I love to tutor for all the "aha!" moments my students have.
Currently, I am working on a degree in medicinal Biochemistry from Arizona State University. In the past, I've tutored the following major courses: Biology 1 and 2, General Chemistry 1 and 2, Organic Chemistry 1 and 2, Physics 1 and 2, as well as Calculus 1 and 2. I also enjoy tutoring elementary, junior high school, and high school level students in ALL subject matter. I have a deep understanding of these core subjects and promote learning from the fundamentals. My goal as a tutor is to not only teach difficult subject matter, but also to promote students to think critically and problem solve so that they develop the skills to be independent studiers.
Q & A
What is your teaching philosophy?
My teaching philosophy is to focus on the fundamentals. I wish to collaboratively work with my students to identify the problem and solve it.
What might you do in a typical first session with a student?
I always try to gauge my student's knowledge in the first session. I like to ask them about their strengths and weaknesses. I also like to ask them what their goal is for the current tutoring session, as well as future sessions.
How can you help a student become an independent learner?
To become an independent learner, a student must learn how to find the right resources to help them. In my teaching method, I encourage students to become independent learners by guiding them to online and print resources.
