About Dustin

I am a highly experienced tutor, I have tutored math and chemistry for about 7 years and I currently work as a chemistry tutor at a college. I'm extremely patient with people and I strive to make the subjects I tutor clear to everyone.

I am most familiar with the math and chemistry courses offered at Johnson County Community college and the University of Kansas since I took my courses from those colleges. I have also taught a technical math course at Washburn Tech, though only for one semester.

I know how difficult it can be to grasp these technical subjects and I strive to help those seeking such knowledge I feel far to many fail due to a lack of assistance in these subjects and tutoring is my way to bridge that divide.

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

While attending JCCC I took Technical Mathematics 1 and Tech Math 2 courses earning BS in both. These courses covered everything from basic math through to a pre-calculus level.

The book used in these courses is written just how I teach providing clear definitions followed by examples. It is also written in a multidisciplinary perspective providing examples from many different areas of study. I have kept this book for reference.

Calculus

I took Calculus 1 and 2 at KU passing with B and C respectively.

I find most peoples problems with calculus come not from the calculus itself but from difficulty with logarithmic, exponential, and trig functions. So before I start tutoring anyone in calculus I start with those to be sure you're good with them.

Chemistry

I took general chemistry 1 and 2 at KU getting Cs in both.

I recall taking general chem and not quite getting it. It didn't start to make complete sense until I started tutoring in organic. It was then that I realized that chemistry is like dating. Opposites attract and form more stable relationships, it's the subtlety that will kill you.

Armed with this I found chemistry easy to tutor at most levels.

Organic Chemistry

I took Organic one at the University of Kansas in 2005 and passed with a B. I took Organic two at the Univerisity of Kansas in 2005 and passed with an A (finished something like 13 out of 500 students).

I then spent the next 4 years running discussions outside of class and tutoring 1 on 1 and in small groups.

I also have notes I created notes for these classes that summarize all the essential topics covered over the two courses.

Prealgebra

While attending JCCC I took Technical Mathematics 1 and Tech Math 2 courses earning BS in both. These courses covered everything from basic math through to a pre-calculus level.
