Atlanta tutoring professional offers high school, Advanced Placement and college chemistry, organic chemistry, and calculus assistance, as well as kindergarten to 8th grade tutoring in all subjects

Methodology

I have developed my teaching philosophy by drawing from the best aspects of my varied academic history. I was home schooled through high school, obtaining more than a semester’s worth of college credits in the sciences through Advanced Placement testing. I matriculated at a small liberal arts college, and then pursued a graduate degree at Georgia Tech, a large technical institution, experiencing learning as an individual, as a student in small classes, and as a student in classes where the professor never learned my name. I have had the opportunity to teach in each of these environments as well, from individual sessions to classes so large I struggled to remember faces, much less names. The best teaching environments, in my experience, involve a teacher whom students feel is invested in their success, whose respect students desire to gain, and who is demonstrably passionate about the material being taught. My ultimate goal as a teacher is to be able to pass on the love I have for the material I teach, to make my students see the beauty of the subject and develop their own passion for the subject in its own right. I believe that the purpose of education is to awaken a love for learning and instill the desire to pursue knowledge for its own sake, beyond the classroom and outside of testing or career requirements.

Background

I am an experienced teaching professional with a Master's degree in chemistry and undergraduate degrees in history and chemistry. I have worked as a tutor in the Atlanta area for over four years, and have experience tutoring elementary and middle school subjects, high school and Advanced Placement chemistry and calculus, and college chemistry, organic chemistry, and calculus.
