About Mason

I have taught and tutored in many different subjects in various parts of the world. Having benefited from one-on-one and small group instructions myself, I know the value in meeting each student at their level and working with their strengths to generate a command of the subject matter. I don't believe that anyone is "bad" at math or "bad" at English. We all are capable of understanding anything with personalized, careful instruction.

I have extensive experience as a TA, as a tutor in math and science, and as a writing instructor. I believe my ability to move fluidly between these subjects has given me a unique outlook in explaining math and science to literature-minded people and vice versa.

I travel frequently and am looking to tutor online. I am always near my computer and will respond to any questions or emails almost immediately. Because I am frequently overseas, if you are up studying late at night I am probably awake; I'm happy to work flexibly with your schedule.

As a cum laude graduate in Geosciences, I am familiar and comfortable with tutoring both 1st and 2nd semester college physics, chemistry, math up to Calculus 2, and especially all earth sciences including physical geology, sedimentology, stratigraphy, structural geology, geochemistry, and geophysics.

I was a TA twice in Stratigraphy and Sedimentology and once in Structural Geology. In both courses, I was responsible for running the lab portions as well as assisting students one-on-one during and after class. I have tutored geology students while performing geochemical and data-system based seismological research in South Africa and Italy, respectively.

In addition to science, I have always loved to teach literature and writing. With a minor in Creative Writing, I am able to tutor college level composition and criticism. For the last four years at the UA Poetry Center, I have been teaching ages 4-18 varyingly during the week and weekends. I also designed and taught the UA Poetry Center's first collaborative writing course for parents and their children to experience the joys of writing together.

There are few things more rewarding than successful communication between student and teacher. When both are able to share or discover passion for a subject, there is a tremendous, symbiotic growth. Tutoring is special because it allows for this kind of deeper and more worthwhile connection to the material.

I have always enjoyed teaching at all levels; the best way to solidify knowledge of a subject is to help someone else learn. I look forward to learning with you!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Algebra 1

I have tutored many hours in maths, including Algebra 1.

English

I have a minor in English-Creative Writing from the University of Arizona. I have designed and taught writing curriculum for students and adults with the UA Poetry Center.

Geology

I graduated cum laude with a Bachelor of Science in Geosciences from the University of Arizona. I have studied and performed research in a myriad of disciplines within this category including: Geochemistry, Seismology, Structural Geology, Stratigraphy, Sedimentology, and Geophysics. I am a co-author on a paper to be presented at AIPG this coming winter.
