Louisiana State University (Chemistry)
University of Southern California (Enrolled)
Every time I inform people that I graduated from Louisiana State University with a bachelor's degree in Chemistry, they almost always tell me how difficult Chemistry, Physics, and Mathematics were for them when they were in school. Unfortunately, this is due to the lack of interactive experimentation in the classroom. I personally believe it is easiest to understand science and math when you are given real life examples and through experiments. Since this is true, I try my best to employ this method when working with my students. I voluntarily tutored students all through high school and college but I also have experience tutoring student athletes at Louisiana State University in Chemistry, Mathematics (up through Multivariable Calculus), and Physics. Furthermore, I was a teaching assistant at Louisiana State University for the first Chemistry Laboratory course offered to science majors for one semester. In addition to this, I have a lot of research experience and understand how the world of academia works. These experiences as well as the many extracurricular activities I participated in have helped me help my students. Even though the primary purpose of my job is to assist my students with school work, I always try to give my students advice for various coursework they may face in the future and some opportunities that may interest them as well.

Taylor is very patient and strives to understand how my daughter processes through her assignments. By addressing how my daughter learns she is helping to correct her behavior to be a better student and understand why she is not understanding the subject.
Taylor taught me how to solve word problems and adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing fractions. She made sure I understand the problem we were solving before moving on to the next question. She was encouraging and she made sure not to doubt myself. I highly recommend her!
Taylor made my daughter feel at ease on their first meeting and helped set the stage for a good foundation review.
Easy going and enthusiastic. I appreciated the quick response and prompt tutor session. Very helpful with science and study skills.
I am studying math for the GRE. She made so much of the math clear for me! Much better than other people I've tried to learn from. She puts in a way you can understand. She is very nice, patient, and smart!
Taylor was able to address my daughters needs quickly with a short session. She seemed to fully understand the subject matter. My daughter was prepared for her test and was able to pass without issue. Thanks Taylor.
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.
All throughout high school and even in college, I have helped many students with algebra. The students I worked with all improved their grades dramatically once I began tutoring them. One of my favorite experiences tutoring a student in algebra was when she had a F at midterms and by the end of the year, she received a B! She didn't let her learning disability hold her back!
My undergraduate degree is in Chemistry and I am about to start my PhD in Chemistry in the fall of 2016. I have tutored all levels of Chemistry and I have even acted as a teaching assistant at the college level for Chemistry courses. I can tutor all levels Chemistry and would be happy to help people prepare for exams as well.
I have tutored organic chemistry ever since I took the class four years ago. My strategy for tutoring this class is helping students organize the reagents in a meaningful way so they will be able to write synthesis reactions on their tests. I also stress general chemistry concepts (ex: chemical structures, acids and bases, electronegativity, thermodynamics, etc.) while tutoring this course to help students learn how to intuitively solve problems. This is especially useful when taking tests with free response questions.
Throughout my years of tutoring, I have worked with many students on their study skills. I always strive to find the best studying strategies for my students. These studying strategies range from person to person and subject to subject so I am always sure to help my students find out which studying methods work best for them for each subject they encounter.
