Hi my name is Mary, and I love to teach/tutor. I have plenty of experience in tutoring the sciences to both high school and college level students.
I have my State approved teaching license for General Science, my master's degree in Chemistry, and my bachelor's degree is in Chemistry and Biology. I decided tutoring and advising are my favorite parts of teaching science, thus I am here to help!! I have tutored all through my college days and into graduate school. While in graduate school, I tutored biology/chemistry and I volunteered to tutor chemistry to students with learning disabilities. When I was working towards my teaching license I tutored high school and college level physics.
My love to teach/tutor translates into you getting someone who is willing to go the extra mile to make sure you truly understand the subject at hand. Tutoring/teaching involves helping the student understand the subject better as well as how to learn better. By helping you (the student) in all aspects of your learning you will do better both in this class AND beyond this class for many years to come.
I love to see the light bulb 'click on' when a student understands a concept or problem we are working. Since I am so very excited about science my students get excited (or at least will put up with learning :) about science; Excitement is infectious especially when I use student directed examples to explain concepts (you like food, here let me explain science in cooking terms).
Enjoy the subject!! Hi my name is Mary, and I love to teach/tutor. I have plenty of experience in tutoring the sciences to both high school and college level students.

Mary is competent, warm, approachable and thorough. She is helping my daughter deepen her knowledge in AP Chemistry. We appreciate her greatly.
These first sentences were written shortly after Mary began and I want to update our feedback about her. She is very committed to our daughter's learning and actually reached out to the teacher to ensure she had all the material she needed to be in a successful partnership. We outlined a plan for the semester and our daughter really enjoys learning the subject with Mary.
My daughter has completed her AP Chem class and she learned the material deeply, loves the content and feels very confident in her foundation. Mary was simply put, an amazing partner to my daughter. She cared very much about how my daughter would do and she would take time to insure she was ready for each lesson. OUTSTANDING and would hire her in a nanosecond again.
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.
I know organic chemistry very well as demonstrated by my years of tutoring organic chemistry, starting in my undergraduate years and all through graduate school. My masters in chemistry means I am well versed in all areas of chemistry, which includes organic chemistry. While I was the lead stockroom manager for Colorado State University educational laboratories, I tutored teaching assistants as well as students on organic chemistry. I am able to help students learn mechanism, common chemical reaction types, and study tips necessary to do well in organic chemistry. I know the major types of chemical reactions and the commonly named reactions. I am able to help students become grand strategists of synthesis, one of the most difficult types of organic chemistry reactions.
