Award-Winning Chemistry Tutors in Plainfield, NJ
Erica "... My favorite subjects to tutor are chemistry and math, because I love seeing my students gain a foundation of understanding that allows them to solve new problems more easily. I also enjoy tutoring in English because I believe that communication skills are absolutely imperative to success both in life and in virtually all careers. Regardless of the content, my teaching style is to break larger concepts down to a level that the student is comfortable with. Every student has some background and understanding, and forming connections between what is already known and what needs to be learned is crucial..."

Brande "Having 10 years of experience as a state certified science teacher has afforded me the opportunity to work with a wide variety of students, from special needs to the gifted and talented. This experience, more than anything, has helped me understand each student learns differently, and that the key to education is adapting to each student’s learning style. I was recently awarded my MD, and have a dual masters in education and chemistry. My extensive science background combined with my experience and training as an educator has given me a unique set of tools that help me maximize the benefit from tutoring sessions while making the time enjoyable for the student. As a life-long learner and science geek myself, my goal is to help the student learn the material they need quickly and thoroughly, and to empower each student to become a strong, independent learner.."
Will "... I find one-on-one interactions to be extremely beneficial for improvement in the classroom. I am very adept at working with others and think my time management and leadership skills will be beneficial to any student I tutor, especially student-athletes aspiring to succeed in both academics and athletics. I hope to move at a pace that is challenging but suitable to each individual based on his or her needs. Since I have done well in the prerequisites for medical school, including the MCAT, I feel that I will be an effective tutor in Math, Biology, Chemistry, Organic Chemistry, and Physics at all levels..."

Fouad "...I have tutored high school and university students and helped them improve their understanding of the subjects they were having trouble with and improve their grades. I tutor a wide variety of subjects for students in middle school, high school, and college. These include Algebra, Calculus, Geometry, Trigonometry, Biology, General Biology, Biostatistics, Genetics, Anatomy, Physiology, Microbiology, Chemistry, Inorganic Chemistry, Organic Chemistry, Physics, Electricity and Magnetism, and Mechanics. I enjoy tutoring all scientific subjects especially Chemistry and Physics because I am familiar with the common areas of difficulty that students have in these subjects. When tutoring students, I make sure that they have a solid foundation in the subject being studied and work with them on areas of trouble..."
Lebanese American University - BS, Biology
Shawn "... I remember hearing stories of how I was not quite tall enough as the lab counter and had to stand on my toes to get a better view of the PCR machine whenever she used it. I wasn’t really interested in what it did, but rather, in the noise it made- a low, grumbling hum. Then, there was the fume hood, a glass and metal contraption that I thought was from another world entirely. It had multicolored valves that I didn’t dare touch; although I will admit that I did have the urge to stick my head under the glass opening to look around..."
Columbia University in the City of New York - Current Undergrad, Biology
Lauren "... I completed my course requirements early and am now tutoring full-time, allowing me to devote my undivided attention to my students. I had the privilege of teaching multiple classes during my graduate career, and am excited to work one-on-one with students. I am eager to connect with them on a more personal level so that I may adjust my teaching style to meet the need of each individual. I earned a BA from the University of Rochester in Brain & Cognitive Sciences..."
Sam "...I break down major concepts into more manageable pieces to help students see the larger concept. Teaching is a passion of mine. I have been teaching swim lessons for 5 years, and academic tutoring for the past 3. I have taught people of all ages, from 3rd grade through post-college..."
Maher "...I teach through this thought process, and my goal as a teacher is to use concise, meaningful ways that really get to my students in order to help each one achieve academic and personal success. Tutoring for me is not just about helping my student get a good grade on an exam, but rather its true value lies in boosting my pupil's confidence. Many students feel that they are simply not cut out to understand material, and this feeling is the actual block to learning. My students should and will know this fear is just not true, and I make it my mission to prove it by the time the session is over. I will show them that they came in daunted, and they finished solving the problems that originally intimidated them..."
