I have a degree in Biology and have worked as a Molecular Biologist and Bio-technician at both Monsanto and Washington University's Human Genome Project. I have also been homeschooling my children for the last 13 years. I am currently teaching high school, middle school and elementary school subjects to my children at home. Some of my recent students have scored as high as a 34 and a 28 on their ACT exams. I have also had 6 science students win multiple prizes at Regional Science Fairs this year. These prizes include trips to international fairs as well as college scholarships. I have experience teaching Latin, Geography and Science in a classroom setting at a group co-op. I can provide references from parents of those students as well as students I have tutored in science privately at my home.

Pam is very prepared each week with challenges for my daughter. She gives her an assignment to do on her own which encourages my daughter's work ethic and mindset. Pam listens so well and can pick up on her strong points as well as weaknesses as she continues to learn more. We love working with Pam!
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.
My ACT prep students usually improve their test scores by at least 4 points. This can make a big difference when applying to colleges and for scholarships. My two most recent ACT students received a 28 and a 34 on their ACT tests. I am experienced at identifying students strengths and weaknesses and then working with them to improve in those areas.
I have lots of experience teaching Algebra and my students do very well on their exams.
I have been tutoring Algebra II students for 5 years. I have also taught Algebra II at a local homeschool coop group to students who have gone on to score 30's and higher on the math portions of their ACT tests. One of my students scored a perfect 800 on the SAT Math 2 subject test. I have a degree in Biology which requires upper-level math to complete and have kept my skills current teaching math through Pre-Calc and ACT prep to several students.
I have been homeschooling for 13 years. I have taught every elementary subject to 6 children, including phonics, grammar, math, science, Latin, geography, history, and spelling. All of my students score very well on standardized tests. I have also taught group classes in science, Latin and geography.
I have 13 years' experience teaching elementary science. I love students who are excited about learning science! I have experience with lots of different topics and curriculum and also love teaching the kids to do experiments to demonstrate the concepts we are studying.
I have been homeschooling my own 6 children for the last 18 years. My oldest scored a 34 on his ACT and received a full tuition scholarship to Hillsdale College. My second oldest is a junior in high school and currently has a 30 on his ACT. I have also coached a team of students through our regional Science Fair for the past six years. Each year, atleast one of my students has won trips to compete and International Science Fairs. The past two years 2 of my students have gone to a total of 5 International Science Fairs and have place 1st, 2nd and 4th in their categores. I have taught various levels of math and science at a local homeschool coop and have also organized geography fairs. My students have taken and done well on the National Latin Exam as well.
I have been homeschooling for 13 years and have taught all 6 of my children phonics and reading at the ages of 4 and 5. I have experience using a variety of phonics programs and tailoring the programs to fit a variety of learning styles.
