"I am a recent graduate in Chemistry and Secondary education, and a certified Chemistry teacher. I specialize in tutoring High School and Organic Chemistry, though I also tutor in math up to geometry.

When they learn the basic framework of something, be it atomic structure or algebra, and then learn how everything else flows logically from it, students retain information better and can make use of it in new situations. In the classroom and one-on-one, ...

Not every student learns the same way, so I introduce material in different ways until it becomes relatable to the student.

" Ever since I was a little girl, I have dreamed of being a teacher. I would play "school" with my little brother by helping him read, write, and complete his math homework. I decided to do the very best for myself by attending one of the nation's top schools for teacher preparation, Michigan State University. Through my schooling, I have learned an incredible amount regarding children, the way they learn, different methods for teaching, and strategies for helping young ones achieve.
