About Maya

I am an experienced teacher specializing in teaching High School and AP level chemistry. I have taught general chemistry courses with full autonomy at the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign. I also specialize in teaching science and math to students at the elementary, middle and high school level. I find teaching small groups of students and being able to witness their learning process very satisfying. I specialize in augmenting the school curriculum by thorough study and help in the process of building a sound basis for science concepts on which all learning eventually rests. I try to make the learning process as enjoyable as possible by breaking it down into easily assimilated parts.

Over a period of time this helps students retain material better. I try my best to tailor the learning process based on the students learning temperament and establish a satisfying mutual relationship.

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

I have a PhD in Chemistry and have completed relevant coursework in math. I regularly tutor math (pre-algebra, algebra, geometry) for middle school and high school students. I can impart a strong grasp for the topic under consideration and build the concept by using proven step-by-step methods by helping the student reason the problem out on their own.

Chemistry

PhD and postdoc specializing in synthetic organometallic chemistry
Masters and Bachelors degree in chemistry ( major: inorganic and organic chemistry, minor: physical chemistry)

Organic Chemistry

I have taken organic chemistry coursework for both my Bachelors (BSc) and Masters (MSc) degrees. I have taught introductory organic chemistry at the freshman level as part of GCHem introductory Chemistry 101 at the University Level with full autonomy. I have a doctorate in Chemistry utilizing organic chemistry fundamentals and applications.

Prealgebra

I have a PhD in Chemistry and have completed relevant math coursework. I regularly tutor students in math (pre-algebra, algebra, geometry) at the middle school to high school level.
