I have experience tutoring high school science, GED, algebra, and high school English. I have an undergraduate degree in geology and a master's in water resources science. I am passionate about helping students learn and enjoy the subject material. My methods usually include taking a cue from whatever materials have been provided by the student's primary teacher(s) and working with the student to help engage them with the subject. I also try to bring materials that I have that will make the learning experience more hands on. For example, when tutoring geology I will bring rocks, minerals, or fossils to help show the practical application of what we are learning. I try to be very responsive to the needs and interests of the student.
In addition to tutoring students who are enrolled in public school, I also have experience tutoring home schooled kids in math, science, GED, and SAT math in order to prepare them for college. This tutoring occurred in a small group setting, and I created my own lesson plans to communicate the subject matter. This included discussions, readings, powerpoint presentations, and homework to help the students grasp the material.
My rates are negotiable, so please contact me even if you aren't sure what you can afford.

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.
