Chemical engineer offering lessons in ESL, mathematics, chemistry, and personal development for all ages

Methodology

My teaching approach changes based on the student and their needs. After the first few sessions, I am able to pinpoint my students' improvement areas. My most successful students are those who practice outside the tutoring session. 2-3 hours a week will not lead to significant improvement. I assign work to be completed outside of tutoring hours.

Background

I am process engineer at chemical manufacturing site in Louisiana. My background is in chemistry and chemical engineering. I have been a tutor for 5 years now. I've tutored students in elementary school and students in college. In the past, my lessons have all been in person, but now I am transitioning to virtual lessons.
