About Connor

I have a passion for teaching and learning, and I do my best to engage students in the material. In my full time job I am a chemistry, AP Chemistry, and engineering teacher. I approach learning with a fun and upbeat tempo, and am very patient with those who may not get it on the first try. I also coach volleyball and track and field, and am very interested in helping students grow athletically as well - I was a Division III All American in track and field and recently went to nationals for NCAA Division II in the hammer throw. Music is another one of my passions - I sang in an a cappella group all 4 years in college and had many solos during my time there. I earned my bachelor of science degree in Chemical Engineering from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, and an M.S. in Science Education with a concentration in chemistry from Florida Institute of Technology.

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 have a bachelor's degree in chemical engineering, a master's degree in science education with a concentration in chemistry, and this is my 6th year teaching high school chemistry. This is my 5th year teaching AP Chemistry.

Track & Field

I am a current track and field coach in the throws (shot, disc, and javelin and am capable of coaching hammer throw and weight throw). I have been competing in track and field for the last 6 years, in all 5 of the above events, and I was a Division III All American in 2009.

Knowledgeable and effective tutor

My daughter says she learns from one session with Connor that she does from weeks with her teacher at school. Connor is not only knowledgeble but also can explain the material very effectively. In just two sessions my daughter's confidence level in chemistry has risen tremendously.
