Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. 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.

Biology

I have been tutoring general biology at the College level for more than 10 years.

Business

I am able to tutor and coach students in business. I teach introduction to management at Montgomery College and have degrees in organizational psychology. Additionally, I am on the board of a nonprofit charitable foundation as a vice president, and have experience setting-up, and managing businesses.

Career Development

Career development is one of my main areas of focus. I work with college students and other adults on a regular basis to help them determine career paths. As part of my training in organizational psychology I took a concentration of courses in industrial psychology which focuses on career development. I am available to work with high school students, college students, and adults to help them find careers that will be rewarding, successful, and uniquely suited to their personalities, skills, and abilities.

Chemistry

I tutor general chemistry and organic chemistry face to face and via the internet. I received the Excellence in Organic Chemistry Award at my College and have been tutoring it for over 10 years.

Organic Chemistry

I have been tutoring organic chemistry I and II at Montgomery College as part of my full time job as the director of the Science Learning Center for the last 6 years, and 2 years before that as a peer tutor and instructional assistant. I earned A's in organic chemistry 1 and 2 when I took them about 10 years ago and won Montgomery College's award for excellence in organic chemistry in 2003.

Psychology

I have a masters and PhD in psychology and can help with everything from general psychology to developmental to personality to IO to social to school to forensic psychology. I can also provide tutoring at the undergrad and graduate levels when it comes to writing psychology papers, thesis, or dissertation. My clients have included students at Johns Hopkins University, Walden University, University of Maryland, and Montgomery College.

Writing

I provide writing assistance with everything from graduate papers, thesis, dissertation, to College personal essays.
