Background Check: Passed

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.

Chemistry

I taught General and Advanced Chemistry for 30 yrs.
I have my M.Ed in Science Education from U Texas-El Paso, and am certified in Broad Field Science in Georgia, and AP course instruction.
I have mentored other chemistry teachers at Georgia Tech for 8 summers.

Physical Science

During 30 years of teaching, I have taught physical science in about 17 of those years, including 10years in the last 15 years.

Physical science is a composite of both physics and chemistry, subjects in which I have a strong background.

This subject in Georgia is taught in the 8th grade, and again to freshmen in high school who are opting to take the less rigorous sciences chemistry and physics. I have dealt with this age group previously.

I am familiar with many of the laboratory experiments and demonstrations that might be taught, as well as the content of this course.
