About Walker

From an early age, I knew that science would be in my future, and in high school I realized that chemistry would be my focus. I took every opportunity to immerse myself in science and math during my high school years. During my college years, I spent my summers working for a local textile company performing chemical research. After graduation, I thought I would be doing the same thing until a former high school teacher called me about a job opening. I haven't looked back since. 9 years later, I still love what I'm doing on a daily basis. Outside of teaching high school chemistry, I have also been a physical science and a physics teacher, and have tutored many students in all of the above as well as different levels of math. My ideal student isn't one that necessarily makes straight A's, but rather one that will work their hardest at every endeavor. I simply want to be there to support them and to help them to achieve the best that they can.

I am a teacher during the day, so I am available for tutoring in the afternoon/evenings as well as on the weekends. I understand that circumstances can change from day to day, so I offer a 6-hour cancellation policy, but I am flexible with rescheduling makeup sessions.

Math is an essential component in my curriculum (chemistry and physics), and I aim to inspire students to have the same passion and comfort for math that I do.

I have taught chemistry for the last 10 years, both honors and general chemistry, and am also AP-certified. From my sophomore days in high school, I have always had a passion for chemistry.

I'm flexible with time and locations for tutoring. If you have anything particular in mind, please don't hesitate to ask. I look forward to helping you find success in your studies.

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.

Algebra 1

As math is a core component in my profession (chemistry), I am fairly comfortable with a variety of math levels. I have been a math tutor from geometry to trigonometry for the last 6 years at my school.

Chemistry

I majored in chemistry in college and have taught both Honors and General chemistry in the high school level for the last 9 years. I am AP Chem certified.

Physical Science

As a science teacher, I have spent my tenure in the physical sciences (chemistry and physics). I began my teaching career teaching Honors chemistry and 8th grade Physical Science, and did so for 3 years before focusing my attention towards chemistry. I have tutored students in Physical Science ever since and have also taught summer school in the subject.

Walker is awesome!

My son said that after 15 minutes with Walker he was able to understand a couple of concepts he had been struggling with all semester. He was dreading going to the tutoring session, but came home in the best mood because he now understands the concepts. My son scheduled another session with Walker before he left!
