Stephanie R. of Arvada CO USA Tutor Profile

Tutor Personal Information

Name: Stephanie R.
Gender: Female   Age: 31-40
Tutoring Style and/or Experience

My approach to helping students become proficient at solving chemistry problems is simple. I initially assess their understanding of basic chemistry concepts needed to solve common problems and work with students in areas where they are weak. I have found through experience that if you understand core chemistry concepts and why certain chemicals react they way they do, you don't need to memorize how to solve specific problems. I don't believe that anyone will excel in a subject they find to be boring. Accordingly, I work hard to pass on my enthusiasm for chemistry by communicating with students using terms they can relate to and providing as many examples of real life situations involving chemistry as possible.
