"Hello and thank you very much for taking the time and visiting my tutoring profile page. My name is Maxwell and I am available to help you or your child with Chemistry, Biology, and Math. My formal education began with chemistry as an undergraduate. I then attended graduate school where I used my chemistry background to develop artificial blood vessels for use in a clinical setting. This work has allowed me to publish in prestigious scientific journals and attend numerous national/international conferences. In the upcoming year, I will be attending a business program in California. As a lifelong student myself, I understand and have lived through the difficulties of having to do well on standardized tests and exams in school. I can speak from many years of experience what works and what doesn't when trying to learn difficult and abstract concepts. I take tutoring and teaching very seriously. Understanding fundamentals is essential for future success. Furthermore, my teaching style is very different than most. I do not lecture, but rather employ a Socratic approach to learning. Throughout my tutoring sessions I ask students extensive and stimulating questions to pinpoint areas of weakness. In my experience this style of active learning as oppose to passive learning is far more effective. In the end, my goal is to have those that I am advising reach a level of comfort with a subject so they are then able to teach me the subject they were originally having difficulty with in the first place. Typically for students in high school or middle school I ask the parent(s) to sit in the first tutoring session with their child. This allows the parent(s) to understand how I teach, and to ask me any questions or concerns they may have. Please feel free to ask me any questions." less...
