My hometown is St. Charles, MO and I recently graduated from the University of Missouri with a BS in Chemistry. I was employed by the university as a science tutor for my last 2 years. I enjoy establishing relationships with people who are motivated to become better students and show a willingness to learn. My main subject is chemistry, but I am also able to tutor biology and mathematics. My tutoring methods are pretty straightforward -- I will do my best to explain material in a way that is easy to understand, but I will encourage students to work problems on their own to prove they have in fact learned the material.
I have tutored 10 students individually and been evaluated as having "outstanding" knowledge, organization, communication skills, attitude and overall tutoring ability. They have said that "he is thoroughly helpful and explains concepts in great detail", he models "good study methods and strategies", and he "describes equations and provides tips to solve them faster on tests."
While I may specialize in tutoring intro level college chemistry and high school chemistry, my main goal is to help students develop efficient study methods and time management skills that can be implemented in any class they take. Together, we can make science and math easier to understand. Let's get to it!
