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.

Chemistry

I am a recent Ph.D. graduate in chemistry from Wake Forest University. I have had great success in tutoring chemistry students in both high school and college general chemistry.

Study Skills

I have tutored for the past 10 years, in subjects ranging from elementary math and reading, to college chemistry. I work on students with organization skills, study methods, and test preparation. I believe that my 11 years of college and graduate education has allowed me to become a very organized person, that is able to pass down skills that I have obtained to be successful.
