Liz V.

My degree is in chemistry and I also studied a lot of physics and math along the way. I was a teaching assistant, did research during my masters and will continue to tutor students because I love to teach. Sometime in the future I would like to hold a teaching position at a university. I am certified as a supplemental instructor where I took a semester-long course on how to use different teaching styles effectively and match them to individual learning abilities. In my undergraduate program I was awarded a scholarship by the chemistry department to fund my research and another award from the honors department that provided full tuition coverage. I have 3 years experience as a teaching assistant and tutor. My TA position required the teaching of higher level conceptual chemistry and some math on a one-to-one basis, which led to an evaluation based teaching award. When it comes to truly understanding a principle, I believe that it depends on how the knowledge about that principle is gained. From my own experience as a student I realized that I remembered things the best when I figured out the answers myself. That is why I like to try and encourage students to discover things independently while I direct them toward the correct answers. As far as difficult conceptual or mathematics material, I believe that everyone has the ability to understand, but have not yet been shown the material from the perspective they need in order to understand it. Fun Facts: Some of my hobbies are painting, drawing, astronomy and listening to music. I'm not at all good at painting, but get a lot out of doing something creative. I also love doing any type of water related activities like swimming, boating and when I get the chance scuba diving. When I was 16 I got certified in scuba diving and was lucky to have done that in Cozumel, Mexico.

Frog Tutoring says

In 2009, Roland Omene, a TCU bio-chemistry graduate, founded Frog Tutoring. The company originated in Fort Worth, TX, and is quickly expanding to cities all over the country. Frog Tutoring was founded under the belief that all students deserve tutoring regardless of age. We believe the first step in successful tutoring is finding the “right” tutor. That is why we only hire the top students and graduates from local colleges in the area. Each one of our well-trained tutors specializes in at least one area of expertise and is eager to aid in the academic success of the students they tutor. Frog Tutors are not just intelligent individuals, but role models who inspire their students to achieve success both academically and personally. - See more at: http://frogtutoring.com/about_us#sthash.ov47ISCO.dpuf
