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.

Business

I have an MBA (with a 4.0 GPA). I have been a business executive for more than 10 years. I understand general principles of business and management of all types of organization. My qualifications are practical and experience-based as well as educational attainments.

Genetics

I have a Ph.D. in human genetics. I have performed research in genetics. I have taught genetics at the college and medical school level.

Microsoft Excel

So many projects these days depend on knowledge of Excel. I have a knowledge of Excel that is rooted in being able to use the program for the real world: formulas, reports, what-ifs. I always tell other people: "Give me a spreadsheet big enough and I can analyze the world" [apologies to Archimedes].

Organic Chemistry

I have an education in a number of courses of organic chemistry, including comprehensive organic chemistry, qualitative organic chemistry, honors research in organic chemistry, and protein chemistry and biochemistry. In all I have had 23 hours of organic chemistry, and about 20 more hours in biochemistry.

Writing

A passion for good writing is central to being able to tutor it. If, as I have, one knows how very important the ability to express oneself clearly in writing is, the pursuit of excellence in writing is mandatory. My knowledge, experience, and passion for good writing allow me to be an unsurpassed tutor in writing.

Excellent Tutor! — I am definitely on this road to discovery. I totally do not enjoy working with numbers but here I am and Mr. Ron is so much trying to introduce them to me in a complimentary manner. Making them enjoyable and "arms wide open" so that I may feel completely at ease in what I may ask of Excel. I am conforming. Love the way he teaches am really rather learning my new position myself and also incorpor ...
