Qualifications & Experience

My love of teaching comes from a life long love of learning. As a Ph.D. graduate, I know that hard work and dedication to learning can pay off. As a private tutor for the past 10 years, I have had the pleasure of helping hundreds of students realize their own potential and see their grades and test scores improve.

I specialize in tutoring chemistry - from high school level, AP chemistry, and freshman general chemistry, to advanced physical chemistry courses. I also tutor math classes from algebra and SAT prep to all levels of calculus.

One of my goals is to explain concepts to students in a way that they understand. I strive to tailor each lesson to the specific student's learning strengths. Rather than just show the student how to solve a problem, I teach the student how to read and understand the problem, and how to find a pathway to the answer. I am able to establish an excellent rapport with students so that they feel comfortable learning in a one on one tutoring atmosphere.

I look forward to hearing from you and helping you achieve success!

I’m a junior in AP chemistry and Lori has really helped me. Arguably the most challenging class offered at my school, and I’ve reached a 101% with her help; something I never thought was possible. With no chemistry background, I was really nervous, but even in just an hour a week she gets in the all the concepts I need and explains them well, and in-depth in a good time! I will definitely continue with her through this year, and the next as I prepare for the SAT and ACT, as well as the AP test. I started out failing my weekly tests, but now I score top in the class, and it’s been just a few months of tutoring. I’m so thankful for her, and the time she takes to explain things to me!

I loved working with Lori. I have a traumatic brain injury but with her teaching style I was able to keep up with the fast paced chemistry course at Arizona State university. In addition to the brain injury, the last chem I took was 15 years ago. She took me through problems step by step. It was early, but when I employed her services, I was borderline D/C range now I'm going into the final tomorrow with an 84%! THANK YOU LORI!!!

I have twins in the 10th grade. They both work with Lori Culberson for chemistry every week, via Skype and FaceTime. (So easy!) Lori is always there for them! They love her good nature and demeanor. I highly recommend her if you’re looking for science and math tutoring!

Lori is a fantastic tutor. For AP Chemistry she expertly explained stoichometry so it made effortless sense to my daughter. After, she took the time to teach her how to begin chemistry problems now and in the future. My daughter returned home confident and excited! Money well spent!
