"I began teaching as a laboratory assistant while getting my bachelor's degree in chemistry at Oberlin College, and continued as a PhD candidate at Cornell University. I was awarded Oberlin College's Fitzpatrick Scholarship for excellence as a chemistry teaching assistant and tutor, and a National Merit Scholarship in high school for excellent standardized test scores. I bring to my tutoring an understanding that my own successes and those of most students are due to hard work, confidence, persistence, and excellent help from teachers and mentors.

Though I'm new to Wyzant, I've been tutoring math, science, and test prep for over ten years. I love making math and science accessible to students, especially those who are struggling and don't believe they're capable of improvement. Because both subjects are cumulative, I focus on finding quickly any earlier concepts students missed and then working up to the material they're struggling with. I've found this strategy gives my students substantial and permanent growth in their grades, scores, and self-confidence. I'm also very comfortable helping students prepare to take the ACT, new SAT, and ISEE exams; I've had students improve their SAT scores by as much as 200 points.

I'm happy to work with students of all ages, in their homes or in public spaces. My students can expect progress reports, modest but regular homework assignments, and to achieve the progress they're hoping for!" less...
