I am a friendly and patient tutor who is dedicated to my students. I believe that it is very important to get a firm of grip on the fundamental understanding of math and science. Doing so allows students to apply this understanding to multitude of future problems, not just the ones that a student learned how to do following certain steps (a cookie-cutter approach).
I have mentored many students and find tutoring very rewarding, especially when you see how clear understanding of a difficult concept that you just explained to your student builds his or her confidence. Difficult concepts come to different students at varying paces and I respect that. I believe that if my student did not get the concept, it is because I did not clearly explain it. I often try different angles to explain difficult topics. I believe there are no dumb questions and patience is key to tutoring.
I have an in-depth understanding of high school and college level of mathematics, chemistry, biology and statistics. I spent over twenty years applying my skills in academic research labs in biology, chemistry and engineering. I am up to date on modern scientific concepts and technology and eager to transfer my knowledge to students. I love teaching and in addition to my long academic experience, I have taught math and science to my kids since 2nd grade.
I tutor school (mid- through high school) as well as college-level math, chemistry and science students and adult learners. I am able to help students understand their work better and expand their knowledge in the subject. I plan lessons for the topics that students have most difficulty with and tailor them according to their level and needs. I am very patient with the students, understanding that different subjects come to clarity at different paces. I employ various teaching methods from pencil and paper to hands on science. The only thing I ask of students is engagement and an open mind.
I have been in the world of science for over 30 years. My teaching journey started with my own two boys, who taught me different ways of getting a point across to younger kids. I have also educated undergraduate and graduate students in a variety of subjects ranging from elementary math to linear algebra, simple chemistry to advanced biochemistry.
