Math And Science Tutoring
I recently graduated from Gordon College where I spent my sophomore, junior, and senior years tutoring for the academic support center. As a Kinesiology major with a pre med concentration, I spent many hours studying physics, chemistry, anatomy, calculus, biology, and have become well versed in those subjects. I'm a very patient and flexible person, and I've become very used to explaining many concepts and step by step solutions to solve difficult problems
My first experience tutoring was my senior year of high school. My AP calculus teacher left unexpectedly, so another student and I taught lessons while the school found a permanent substitute. It was very rewarding when the end of the year came around and we found that we understood the material on the AP test. Since then, I've enjoyed helping others to learn and understand.

Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new student?
Whenever I work with a new student I like to ask them to explain what they know about the topic we are going to discuss. That way, I can get a good grasp on what they understand and what are some areas that they need more practice in.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I graduated from Gordon College with a degree in Kinesiology (exercise science) with concentrations in pre-med and health sciences. During my sophomore, junior, and senior years I was employed by the chemistry departments and the academic support center to tutor students on a weekly or as needed basis.
Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.
I will work for an hourly rate that is negotiable per subject and length of time required.
What types of students have you worked with?
I have worked with mostly college students. These students were able to come to weekly review sessions for homework help, test preperation, or just general lesson review, or able to set up a 1-on-1 session if they needed more attention.
What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?
Make sure the teacher is comfortable with problem solving.
What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?
The student should think about their areas they feel they need more practice in. Even if it's just one problem, it's easier for a teacher to help a student when they say "I have trouble with this problem and I don't know why" rather than "I didn't understand the homework".
