Retired chemistry teacher and tutor : Regents, AP, College, Organic

Working together to improve your understanding and your scores. I bring enthusiasm, experience and commitment to my tutoring. I will assess your needs quickly and adjust my tutoring style to accommodate those needs. I develop worksheets and practice tests that specifically benefit those I tutor. I succeed in helping students improve grades because I teach problem solving and test taking techniques as well as subject matter. I love connecting with my students and it is a pleasure to see them... [more]


I have taught freshman chemistry, AP chemistry and Regents chemistry and tutored for 5+ years. I have developed extensive notes and problem packets for Regents and AP Chemistry. The note sets for AP chem are useful for reviewing General College Chemistry (both first and second semesters). A first tutoring session would start with an assessment of needs. I have experience teaching Organic Chemistry including instrumental analysis (IR, NMR, UV/Vis, Mass Spec, and Gas chromatography).

Physical Science

I am thoroughly familiar with the Physical Science middle school curriculum, including physics, chemistry and earth science topics. I have taught a science course for special ed teachers and am currently scheduled to teach a course called "Science for Elementary School Teachers" at MCC. This course uses a middle school textbook.

Organic Chemistry

I have a PhD in organic chemistry from Yale University. I have done organic chemical research and have patents and publications. I have taught Organic Chemistry as an adjunct professor at Monroe Community College and the University of Rochester. I recently taught the lab portion of organic chemistry at Monroe Community College.
