About Ariel

Hello,

I am an Earth Science tutor but I am also capable of tutoring chemistry, physics, and math. I have a PhD from Stanford University, an MS from the University of Wyoming, and a BS from the University of New Mexico. As a graduate student, I was able to teach as a teaching assistant several times, and I enjoyed it very much. However, most of my teaching experience is at the one-on-one level.

I teach based own my own experiences in the field and in classrooms. My teaching philosophy is rooted in the idea that basic geology is important for everyone to understand. The most important skill I can convey to my students is the ability to “think like a scientist.” Specifically, I try to give my students the tools and background they will need to think critically about science questions outside of the classroom. For introductory students, this means instilling in them a fundamental understanding of earth processes and preparing them to engage with, understand, and interpret the large number of geoscience-related issues facing society. For upper-level students, I endeavor to prepare them to be professional scientists by giving them the skills they need to answer geoscience questions independently.

Science is my passion and I hope to share with students how exciting and fascinating it can be. I am punctual, reliable, patient, and happy to be tutoring. Thank you for your interest.

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.

Adobe Illustrator

I am qualified to tutor in Adobe Illustrator because I have used the program for 15 years. I have produced numerous drawings in Illustrator that have been published in scientific magazines.

Chemistry

I am qualified to tutor in chemistry because I have taken many chemistry courses and because I am professionally trained as a geochemist. I use chemistry everyday.

Elementary Math

Elementary math is commonplace in everyday life. In addition to having a math minor in college, I use elementary math as a scientist on a regular basis. I would be pleased to tutor in elementary math.

Geology

I am qualified to be a geology tutor because I have a BS, an MS, and a PhD in Earth Sciences. I have also worked for three years as a geologist at a university.
