Methodology

First, understand the student's area/s of difficultly. Then, help the student understand the fundamental concepts well enough so they are able to teach the concepts back to me. There is extensive focus on practice problems with step-by-step guidance for each problem type, and then I tie back the concepts to the practice problems.

Background

I hold a JD and two MS degrees (the second MS is almost complete). I've tutored many students in General Chemistry for over 3 years and helped B students earn A's, and C students earn B's/B+'s, with even some A-'s.
