I am available to tutor Biology, Physiology, General Science and English, particularly grammar and reading comprehension. I graduated Barnard College where I majored in Zoology and minored in English. I also earned a Masters degree in Science Teaching at Hunter College, City University of New York and was licensed by New York State to teach General Science, Biology and Chemistry.
I have over 25 years of teaching experience in New York City schools including Friends Seminary and Riverdale Country School. At Riverdale, for example, I taught Biology including AP Biology, Chemistry, and some Middle School general science. I helped plan curriculum and served for a period as head of the Science Department.
Since relocating to Woodland Hills in late 2011 I have tutored in the Adult Literacy program run by the LA Public Library in the "No Child Left Behind, Learning with Laptops" program run by LA Unified School District, and have done some private tutoring.
My goal in working with any student is to understand what his or her individual difficulties are and where their interests lie and then to tailor lessons to their particular needs.
