Methodology

I have a bachelors of science in Chemistry and Mathematics from the University of Wisconsin - River Falls. I tend to structure my lessons around the specific needs of my students. I try to focus in on the area's of the curriculum that are giving my students trouble and supplement those areas with hands on instruction.

Background

I've been tutoring math, science and ACT for 9 years now. I have had hundreds of students throughout those years. I've helped many struggling students pass their courses, improve their grades, raise their ACT scores and gain admittance to their school of choice.
