Career Experience

I have a Master's Degree in Biology. But choosing my major in college was a difficult decision, as I found all fields of math and science to be fascinating! I did some tutoring while in college, and I have been tutoring math and chemistry with Tutor.com since 2007.

I Love Tutoring Because

I love tutoring because of the opportunity to help the students understand their schoolwork, and sometimes - to help them feel better about themselves in general. Being a tutor means being part teacher and part cheerleader. It's a great feeling to be able to take the student from "I don't know where to begin this problem" or even "I'm not good at math" to "I get it! It makes sense to me now!" I enjoy helping students understand math and science because these are important subjects to know, and I think that with a little help most students can understand the logic behind the math and science concepts. I think the one-to-one connection on Tutor.com is an important feature. It enables us to make sure that each student understands the concepts, and all the student's questions are answered. It doesn't replace the classroom, but is an important supplement to make sure that each student is understanding the classroom material fully.
