High School Chemistry Tutor
Response time: 2 hours
I work as a chemistry teacher at a private high school. I have a bachelor's degree in chemistry, and a minor in philosophy. Since I am a science teacher I am very familiar with high school science curriculum. I know the textbooks, common student errors, probable test questions, and if needed I have extra practice materials for students to use. I have been a volunteer tutor at MVHS, and I am self employed as a private tutor in some of my spare time. I work for myself, Wyzant, and...
I work as a chemistry teacher at a private high school. I have a bachelor's degree in chemistry, and a minor in philosophy. Since I am a science teacher I am very familiar with high school science curriculum. I know the textbooks, common student errors, probable test questions, and if needed I have extra practice materials for students to use. I have been a volunteer tutor at MVHS, and I am self employed as a private tutor in some of my spare time. I work for myself, Wyzant, and I have clients from the schools I have worked at.
I did organic chemistry research concerning the synthesis of free radicals at my university, and chemistry is my main passion along with tutoring and teaching. I enjoy biology, and I have a background in biology as well (cell biology and microbiology), but not the same extent as chemistry. I like learning new fields, and I have taken a large quantity of random engineering courses (materials, civil, electrical, chem E, thermo, etc.), so I have a solid basic background in sciences other than chemistry and biology.
I can also help with English. I had straight A's in all of the college English and writing courses I took: English 1A/1B, Technical writing (for engineering), debate/public speaking, and philosophy (which was mostly writing). I teach both ESL and English for native speakers. I can teach grammar, essay writing, and reading comprehension. Structuring essays is interesting to me, and I enjoy teaching people how to create more intricate essays. I can speak Russian because my family is from Russia (I am the first generation here), so I can help native Russian speakers improve their English (with attention to mistakes specifically made by native Russian speakers). My English is a lot better than my Russian. I will gladly assist people of other language backgrounds as well.
Please let me know exactly what you need before our first session. I work best when the client is aware of specially what they need help with. ex. a certain topic, help with a grade, prep specific for a test, teacher doesn't follow a book, etc. I have a lot of resources and can utilize them best when I have open communication with the client. I will gladly talk on the phone with you, text, or email before the session.

adaptive teaching to students
Sarah did a good job of working with my 15-yr-old son on honors chemistry. She took the time to find out how he best learns and worked to present info in a way that would work for him.Lenore, 5 lessons with Sarah
Well prepared and helpful lesson
Sarah helped me prepared for a college level Gen Chem 2 exam. She was knowledgeable on the subject, and did a good job of making the material easy to understand. We worked through different practice problems together and she did a good job of pointing out questions and concepts that would likely be on the test. I highly recommend Sarah.Alyssa, 1 lesson with Sarah

Sarah was great in explaining moles and molecular formula during our session. She seems really passionate about chemistry and I felt comfortable with the way she was teaching me. He teaching style is very thorough, but easy enough to understand.Lauren, 1 lesson with Sarah
Really knows her subject
Went over acids, bases, and disassociation, Ka, Kb. I liked how she explained it thoroughly and didn't move on until I was solid on it. She explained different methods to solve problems.Stephanie, 6 lessons with Sarah
