"I have a B.S. and M.S. in Biology from Brown University and have been teaching science for 5 years. I am currently pursuing an Ed. D in STEM Education at the University of Pittsburgh. I have tutored science for over 10 years. I also scored 780 on SATII Biology, 800 on SATII Chemistry, and 5 on AP Chemistry. I help students succeed by sharing my excitement for the content. I also offer enrichment activities for those students who want to achieve above and beyond their peers.

Science is my passion, and I bring that enthusiasm to every tutoring session. My greatest joy is seeing a student, who has been working hard, finally learn something new, have the "Aha!" moment. I am a New Jersey certified teacher and teach middle school science. Before I started teaching, I tutored students in all middle school and high school science and math subjects, as well as both math and English SAT preparation.

I have always believed that every child should be given the opportunity to be successful academically, because academic success has been shown to lead to more choices and financial success in life. I will do what it takes to make sure your child has the most possible opportunities.

First, I will get to know your student - find out their academic strengths, weaknesses, interests, and leverage this information to determine the best strategy for your student to do better in school or on tests. I don't just teach the content. I collect data to diagnose the challenges and determine the most efficient and highest-leverage ways to improve, which can include practice, study skills, or reading and writing strategy.

Although my background is in science, I have always loved and excelled in math. I scored 750 on the math section of the SAT, 800 on the SATII, and 5 on AP Calculus BC. I specialize in high school algebra, geometry, and SAT prep, which I have tutored for over 6 years.

As a full-time teacher, my most available times are on weekends, although I am available almost any time on Saturdays and Sundays. My schedule is more flex" less...
