Former engineer, current Biochemistry master's student in Kitchener-Waterloo, looking to tutor in Biochemistry, Biology, and possibly Math and Physics.

Methodology

I specifically tailor my teaching methods to the student. I always examine the curriculum and syllabus for a student before going through online resources and textbooks to pull together any materials that might help them succeed.

I go over specific student goals and preferred learning strategies, focusing on methods that the student feels will best help them.

Background

I have two Undergraduate Degrees, a Bachelor's of Science in Mechanical Engineering and more recently a Bachelor's of Science in Biology, with a cumulative average of 90%.

I have experience in Engineering and Finance, and am currently working on my Master's in Biochemistry at the University of Guelph.

I am looking to tutor in Biology and Biochemistry, but I have previously worked as a tutor in high school Math and Physics and am willing to tutor in those areas as well.

Rates

Rate for online lessons : $ 17/h
Rate for 5 hours of lessons : $75
Rate for 10 hours of lessons : $140

Details

Cancellation Policy: If not over webcam, 3 hours notice or I'll have to charge for 1 hour to cover gas.
