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.

ACT Science

The ACT is all about graph interpretation and inferences. Sometimes, this "gray-area" skill is difficult for students who are accustomed to everything being "either-or" and "black and white." I can work with the student, and get them more used to dealing with inferring and gleaning information from texts, references, and graphs. This is a great preparatory skill for college and higher-level math and science!

Algebra 1

Algebra is a cornerstone of not only all higher math, but also all the sciences. I currently teach honors and advanced placement chemistry at the high school, and we use algebra every single day in my class. My students will all tell you that an essential first step toward success in math and science classes is a basic confidence in using the tools of algebra to help solve problems involving an unknown. I have an excellent background, since algebra in my class is not just theory, but the practical application of those methods.

Astronomy

Astronomy is an important part of physical science that encompasses physics, chemistry, and a look at the origins of everything. Here in Central Florida, we have a unique connection to this scientific discipline, with the nearby Kennedy Space Center. As our society moves into the future, with the "Final Frontier" beckoning for exploration and technological advance, this branch of science will continue to grow in pertinence. I can help make it understandable for any student.

Chemistry

I am currently a teacher of honors and advanced placement chemistry at a local high school. I have been teaching science for 5 years in both Orange and Seminole Counties. One of my strengths is taking a rigorous subject like chemistry and making it more understandable, by relating to familiar things in the student's real world.

Elementary Math

Elementary math is a precursor to algebra, which, in turn, is the cornerstone of all high school level math and science. It's a great idea to get strong on it at the elementary level, and it will serve the student well throughout middle and high schools.

Elementary Science

Elementary science sets the stage for the middle school sciences: earth/space, life, and physical. These, in turn, prepare you for high school: biology, chemistry, and advanced placement opportunities. It's important to gain a knowledge of the basic concepts central to science before moving on to these higher levels.

Geology

Geology explains the often complicated processes that shape our world. Understanding geology means understanding not only where our world has been, but where it's going. It often incorporates both physics and chemistry. I can make it all understandable for the student.

Organic Chemistry

I currently teach advanced placement chemistry at the high school level, and in this college-level class, a good deal of the curriculum includes organic concepts such as hybridization, functional group nomenclature, bond types and lengths and their effects on organic properties, inter-molecular forces and their effects on organic properties, resonance structures, and hypervalence. Additionally, I took several courses in college in chemistry. I also regularly tutor several students in college chemistry.

Physical Science

I have several years' experience teaching physical science to both middle and high school age students. I currently teach high school honors and advanced placement chemistry, but have taught physical science, earth/space science and biology. I can definitely make science more understandable for the struggling student, due to my extensive science teaching background.

Prealgebra

Pre-algebra leads to algebra, which has countless applications, not only in the real world, but in the continued schooling that the student will receive throughout high school (and on into college.) I can make it understandable and bring it all down to earth.

Excellent teacher.

Jarrod made my daughter more comfortable with chemistry. He was able to explain things in one hour that my daughter's teacher couldn't convey in weeks. I highly recommend!
