Why You Should Choose Me As Your Science Tutor.
My undergraduate studies were at Virginia Commonwealth University in 1987 with degrees in Biology, Chemistry and Math. I graduated from William and Mary with a MaED in Education in 1990 with endorsements in Biology, Chemistry, Earth Science, General Science II, and math up to and including Calculus. I then took classes at the University of Virginia at the Post Graduate level. In addition to my certifications I have 28 years of successful teaching to the Virginia SOL's.
I have received formal training as a teacher; and have an advanced degree in my subject field. I will come to your home or office, and I also offer live web classes at excellent rates. I am patient, well-organized, exigent and inventive. I am sensitive to the different learning styles of my students I provide students with my own carefully prepared study materials (for free) in addition to the texts we use.
Availability: I am available in Hampton Roads for in person classes Mondays thru Friday as well as on Saturday and Sunday. I am willing to do before school or after school tutoring.
Who studies with me: My student base includes high school and college students trying to raise their grades and/or prepare for standardized tests. All of my young students came to me struggling and are now getting A's. My youngest science genius is 10.
How web classes work: Web classes require a computer, a web cam and a fast (not dial up) connection. You will be amazed at how fun a web class can be! We speak via Skype (free download), and use the chat field as a blackboard. Homework assignments and links are passed back and forth with ease. You don't have to spend one second traveling to class, scheduling is easier, and it's priced right!
