About Scott

I have a Ph.D. in Behavioral Neuroscience/Biopsychology, as well as a B.S. in Chemical Engineering. I have taught and tutored students in many different capacities over the past 12 years. I have taught undergraduate university courses in psychology, neuroscience, neurobiology laboratory, and statistics as both a graduate student and professor. I have tutored both undergraduate, secondary, and primary students in subjects such as chemistry, biology, physics, arithmetic, pre-algebra, algebra, trigonometry, and pre-calculus. I also assist my wife in teaching our son math, science, reading, and related subjects within a homeschool environment.

In general, my personal teaching/tutoring philosophy is focused on the following objectives: (1) engaging the student in active participation in learning (i.e. taking ownership), (2) inspiring student interest through enthusiastic presentation, (3) using practical, real-world examples to bring relevance to material, and (4) creating an environment where students feel comfortable and empowered to participate. My approach is to NOT simply present the students with facts and formulas and push rote memorization. Instead, I prefer to employ more thoughtful and interactive teaching methods to promote a deeper understanding of the subjects that generally helps students retain a better understanding and appreciation for the material.

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.

Algebra 1

I have taken the equivalent of six years of math in high school, five semesters of calculus in undergraduate studies (plus one semester linear algebra and one semester of statistics), and one year of statistics in graduate school. I have taught an undergraduate statistics lab as a graduate student and currently incorporate teaching statistics into an undergraduate neuroscience lab course. I also teach mathematics (arithmetic, pre-algebra) to my oldest son in a homeschool environment.

Prealgebra

I have taken the equivalent of six years of math in high school, five semesters of calculus in undergraduate studies (plus one semester linear algebra and one semester of statistics), and one year of post-graduate statistics. I have taught an undergraduate statistics lab as a graduate student and currently incorporate teaching statistics into an undergraduate neuroscience lab course. I also teach mathematics (arithmetic, pre-algebra) to my oldest son in a homeschool environment.

Great Experience With Scott! — I contacted Scott to assist in the data grooming/analysis phase of my dissertation using SPSS software. Scott was extremely helpful and he went out of his way to help me understand the intricacies of the software program so that I would feel more comfortable analyzing my dissertation results. I would definitely recommend Scott O. as a tutor! ...
