My name is Toni S. and I am a former teacher with over 25 years experience. I am available to tutor a variety of subjects - Biology
including AP Biology
, general science
, all grade levels of English
, particularly reading
and elementary and middle school math
I graduated from Barnard College, Columbia University in New York City where I earned my BA with a major in Zoology
and a minor in English. I also earned a Masters in science teaching from Hunter College, City University of New York and was licensed to teach Biology, Chemistry
and general science. I worked at several private schools and for the longest period, over 20 years, at Riverdale Country School, a prep school in the Bronx where I taught high school Biology and Chemistry including honors courses and some middle school general science. I helped to plan curriculum there and served for a period as acting Science Department head.
I began tutoring when I moved to California three years ago and have worked one on one with a variety of students in a range of subjects including Biology and AP Biology, middle school math and both middle and high school English language
arts. I also worked in the LAUSD, No Child Left Behind, "Learning with Laptops" program teaching students from 5th to 9th grade math and English and in the Los Angeles Public Library adult literacy program.
In addition to my particular interest, Biology, I am an avid reader and have particularly enjoyed helping students with their reading comprehension. When I work with students in any subject my goal is for them to enjoy what they are doing as well as to understand the material. The aim is not just to teach memorization or prepping for tests. I try to work with each student in a style that suits his or her individual needs.
I would love to help you and look forward to hearing from you.
