I tutor high-school level maths and science, the same subjects I enjoy learning about myself. I primarily specialize in ACT/SAT Math prep and Algebra, and can help with Chemistry/Trigonometry/Geometry.

An important part of being a tutor is knowing the current academic environment, especially with the increased reliance on testing. Often times good students and smart people struggle to fit their real knowledge and intelligence into getting results on a 3-hour test you take sitting quietly at a desk. Often times, what is lacking is teaching how the material is important and relevant to real life. I believe that if you demonstrate real examples of how this knowledge can be put to use, the process of learning becomes meaningful and rewarding. Having a meaningful experience of learning not only helps you immensely on the tests - it helps you for the rest of your life.

My approach to tutoring is simple:

When tutoring for a class, I try to expand on and integrate into the course material to make it meaningful and worthwhile as well as cover the material. When tutoring for a test, I focus more on practical knowledge and test-taking readiness. I find and work on weaknesses to cover the bases you're missing.


Thank you for your consideration and best of luck in your studies!

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Genetics

I took 5 biology courses while at UNC Chapel Hill. In "Genetics & Mechanics", a 300-level biology course, I received an A-. Although I have not yet tutored in genetics, I understand and feel confident about the subject material.

You have: (21y5-42y4+49y3)/7y3.   1. Do it one at a time. Start with the constants. You have a bunch of numbers- 21, 42, 49, over 7. Notice anything about those numbers- 21, 42, 49? They're all factors of 7.    21/7 is 3, 42/7 is 6, 49/7 is 7.    Simplify...
