I have taught children and adults chess since 2005. I've done lectures as well as private lessons. I am currently the 1st Board and Captain of the University of Pittsburgh Chess Team. I ran a chess club in Wyncote, Pennsylvania until I left and came to Pittsburgh. I have been playing chess since 1st grade, and I am quite passionate about the game. I also care for my students and improving their performance in tournament and casual play. I am a one-on-one instructor. If chess rules are not known such as piece movement and lack of notation keeping, I will teach you that first. I will gauge your playing level after playing some games with you. From there you will learn tactics, openings, general positional strategy, endgame technique, and etiquette appropriate to your level.

I graduated high school in late October of 2012. I am not currently in college. I am working twords bettering my future. I enjoy helping others and I find it easy. I used to be tutored and I hated it because the tutors seemed to not care if I got it. I make sure the person or people I am tutoring understand and remember how to do what I am asked to teach them. In high school my teachers used to send me to other classes and tutor kids in the middle of class. I am extremely flexable and can help just about anyone I try to teach. I will not say every because no one is perfect and I'm not going to pretend I am.

I love finding out how exactly students learn and being able to make learning an enjoyable experience for them. I think that it is not enough to help students learn; they should be taught how to learn. I am a strong believer in learning concepts before applying them to situations. I am a very visual teacher, utilizing props, graphs, drawings and other useful tools to impress the subject matter on students. I also believe in the "see one, do one, teach one" method. By the end of my instruction, students are not only able to complete the problems, but are able to walk through them and "teach" me how to do them. A person will have many teachers in their lifetime, but few of them will be educators. As a Forensic Chemistry graduate with a minor in criminal justice, I have a fast array of experience. I have worked in accredited laboratories and have helped to process real crime scenes and evid

When a student is challenged with a physics problem, they feel overwhelmed because they do not understand how to approach the problem. For example, making a sandwich you first use the bread to contain the other ingredients such as the meat, vegetables and condiments. This basic understanding of ingredients on how to make a sandwich is applicable to the atom. An atom is made of protons, electrons and neutrons. This is why I have enjoyed teaching because once one can understand the way in which a student absorbs information, the teacher and or tutor needs to provide the information in that manner. I know and have demonstrated the ability to do so. Selected to work with students in Physics lab courses, teaching concepts and techniques, answering questions, and providing help. Adeptly described physics material to students who are unfamiliar with physics, meeting students’ needs. Utilize

As indicated above my teaching has not been in a formal setting. I practiced on the job by 1) knowing what I am talking about, 2) listening to the person desiring knowledge, 3) allowing that person to come to believe that there is no mystery or magic to it, 4) explaining not just the "how" but the "why" of it and finally, 5) practice-correct-practice. As a manager and coach I have formally and informally trained employees within my unit and provided same to those interested outside my area. Many have said "you should have been a teacher" over the years but more lucrative pursuits were my focus. I have taken the time to volunteer for Habitat for Humanity to teach a financial literacy class to a prospective homeowner. My interest motivated me to attend the Financial Literacy Commission meeting in DC on May 27th at the US Treasury Builidng and it gave me ideas on how to merge my pet project
