I am a University Student at Georgia State University, majoring in Chemistry. Alongside classes I am also an official student instructor, which means that I help educate my peers on subjects they are struggling with. I can assure I'd be a good match for tutelage because I am just so enthralled with the subjects I have learned and continue to learn. Anything physics, chemistry, algebra or calculus I would be more than happy to break down and decipher!
My favorite thing to do is try to apply what I know and what I'm learning and see how that might affect future technologies. For instance, the advancement of materials science has great potential in the medical field for prosthesis and sensory-restoration therapy.

First thing I do is guage the students familiarity of the subject - how much they know about what the class is supposed to give you to use in the real world. Then I ask which topics are giving them trouble, and yes, "everything" is also a valid answer. Once I know what to focus on, I can then make a breakdown of topics. Most students tend to learn in one of two ways: top-down or bottom-up. Essentially, that means the student either needs to understand the details to get the big picture or vice versa. With these facets understood, I can orchestrate the foundation and perfection of understanding.
I am a very diligent student that has frequent communication with professors at GSU, so if there is something that I don't immediatly feel I can teach, then I can assure that I know someone who can. That said, there are practically no topics in STEM (and beyond) that I am afraid to tackle, so whether I am teaching you or we are learning together, I guarantee that we will find mastery of the subject!
For online tutoring I offer $20 an hour, in-person is $25. For both options I will happily make study guides, cheat-sheets or practice problems in the included price.
I was addressed by my University and offered a position to be a student instructor due to my performance in class. After I started I fell in love with teaching and discussing science with people from all levels of education!
Mostly college students, though I have taught a few high-school students.
I had the pleasure of sitting in on a presentation on divalent europium by an associate at GSU, which was a fascinating talk on materials science. I also enjoy the talks I share with my leading calculus prefessor, whether we talk science or just about whatever piques our interest.
I would advise students try their best to find someone currently learning similar subjects, as they will be caught up on the most recent breakthroughs in the field. Alongside that, I advise finding an energetic individual, because nobody needs to fall asleep during a study session.
There are a few things students should consider before talking to their teacher: Having a set goal, whether that be understanding of a subject, desire to connect topics, or preparing for a major assignment. After that would be assuring that a teacher or tutor is the right path to success. If it is, then try to narrow down current problems as much as possible.
