Florida Atlantic University (Chemistry)
Hello, my name is Spencer B. and I am a recent graduate of Florida Atlantic University, where I graduated with two bachelor's degrees with honors. For my last two years at FAU I worked as a university-employed tutor/SI Leader and have accumulated well over a thousand hours of tutoring experience with students of all ages and abilities. I consider myself helpful and engaging and have received numerous "Best Tutor" awards from my job to verify this. I love learning and, even more so, helping others learn and look forward to assisting you!
From the most minute detail to the most macro concept, for test prep or a test tomorrow, I am confident we can tackle whatever concepts you are struggling with and master the art of effective learning, together.
My first bachelor's degree is in chemistry (along with a certification from the American Chemical Society), the subject which I have the most experience assisting students in. This goes far beyond just working with students one-on-one, which I have done extensively, but by also designing concise lesson plans anticipating where students typically find the most difficulty and make the most mistakes.
My other bachelor's degree is in political science, which I attained along with a minor in sociology. I have held numerous reviews for subjects of international relations, American history (AP), and American government and politics (AP), focusing on more than just a reiteration of classroom lecture but actual comprehension of concepts which leads students to a truer understanding of the material they are studying.
Overall I would consider myself a pursuer of knowledge and a lover of learning and am very excited at the prospect of working with you. Feel free to contact me, my hourly rate is $50 per hour, and times/locations are negotiable.
Thank you for your interest, I look forward to hearing from you!

Great tutor. Works well with my high school son who can be difficult and typically hates tutors but agreed readily to multiple sessions after working with Spencer. I Highly recommend him.
He knows his stuff!! A true natural in Chemistry. I loved that he was readily available to meet with me and assist me. He helped me better understand the problems to where I was able to solve them on my own with confidence. I am so grateful.
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.
My love of history goes back as far as early grade school and has remained one of my most favorite subjects to learn and help others learn. My Bachelor's degree in political science and minor in sociology has engulfed me with a great deal of American History as it pertains to those subjects in various areas of study. I also took the AP U.S. History course in high school and received a maximum score of 5 on the nationally standardized exam. I have experience tutoring students in general history courses as a university-employed tutor over the past two years. I have learned that when learning history it is not so much about memorizing specific dates or people but more generally picking up on trends and often seeing the bigger picture, and this will be my goal when working with any student in the field of history.
I recently graduated with a Bachelor's of Science in chemistry with honors from Florida Atlantic University, along with a certification from the American Chemical Society. I attained As in both general chemistry and organic chemistry as well as multiple other upper-level chemistry courses.
In addition to this, I have been a university-employed tutor/SI Leader for the past two years focusing primarily on helping students in general chemistry. In my experience, I have learned where students are most prone to getting confused or mixed up on concepts and the best way to present the material in in a clear and coherent manner that leads to greater retention and comprehension of the curriculum.
Lastly, I simply love learning and, even more so, helping others learn a subject that they were previously struggling with. I have received numerous awards for "Best Tutor" for my dedicated work with students and have been told by many that I am a natural and should be teaching the course. These statements are of course often exaggerated by happy students who finally "get it" but I hope this illustrates, in part, why I think I would make an excellent chemistry tutor for you!
I recently graduated with a Bachelor's degree in political science from Florida Atlantic University with honors along with a minor in sociology and a second degree in chemistry. I have a great deal of experience working with students in political science courses, designing lesson plans and exam reviews for hundreds of students at a time as a university-employed tutor as well as working one-on-one and in small groups. Furthermore, during my high school years I took AP American Government & Politics and received a maximum score of 5 on the nationally standardized exam.
I recently received my Bachelor's degree in chemistry where I took and passed with As both Organic Chemistry 1 & Organic Chemistry 2, as well as a two-credit Organic Chemistry Lab. Effective understanding of the principles inherent in organic chemistry fundamentally depend on a sound grounding of general chemistry which is the subject I principally teach. That being said I am happy to review any chemistry topic with students seeking help in this subject as all chemistry is dictated by the same general laws and principles.
I recently graduated with my Bachelor's in chemistry, with honors, taking numerous "physical science" courses in both chemistry and physics. Additionally, I have worked as a university tutor over the past three years and have experience working with students in a gamut of physical science courses including physics and chemistry as well as geography and geology. That being said, I do not claim to be an expert in the field, but rather an arbiter of information provided through resources I would expect the student to bring to any session. Together I am sure we can attain a greater understanding of any subject material we would like to cover.
I recently graduated with a Bachelor's degree in political science from Florida Atlantic University with honors and have taken numerous courses in the fields of political science, international relations and comparative politics. I also have a great deal of experience working with underclassmen in political science courses, designing lesson plans and exam reviews for hundreds of students at a time as a university-employed tutor. Regular correspondence with my political science professors has given be a great deal of insight into the scope and level of comprehension students of politics are meant to grasp at various stages throughout their scholastic careers.
I am a recent college graduate from Florida Atlantic University where I attained two Bachelor's degrees with honors. I also added a minor in sociology to my curriculum vitae, achieving a 4.0 GPA in all my sociology courses. Following in line with my tutoring experience in the hard sciences, social science learning is a true passion of mine which I hope to share with any student I might be working with. I feel I am more than equipped to help students break down often complex, intricate concepts into their smaller pieces to gain a deeper understanding of the question being considered. Deconstruction is a key analytical tool in sociology, as is finding trends and even outlier cases. All these tools must be utilized in such a broad field as the study of society, and I hope to help students use these tools when making their sociological observations and hypotheses.
I recently received my Bachelor's degree in political science with a minor in sociology, areas of studies which heavily emphasize the effective use of history to reflect on political and social characteristics of modern society. As the famous adage goes, "those who fail to study history are destined to repeat" and I have long had a deep passion for the study history, often reading various history books I've collected through my years just for fun. In high school I took both AP World History and AP American History, passing both exams and receiving college credit. Any lessons in this subject would necessitate the use of a student's history book for reference but I am sure working together we can reach a deeper comprehension of any historical topic in the vast span on human history.
