Showalter Science Tutoring
While my knowledge and education focus on high school and undergraduate science and math topics, my greatest assets come from my history of tutoring professionally at my local community college, giving me a broad range of experience working with students from a variety of backgrounds and needs. This has taught me that the first thing I need is buy-in, so I focus first on relationship, which builds motivation and helps me to identify each student’s strengths and challenges, and from there develop their skills and confidence.
What I enjoy most is seeing a student grow in confidence over time! Helping a student to restore their own sense of competence and embrace their power to learn and take risks is a great honor.

Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new student?
Each person’s needs are unique. With that in mind, the first session is generally dedicated to an interview/consultation, to get an idea where to begin, and how much time you can commit to practice between sessions.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I have a BS in Materials Science, and 8 years experience tutoring at a college level.
Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.
My current fee for a 50- to 55- minute session is $40.
The consultation is free, but is focused on assessment and planning, rather than content.
If I need to cancel or reschedule with less than 48 hours of notice, I offer a free session.
Beginning in Spring 2023, I intend to offer a monthly commitment rate.
What types of students have you worked with?
I have primarily worked with students at my local community college. This means I have worked with a broad variety of students, including traditional, non-traditional, and high school students in dual enrollment. This diversity of experience has taught me both that every person’s needs are unique and that most of this variation on a theme.
