Award-Winning Physical Chemistry Tutors in Brushy Creek, TX
Tyler ...to train science and math students to teach. In this program I developed a passion for working with students both in and out of the classroom. I strongly believe in inquiry-based instruction, which consists of leading students to develop solutions on their own while analyzing their thought process. This allows the student and instructor to discover the student's misconceptions and for the student to correct them. I have found that this method is much more...

Samuel ...in Austin, Texas. I eventually decided to go to the University of Texas at Austin . I graduated with a bachelors degree in Chemical Engineering . During my time at UT I spent 4 semesters working as a tutor for chemistry, calculus, and physics. I also tutored my friends in whatever subjects they needed help in. I find tutoring to be a very rewarding experience and one of the best feelings is helping someone learn.

Bipul ...Therefore, when I tutor I build the framework from the ground up and depend a lot on visual aids (diagrams and charts) rather than formulas and numbers. I believe that there is no such thing as a dumb question and I address each question as many times as necessary . I also include a lot of examples and encourage the students to come up with their own example questions when I tutor.... My teaching philosophy is developing the concept from the ground up. I am very reluctant about making assumptions about the student's background because that discourages the student's participation (I have realized this from my first-hand experience as a student). I start from the very basic of principles (axioms) and tend to show the whole derivation of things if the student prefers or asks me to show it. There is no such thing as a stupid question. I welcome every question equally and address them as many times and in as many different ways as it takes to make the student understand it. I am a very visual person. Therefore, I draw a lot of pictures and use a lot of physical examples to show the application of concepts. Furthermore, I like the study sessions to be as interactive as possible. Therefore, I ask a lot of questions to the students to make sure that they are understanding things as we move along. I also ask the students to come up with their own questions so that we can go through them together because that breaks the mindset of limiting oneself to just the problems in the book. This, I believe, also helps to foster creativity and problem solving.

Gabriel ...and sciences class in college. I think this helps with tutoring because I learned the material multiple times and from many great teachers, so if a student doesn't understand a concept at first, I can hopefully explain it in another way that I've learned. I like working with students that are self motivated and want to have a tutor, no matter their current skill level in a class. Having a great teacher or tutor won't...

Valery ...and helping others learn are two of my passions. Everyone's style is different and I enjoy working with individuals to customize a plan that will be the most beneficial and enjoyable for them. Learning should be fun! It develops your ability to critically think about the world around you, which is an invaluable skill that you will use not only in school but for the rest of your life. I specialize in the sciences and...

Sheikh ...am a graduate student doing MS in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Akron, Akron, Ohio. I have two years of teaching experience. I have been working as Teaching Assistant at the University of Akron. In my teaching experience, I have learnt how to address the student's doubts in a class and keep them engaging. I have also dealt with the students who were struggling in the class and I helped them to stay motivated...

Everett ...know where the difficulties lie, where students typically fall behind, and the pitfalls that creep up on exams. My tutoring style deconstructs concepts in a way that students can personally relate to, and by using visual analogies, I demystify the math between the atoms while not reinforcing memorization like many instructors. Because of my success, my students often told me that I should be the teacher. So I decided to do just that and am...

Justin ...foreign languages. Students at top high schools like Stuyvesant and Brooklyn Tech are especially engaging to work with due to the challenging nature of the material and the lively mind of the student. In addition to my own tutoring practice, I've also been director of a non-profit tutoring center. Under my administration we tracked students' scores and attained the highest average grade increase in the program's history. By guiding other tutors and consulting students for...

Lucas ...very fundamental foundations that once fully understood can be applied to the further understanding of all other chemical concepts. It's like a puzzle that can be solved. Chemistry's workings are rooted in logic. If you stop, slow down, or whatever, to understand a few foundational principles, you will be able to succeed in chemistry. I, however, could not stand the thought of not going to medical school, so I have switched back to that path,...
