A Clarkson University graduate with a Bachelor's of Science in Engineering is now offering tutoring sessions for all age groups. Develop practical techniques for problem solving. Everyone has gifts and ability that utilize their unique talents to succeed in their coursework. Explore why a certain answer pertains to a question even when not so obvious. I will try to understand the student's thought patterns in coming up with solutions and redirect the student to step-by- step procedures in problem solving. Also, I am a former All- American collegiate hockey player.

Approved subjects

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

With my Bachelor of Science degree and personal experience tutoring an elementary student, I feel more than qualified to tutor in the elementary subjects. My credentials in grade school were also commendable acquiring a B+ average. Skills utilized by myself for elementary subjects include tutoring pre-GED material covering mathematics, social studies, science, & English- Language & Arts (which is reading, writing & grammar). I touched each subject area in my tutoring however every topic under each subject was not covered. Making sense & answering questions about a passage & the use of nouns, verbs, adjectives, & adverbs in sentence structure (grammar) Also topics in reading were discussed which included fiction, nonfiction, poetry & drama. We also practiced writing essays using proper language. I am fluent in basic mathematics- decimals, addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, fractions, mixed numbers, percents, exponents, square roots, basic algebra signed numbers etc. I am also familiar with social studies including topics in US history, world history, civics & government, economics, & geography. I have an extensive background in science including measurements, evolution, equilibrium, life science, (college biology, college ecology), physical science (3 semesters of chemistry & 4 semesters of physics), earth science (college course in geology.)

Organic Chemistry

Organic chemistry is simply the study of molecules containing the element carbon. My specific technique in tutoring for this subject is to provide visuals to aid the student in delineating between the different hydrocarbons & other molecules. An emphasis would be on memorization because each class & chemical composition is unique yet similar. Once the student gets acquainted with the basics of molecule building, he can expand, learn chemical reactions, solutions, & mixtures etc.. Labs included basic extractions and setting up apparatus such as the distillation method. With 12 credit hours (3 courses) in chemistry acquired in college and grades of B (an A in Organic Chemistry), I feel well qualified to tutor in the subject area. My qualifications also include working in an Environmental Engineering laboratory for a year. In addition all three chemistry courses included a laboratory component.

Regents

With my Bachelor of Science degree in Engineering and high school regents diploma (B+ student), I feel more than qualified to tutor subjects related to the regents curriculum. I also have experience tutoring high school and college mathematics. The tutoring methods used explore the students perspective regarding problem solving- how they view the parameters from their own perspective before given step by step procedures.
