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 industrial based chemistry job, but I still do enjoy tutoring and helping out students.
This recent academic year (2011-2012), I had the rare 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. Due to this situation and also my training for the EOC, I have a general feel for what is expected on that exam and also the exam format.
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.
