Science and Math tutor
Hello! I hope I can be of assistance to any of you who may need it. I am a proud father of two beautiful children, ages 11 and 15. They are my world and watching them grow assists with my career of helping people. I have 5+ years experience teaching high school/middle school science (Life science, Earth/Space science, Chemistry, Biology, Physical science, Physics) and math (7th grade math, Pre-algebra, Algebra I and II, Geometry, Trigonometry/Pre-calculus).

Hello! I hope I can be of assistance to any of you who may need it. I am a proud father of two beautiful children, ages 11 and 15. They are my world and watching them grow assists with my career of helping people. I have 5+ years experience teaching high school/middle school science (Life science, Earth/Space science, Chemistry, Biology, Physical science, Physics) and math (7th grade math, Pre-algebra, Algebra I and II, Geometry, Trigonometry/Pre-calculus). I have also taught a Life Skills course (which was mixed with Business Math). I have taught at Waterbrook Christian Academy and currently teach full-time at Faithway Christian Academy, both of which are private schools in the Burton area. I was officially a tutor for high school students in the Bendle/Carman-Ainsworth school district for over a year and a half. The majority of my tutoring has been for science and math (mostly math while working for Bendle/Carman-Ainsworth). However, I did tutor in other subject areas, as well as help students in their career paths such as writing letters of recommendation for them. I have also been a substitute teacher on and off for the past 9 years for students K-12 in multiple school districts throughout Genesee County (I still currently sub on some of my days off). I subbed long-term at Kearsley High School for over a marking period while the original teacher was out on sick-leave. I have proctored multiple tests (including ACT and SAT). In addition, I have worked in Summer Science Camps, para-pro positions, special ed classrooms, and other personal tutoring sessions. I even helped my peers with their school work as a student throughout my school career. Additionally, I did an internship as a Teacher's Aide while in high school at an alternative middle school (where I got hired directly afterward). In my experience, I have noticed that every student learns differently. Therefore, no single approach works for everybody. Multiple techniques are required in order to accommodate the many different personalities and learning styles each and every student may possess. I utilize my knowledge and experience to pinpoint what works for a particular student and adapt my lesson plans to specifically fit their needs. I look forward to seeing you all and aiding you and/or your student in your quest for knowledge.
Scott's style of teaching made it easier for my child to grasp the concepts of chemistry. He is an excellent instructor. I highly recommend him!Valerie, 2 lessons with Scott
Patient and knowledgeable
My daughter was really pleased with Scott’s patience. She felt like she wasn’t getting a concept and that he was very patient and explains a different way until she got it. We are really happy with the session and plan on using Scott’s services again. Thanks Scott!Chau, 1 lesson with Scott
I believe he is knowledgeable and patient.
He taught algebra I to my grandson. He questioned my grandson's understanding as he progressed. He spent a lot of time and helped immensely. Thank you. Hopefully our schedules will make more lessons possible.Ginny, 1 lesson with Scott
Great First lesson
The first tutoring session went great! Scott was very personable and my son responded well to him and his way of explaining/teaching. We have set up a future schedule.Derek Danielle, 1 lesson with Scott
Great teaching sills!
Great lesson for my daughter ~ feeling more confident in geometry already! We look forward to continuing working with Scott. Highly recommend!Ericka, 13 lessons with Scott
Scott is very knowledgeable in explaining the concepts of Chemistry and comes prepared to cover the lesson. He is able to accommodate our schedule and recently spent time over two days helping my daughter prepare for her Chemistry mid-term. We have already, and will continue to recommend Scott to others. Thanks Scott!Michelle, 4 lessons with Scott
