Algebra Tutor,, Beaver County, PA, BS in chemistry from Cleveland State University

Methodology

I have experience as a one-on-one tutor for students anywhere from fifth grade to undergraduate school. My "technique" is to disseminate information a little at a time, in the hope that my student(s) will ultimately have their own "Eureka" moment(s) and the indescribable pleasure that goes with such moments. I am also a virtually infinitely patient man. I will spend as much time as necessary with a student to help him or her master some concept which might previously have been unfamiliar to him or her.

Background

Combining both classroom and one-on-one tutoring sessions, I suppose I've interacted with hundreds of students. I will admit that I prefer one-on-one tutoring sessions to classroom settings, where discipline can be an issue. I'm sorry, I'm a teacher, not a disciplinarian. Unfortunately, I appear to be so good at tutoring that oftentimes one session is enough to clear up all confusion. For example, I once had an undergraduate student who was having trouble in the interpretation of really old Greek poetry. When she followed my advice and started reading this poetry out loud, trying to put herself into the poet's mind, all misunderstanding evaporated. Similarly, another undergraduate student was having trouble with quantum theory. Her question was, "but what is the quantum?" I replaced the word "quantum" with the word "photon" and reminded her that energy equals Planck's Constant times frequency. To the best of my knowledge she went on to pass her class, probably with flying colors.

Rates

Rate for a 1-hour lesson. : $25/h

Details

$25 per hour is my basic rate for all students and is largely unaffected by driving distance or anything else. From experience I have found that no session should last more than 90 minutes.

William's resume

Bachelor's degree in chemistry. 40+ years of experience as an analytical chemist, x-ray spectroscopist and electron microscopist. So, in addition to many courses designed to teach one how to operate a certain piece of equipment, I also had classes in failure analysis using scanning electron microscopy and the application of transmission electron microscopy to the asbestos abatement industry. More recently, now that I am retired, I have taken online courses for my own edification and which reflect my own interests above and beyond the purely scientific. These include
*Coursera Class “The French Revolution.” Presented by Peter McPhee of the University of Melbourne (successfully completed)
*Coursera Class “Greek and Roman Mythology”; Peter Struck, University of Pennsylvania (successfully completed)
*Coursera Classes “Calculus 1” and “Calculus 2”: Jim Fowler of Ohio State University (successfully completed.
*Coursera Class “Origins of the Universe, Solar System, Earth and Life.” Presented by affiliates of the University of Copenhagen, Denmark (successfully completed)
*Coursera Class “Exploring the Beethoven Piano Sonatas.” Presented by Jonathan Bliss of the Curtis Institute of Music (successfully completed)
