About Erin


Bio

I am a high school chemistry teacher with thirteen years experience (all levels of first year chemistry and AP Chemistry). My AP students have a 93.3% pass rate (national average is around 54%) and an average score of 4.2. In the past I have also taught anatomy & physiology, biology, and French I & II and before that I worked in the printing industry and as a lab technician. I have two bachelor's degrees in French and history and two master's degrees, one in French and the other in secondary...

I am a high school chemistry teacher with thirteen years experience (all levels of first year chemistry and AP Chemistry). My AP students have a 93.3% pass rate (national average is around 54%) and an average score of 4.2. In the past I have also taught anatomy & physiology, biology, and French I & II and before that I worked in the printing industry and as a lab technician. I have two bachelor's degrees in French and history and two master's degrees, one in French and the other in secondary education. I also have nearly all the credits completed for bachelor's degrees in biochemistry and biology, and I am close to completing a doctorate in curriculum and instruction. I hold KY teacher certifications in chemistry, biological science, French, social studies, and English as a Second Language.

I tutored peers throughout college in chemistry and calculus as well as GRE prep. I have been tutoring middle school, high school, and college students since 2006 in reading, math, science, history, French, and test prep (ACT, SAT, SAT subject tests, AP, GRE, and Praxis).

I enjoy helping students to come to the realization that they are able to master subjects that they had previously found difficult. My goal is to approach learning in the way that is most helpful for the student. I try to be as flexible as possible in both the instruction conducted during sessions as well as in scheduling.

I also conduct online tutoring sessions for a reduced rate ($45/hour) and this allows me to connect with students needing help all over the country. I have found that this particularly fits the needs of college students and adult learners.

Building academic confidence with my son

Erin is working on both Geometry and Chemistry with my son. He's really struggling this year in both subjects and the one on one time is building confidence and helping with his performance on exams.

Jonathon, 36 lessons with Erin

Patient

She is very patient and clear with her directions. She helped me understand my math homework and what we were studying in class, when I was having trouble understand my classroom teacher's directions.

Krista, 75 lessons with Erin

Awesome Tutor

Erin did a wonderful job tutoring our daughter. We had a short time before the ACT exam, but with just 3 lessons, our daughters Math score improved 3 points from her prior testing. I highly recommend Erin to anyone who needs help improving their ACT scores.

Gloria, 4 lessons with Erin

Excellent

My daughter has made excellent progress under Erin's tutelage. We will be purchasing another set of ten sessions for the summer.

Great tutor!

I have worked with tutors before on-line, so to work with a tutor face-to-face is great and to have a tutor that is patient and really knows her stuff is a wonderful feeling. I wouldn't be able pass my Chemistry class if it were not for the help I am getting from Erin, she is definitely a life saver. I was drowning in Chemistry before I found her, not I don't feel so overwhelmed knowing I do have someone who really knows Chemistry to help me through this tough process. Thank you Erin and WyAnt for being here for me.

Ethel, 7 lessons with Erin

Very Responsive

Erin was extremely responsive and my daughter got off to a great start with the first session. Erin was on time to the first session and reviewed both Advanced Chemistry and Pre-Calculus. My daughter is excited to work with her.
