Tutoring Style and/or Experience

I am currently majoring in Chemistry Education at Taylor University in Upland, Indiana. I was accepted to all 6 colleges I applied to: Wheaton College near Chicago, Miami University in Ohio, Taylor, Cedarville University in Ohio, University of North Florida in Jacksonville, and Bradley University in Illinois. I graduated Dade Christian School with a 3.82 cumulative weighted GPA on a 4.0 scale. On the SAT, I received a 640 on the critical reading, 610 on the math, and 550 on the writing (1250 out of 1600 or 1790 out of 2400). I had a 25 ACT composite. I received a 3 on the AP Calculus and AP Chemistry exams. I was in the 84th percentile on the College Chemistry ACS standardized final, in the 85th percentile on the Inorganic Chemistry standardized final, 61st percentile on the Analytical Chemistry ACS standardized final, and 92nd on the Physical Chemistry ACS standardized final. On the Praxis PPST, I received a 172 out of 190 on the Writing section, a 183 out of 190 on the Reading section, and a 188 out of 190 on the Math section. I tutored a high school student in Geometry and Algebra II as part of my major and worked over 100 hours with younger kids at the Miami Museum of Science. I have played percussion since the 6th grade and was in the Wind Ensemble and Percussion Ensemble at Taylor University. I have taken Calculus I and II and University Physics I and II (I took University Physics II under the newly ABET accredited program). I have taken Organic Chemistry and passed but with a C (it is a very rigorous class). I received a 102.72% in the music section of Art as Experience and a 103.37% in Issues in Economics. I tutored a student in Chemistry online through this service who I later tutored in Business Math, and I am interested in further online tutoring. Since I am going to be student teaching, I am not available for Spring of 2011.
