Chemistry Doctorate offering in home tutoring in Mesa area with 5 years experience

Methodology

I am available to give lessons to any level chemistry students. I assess where the student needs are having the most trouble initially. I like to review the topic which was discussed the previous week to ensure the student is comfortable before moving onto the next topic the student is struggling.

Background

I have graduated with a doctorate in chemistry with an emphasis in biochemistry. I have experience in tutoring students one-on-one for 5 years in which I have helped in improving students grades. I have also lead study groups for exams.

Rates

Rate for online lessons : $30/h
Rate for 5 hours of lessons : $130
Rate for 10 hours of lessons : $240
