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 Math

In High School I took 4 years of math and in undergrad I took 8 semesters of math. I received a 36 on my ACT Math and I have tutored my son for the ACT (he received a 34 in math).

I have a large amount of experience in many science fields. I have a PhD in Zoology, which included 129 semester hours of Biology or Biology related courses (Zoology, Biochemistry, Botany, Physiology). At the US Naval Academy I took 2 semesters each of General Chemistry, Physics, Meteorology, and Oceanography plus one semester each of Fluid Physics, Geology, Waves and Tides, Oceanic and Atmospheric Processes, and Underwater Acoustics. At Navy Nuclear Power School I took Chemistry, Physics, and Nuclear Engineering. In graduate school I tool two semesters of Organic Chemistry and 3 semesters of Ecology. I have taught University level Introduction to Biology/Zoology multiple times, in addition to Freshman Biology and AP Biology. At International School Singapore and St. John’s School I taught sections on Physics, Radiation, and Environmental Science.
