Although I'm a new tutor, I've had a lot of experience teaching others. In high school I started a Rubik's Cube club to teach others how to solve the Rubik's Cube in under a minute, and was involved in tutoring for Beta Club among other things. My teaching style is described by others as clear and concise, with a strong ability to take complicated ideas and reduce them to understandable thoughts. I am very excited to take the skills I've developed over the years and help people interested in improving their understanding of math and science!
Besides tutoring, my interests include weightlifting and running, growing plants (african violets are the best!), Rubik's Cube speedsolving, and Super Smash Bros 4! I believe having a wide range of interests is important for a tutor, because learning how to be successful at many different activities is key to understanding how the mind best learns unfamiliar material. Additionally, being well-rounded teaches discipline, patience, and respect for others, which I believe are traits that set me apart from other tutors.
Received an A+ in Calculus III and an A in Differential Equations. Scored a 5 on the Calc AB exam and a 4 on the Calc BC exam. Participated in the M^3 math challenge as a junior in high school.
Received an A+ in General Chemistry, Organic Chemistry I and II, and Engineering Physics I and II. Scored a 5 on the Physics AP exam and an 800 on the Physics SAT. Currently engaged in undergraduate research for Organic Chemistry.

If you asked, Peyton would be willing to break things down to the bone! He was very prepared for the session, and came up with practice problems on the spot, which was very helpful!
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.
I have been very successful as an organic chemistry student, receiving an A+ in both Organic Chemistry I and II. I will be taking additional graduate level coursework next semester. Currently, I am an undergraduate researcher in NCSU's Pierce Group working towards the synthesis and modification of marine natural products.
