gave me a photographic memory of a piece of sheet music
that I had to memorize for our marching band field show my freshman year.
My students also learn a technique that I call "word math
". Using applicable every-day examples students develop a way to translate English
into math and math into English. This technique simplifies word problems to the point that the questions practically provide the answer.
These tools (and several more) combine to create the perfect learning strategy for chemistry
or just about any study.
It is very important to find a tutor that matches the student's needs. The first hour is satisfaction guaranteed. If you are not satisfied with the first hour you will not be charged and you have no obligation to continue.
I am available for "transformative" tutoring in which I focus on these learning and problem solving techniques that help you improve without becoming perpetually dependent on a tutor. I am also available for regular homework help for those who just need to get through the course.
As always, group discounts apply. Group tutoring not only gets everyone a discount, but also provides students with an invaluable support group. I look forward to providing whatever services I can, whether it be a few sessions of "transformative" tutoring or long term study help.

We always have to learn new information. In school that information comes hard and fast, and retaining that information can be very difficult. Every student has to learn how his or her brain learns and stores that new material. To help your brain learn to
learn quicker, try using the "Rule of 3 Threes". I was able to memorize the music for a ten minute marching band show in only two...
