About John

My name is John, and I am a Chemical Engineering graduate student from Caltech. I spent the four years prior at University of Delaware, where I maintained a 3.99 GPA and developed a solid understanding of the basics of mathematics and chemistry. A great deal of this success was made possible by the really firm basis set in my high school Algebra, Calculus, and Chemistry classes, and I would love to help lay the same sort of ground work for students who need it.

Though I haven't worked with many students through WyzAnt, this is far from my first tutoring experience. In undergrad, I worked extensively through my university, tutoring 100 and 200 level chemistry and mathematics courses. I dominantly tutor individual sessions, but I was also selected by my undergraduate university as the group tutor for courses with nearly a thousand students.

I love chemistry, mathematics, and helping students. I'd love to hear from you soon.

Cheers,

John

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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.

Algebra 1

Despite the "Chemical" in my Chemical Engineering major, my main love has always been mathematics. I am extremely proficient at both solving problems, as well as explaining to students the right path to take to solve any problem of a similar nature.

Algebra 2

Algebra can be a very challenging subject at first. However, given the right help Algebra becomes simply a game of solving little puzzles.

Calculus

What is the difference between solving Calculus problems and tying my shoes? Well, one I normally only do every once in a while, and the other one is Calculus. After several years of both learning and tutoring Calculus, I feel comfortable tackling nearly any problem as well as explaining the method to find a solution.

Chemical Engineering

As a Chemical Engineering graduate student with outstanding grades, I feel very confident in my abilities to solve and explain problems related to Thermodynamics, Kinetics, and Fluid Dynamics.

Chemistry

As a Chemical Engineering student, I pride myself on my knowledge of Chemistry in particular. However, it takes more than just knowing the material to be able to teach it well. On this end I've tutored several undergraduate Chemistry courses, through my University, during my time in college. One of my favorite moments is when I can convince a student that brute memorization is not the way to learn chemistry, but rather that most of the time a firm grasp on basic problem solving methods can lead to the right answer.
