I am a talented individual, knowledgeable in a broad subject range. I am an experienced teacher, trainer, mentor, capable of working effectively with above average, average, and special needs children. I have four years of experience in the classroom, working for PNGISD, teaching 9th - 12th graders, including ESL, ED, learning disabled, and college prep students.

In addition to teaching, I have an extensive industrial background to help bring subject matter to life. I have a degree in chemistry, and have worked 8.5 years for the Jefferson County Crime Lab as a forensic analyst/drug chemist ("CSI"), one year as an R&D analyst, and 6 years as a Chemist with ExxonMobil Refinery & Chemicals plant. I have children of my own and understand the importance of homework, projects, keeping up with the class, and grasping the "why" of what's being learned, not just memorizing blind steps. I would love to share my knowledge and experience with your children, as well.

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.

Algebra 1

I have personally completed math through Calculus III, placing out of college Algebra. I taught a high school math remediation course and have continued to use math extensively in my corporate career. I have previously tutored near-failing students in Algebra to obtain grades of As & Bs.

Algebra 2

I have personally completed math through Calculus III, placing out of college Algebra, having taken both Algebra I & II in high school. I have continued to use math extensively in my corporate career. I have previously tutored near-failing students in Algebra to obtain grades of As & Bs.

Anatomy

I have a BS in Chemistry/Biochemistry, and am certified to teach both Physical Science and Chemistry.I attended medical school for one year, where I studied advanced level science courses, including completion of a human anatomy & physiology course with cadaver dissection. I have over 15 years experience in industry working as a Chemist/Scientist to provide real-life examples for interesting examples. I am especially gifted at taking complex ideas and explaining them in a simple, easy to understand format.

Chemistry

I have a BS in Chemistry/Biochemistry and am certified to teach both Physical Science and Chemistry. I formally taught both of those subjects for four years, in classes including remedial to college-prep level students. I attended medical school for one year, where I studied advanced level science courses. I have over 15 years experience in industry working as a Chemist/Scientist to provide real-life examples for interesting applications. I am especially gifted at taking complex ideas and explaining them in a simple, easy to understand format.

College Counseling

With my strong educational background, colorful career and varied life experiences, I feel I have much to offer by way of counseling college age students as they plan their futures.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am certified in multiple subjects with WyzAnt, including Elementary Math, Elementary Science, Reading, Writing, Spelling, and Vocabulary. I am a certified teacher, with years of teaching and corporate experience, as well as personal experience with my own 9 & 11 year old children. I am confident I can work well with Elementary age students in any subject matter they need assistance.

Genetics

I successfully completed college and medical school level Genetics courses, making As in both. I tutored other college students in Genetics when I was in college. Although it's been twenty years, I still remember the class, from alleles to zygotes!

Microsoft Outlook

I have used Microsoft Outlook both personally and professionally for over 10 years, in both PC and MAC formats. I am proficient with email, calendaring, and meeting/appointment scheduling.

Phonics

Phonics goes hand in hand with writing, spelling, and vocabulary. I embed phonics lessons in my spelling tutorials; I prefer to avoid simple memorization, and instead pursue the understanding behind the concept whenever possible. Phonics is the understanding behind reading and spelling.

TAKS

I am certified in over 30 individual subjects, am a Texas certified teacher, have taught high school chemistry and physical science for four years, and worked in industry as a scientist over 15 years. I am fully capable of tutoring for the TAKS test .
