My goal in working with students is to help them understand the principles behind the subject they are working in. Anyone can understand all the intro sciences well, if they are willing to put in the work and have a teacher that has an interest in helping them get there. I'm convinced that the reason so many students are frustrated by introductory physics, chemistry, and calculus is that they are often taught by people that simply don't understand the topics and couldn't care less if their students learned from them. This leads a lot of students to tell themselves things like "I guess I'm just not good at math" and give up. That's a tragedy.

This is where people like me come in. I've been learning science, math, and engineering for the past 10 years and there are two things I've learned. First, a huge part of learning science is learning how to learn science. There are techniques to learning these subjects and you get better at them the more you do them. As high school or early college students, you haven't learned that yet - I can help you do that.

The second, and probably most important, thing is the cumulative nature of what you're learning. If your algebra skills are really weak, then calculus will really be a struggle for you. And if you don't learn calculus really well, you'll get smoked when you get to physics because algebra and calculus are everywhere. The good news is that if you learn the basics really well, everything else, particularly organic chemistry, is a breeze.

If this sounds like the type of education you want to have, I'd be delighted to help you attain it.

Teaching Experience
-----------------------------

I have a significant amount of experience teaching science and mathematics both formally and informally. I have worked extensively with high school students and undergraduate students. Here is a brief summary:

- Post-baccalaureate teaching assistant for the Dept. of Integrative Biology at the University of Colorado - Denver (UCD)
- I have taught a p

Subjects

Homeschool

Calculus,

Calculus

In addition to my undergraduate experience covering the full calculus sequence - integral and differential calculus, surface and volume integration, Green's theorem, and a host of other topics - I also have a deep background in real and complex analysis, extension of calculus to the complex plane, and many other topics in these fields.
Chemistry,

Chemistry

I have a physics degree from Colorado State University and post graduate work as a premed student on chemistry at the University of Colorado at Denver. Extensive work in helping students improve their performance in the full chemistry sequence: from introductory high school chemistry, to AP chemistry, organic, and biochemistry. Particularly well suited for helping students improve for standardized exams like the MCAT or ACS and AP exams.
Physics,

Physics

I have an undergraduate degree in physics from Colorado State University and worked as a teaching assistant for the physics department while an undergraduate. I have also tutored introductory physics extensively at both the high school and college level. In addition, I have had a large degree of experience in preparing and studying for the MCAT and scored above the 99th percentile on the physical sciences section, which tests physics and chemistry.

Organic Chemistry

I took the full organic chemistry sequence two years ago from the University of Colorado - Denver and finished with the top grade each semester. Beyond that, I teach a summer course for freshman that will be taking organic chemistry the following fall. I have tutored organic and biochemistry extensively and scored in the 99th percentile on the biological sciences section of the MCAT, which tests both subjects.

Test Preparation

MCAT

MCAT

After completing a physics degree at Colorado State University, I enrolled as a post baccalaureate student at the University of Colorado-Denver to prepare for medical school. I completed the full biology and organic chemistry sequences, as well as a year of graduate level biochemistry, genetics, and physiology. Once my prerequisites were complete, I took the exam and scored a 39Q - PS: 14, VR: 11, BS: 14. I am familiar with all of the popular review materials including Kaplan, ExamKrackers, The Princeton Review, and the Berkeley Review, as well as the formal AAMC review material and practice exams. I have helped many students improve their score on the exam, including both those enrolled in review courses or self-studying. I can help with content, review strategies, and tactics for improving performance on the real thing.

Knowledgeable Tutor

George is able to explain many different interrelated topics within chemistry and physics. You can tell he really knows these topics as well how to explain it and makes sure it makes sense! He definitely helps me understand the topics and how they are related!
