***Now taking new students. Rate is $75 for first hour and then $25/half hour per session*** As I will show, I have extensive academic training in a variety of the natural sciences, as well as an interest and devotion to tutoring and teaching. I have B.S. degrees in Chemistry and Biochemistry & Molecular Biology from Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology, an M.S. degree in Chemistry, and an ABD Ph.D. in Chemistry, focused in Chemistry Education. In each of these programs, I have excelled acade... [more]

One of the best parts about Algebra II is that you finish numbers! The geometry and algebra keep going on into the stratosphere of calculus and variations and multiple dimensions &tc, but at least one big chunk of math wraps up; the imaginary number i "completes" algebra. (And actually, it does exist, it isn't merely a symbol or concept.) I first tutored a friend with her algebra in 1987. Since then I've taken a degree in physics and if you google 'sangaku' you'll see one of my favorite types of algebra puzzle. If the roots and quadratics and polynomials and exponents and rational expre [more]

I graduated summa cum laude with a bachelor of science in physics degree from Pepperdine University in 2015. Beginning my sophomore year at the university, I started running a small business doing private tutoring in physics, chemistry, and math at the high school and collegiate level. Additionally, I worked for the university as a laboratory teaching assistant in organic chemistry, research fellow in analytical chemistry, and research student in solid state physics. Over the course of the... [more]

Hi There, My name is Ashley S. and I am a Healthcare Recruiter. I staff nurses at over 20 different hospitals and facilities in Oregon. I'm sure you're wondering how that would make me a qualified math tutor. Well, I have a degree in Economics. The reason I got into Economics is because of all the mathematical applications used to solve problems with our economy and how to fix them. Ever since I was in grade school I have always had a passion for math. Not only do I love math but I love hel... [more]

I have tutored physics and math students since I was in college, with most of my emphasis on introductory physics courses for students in other departments (e.g. pre-med), and undergraduate math classes, especially single-variable calculus. In addition, I have tutored high school calculus and other math classes. I love working through problems with students and seeing when they grasp the methods and are able to apply them to solve new problems. I enjoy working with students at all stages, ... [more]

I'm currently an Engineering student at Clark College and I'm planning on transferring to New Mexico Tech in the fall of 2015. I was in the banking industry for over 10 years, from retail banking to cash vault services to credit card processing, before deciding to go back to school a couple years ago. Before I started at Clark, I volunteered for a year through AmeriCorps. I was placed at the WorkSource in Vancouver and I was able help to people of my community find jobs by leading workshops o...

Hi, I'm Mary! I graduated with a PhD in Clinical Psychology and am currently working as a psychologist in the Portland area. During graduate school I taught several psychology courses and helped students not only with course material but also with written and verbal communication skills, improving study habits and study strategies, and learning how to take tests. The courses I taught had anywhere from 20-125 students and I worked very hard to make the material understandable and relatable, an... [more]

Hello! I'm a Portland native with a love for math, science and the outdoors. Combining these passions I studied Environmental Engineering at Cornell University. I especially enjoy chemistry and the amazing insights it can reveal about the world around you! Learning is not easy, it takes time, dedication and perseverance but with someone at your side to encourage you, answer questions, and help see things differently it can be much easier. This is why I decided to tutor, I want to help others ... [more]

When I was working on my PhD in physics at Arizona State University, I spent 3.5 years as a teaching assistant. I taught labs and recitation classes for calculus and non-calculus based introductory physics classes. In addition, all throughout my graduate student career, I supplemented my income by tutoring students in university physics. During my time as a TA and tutor, I discovered that I enjoyed teaching; for me, the best part was when I saw the aha moments when students finally grasp a... [more]

I have taught Algebra 2 at ITT. I have tutored one high school student in Algebra 2. I created the the Symmetry, Shape and Space course at Marylhurst University. A second title could be Geometry for Fine Arts students. This course is popular because I apply mathematics to art and nature. Spirals and the golden ratio are used to analyze art from the pyramids to Mondrian. Students count petals on flowers to discover Fibonacci numbers, 1. 1. 2. 3. 5. 8. 13. etc. Students work with compass, string and scissors to design geometric shapes in the same way that Euclid taught ab...
