I started my education career by tutoring students right after high school and into college receiving a BA in Chemistry.  The request that I usually receive were hard core topics like Algebra, Geometry, Trigonometry, Precalculus, Calculus, General Chemistry, Physics, and Organic Chemistry.

Over time, I learned which teaching methods are most effective for helping students to not only understand the material but to retain it and to apply it during an exam to boost their score.  Now, I focus more on creating videos and online courses that help not just students in my locality but students worldwide who might be struggling with this course.

Best Regards,
