About Makaela

I have been tutoring Math and Chemistry from middle school through college levels for the past 8 years. I earned a major in Math and minor in Chemistry at a small liberal arts school, after excelling in both subjects in high school.

My main goal in tutoring is to help students learn to use the tools that instructors and textbooks have provided for them. I love watching the growth in students throughout the course of a class, and the learning that inevitably happens. I have enough experience at this point, that I have the ability to explain problems in many different ways depending on how the student understands the concepts.

I love math and chemistry. I love the clarity of answers and the progression from simple concepts to more complex ones. Calculus and beginning chemistry are my particular areas of expertise, but I am qualified to tutor everything that leads up to these steps.

I look forward to connecting with new students. I hope that I can help you to become a more proficient student.

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.
