My name is Vilma. I graduated from The College of New Jersey and majored in biology
and minored in finance
. I tutored for The College of New Jersey for 3 years and been privately tutoring for Wyzant since 2011.
I have tutored introductory classes in biology, chemistry
, organic chemistry
prep. As a college tutor, usually my students have questions prepared to ask me, and I use the textbook to help the student figure out on their own what the answer could be. If the student has trouble, I do tell them how I approach the problem, and then I give them a similar problem to see if they have comprehended the method and can also use it themselves.
Age of students I have tutored ranges from elementary school to college level.
I have a great understanding of the basics needed to be successful in the sciences and mathematics
. Having also taken the SATs and MCATs, I can be a great help to students preparing for standardized tests. In fact, I have been a certified instructor for the SATs since February 2012.
I love tutoring and always find myself making good friends with my students and their families. It is very rewarding when I have students tell me that I have had such a positive influence on reducing their stress levels which allows them to prepare more effectively for their exams.
Currently, I am a first year medical student at Frank H Netter MD School of Medicine at Quinnipiac Univerisity in Connecticut. Although my time is limited, I am looking to take two to three students near the area.

I have noticed that many students who need tutoring are outof my reach due to commuting obstacles and distance. One of my friends recommended I offer tutoring online. At first I was skeptical about it, but then I gave it a try. One of my students lives 30
minutes away from me, and we both decided to try the online tutoring through Skype. To my pleasant surprise, it worked out great for us....
I am new to WyzAnt, so I just thought I'd share with everyone the experience I have had so far with tutoring students through this site. My first student, which needed tutoring in organic chemistry, was very willing to improve her grade and with her hard
work, she came prepared to ask me which problems she had trouble with. Luckily the powerpoint slides that I saved from my organic chemistry...
