Sylvia B.

female

red Apple award red apple award - tutoring excellence

"The best part of tutoring is the 'ah-aha', also called the 'aaah, now I get it" moment...

I love working with students, not just talking at/to them...

explaining the why, not just the how...

using real life as examples to allow for comprehension & assimilation...

daring them to 'think this through', not just 'follow these steps'...

watching them go from apprehension and 'I really don't want to be here' thoughts to 'let me do it' and excitement"

Education and Qualifications

school: MWSU, UMC & KU

As an honors geek, I have tutored and taught a broad spectrum of graduate-, college-, high school-, middle school-, homeschool students and adult learners face-to-face (generally at a local library or coffee shop), online (via platforms like 'The Princeton Review', 'TutorDotCom', 'WyzAnt', Zoom etc.) and in classrooms & labs (MWSU, KU, local Montessori school) in both the private- and university settings since 2000.

I hold two Bachelors from Missouri Western State University.

1) BMB (Biochemistry & Molecular Biology)

2) Chemistry & Natural Science

From here, I attended the University of Missouri at Columbia for a Ph.D. in Biochemistry

and then attended the University of Kansas for a Ph.D. in Chemistry.
