University of Akron (Chemistry)
I have loved to learn since I was in high school. This desire for knowledge continued through college, while attending the University of Akron. While at Akron, I have been a tutor and have already had much enjoyment from teaching students. After working with so many people of all ages, I recognize that hard work is the common denominator. It has always brought me joy to see a student succeed and improve their test scores, because of the time we spend together. Teaching students how to understand chemistry and algebra has been the most rewarding experience I have had. I am now a PhD student at Case Western Reserve University in the department of pharmacology, and I continue to love teaching when I am able.
My subjects of specialty are chemistry and organic chemistry. At the University of Akron, I was in charge of running all the review sessions to prep the students for their organic chemistry exams. I also have a minor in mathematics and can help tutor algebra. During my sessions with students, I want them to reinforce what they have learned and from there be able to branch out to harder problems. I think that a student who is challenged by a problem will learn more quickly when they have an understanding of the basics. A strong foundation is always helpful. I will assign the students homework problems after each lesson in order to make sure that they are not left in the dark with the concepts covered during the session.
I am a professional, and I believe in honest work. This is why I love to hear feedback from students. If a lesson does not satisfy a student or parent then I will not charge them for the session.
I have a flexible schedule and can make time to see students. I do have a 12-hour cancellation policy, but if a lesson is missed then a makeup session can be scheduled.
I look forward to working with you and helping you achieve your academic goals! I have loved to learn since I was in high school.

I am very pleased to speak about the great lengths Tyler went to ensure I understood the material (Algebra) he was tutoring. We spent a total of six weeks together and at the end of our time together, I feel as though I have gained a solid understanding of the concepts. He was kind, courteous and always prompt. There aren't words to describe how pleased I am to have worked with him and I highly recommend anyone looking for help with Algebra to contact him. By the time you are done working with him, you will be a better student because of your time spent together.
Tyler is patient and easy to understand. He explained math in a way that my 7th grader found easy to understand.
Tyler is someone who can relate to anyone and their needs. He makes you feel comfortable and has many techniques to ensure proper understanding of the subject at hand. Being well rounded and many interest makes him a great tutor and mentor. This is truly a win-win situation for us and hopefully for you as well.
Joe's confidence in his math skills continues to improve every week. His Trig/Stats grade is beginning to reflect that. Thank you!
He knows a lot about Organic Chemistry. Would recommend him to anyone that in need of help in that subject. It is rare to find someone that could really teach O'Chem like he does.
It was our pleasure to meet Tyler. He not only is very intelligent and kind, he seems to be a very genuine and compassionate person. I know he is going to help my daughter tremendously with her math.
We look forward to seeing him again.
Tyler has been a great help to me. Thermodynamics is a difficult subject. Tyler strives to teach the material so I understand it. He is patient and reliable. He gives me encouragement too which I greatly appreciate.
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.
While at the University of Akron, I have served as a Learning Assistant to Organic Chemistry. My responsibilities included running two hour review sessions before each exam for all the students. I also held office hours each week in order to help them with their homework. I have done this for over a year now.
