ExperienceLearning, especially a subject that is challenging, can seem difficult and even unattainable. What I love about being a tutor is helping students see they can learn a subject that seems impossible. My goal in tutoring is to help raise students' ability to achieve. This means caring that they both learn the material and also learn to think positively about themselves and their potential for learning.
I am willing to think outside of the box to help students understand a subject. This may mean using different analogies or trying a hands-on experiment (always safe and simple ones!). I will get to know your student and try my best to explain the material in a way that makes sense!
I majored in Chemistry with an emphasis in Biochemistry at Wheaton College in IL. I have a love for teaching and explaining things. I also majored in Christian Education; therefore, I have a working knowledge of pedagody (theories of education). I have been taught to use creative and effective methods to help learning happen. I have tutored in Chemistry previously. My two most recent students both had increased success during the duration of tutoring. One was scoring in the 90s within the first few weeks, and the other was able to work up to scoring an A on her final exam.
