- What is your experience as a tutor or teacher?
From September 2010 to June 2012 I worked as a peer tutor at Knox College, tutoring fellow students in Chemistry.
- What subjects are you best at?
Math and Science. My strongest subject is Chemistry, but I am also comfortable teaching math including algebra, geometry, and calculus as well as other high school level sciences such as Physical Science.
- What days and times are you available to tutor?
I have an open schedule and am available most evenings and weekends.
- Where did you attend school? What degrees do you have?
I attended Community R-VI High School in Laddonia, MO and Knox College in Galesburg, IL. I have a BA in Chemistry with a minor in Mathematics received from Knox in 2012.
- What cities are you okay with tutoring in?
Corona and the Riverside areas.
- Where do you want to tutor? In public areas only or in both Public and In-Home Tutoring?
I am comfortable tutoring in public or in-home. I feel that students learn best where they are the most comfortable studying with the least amount of distraction.
- What are your hobbies when you are not working?
I enjoy gaming and arts and crafts. I have a passion for painting and drawing, and when I’m not doing that, you can often find me watching Doctor Who or playing a game.
- What accomplishments have you achieved while working as a tutor?
I have helped many students over my years tutoring, sometimes with something as simple as finishing a lab report, others were more intensive. Over this time I’ve helped many students bring their grades up while also instilling in them a new found love for chemistry. My greatest accomplishment was with one student who was failing at our first meeting, and got a 100% on his final quiz.
- What do you enjoy the most about tutoring?
The look on a student’s face when they finally understand a topic that they were having difficulty with and that student finding the confidence to continue on. The greatest words I can hear a student say is “I get it!”
