About Jack

As a science major, I will be dedicated to make the subject as clear as possible. I also believe that science and math is not only interesting but also fun and will try to convey that to the student. My experience includes teaching physics and chemistry at the secondary level. As these subjects especially physics require extensive math, I feel I could teach math through basic calculus. I also worked for many years for the Federal government (the U.S. International Trade Commission) where an important part of my job was to explain difficult scientific subjects in a manner that was understandable to the layman. That, of course, will be an essential requirement for my tutoring philosophy for your student. I also want to explain to the extent possible, the importance of the subject not only to an understanding of the universe but also to the needs of society.

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 M.S. in Chemistry from Fordham University. I have experience doing biochemical research and has been an analyst focusing on the chemical industry for the U.S. government.

SAT Math

To improve your score, I would like to also teach you test-taking strategies.
