About Scott

I believe in firmly understanding the concepts of the subject so that the solving of problems becomes a matter of applying your solid understanding to reach a solution. This may illuminate multiple pathways to the correct solution, some of which may suit your style of learning and understanding better than the "use this formula" method that becomes a trap for many students. A firm understanding of the concepts will allow you to model the solution to the problem even when the problem is presented in a different style or format from that with which you are familiar. Speed at solving problems comes with experience and a solid conceptual understanding of the subject matter. Attempting to learn the "formulas" which you will apply to a given test for expedience at the expense of a failure to solidly understand the concepts may allow you to pass the class but will ultimately be a lost opportunity and a costly error if this understanding is needed for your further studies or career.

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 hold a degree in Chemical Engineering.

Organic Chemistry

I've taken Organic Chemistry as a Chemical Engineering student and I have been tutoring this subject for a while outside of Wyzant. I've used this knowledge in numerous Chemical Engineering endeavors as well so I also have an understanding of some of the practical applications that helped solidify my understanding.
