College graduate in chemistry gives chemistry lessons to high school and college levels in Portland

Methodology

Hello, my name is Kulan.

I am a recent graduate of Willamette University's Chemistry Department, with a focus in environmental/analytical chemistry.

I am most equipped for tutoring high school level chemistry (including AP) and introductory chemistry at a college level; although I believe I am also capable of tutoring for most high school level math and physics courses.

My teaching techniques are typically unique and catered to the individual I am working with and their primary educational provider(s). Typically students of mine have a primary educator and my role is to provide a patient, educated resource to help them understand their academic materials and personal learning pathways.

As a teacher, I am focused on finding a dynamic with my students that emphasizes their strengths as a learner and my strengths as a teacher. My general technique is to help my student identify the subject matter they already understand and which components of it that they need further help understanding. Once a baseline of understanding is identified/established, we may build upon it to create longer lasting, foundationally supported understanding of new subject matter.

Background

I have been tutoring in chemistry off and on for approximately 2-3 years now.

I have taught many (>10) students in college level introductory and environmental chemistry and 1 student in high school level chemistry.

My students have generally developed a much deeper understanding and appreciation for the subject matter they are exploring, and typically report increases in both grades and interest in their courses.

For more information, see my CV below.

Rates

Transportation Fee : $3

Details

My rates only change if I must take public transit to my student's location. In this case, I add $2.50 to cover the bus fair.
