"Very helpful tutor!"
Merrie, 3 lessons with Jack
I have been involved in science education for over 30 years and I have taught chemistry from the middle school level up to and including pre-med students preparing for the MCAT. There is no magic bullet to replace a students willingness to work and their desire to learn. I as a tutor, simply know how to ask a student the right questions and they are then able to find the answers themselves. Sometimes a student is overwhelmed and just needs help in organizing their thoughts. In addition to problem solving hints and techniques, I will show the student how to more efficiently and effectively read their text.
Very helpful tutor!
My daughter has told me that she found Mr. S's tutoring very helpful. Her main problem was that she did not learn well with the teaching style of her school teacher and so, she was left with a lack of understanding of the topics being taught in class. Mr. S. was able to expand on the concepts she was learning and show her visual examples that helped to reinforce her understanding. He went over worksheets with problems and provided her with his own problems he thought she should try to solve. Overall, Mr. S. was a very helpful tutor who I would recommend to any of my daughter's classmates or any student needing help with Physics or Chemistry.Merrie, 3 lessons with Jack
The rating scale is a little off should be 4 and 1/2 stars. Jack is better than just four stars. For 12/30/2013: "Jack is heaven sent!!"Leah, 4 lessons with Jack
Jack is a great tutor! I worked with him to prepare for the physical science section of the MCAT. Jack is very patient and great at explaining tough concepts like thermodynamics. Working with Jack helped me raise my physical science score by 4 points!Stefanie, 8 lessons with Jack
