Hi, my name is Johnny and I’ll be the one that helps you overpass whatever is stumping you in your math, chemistry, or biology course. I’m keen on not only explaining the material in an easy-to-understand way, but also giving tips that’ll help give you more control over the subject.
I have been tutoring since 2011 and continued tutoring and teaching throughout my undergrad, up until recently, hosting groups and one-on-one tutoring.
Bachelors in cell and molecular biology
I enjoy satisfying curiosity, a characteristic that speaks to our true nature. Guiding someone with the transition from lost to understanding, and then to see them apply that understanding is the very essence of developing ourselves as intelligent and conscience beings
Broke down concepts and made it easy for me to understand. I really like the "aha moment" when he explained dimensional analysis for me.
It was an easy learning process for even the more difficult concepts that can cause a struggle.
It was great! It really helped me understand chemistry better
Clear, Patient, and explains everything step by step.
I ask for two questions before going into a session to best prepare myself for each student:
1) I ask for the specific material, or topic, that they'd like to go over and what exactly they need help with
2) What they expect of me? A student may just need someone to check their work, specific tips on a concept, or a full lesson. What they're expecting changes how I approach the tutoring session
I have a Bachelors in Cell and Molecular Biology
I charge $25/hr, regardless of the subject.
I found out I enjoyed passing my knowledge onto others when I first joined a math club in high school called Mu Alpha Theta. Since then, my college classmates would constantly ask me to tutor them, regardless of class. Albeit somewhat unofficial, this has given me years of experience in teaching in multiple subjects
The different student's I've tutored:
-High school students in danger of failing (mathematics)
-Pre-healthcare (Doctors, Pharmacists, Nurses, etc); undergraduate
-Non-STEM (Mostly business or art students that take STEM class)
All the different subject in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) can seem distinct and are easily taught in isolation. Many know but fail to demonstrate how interconnected all the subjects of science really are. An excellent science teacher should be able to give you quick examples or references to how what you're learning applies in a grander scale and to other sciencific subjects.
A student that wants to ask should ask themselves this:
What is the true problem you're having? Is the problem on this specific topic or is it something else that's more recurring in the class?
Give the situation, "I don't get it" context and parameters, so the tutor can focus on the actual problem and you make the most out of your time with them
