I have been a General Chemistry and Advanced Placement Chemistry teacher since Autumn of 2007. I enjoy teaching and have made it a point to know and understand my students, and in doing so, I have helped connect Chemistry to their own lives.
The first step to teaching someone well, is understanding the topic well. Tutoring doesn't just involve showing somebody how something works, but also helping them understanding why all the other ways aren't correct. My teaching methodology will be based on whoever I am teaching.
Hello, My name is Dr. Norman J. LaFave. I have a PhD in physics from the University of Texas at Austin and a B.S. in physics and mathematics from Carnegie-Mellon University. I have specialized in tutoring students in physics, chemistry, and mathematics at both the high school and collegiate levels for over 35 years.
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.
I love students who just don't get it. I know that my students will always get catch on and understand, if not today then soon. I explain but I don't lecture and I give students extensive supervised practice where they and get help for mistakes and misconceptions right away. One of my adult basic math students told me I was the most patient teacher she had ever met.
I am quite passionate and enthusiastic about chemistry and love to see younger students find interest in the field. I have always enjoyed helping others learn and being able to share my knowledge about the subject.
I am a medical physician with experience in General Practice and Obstetrics and Gynecology. Over years of teaching I have adapted an approach that fits best with students goals. Upon initiating a lesson plan, I encourage students to be open about their goals and commitments, which I feel contributes to success in achieving course performance and entrance to Universities and Graduate Programs.
Over the last 12 years, I've tutored numerous students of all ages and abilities in math of all levels. Most of my students come to me already knowing the specific areas in which they are struggling but for those that may struggle to pinpoint their problem areas, I tend to work through a variety of problems to help isolate their particular issue.
I like mindmaps, flashcards, analogies, I often use diagrams in my own notes and like to write summaries on the topics I’m learning, memory training, bullet points, google slides, working with apps, brainstorming, open-ended questions, discussions, YouTube videos
My teaching method is to first figure out the issue the student is having. I then like to make the problem more relatable to real life issues to help give the student better understanding, and from there I will try to teach the student multiple ways to work the problem out.
I believe in an individualized teaching methodology specific to each person. Some students learn better with visual/audio aids while others learn best from reading. I work with my tutees to determine the most efficient tutoring approach at the beginning and make adjustments as we go.
My teaching methodology is to build upon solid basics and foster problem solving strategies. Guided practice and use of tasks that reinforce the student’s understanding of concepts. Homework, test preparation and effective assignment writing technique.
I am inquisitive and perceptive in order to understand my student's learning style, whether they have a kinesthetic, auditory or visual learning modality, and adapt my teaching methods to their benefit. My tutees excelled in their classes because in addition to excellent academic tutoring, I tutor classwork success and test-taking methods to maximize understanding and score of the course.
My teaching method is to build confidence in the student by drawing the correct answers out of them and to encourage asking questions. At the same time I have with how to take notes better, how to study better, and also how build strong study habits.
Typically for the SAT math section; I would first have the student read through the section, attempt the questions, and go over any concerns they had. However with other more difficult subject levels like calculus concurrent instruction is sometimes required.
I don't believe in one sort of teaching method-- my biggest focus as a teacher or tutor is learning how I can best suit my student. Exploring different studying and teaching methods and listening to/working WITH each student individually is the way to achieve academic success.
I base my classes on the theories of different learning types, referring to the differences between tactile, visual, verbal styles etc. I give lessons up to ages 19, or any level of schooling from Elementary through High School.
I encourage my students to make full use of my extensive body of chemistry knowledge by asking me plenty of questions. The smoothness of our sessions relies in part on the inquisitiveness of my students. I make lots of connections to real-life applications and have an aptitude for explaining difficult concepts using descriptive, intuitive analogies.
I find out what students are interested in and try to connect that with what they are learning. I also use creative methods to help students memorize challenging topics. For example, there are songs to help chemistry students understand the terms "mole" and "Avagadro's number".
My teaching methodology revolves around two main ideas: tailoring my lesson plans based on the individual student's need for each lesson, and specifically preparing the students for exams and other high-point parts of a class, rather than a more general preparation.
I am a 28 year old male named Phil. I am in between teaching jobs and am available to tutor in all of the core subjects. I specialize in Math and English, but I can teach the high school level sciences as well. I appeal to both visual and auditory learners. I have worked with special education students before including those with ADD and Autism. I am comfortable with any student.
I am a recent college graduate from The University of Arizona with my CA Teaching Credential. I strive to make great student-teacher relationships, and present relevant and rigorous lessons.We will first need to outline the goals of the student, then we can work on ways to achieve those goals.
Hello! I graduated from UC Berkeley with a BA in geophysics ('17). I teach high school physics and math, from algebra to calculus.
Hello everyone! I am available as a chemistry tutor to anyone who is in need, no matter the level of education (middle school, high school, college, etc.). I have a Bachelor's and Master's degree in chemical engineering, and one year of PhD experience as well. I am specialized in analytical chemistry, but passed organic chemistry and biochemistry courses with flying colours too.
I have a B.S. in Biology and Chemistry from Drury University. I will be attending the University of Missouri in the spring to pursue an electrical engineering degree. In the meantime, I am interested in teaching math and science to students who may be unfamiliar or struggling with these subjects.
I am a college math education major. I enjoy teaching people math and helping them obtain good grades. When I first start tutoring a student I like to find out where they are. When I actually start teaching them I never want to give them the answers. I want to point out what is wrong and help them find the answer for themselves.
I have been teaching Chemistry, Mathematics and Anatomy and Physiology for 25 years at the high school, community college and university levels. I have worked with all kinds of different students and enjoy meeting new people. I use many techniques to help students learn. I am supportive and creative and look forward to helping student achieve success.
I have earned PhD in chemistry from Howard University. I have been privileged to teaching general chemistry and analytical chemistry as a Teaching Assistant and Chemistry Instructor at the University.
I am an honors college student at Texas State University studying biochemistry who tutors those in elementary, middle, and high school. I like to use what the students already know and guide them towards a better understanding of whatever is causing them trouble. I use lots of examples and guide students step by step through them.
I have a B.S. from USC and a M.Ed. from Columbia College. I taught chemistry for 17 years at a local high school. My lessons are delivered as Microsoft powerpoints and Google slides. I am patient, most days :-), and am happy to move at a pace that YOU are comfortable with. I want chemistry to be an ENJOYABLE learning experience.

Thousands of teachers can teach you chemistry. Find private lessons closest to you.
The entire world is made up of individual elements. From gases and liquids to solids, there are dozens of elements that are either pure in form or, when combined together, make specific chemical reactions. The study of chemistry is really the study of life down to its smallest form. Breaking down life to individual elements can prove tricky though. Chemistry does also require the understanding of certain mathematical formulas, broken down in sometimes confusing chemical forms. For a student who is struggling to grasp this sort of information, it is necessary to utilize the assistance of private teachers who can produce tailor create chemistry private lessons. These individual lesson plans are designed to help a student in what they are struggling with and reinforce what they already know.
Chemistry private teachers are available for most forms of chemistry, ranging from organic chemistry to medicine private lessons. Even the organic chemistry private teachers are available. No matter what course title a student is struggling with or what sort of information a child requires help with, the tutors and private teachers are available to help every step of the way so the child can improve their grades and their overall understanding.
Our professors write articles about their subjects to help you better understand the material.
