I am a former business owner, and an experienced science teacher of 16 years. I use different methods to get my students to grasp the subject matter we're working on, depending on the student's strengths. I explain concepts in different ways, try to tie them in with the student's own experience, tell relevant stories from my own experience, and use historical and current events to get your student to grasp difficult concepts. Reinforcement can include verbal review, games, and repetition where appropriate. I was raised by parents who were teachers, using phonics and "drill and kill" math exercises. Though downplayed at times since the 1970's, these basic skills served me well, allowing me to work at a faster pace and levels several years above my peers in English and Math throughout my K-12 education. School was always fun for me, and my favorite subjects were science and math. My continued interest in science keeps me up to date on what is happening in the world today. I vowed when I became a teacher that I would never be one of the boring, tired teachers that used to drive me nuts in high school and college. Your student will reap the benefits of my experience and interest.

How do I contact this tutor?

Click the blue “email” button to access NextGuru’s free messaging system. Here you may ask questions about experience, teaching methods, availability, rate... However, for the privacy of our members, no contact information may be exchanged in the free messaging area. When you are ready to make direct contact, click the “Register for trial class” link to register and pay for your 1st trial class.

What is a trial class?

Finding the right tutor takes more than a teaching profile page – it requires the right chemistry… Therefore, all our tutor members have agreed to offer new students a trial class to help determine if there’s a great fit. This means no semester-long contracts… just find a tutor, pay the flat NextGuru trial class fee and have a test run!

What happens after the trial?

That’s completely up to you! You have no obligation to continue classes. If you decide to continue, you work out the details (including schedule and payment method) directly with your instructor. If the chemistry wasn’t right, just come back to NextGuru and you can try another instructor…

How does NextGuru get paid?

All instructors are eligible for free membership – this is critical so that you can have the broadest, most diverse selection of teachers possible. Therefore, instead of paying a mandatory membership fee or a commission on lessons, our tutor members have given up their one-time trial class fee to help pay for technology and marketing costs.
