Highly experienced chemistry teacher to tutor at your home or public venue

Methodology

My teaching method is to draw the student out about what they don't understand, in a fun and non-threatening way. My vast experience has familiarized me with the myriad ways students can get held up when they are trying to understand chemistry.

Background

I have 35 years experience teaching chemistry, and have tutored for two years. Students respond to the gentle but challenging method I use, to determine what is preventing them from a full understanding. I am now retired from fulltime teaching, and can devote my time to private students.

Rate for 5 hours of lessons : $60
