For two years ('10-'12) I was a chemistry teacher at a local charter school. I taught chemistry on a regular, pre-AP, and AP level. I have since left the teaching profession to pursue a more research and lab based chemistry job, but I still do enjoy tutoring and helping out students.

In the 11'-12' academic year, I had the opportunity to teach and prepare a set of freshmen students for the STAAR Chemistry EOC (end of course) Exam, which is the state assessment we are currently transitioning to from the TAKS exam. The majority of Texas sophomores in the public education system will be taking this exam and 100% of my freshman were able to pass the test last academic year.

Things have changed since then, since the requirement for a Chemistry STAAR fell through, but generally on most chemistry exam formats, I'm pretty good at preparing students for since I have this compulsive urge towards convincing myself that a student has a concept down. That means a lot of questioning and demonstrating knowledge for the student. This tutoring style also carries over to Biology where my methods are largely Socratic. A lot of times, the teacher in me takes over.

I've found tutoring to be a nice outlet from my day job. I like helping others out with chemistry immensely and I find it very fulfilling. I'm currently in school and working at the same time so my schedule is really regimented at the moment. Please email me a few days in advance from when you would like me to tutor so I can make sure my schedule is clear and I can plan accordingly around work and schoolwork.

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.

Biology

I'm certified 8-12 composite science in the state of Texas. While I did not teach biology, it was the secondary concentration for my certification.

Excellent tutor. — Christine is wonderful! She can break math down into components that make it easy for my son to understand. She really makes him think it out and learn with a smile on his face! ...
