University of Cincinnati (Chemistry)
Hello, My name is Will. I will be a senior B.S. Chemistry Student at the University of Cincinnati. I have Teachers Assistance experience in General Chemistry 1 and 2. I will be in the Cleveland area for the summer and have time to work and help students. I am available this summer but unfortunately I will be traveling back to the University of Cincinnati in August. I am open to online for tutoring if you wish.
I enjoy teaching for simple reasons. Foremost, I enjoy watching students progress and making tangible strides to their goals. Secondly, these are subjects that I have personally enjoyed, and I wish for others to enjoy the classes as enjoyed them. When true understanding happens a student can apply the logic and methods to other subjects so want I hope to accomplish is to not simply help you with chemistry, biology, or other disciplines. I want to help give students the necessary tools to succeed in an academic environment.
As for my grades in college courses I have received an A- or above in Biology 1 and 2, General Chemistry 1 & 2, Biochemistry I, and Organic Chemistry 1. I have earned a B+ in Organic Chemistry 2 and Physics 1 & 2, and Polymer Chemistry. Finally, I scored a 32 on the ACT science section with an overall score of 30.
I have a very open schedule right now but I plan on being quite busy this summer. Hello, My name is Will. I will be a senior B.S. Chemistry Student at the University of Cincinnati.

Since I am new to Wyzant I will be charging the minimum hourly rate of $25. As my schedule fills up the rate will increase accordingly, but the rate will remain the same for current students of mine.
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 taken Advantage Placement American History as a senior in High School. I am a firm believer of the reading,highlighting, and making flash cards out of highlighted material, as the most effective way to gain a comprehensive understanding of history. While I have little formal tutoring in the subject matter, I have been a student of history my whole life and i find the characters and actions of the past fascinating.
In high school I completed Honors Chemistry and AP Chemistry as well as all the required courses for a B.S. Chemistry Major thus far. And Geometry was one of my favorite math class in high school. I understand that it is fundamentally different than other types of mathematics and that can trip up students.
As a college student I have taken two classical courses. Ancient Greek History, in which we studied from the Early Mycenaeans to the fall of the Alexander the Great's Empire and the following Hellenistic Empires. We also studied other Mediterranean civilizations which interacted with the Greeks of that time, Egyptians, Persians, and Syracusian. In addition, I completed Greek mythology course. In high school I completed three years of Latin and still retain some of the language and the corresponding mythology.
I thoroughly enjoyed Organic Chemistry one and two. While it was one of most challenging college course I have taken I found extremely fulfilling when I grasped each concept. I have 2 semesters experience being a Teacher's Assistant in General Chemistry 1 and 2. I feel like I can apply what I have learned as a TA in Gen. Chem as a tutor of Organic Chemistry. My teaching style relies on understanding of concepts rather than mere memorization and the religious use of flashcards.
I have played soccer all my life. My first broken bone came in kindergarten from playing soccer. I have a long and strong relationship with the "most beautiful game". I coached pee-wee soccer with my mother for a number of years. I was captain of my club team, The Cleveland Whitecaps, when we were nationally ranked. I played for Saint Edward High School my Freshman and Sophomore year.
I love the water and I have been swimming all my life, recreationally and competitively. I was on a club swim team for 7 years growing up. And I was a lifeguard for the past two summers ensuring water safety in addition to teaching swimming from ages 5 to 15.
