About Berford

Hi everyone,

My name is Berford and I tutored various math and science classes for over 10 years. I minored in mathematics while I was in college. Consequently, I am quite comfortable teaching most math subjects (e.g. pre-algebra, algebra, algebra 2) I am also very comfortable tutoring science courses also (e.g. biochemistry, chemistry, physical science) I majored in chemistry while in college and I just love science!

My approach to tutoring is 'personal' and step-wise. I believe that everyone has the capacity to learn almost any subject. Consequently, I like to start off a tutoring session by asking questions to see where the difficulty lies. Afterwards, I use step wise plans that teach a student how to analyze and work through problems. I work problems using my steps and then encourage the student to practice. After that, I will have the student work many, many problems until the student feels comfortable and confident with the subject matter. Moreover, I like to use 'real world examples' of how math and science work. Many of my students have found it fascinating to learn how algebra is used in real life! I believe that discussing real world examples makes learning fun and may also help a student find a potential career : )

It is true that 'anything worth having requires hard work'. I'm compassionate but very disciplined in my approach to tutoring. I tutor others the way that I would like to be tutored (i.e. The Golden Rule of tutoring) I don't feel satisfied with my performance until my student walks away feeling confident that he or she can tackle any problem in that subject! : )

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.

Pharmacology

Organic Chemistry

I taught organic chemistry to pharmacy students and dental students in preparation for exams. I received my master's degree in chemistry with an emphasis in organic chemistry. I tutored organic chemistry for the majority of my college career to undergraduates. I use organic chemistry periodically on my job. (I am a pharmacist)

Pharmacology

I am qualified to tutor pharmacology because I had three years of the subject in pharmacy school. Moreover, since I am a pharmacist I constantly use pharmacology in my day to day practice regarding how drugs function in the body. I also took pharmacology as a graduate student and helped as a teaching assistant while I was in a master's program. Finally, I took many chemistry courses, anatomy & physiology, and biochemistry to help strengthen my knowledge of pharmacology. Consequently, I am comfortable with pharmacology because I am well versed in the subjects that pertain to pharmacology.
