Secondary school and college math/science teacher available any time of the day academic tutoring

Methodology

I am an American male, 27 years old, with experience primarily teaching secondary schoolers and university students math and science. I have a degree in Earth Sciences with emphases in Geochemistry and Hydrogeology that I attained from the University of Minnesota. I feel like my lessons are very fact based and contribute heavily toward the content, so if that is the sort of lesson you are seeking, then hit me up.

Background

I would say that most of my teaching experience is in teaching secondary schoolers abroad in southeast Asia. I have taught A-Level Chemistry and Physics in both Thailand and Myanmar. I have also taught computer science when I lived in Vietnam. So I am most enthused to teach secondary schoolers and/or university students math and science.

Though this was not a position I actually filled, I feel I should mention it since I had numerous day and week-long jobs while I was waiting for the visa the employer wanted for me to be a Chinese worker.
