"in Chemistry with a focus in Chemical Science. My senior research was in chemical education, where we helped local high schools improve their methods for teaching Stoichiometry. By using a method called Ratios and Proportions, I've helped many students in many grades understand and pass general and AP chemistry. Chemistry is also closely related to math, so I've tutored students with the math required to be successful in chemistry."

" Prior to working with Varsity Tutors, my previous tutoring experiences include three years of freelance tutoring with students mainly in middle school and high school.

"Little did I know that this would translate into something much greater when I became a tutor. Never did I think a job would allow me to make such a big impact on students. Tutoring has become an important part especially since I have been studying Mechanical Engineering at the University of Southern California.

" My first experience tutoring was in high school when I tutored third graders in Math and English on a weekly basis. Currently I volunteer at a shelter where I tutor a variety of ages in reading, writing, and math. I think my fondness for tutoring came from my dad playing math games with me in the car on the way to school as a child. It forced me to think up the simplest way to solve a problem, which became increasingly more fun for me over time."

"I find that most students have the ability to answer most questions for themselves with a few properly directed questions from a good tutor. I also find that this method builds confidence in the student I am tutoring. This confidence is really helpful if your child underperforms due to test anxiety. I have developed syllabi for Introduction to Philosophy and Critical Thinking courses at San Francisco State University, as well as instructed those courses based on the syllabi I created."

" I enjoy teaching because it is the best feeling in the world when you finally see the students “get” what has been taught. I teach from a student driven point, meaning the students have to find the answer and can’t get away with “I don’t know." I also make sure the student has ways to remember what was taught using pneumonics. The spare time that I do have allows me to relax by making a quilt or going to the field to play some paintball. On the weekends, you can typically find me at Disneyland or out riding my bike."

" I have also taught soccer at No. 1 Soccer Camps and have worked with kids from ages 8-18.
