I'm passionate about mathematics and the sciences and love teaching them to students. My philosophy about learning difficult subjects is that everyone has the ability to understand them; they just haven't had the opportunity to see it the way they need to in order to understand.
I can offer patience and creativity to help students of any grade level grasp difficult concepts and use higher level understanding to tackle mathematics problems.
I have 3 years of teaching and tutoring experience including small classroom lecture and one-on-one interaction. I was given a teaching award and have a supplemental instruction certification that helps me effectively cater to many different learning styles. I enjoy finding creative ways to provide new perspective to students struggling with the learning process.
I have my master's degree in chemistry. I have completed both organic chemistry I and II lectures and the associated labs and received the top score in my class both times. My research project during graduate school required the use of organic chemistry so I am experienced in the subject.
I am a certified supplemental instructor (SI) which was a rigorous, semester long certification process at the college level that taught how to teach any kind of topic. It covered how to teach to one or only a few students and also how to accommodate for up to large size classrooms. I used this certification to provide supplemental instruction for a large lecture physics course, where I held small help sessions several times a week. These were both lecture and question and answer based. The focus here was on teaching students how to approach their course material in an organized fashion that made sense to them individually and based on the subject matter. I also taught a physical chemistry course where conceptual understanding was very important and study skills played a key role. Much of that interaction was more about how to manage the task demanded from the course than the actual task.
Awesome tutor — I feel lucky to have Liz as a tutor for my daughter's pre-calculus course. I've seen that Liz has a thorough understanding of the subject and a much broader knowledge outside that immediate area of study. She was quick to assess my daughter's strengths and weaknesses in mathematics, and immediately built on the strengths while working through the those things my daughter had not yet understood c ...
