I tutored from October of 2012 to June of 2013 through the Lone Star College Academic Success Center. There, I successfully aided students in Algebra, Statistics, Calculus, Inorganic and Organic Chemistry, and Physics. I occasionally assisted students with their English and Biology subjects, but my expertise in the physical sciences was more sought-after.
I aim to explain the subject in a way that the student can understand. Not every student thinks in the same way, so I explain the subject in a variety of ways. My approach is to identify the gaps in a student's knowledge and fill those gaps. I don't aim for fun, but we usually laugh along the way. Humor helps to overcome the psychological barriers of learning a new subject.
I ask that students have at hand:
1. The assignment.
2. Their textbook.
3. Supplies necessary to do the assignment. Some assignments require use of a calculator; most require pencil and paper.
I will not do whole assignments for a student, though I often use select parts to demonstrate the necessary problem-solving skills. I am also more than happy to check a student's work. It's a great way to identify areas that need improvement.
I will not help a student while that student is taking a quiz or test online, as that would be considered cheating. It is unethical for me, puts the student at risk of failing if discovered, and does the student no favors in the long run. Success comes to those who are motivated and hard-working. That, too, is one of the lessons I teach.
I look forward to helping you (or your child) meet your goals.
I've studied the Bible for over 20 years, both independently and in group studies. I spent a year under rigorous tutelage with three experienced preachers in Lufkin, Tx. Afterwards, I spent five years preaching full time in Gladewater, TX and conducting missionary work overseas. I've taught the Bible in public and private settings on thousands of occasions.
I have recently completed Organic Chemistry I and II at a local college. My average in the two classes was a 3.5 on a 4.0 scale, and I was offered a letter of recommendation by my professor. During my time taking the classes, I also tutored classmates through college's tutoring facility.
Great Tutor — Zach is professional, polite, and patient. He helped my F turn into a B in my statistics class in a short, college summer session. Zach was on time every session and stayed as long as I needed him to. When I asked a question, he was able to answer it immediately, without wasting time trying to figure out how to work through a certain problem. He will come to your house or meet you at a public libr ...
