Chemist with 5+ years of analytical experience and B.S. from Sac State looking to help out in the Rocklin-Roseville area.

Methodology

I prefer knowing what I am going to tutor before showing up so I can get a good idea on how to best prepare. Chemistry is a massive subject with lots of challenging content. From my experience, I've found that removing the stigma or pressure of feeling like you need to know everything helps improve grades - and I try to pass that idea on. It helps one focus on what they actually need to practice and leaves the areas they're more comfortable with up to their own skill set.
Obviously, I'd prefer all my students to aim for 100% but realistic expectations are also important. Ideally, we can reach a point where the student feels comfortable setting higher goals.
Lesson structure would mostly be practice problems (usually from assignments given to them in class). I like guiding them through the first few to get things rolling, passing on any tips or tricks I may have on the subject and ultimately try to get the student to understand how to solve "types" of problems rather than specific problems.

Background

I have five years of analytical-environmental chemistry experience and currently work as an Air Pollution Specialist for the California Air Resources Board.
I graduated from Sac State with a B.S. in Chemistry (Fall 2017) and received mostly A's in my Chem classes (occasional B's).
I have done on and off tutoring with good results and am motivated to help those willing to learn.
