When I studied Chemistry in the graduate school, I taught General Chemistry Lab classes as a teaching assistant. Some students were already in advanced level but most of them were not familiar with basic Chemistry. Some of the students who belongs to the later category, they approached to me and told me their worry of if they could catch up with the class and got a decent grade they aim to. I encouraged them to stop by TA tutoring sessions and ask any (even stupid) questions to learn more about basic chemistry. Through the semester, they diligently carried on what I had suggested and at the end of the semester, they were so happy with their grades.
The second experience I never forget was tutoring a freshmen in a nursing school. She already got an degree in psychology but was not familiar with college level Chemistry. I worked hard with her for 4 months to master general chemistry and later on she called me with her excitement to tell me she got an A in General chemistry class.
Through all of the experience, I realized how much I enjoyed teaching and helping people learn effectively and make some knowledge to be their own. Teaching is a very rewarding job, indeed.

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.
I had almost perfect scores in exams for Calculus 1 and 2 when I was in a college.
I studied Chemistry and obtained Ph.D. degree in University of Iowa and worked at Marquette University as a postdoctoral research associate. During the period, I had taught General Chemistry Lab class and tutored in person to help them understand the subject better and improve their grades.
