I have worked in Research and Development for Procter and Gamble, Pfizer and Oak Ridge National Laboratories. I am also a third generation teacher and hold a Masters in Organic Chemistry from the University of Tennessee. I welcome Sophomore level as well as Intermediate Organic Students preparing for Grad-school or the MCAT!
I have had great success tutoring a 7th grade boy who has ADHD; his dad (Mike V) left a comment regarding my tutoring with WYZANT. I have taught many high school students with this condition and know how to keep them engaged; I would like the opportunity to help more students that struggle with this disorder.
In the past, I have tutored Chemistry, Physics and Math at CCRI, I'm sure I can help! All of the above subjects require a working knowledge of Algebra. I have also taught at the high school level and home school my children.
My Algebra II instructor was a descendant of Rene Des Carte and I was taught Calculus in England. I have taught chemistry at the college level and high school physics. I would like to believe that my unusual mix of instruction allows me to see things from a perspective that the textbooks may not capture. I would love the opportunity to share what I have learned.
I have been an organic lab assistant in undergraduate school and a teaching assistant in grad school. I have worked in R&D for Procter & Gamble, Pfizer Inc. and Oak Ridge National Labs. I am an organic chemist by day and don't claim to know all the answers, but most students have found me to be a great help.
I have been playing chess for 35 years; for the last five years I have been teaching my son who is now age 14. A few years ago I played daily on an international forum. My rating increased from 1200 to 1500 by playing more experienced players.
I would love to share what I learned with people from ages 8 to 80!
For two years I have tutored Chemistry, Physics and Math at CCRI. After homeschooling my kids, I realized that they needed conceptual instruction as well as an understanding of raw operations; i.e. instead of memorizing 3X4=12, they needed to circle 3 dots four times then count up all twelve dots; then I would add, "now try to remember that!" I never tell people to memorize anything; I just explain something then encourage them to remember it....
I have been a Teaching Assistant for Organic Chemistry while in school and acted as a paraprofessional tutor at CCRI. Some of the students that I have helped are now veterinarians, pharmacists, physicians and chemists. I can help with 1st or 2nd Semester Organic Chemistry, Intermediate Organic, Graduate School entrance exams and/or MCAT prep.
In 1995 I won the Physical Science Award at Lee University for acting as the Organic Chemistry Lab Assistant and maintaining a 4.0 GPA in Physical Science. Since then I've taught College Chemistry and High School Physics and tutored Chemistry, Math and Physics at CCRI.
Awesome Tutor — Dan has been very good for my son. Interacts well and easy to get along with. Dan has been able to walk him through one chapter at a time, quite a relief for all of us. I think tutoring is a great avenue for one on one help, however it has to be a good fit. I think Dan puts his heart and soul into teaching. He goes beyond just putting the pencil to paper and has always been very easy to reach when ...
