I have tutored several students in Algebra 1 before, and I am confident that I have the experience and knowledge to help your student master the material.
When people ask me about tutoring, I like to jokingly say I have learned to "dominate" algebra II. At this stage in my tutoring career I can confidently say I have mastered the material covered in this course. This mastery makes this course one of my favorite to work on with students so I can help them develop the same ease I have with the subject matter for themselves.
I have a minor in biological sciences from McNeese State University. I have always been passionate about the realm of biology, and I wish to share that passion with you.
Over the course of my college career I have changed majors several times as I continued to learn about myself and reevaluate my goals for the future. Throughout this process I have completed calculus I 3 times, the most recent of which was in the fall of 2011. I completed the course in the fall of 2011 with an A, and I hope to help you achieve the same goal.
I have taken many courses in chemistry, at both the high school and college levels. The college courses include the first two semesters of chemistry lectures with the accompanying labs, and one semester of organic chemistry with the accompanying lab.
Among science course, I have the most experience tutoring chemistry students. I can help your student excel in a course that give many people trouble.
Of all the subjects I tutor, I have the most experience working with geometry students. As such, I have seen the subject matter many times, and I can effectively explain to your student how to solve the problems in a simple to understand way.
I had no trouble with Physical Science back when I took it in high school, and my more advanced classes in physics and chemistry leave me totally qualified to help your student with this class.
I can still remember the rush of finally understanding that "x" could equal ANYTHING. This was a major breakthrough in my mathematical career, and I hope I can increase your students understanding just like my own.
In my opinion, precalculus is the most challenging math course offered to high school students (even compared to calculus!). I have years of experience helping students understand this potentially daunting course and helping them get better grades than they thought possible.
I have received a B.S. in psychology from McNeese State University. I have taken courses on many different aspects of psychology, including biopsychology, cognitive psychology, research methods, and social psychology.
I have been learning and playing soccer since I was 6 years old, which brings me to a grand total of 17 years of experience. I have played in a variety of capacities including recreational teams, both men's and co-ed, select teams, high school teams, college varsity teams, and intramural teams. I have experience with teaching the game to young people through coaching at a camp outside of Lake Charles once yearly. I also helped out with several camps throughout my high school career. I have the knowledge and equipment (small goals, cones, etc.) necessary to teach players, both beginner and advanced, to better their game.
During my high school career, I had no trouble with the trigonometric portions of my geometry and algebra 2 classes. I have the knowledge of the subject matter help you improve your grades.
I have always been a voracious reader, which has resulted in my acquisition of a fairly impressive vocabulary. I can also help you learn suffixes and prefixes which will enable you to infer the meaning of words that you may not have never even seen before.
With my B.S. in psychology came many opportunities to work on several different types of writing including: technical, research papers, and argumentative. I have helped other students with their writing before, and I have the knowledge to help you better your abilities.
