I have an M.S. in computational organic chemistry from Oregon State University and I’m an alumnus of UMass Amherst. I’m a published author with over six years of teaching and tutoring experience. Organic chemistry is unique in the way that first principles build on each other throughout the course. I am an expert at breaking chemistry down into fundamental concepts so that students I work with can spend less time memorizing, and more time understanding. Nobody can make organic chemistry “easy” or provide a magic bullet to get you an “A” but I can equip you with the tools to make it possible. I’ve helped hundreds of students over the years. Here are a couple of nice things people have written about me:
During this harsh economic time, searching for jobs can be a very stressful experience. While companies and corporations are laying off a massive amount of individuals and smaller companies are struggling to keep their existing employees, job opportunities have declined massively to the point where people often have no other choice but to stay at home. So, this brings forth the dreaded question, what kind of options do I have during this tough time?
'Module 7: Engaging and Motivating Students' explores various strategies for engaging and motivating your students in a range of different online learning scenarios. It discusses the important roles that curriculum design, activity structure, the relevance of the chosen technology, and effective time management play in creating an enthusiasm for learning in your students. 'Module 8: Evaluation Strategies' examines the importance of evaluating your online teaching practice to ensure that it is effective, and to give you an opportunity to constantly improve. This is especially important when you are first developing an online teaching practice, or when you are trying something new for the first time. We will explore an evaluation strategy based upon four reflective angles: self reflection, peer observations, student feedback, and theory. The module also introduces the concept of learning analytics as an informative tool to enable up to the minute evaluation of your online class.
Have you always dreamt of teaching children or young adults but never gotten around to it? Perhaps you've just graduated from school and you're wondering if teaching is your calling. Or maybe you're a born traveler looking to discover new parts of the world while giving back to the community. If any of those cases sounds familiar, volunteering as an English teacher abroad is exactly what you are looking for.
While there are some exceptions, at most universities (especially larger ones), English professors are hired to teach within a specific field, as seen in the professor hired as an expert on Victorian literature, British Drama or 20th-21st-century American Fiction. In addition to teaching courses in their area of specialization, qualified professors are expected to supervise graduate students (who typically share their research interest), participate in the governance of their department and university (such as serving on committees), and to publish articles and books in recognized journals in their field, such as the PMLA.
A big thanks for your unrelenting support and patience this year, Mary ! I know you have had a tough year but you made sure our tutoring needs were taken care of. You always go out of your way to find the best teacher and best timings to fit our child’s schedule and we are truly blessed and grateful to have you on our account. Big thanks to you for your continuing support !!!
This online teaching service connects students to tutors from computers in their local library, community center, school, after-school program, or from home. To become certified as an online tutor, you must have a degree from or be enrolled in a U.S. or Canadian college, then you must pass a test in your area of specialty and submit a writing sample.
