Hello, I'm Gene, a well experienced science tutor. I have been tutoring for over 6 years in 5 different countries (mostly Asia). The variety of my students ranges from high school to non-traditional adults and I have enjoyed every minute of helping them get through common struggles with science and mathematics.
Most of my students were individuals with English as a second language therefore I had to adjust and make the subject material very simple in order to achieve results with an average English speaker. My time abroad in Asia helped me to develop a teaching/tutoring style that's enjoyable yet comprehensible for the student. (No one enjoys boredom)
I first started tutoring my colleagues in Nashville, TN (where I went to college) in subjects such as biology, chemistry and calculus. I then moved to Hawaii for pharmaceutical research; while there I was hired by the local community college to tutor undergraduate students in mathematics and in the summer I tutored high school students in algebra II, biology, chemistry and biochemistry.
I went to graduate school in Bangkok, Thailand for pharmaceutical chemistry and I was hired by the school to teach undergraduate and graduate students in analytical chemistry, English in science, and biochemistry. Also while in Thailand I tutored non-traditional students in English.
I moved to China shortly after graduate school to teach A-Level and AP biology and chemistry to Chinese high school students that were going to colleges in the UK or US.
Throughout my time tutoring and traveling, I have built up this resilience to tackle and to encourage a plethora of characteristics of the countless individuals I have met by simply understanding their struggles and what they were in need of to get through these problems.
Overall, I enjoy meeting new students because we can learn so much from each other in regards to the various style of learning. Through my experiences, I know that each individual has his or her own unique way of learning and it is up to consistent basic communication from myself and the student to find the most effective learning style.
I look forward to meeting you and working with you to achieve any struggles you are having with your science or math classes!
My experience in working abroad with students that have English as a second language helped me to improve my style of teaching to make the toughest topics in science simple.
In order to improve your knowledge in a particular subject or to simply improve your test scores, you must take the first step which is asking for help. I am aware of how boring science and math can be and I for one know, from experience, of how one bad teacher or one boring subject can deter from your career path, therefore I am here to be that outside source that can help you tackle those issues.

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.
When I was in undergraduate, organic chemistry was one of my most difficult subjects therefore it challenged me to tackle the subject. Even though I passed the class with an average score, I decided to take it again to sincerely understand the subject and passed the class with an A. Since I understood the struggles with organic chemistry, that alone made me connect with the many students I was tutoring. While in graduate school I was primarily teaching analytical chemistry but some topics were in advanced medicinal organic chemistry such as the variety of reagents in long reaction problems and the mechanisms to create synthetic medicine from a simple phenolic compound. Also while teaching in China, I had to go over organic chemistry methods such as nomenclature and the very difficult, yet fun, spectrometery. My teaching methods usually consist of chemistry models, fun learning videos, projects and real life scenarios/analogies.
