Science Graduate Researcher Passionate About Student Success

I teach hundreds of students every semester. With degrees in physics and mathematics, and minors in biology and computer science, I became an interdisciplinary science graduate student at Arizona State University (ASU), where I completed a Master's Degree in Bio-Electrical Engineering. I seek to undo the damage and negative effects students often suffer/endure from poor teaching practices. I strive to replace this distaste with a passion for the fundamentals of the subjects, just as a long line of teachers have done for me. I am constantly researching new ways, and inventing new tools, to teach. Currently, I am writing a book that will make these creative teaching ideas available and inspire further progression in education. Please contact me for professional, high-quality, state of the art tutoring. My extensive background knowledge of how language, art, and science intertwine allows me to appropriately teach children or college graduate students. Here is a brief summary of my teaching experience: 1. Private Math, Science, Language, and Writing instructor and tutor: 14+ years. 2. Over the past 14 years I've developed a specialty helping students with disabilities and learning disorders, most especially (I have extensive experience with) ADHD, but also Dyslexia, Anxiety, Autism, Spectrum Disorders, OCD, OCPD, PTSD, Vision Impairment, and others. 3. Math & Science Tutor Staff: (a) 6 months as a volunteer in a Chandler-Gilbert Community College (CGCC) tutoring center. (b) One year as an employee in CGCC tutoring center. 4. Mentor for Wildcat Middle School 8th Grade Science Classes. 5. Physics Student Mentor - I assisted incoming freshmen students with their transition to the University of Arizona (UA) physics department. 6. Physics Factory Assistant - Helped UA math professor perform exciting science demonstrations and experiments for visiting junior high students. 7. Physics Undergraduate Council - I assist with the retention of UA physics undergrads by offering support and guidance. Represent the interests and needs of these students when meeting with the department head and faculty. 8. My family used to run a summer school for kids. As a teenager, I was a (fun) math teacher for 3 months every summer! 9. I come from a long line of teachers. My mother, both of her parents, and their parents dedicated their lives to education and teaching. 10. I have also tutored foreign students (Italian, Indian, Vietnamese, Chinese, Spanish) in English pronunciation, writing, accent reduction, et cetera. 11. Graduate Teaching Associate: 3 years. I currently teach hundreds of undergraduate students each semester at Arizona State University, while working on a book about science education, with aspirations to become a college teacher and educator.

In addition to making room in his schedule on short notice to tutor our son, Karl provided him with needed confidence to allow him to start understanding his accelerated math topics. Karl was very patient with him and our son is again excited about mathematics. We plan to use Karl on an on-going basis.

Science Teacher & Tutor

(3)
I have been teaching various ages for the past 8 years. I have taught courses in Biology, Chemistry, Principles of Technology, Earth Science, Physical Science, Integrated Science, Biology Laboratory, Anatomy and Physiology, General Math, Special Education Math, Financial Literacy, (Computer Lab and other courses). I excel in communication and interpersonal relationships. I am detail oriented and analytical but also like to look at things holistically from the big picture as well. This helps me communicate scientific and technical information with people who have no prior knowledge of the subject. I originally joined care. com because I specialize in health science for the physically challenged, with exercise and activities to improve function. My work experience gives me more real word examples to relate information to. I encourages everyone to "Do True Science" by exploring with experiments. I am also developing experiments that adapt a college level book for younger students.

Mr. Allen W., is an exceptional teacher with young children. He also has a passion for making science and science experiments fun. More importantly they correlate fully to the lessons and in easy to digest information for the young ages and varied age groups that he teaches. He makes use of the class time in an effective but also absolutely interesting manner for the children. I recommend this teacher as a science teacher for all ages of children. Before we were taught by this teacher my kids were turned off to science at a public and public Montessori school, because they no longer made it fun and the experiments were isolated not connected to the larger picture. Perhaps it wasn't to the fault of the public schools but more to the lack of inspiring science teachers that they had at the time. However, I am grateful recently that my kids again look forward to learning science because of Mr. Allen W.'s excellent ability to strike curiosity of the sciences, in their little minds.
