About Tanner

I studied undergraduate at the University of Arkansas where I received a bachelor's in chemistry. I taught supplemental instruction there for 2 years for economics. I tutored at the university's tutoring center for chemistry and Spanish as well. I enjoyed helping students achieve success in their classes.

My degree is in chemistry and I have a passion for it. Since it's something I thoroughly enjoy. During my tenure at the University of Arkansas, I tutored mostly general chemistry, with focuses in analytical chemistry and organic chemistry. My research of three years was focused in gas chromatography/mass spectrometry, and I am very comfortable helping with separations, as well as method development for various solutions. I want other people to experience the same feeling of success I've had the pleasure of feeling after working hard on a difficult subject. Unfortunately, I've met a lot of students who dislike chemistry. Not because of the material being boring or uninteresting, but because the subject matter is hard.

I fell in love with the Spanish language during my junior year of undergraduate. I took 2 years worth of Spanish in 11 months, then traveled to Mexico to practice. During my last year at Arkansas, I tutored elementary Spanish while taking intermediate level Spanish. My girlfriend, who speaks Spanish, and I, often speak in Spanish at home and on the phone to practice. It's one of the few things I really love, and I want to help spread that love to other people.

I've had to learn how to study the hard way. During high school, I never studied, so that caused a lot of problems in college, so I really want to help people avoid the problems I had. I remember, in one of my classes, I "studied" for the test, but still got a "C". I was furious. I spent that whole semester trying to make up for that test, and each time trying new study habits. Luckily, I made up for the bad grade, but I wouldn't have had to if I knew how to study beforehand. My goal is to help you learn how to study before that hard class.

I taught economics SI at the University of Arkansas for 2 years. I was a Supplemental Instruction (SI) leader and taught an average of 5 hours per week. The course was a combined macro and micro course. After teaching the course for 1 and a half years, I was promoted during the last semester to Mentor, which meant I taught the course, but also taught the other SI Leaders how to teach the course.

I would love to help you any way I can. I want you to be successful and enjoy school. Please, contact me if you need some assistance.

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 2

I have completed up to Cal 1, and have helped with Chemistry, which uses a substantial amount of algebra.

Chemistry

I have a degree in chemistry from the University of Arkansas. I studied there for 3 years, and now attend Dental School. I have taken many chemistry courses and maintain a high level of understanding for many of them.

Economics

I taught Supplemental Instruction for Econ at the University of Arkansas for 2 years. The class I spent my time with the most was a combined macro/micro course and I have done a lot of extra work in both.

I studied Spanish at the University of Arkansas for 1 year, completing four semesters of classes and traveled to Mexico to practice, as well as practicing at home. I have achieved advanced level in the academic context.

Study Skills

I tutored for three years at the University of Arkansas. I often times would use various methods such as flash cards, created quizzes, and group work for teaching when I taught as a TA. Most of my study skills training related to Economics, which is what I taught.
