About Whitney

As a chemistry graduate student at the University of Cincinnati, I have had the opportunity to hone my skills as an educator in the sciences. I've TA'd many general chemistry and biochemistry classes, and in the process, have tutored hundreds of students. During my career, I have taken quite a few advanced mathematics classes, and was a mathematics tutor at Wilmington College's tutoring center during my undergraduate career. During this time, I also taught supplementary instruction chemistry courses for WC's chemistry department. I have a Master's degree in Chemistry, a Bachelor of Science in Chemistry, with minors in biology and mathematics.

My teaching style varies, depending on the learning style of the student. I like to either have a conversation about learning styles, or go through a brief practice quiz, to determine each student's personal learning preferences. I am not a big proponent of lecturing - I feel that the future of education will be moving away from this style of teaching, and that it tends to be a rather ineffective way to facilitate learning in today's technologically-based, highly interactive society.

When we start, I'll also sit down with the student and have them set personal goals. These will hopefully align with the direction of their class, so I do expect them to come prepared with their textbook and syllabus, and any assignments they may have. I don't find overwhelming them to be helpful, so I'll adjust assignments with them according to their current workload.

I am currently available for tutoring in a public place of your choosing (libraries are preferred) M-F evenings, and most weekends. I prefer to work in-person, but if online is an absolute necessity, we may be able to work something out. My rate is $50/hr for in-person sessions.
