"As a molecular geneticist working in pharmaceutical discovery, I spent my career understanding and applying math, chemistry and biology in a real world context. Through WyzAnt, I now share this experience with many successful students who benefit from my practical and pupil-specific explanations of how things work and how they make sense to anyone if presented in a manner that makes sense to a particular individual.

I have worked as a research scientist and executive in Biotechnology for thirty years and put four children through college in the United States. I know how to explain apparently complex issues to people at many levels of sophistication without distorting the truth and being friendly, approachable and flexible. My experiences with WyzAnt students have all been very positive and I really love it when I hear "Oh, now I get it!," which I hear a lot. The essence of these subjects is that they have to make sense and require understanding, not rote memorization.

Becoming proficient in math and science requires directed practice and problem solving on the part of students and should be actively enjoyed by both the student and the tutor. There is nothing in science and math which cannot be explained to an open mind and these subjects are actually aimed at making the enormous complexities of our world comprehensible. Math and science are therefore very accessible to anyone who wishes to come to grips with them. Honest." less...
