Award-Winning Physical Chemistry Tutors in Silver Spring, MD
Steven ...had the opportunity to work with Habitat for Humanity, both building homes and tutoring the children who lived in the neighborhoods we were working in. It was incredibly rewarding to work with the same students for multiple years and watch them develop, both as students and people. As an undergraduate student, I also worked as a teaching assistant for Organic and Analytical Chemistry labs, helping students complete experiments and understand material from the lectures.

Craig ...given proper patience and instruction. Furthermore, I have learned that every student has a unique style of learning. My tutoring philosophy embodies this notion and I strive to tailor my lessons to fit each student’s academic strengths. Having been successful in my academic career, I have learned exactly what it takes to achieve great test scores and high grades. I believe these methods are easy to follow and I am more than willing to share!

Nikhil I believe in a logical but fun approach to tutoring. I try to design plans that reinforce subjects in multiple ways, to encourage memorization and ensure that students don't get bored. This approach befits both the teacher and the student. I have extensive experience tutoring students in mathematics, and I have tutored in science as well. I have also tutored unofficially on test-prep with students in my area.... If you provide students with a structured plan and help, they will teach themselves.

Daphne ...minors in Spanish and International Area Studies. I am currently working at the NIH. I have experience tutoring college, high school, and middle school students. During tutoring sessions I like to pinpoint where the problem areas are and begin by working with students on the fundamentals. Once the basics are covered I like to work through problems together as a way to learn material, but ask that students spend some time studying topics at home/doing...

Seychelle ...biology, but I also learned to be strategic with my time, and get the most out of my classes and homework. Upon completing the premedical program with flying colors I took the MCAT in mid July 2015. As someone who struggled with math and science in high school, but excelled in these same areas with the application of organization and effort, I feel confident in my ability to guide other students through a similar process....

Gerard ...best way to tutor a student is to address each students needs and gain an understanding of their unique thought process; nobody solves a problem the exact same way. With many educational institutions adapting a philosophy of "teaching to the test" rather than an understanding, I feel an individualistic approach is the best way to complement this paradigm. When I am not working, I enjoy working on my project car, swimming, and running.

Greg ...Science in Physics and a minor in Mathematics. Physics has been an interest of mine ever since I started riding roller coasters; I wanted to know how things worked. I have experience as a tutoring fellow for the physics department at my university. In my spare time, I love to do a variety of activities including golf, mountain biking, reading, and hiking. I also consider myself an amateur card player and I have a deep...
Magdalene ...School was hard for me, and while I liked my friends, I hated the humiliation of just not getting it. What took others just moments to understand, took me hours to maybe just kind of get. It was exhausting! With the help of teachers, tutors, and my parents, I made my way through elementary school and soon discovered that I was gifted! (Imagine that!) After the 5th grade, school became easier in a lot of ways....
