Need help with your high school or college coursework? I have the experience to help you understand your homework and prepare for tests.
I am a fully licensed teacher in the state of Virginia with ten years of teaching experience. My teaching experience includes Chemistry, AP Chemistry, IB Chemistry, World History and IB History courses. I have tutored students since I was 14 years old.
After teaching all levels of chemistry from the basic SOL required course to AP and IB SL/HL courses I can help you/your child understand and learn to appreciate their chemistry class. I have also worked with students to prepare for their SAT II in chemistry, with many students earning perfect scores.
I also have taught History, working with many students learn how to interpret primary sources, analyze documents and write in-depth essays.
I am passionate about helping students feel involved and interested in their classes. Their is nothing worse than feeling a class happening around you, without being able to participate. I will help you learn the tools and skills necessary to be an active member of your education.
I have taught chemistry for 10 years, 6 years in the state of Virginia. I have taught in the public school system all of my career, working with students of all ability levels and helping them achieve the highest pass rates on the SOL in our school.
I have also worked with students in AP and IB chemistry for 8 of my 10 year teaching career. While in college I tutored students in Chemistry 120 (the advanced sequence) and Organic chemistry.
At university I majored in history and even spent one semester studying abroad in Europe, developing a true appreciation for European history. As a teacher in a public high school I have taught World History and IB world history for 3 years. I have experience working with students and helping them understand the subject and learn to apply that knowledge.
I have taught IB HL chemistry for 8 out of the last 10 years. In this coursework one quarter every year is dedicated to Organic chemistry, including the following:
Reactions: Combustion Reactions; Addition reactions to alkenes and alkynes; Hydration reactions; Halogenation reactions; Hydrohalogenation reactions; Dehydration reactions (Basic elimination reactions), acylation (meta vs ortho vs para directors)
Isomers: Geometric, Stereoisomers
Sn1 vs Sn2 reactions
In addition to teaching my regular students I have tutored Organic chemistry students in their college coursework which contains a bit more detail.
As a state licensed and currently active public school teacher I am very well versed in the state requirements and set up of the SOL. I have prepared my students for and proctored the Chemistry SOL 5 times. My students have achieved the highest SOL pass rates in our school for the past 4 years.
The state requirements for Chemistry are broken down into 5 basic sections. The Chemistry test consists of 60 questions. 10 of these are "field" questions that will not count in the final score. To pass a student must achieve around a 55%. To pass advanced a student must achieve a 90%.
