"I specialize in tutoring High School and Organic Chemistry, though I also tutor in math up to geometry. When I teach and tutor, I try to get my students to go beyond the "plug and chug", memorize-how-to-get-the-answer mode and help them gain a deeper understanding of the systems they are using. 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, I'm informal, interesting, and lots of fun. I have a lot of experience translating science into ...
