Bilingual Tutor: Chem, Bio, SAT Math, Study Skills, Spanish, English

Greetings! I have a bachelor?s degree in Chemistry from The College of Wooster, a Masters in Chemistry, and a PhD in Environmental Science, both from George Mason University. My professional endeavors have included being a Chemist at the American Dental Association Paffenbarger Research Center, a pre-doctoral fellow at the Carnegie Institution of Washington, a Scientific Liaison at the US Geological Survey, and a consultant for the Energy and Environment team for LMI. In 2007 I became a stay ... [more]


Biology

I have a master's in chemistry and my thesis was in biochemistry.


Chemistry

I love chemistry and love teaching it. I have taught at the college level and have tutored numerous students throughout the years. During my lessons I find out where the student is having a hard time understanding and then present the material in layman's terms. I call this approach "jelly-bean chemistry." Students respond well to it. My sessions are professional, respectful and thorough. I hope that I can help you or someone in your family or circle of friends.


General Computer


Geometry

I have a doctorate in environmental science and use math on a daily basis. My course work included several classes in math and physics. I have over a decade of experience tutoring physics (including geometry) and math to high school and college students.


Microsoft Word


Microsoft PowerPoint


Prealgebra

I tutor other subjects that involve pre-algebra and algebra concepts like pH, thermodynamics, gas laws.


Spanish

Spanish is my first language and I love teaching it. I have found very effective ways to teach my own kids Spanish and will use those same techniques and more to help you or your loved ones learn the language.

Study Skills

I have taught study skills to many students over the years as I tutored them in particular subjects. In high school and college I was a student athlete and through that I learned the need to organize my time so that I could be efficient. Over the years I have also taken note of what helped others and I thrive in school: organization skills, note taking skills, subject reviewing skills, reading to learn. In my sessions I teach these skills to the student and/or help them sharpen those study skills already in place. Study skills must be tailored to each student because each person had a different way of learning and assimilating information. In my sessions we work to discover how the student learns and help him/her sharpen those skills to make them efficient and effective.


Organic Chemistry

I have a MS in Chemistry and a PhD in Environmental Science. The course load required me to take a number of classes in organic chemistry, biochemistry, bioinorganic chemistry, geochemistry. In addition I have tutored many students in organic chemistry in the past and am I confident that I can be of help to those seeking to understand and master the basic concepts of organic chemistry.
