I am a retired chemist with 30 years of practical, chemical and pharmaceutical industrial experience. I have enjoyed tutoring high school level chemistry and algebra for the last 3 years. I use a process oriented approach to teaching math and science principles. Once a process is learned for a given topic, almost any problem within that topic can be solved. I use a variety of tools that complement the student's text, previous tests and worksheets. I am familiar with the Virginia Dept. of Education's SOL's and use that information as well to help the student succeed. My hourly rate is $50.
I have a master's degree in chemistry with 35 years of laboratory experience in studying organic molecule structure and properties. I worked in two types of industrial labs: pharmaceuticals and chemicals used in photography. My job was to provide structural and compositional details of a variety of chemical species using sophisticated instrumentation to other scientists in the organization. I have been tutoring math and general chemistry for about 2 years.
