About George

I am a retired science teacher. After getting my PhD in chemistry at Purdue University, I was an assistant professor in chemistry at MTSU (Murfreesboro, TN), but came back to Indiana for family reasons and taught physics and chemistry at an advanced high school (Indiana Academy) for 15 years. Teaching physical science also entails a good deal of math and so I also have extensive experience teaching a practical understanding of the mathematics that goes along with understanding and doing science.
I love science, and I love to share the thinking that goes with it, and the understanding of this marvelous world around us.

My experience teaching Physics and Chemistry has provided me with insight of the practical ways mathematics is utilized in the physical sciences and the troubles students have in putting mathematics to work for them. Rather than just learning how to do math problems out of a book, I can show students how to make mathematical insight and reasoning work for them to understand and solve real problems.

My science experience is not just from years of teaching, but also from doing science. Science isn't just information to learn from a textbook but a real understanding of how we look at, and learn about, the physical world. I can offer students real insight and understanding of the bigger picture of science, which makes science interesting, and easier to comprehend. (Real context to the subject matter of the textbook.)

My schedule is very flexible, and I can travel to counties surrounding Tipton county.

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 2

Through my science teaching career, I routinely taught algebra skills in classroom and tutoring situations that helped students better understand the practical aspects of algebra and hos to apply it in problem solving situations.

Very helpful and patient tutor!

George was very helpful and listened to me. He explained things very clearly so that I was able to understand the chemistry material much better! We reviewed some old exams and homework to see where I needed to improve my understanding of the subject matter.
