Hello, I am an experienced and passionate Science tutor and teacher. I love working with students and seeing them succeed in their quest for learning. Here is a little about me. Education I have a B.S. in Chemistry, with a concentration in Biochemistry and a minor in Education. I am working towards an M.A. in Science Education, Biological Sciences 5-12. I have a solid knowledge of chemistry, physics, biology and earth science as well as mathematics. Experience Currently, I work as a ... [more]


I have a degree in Chemistry with concentration in Biochemistry, so I have taken many college level biology courses such as general biology, molecular biology and developmental biology. I am currently working on a master's in Biology Education. I have taught a Living Environment Regents class for 5 years and had a 100% passing rate. I have also tutored Biology for over 15 years, ever since I was a college student.


I have a B.S. in Chemistry. I started to tutor Chemistry when I was still in college for the college Chemistry department and have continued to tutor privately ever since. I normally tutor Regents Chemistry, Introductory College Chemistry and Organic Chemistry. My tutoring experience adds up to well over 15 years. During tutoring sessions I like to explain the concept often using, models, drawings, videos or animations. Once I feel like my student has the concept down we move on to practice problems to test that understanding. I also help students tackle challenging homework assignments by identifying where there is a lack of understanding and facilitating learning in that area.


Physical Science

Physical Science is a marriage between physics and chemistry. It is defined as the study of physics and chemistry of nature. I have a B.S. in Chemistry and as a science major have studied college level physics. I also have 8 years of experience teaching middle school physical science.

ACT Science

Organic Chemistry

I have a B.S. in Chemistry and extensive experience successfully tutoring organic chemistry I and II to college students. I began tutoring organic chemistry 12 years ago as a college student, for the Chemistry department at CCNY and still continue today. I help my students to visualize organic molecules, concepts and reactions better by utilizing molecular kits and graphic representations.


I tutor Regents chemistry, living environment and earth science. Chemistry I have a B.S. in chemistry, with concentration in biochemistry, as well as 15 years of experience in tutoring and teaching chemistry to both college and high school students. Living Environment I have a background in biology and I am currently working on a master's in biology education. I have also taught the living environment Regents course in a middle school. I have been teaching this course for 7 years, with 100% passing rate. Last year 65% of my students got above a 90 on the Regents.
