Looking for a tutor

  • #1
Hello everyone! I am a 10th Grader but quite frankly,I know almost everything that my teacher has been teaching us and it's starting to bore me. I'm looking for someone with whom has had extensive knowledge in science- preferably a college science professor or a university professor whom can educate me. I'm not talking about extensive lecture but a mini lecture and that will give me something that I can research or do hands-on. I'm only asking for about a one hour each weekend and that can give me an educated feedback on Essay about the subject that I was given. I'm sorry for asking a lot from someone here but I believe that I should be a well rounded Scholar.

I would suggest you consider an Online or local Community College course in a subject that interests you. That may ultimately challenge you more and cost less than a personal tutor.

The Online option of class can often be extended up to a year, which would equal about an hour or so a day (chances are you would finish in 3-5 months at this rate).

And you would have one class of college credit to show for it. That may even help if you plan to attend a selective college in the future.

Welcome to the PF.

Do you have a university near you? If so, you could post in the Student Union that you are looking for the kind of tutor you mention. Or you could put a small ad in the university newspaper... :smile:
