I am a graduate of the University of Connecticut with a bachelor's in chemistry. I have substituted in all grades, and I was also a long term substitute for grades 6 - 8 in science and math.
I've completed all related chemistry courses, including general chemistry and organic chemistry. I've also done well in the related laboratory courses.
I'm proficient in writing lab reports and give the basic structure on what needs to be covered in a typical lab report. I've also taken AP chemsitry in highschool.
I am fluent in Italian, in both written and oral. I've done two years of Italian in college, and I'm also a first generation Italian American, speaking Italian at home and with family.
I've taken many math courses throughout my college years and also in high school, including calculus I/II, multivariable calculus, elementary differential equations, and linear algebra. I've taken AP calculus in highschool, and received a 3 on the AP Exam.
For some students, science and math can be daunting due to the amount of math concepts needed for that subject. I can take those concepts and break them down into simple and easy to follow ways for the student to grasp, without struggling. I will work with the student to hone in on their skills and what needs to be worked on to bring the two together to help build on their foundation for the class.
My tutoring methods vary from student to student depending on the subject and their needs. I'm flexible in adjusting and going at the student's pace. I'm capable of coming up with lesson plans, sample questions and examples that are easy to follow, understand, and applicable to the subject at hand.
I am kind, patient and willing to work hard with the student to help them get through their class and understanding of the material. I'm prepared, organized, neat, and have a great attitude for teaching those of any age.
I'm flexible in hours and days of the week, and I look forward in getting to know you, and helping your education in any way I can.
