I am a recent PhD graduate in Chemistry with 5 years of teaching and tutoring experience. I have tutored and taught students from the high school level through the university level. I fully believe that one on one instruction is a vital component to a student's learning process, and only that level of attention can foster the skills that are needed to succeed. I tailor my lessons to each individual student, trying to relate the course material to real-world scenarios to both foster an interest and forge a connection that can bring about a deeper understanding of the concepts.
My standard rate is $100 per hour of individualized instruction, but I am willing to work with clients to find a system that works for them. If I am required to travel more than 15 miles to meet with a student, the rate may have to be adjusted depending on the situation.
Teaching and Tutoring Experience: 5 years
Average Number of Students per Academic Year: 3-4
In one particular case, a student achieved a letter grade improvement from a D to a B+ in only 3 months of lessons, averaging about two sessions per week. I have also successfully prepared high-school students for AP exams.
At the college level, students often contact me after struggling on a first exam, and I have helped C-students become A-students over the course of a semester.
My teaching experience ranges from classroom and laboratory instruction to individualized tutoring as well as comprehensive exam preparation review sessions. I have 5 years of teaching and tutoring experience at the university level. I also conducted independent research projects as a graduate research assistant while teaching, culminating in a PhD dissertation that involved the use of many of the techniques and concepts that I teach in my classes.
