I am an enthusiastic scientist who has helped students learn the concepts of chemistry, biochemistry, and biology. I have mostly tutored at the college level but have some experience with high school students taking chemistry and algebra courses. My teaching philosophy is that of "question based teaching", which involves asking a series of questions that help lead the students to a solution. Often, I have found students trying to learn a subject know the material, but they do not know the correct questions to ask themselves when trying to answer practice problems. My goal is to train students how to think critically so that they do not have to rely on a tutor forever and can feel confident when they face their next challenge. In doing so, students will naturally learn the material, because they will have had ample practice.

In my experience, students who I have tutored have received at least a full letter grade better than expected; however, such cases have been a direct result of his/her hard work. I believe anyone can learn a subject and that the defining factors are persistence and dedication.

I have tutored high school students learning algebra in both Algebra 1 and Algebra 2. I have taken courses up to calculus 2 and have a firm grasp on the concepts.

While receiving my PhD at the University of Georgia, I taught an introductory Biology lab section for 5 years. Thus, I have taught biology concepts to over 500 students. Additionally, I have individually tutored students in biochemistry courses. Some of those students even went from nearly failing the course to almost receiving an "A". Ultimately, it was their tenacity that helped them succeed.

I would be grateful to start helping you meet your potential. If you need help in one of these areas and are serious about trying to succeed, please reach out to me. I will do everything I can to help.
