I have a BA in philosophy.
Experience: 11 years
I primarily tutor and answer questions relevant to the SAT II achievement test with its eight different domains commonly taught in high school chemistry: (1) structure, (2) states of matter, (3) reaction types, (4) stoichiometry, (5) equilibrium and reaction rates, (6) thermodynamics, (7) "descriptive" chemistry, and (8) laboratory basics. When helping students prepare for this exam, I emphasize the first since it constitutes the largest portion, twenty-five percent, of the exam. From there we move onto the second, third, and fourth - since these, collectively, make up over forty percent. We then move onto discuss domain number seven, since that makes up about thirteen or so percent. Only after we have mastered these do we review thermodynamics, equilibria, reaction rates, and laboratory basics (e.g., measurement, equipment, safety procedures).There is, of course, the advanced placement exam as well (and more inquiries are for this test than for the achievement test or for the Regents exam). I am currently transitioning to tutor for the AP test.The other areas of chemistry that I tutor for, write lessons for, answer open questions for, etc include Physical Chemistry, Organic Chemistry, General Chemistry (semesters one and two), and Analytical Chemistry. Biochemistry inquirers are also welcome to contact me.
