About Taylor

Good day, my name is Taylor and I would love to help you learn Science and Math. My background is as an Aerospace Engineer for Lockheed Martin but now I am a teacher at an independent school in Shaker Heights, Ohio. I currently teach high school Physics and Chemistry and have extensive experience in Math in addition to test preparations. I have worked with both a traditional problem solving based approach as well as the modeling approach that is being adopted by more progressive science curricula. It is my belief that any student can learn a subject as long as they understand how it can be used in their lives. I work tirelessly to support my students with any need; extra instruction, extra practice of concepts, or simply a fresh voice to quiz them on application to ensure comprehension. The true payoff for me as a teacher is to see the excitement in my students eyes when they grasp a concept that has eluded them.

I have been tutoring students privately for two years and have had tremendous success improving my students baseline scores to a place that they and their parents are happy. I have am willing to work on both standard classroom preparation as well as standardized test preparation. My tutoring sessions are custom tailored to what you as the student require. Some of them take the form of extra classroom style instruction but personalized for a one on one environment. They can be working through assigned homework and ensuring true comprehension as opposed to simple memorization. For students who want to challenge their understanding I can craft new lessons that expand on their knowledge of a topic and push their expertise to new levels. I look forward to helping my students achieve their goals and master the content in a fun and relaxed atmosphere.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

ACT Math

I look forward to being able to help you master mathematics for the ACT math section. From geometry algebra to calculus I will work with you on everything from brushing up on your skills to mastering new concepts.

ACT Science

I would love to be able to help you master the science necessary for the ACT science section. Whether you simply need to brush up on your fundamentals or full instructions on new concepts I'm willing to work with you to make sure that you get the score that you deserve.

Algebra 1

If algebra one is causing you trouble I would be happy to help give you a leg up on the material. If you need extra examples to help you understand a concept or need material reviewed I will ensure your comprehension of the topic.

Algebra 2

As a former aerospace engineer and current science teacher I have a very skilled grasp on advanced algebra and can help your son or daughter master these skills as well. From test prep to knowledge review, your student will get the best prep possible in Algebra II.

Biology

Having studied Biology for my master degree, I have a deep understanding of the biological processes that students would be required to master. I have specialties in genetics and evolution and would be willing to work with students on everything from introductory biology up to AP.

Calculus

I have extensive knowledge in Calculus and I would love to help you learn the material no matter the level. I have experience up through differential equations and can help you conquer the material in order to be successful in whatever class you are currently working on.

Chemistry

I have a degree in Aerospace Engineering and currently teach Chemistry and Physics at an independent school. I have an extensive background in both mathematics and the sciences. As a private tutor I have experience in both classroom tutoring as well as standardized test preparation. I look forward to being able to work with you.

Geometry

No matter if shapes are giving you trouble, equations of a line got you down or even tricky angle mathematics, I can help. I would be happy to teach you any and all geometry in order for you to gain the mastery in the subject that you desire.

Physics

I am aerospace engineer who currently teaches physics at an a private school in Shaker Heights. My passion is teaching physics and I would love to be able to help you unlock the mysteries of the physical interactions of our world. I can help you learn new material, prepare for exams or even for the SAT II test.

Prealgebra

If the beginning of algebra is causing you trouble then why not have someone help you understand this tricky subject. I will work hard to ensure that topics that are proving difficult are broken down into easily manageable pieces and that the learning can go at your pace.

Precalculus

Pre-calculus can be a tricky subject and I would love to be able to help you master these tough concepts. From polynomial factoring to compound interest, I can help you master the difficult concepts necessary for success in this subject.

SAT Math

Thought the standardized nature of the SAT can be intimidating, I can help you learn the tricks and strategies that will ensure that your math scores are where you want them to be. From review to new instruction I can help you both learn and retain the material.

Trigonometry

Trigonometry can be a difficult subject to tackle, if you need some extra instruction or some review to ensure your comprehension and knowledge before the big test I can help.
