Throughout my education, I have always had a love for the math and sciences. I've gone through awesome teachers and really crappy teachers, and I know how difficult it can be to learn the difficult subjects of science and math, especially when you have trouble getting excited about the subject. I've been helping and tutoring classmates and friends in these subjects since high school. I'm a firm believer that there is no one who can't understand a subject if it's taught properly.
I want to make sure that the students that I teach actually learn the subject. If the student is not learning or satisfied with their tutoring experience within the first few sessions, they will not have to pay for those sessions. I love teaching, and I love finding new ways to explain concepts to give several perspectives and find the best method of teaching a particular student. I will always try to teach at a level appropriate for the student's level of knowledge in the subject.
I've had opportunities to tutor people from many areas and levels of education. I've tutored students in college, high school, middle school, and I've even helped give home schooling chemistry lessons. So far, all those whom I've tutored have been happy with the help I've given, and have been able to better understand concepts and do well in their courses.
The reason I teach is not for the money, I teach because I love the subject, and I want others to learn and understand it better. Science is often painted as a very dry, difficult and boring subject and as a result, many students are very frustrated and find it difficult to learn. As I teach, I will try to make the subject as painless as possible and hopefully I can inspire a little bit of the excitement I feel about the subject in the student.
I look forward to teaching and tutoring you and would love to hear your feedback! I know how difficult classes can be and I wish you the best of luck in all of your studies!
