I have worked for more than 25 years as a Chemist where I have gathered a wealth of experience in the field of synthetic Chemistry. As a Chemist, I had the opportunity to develop an astute command of laboratory techniques and theory. I am a very creative, highly effective problem solver with a long breath of experience supported by an exemplary record of achievements.
Inspired by the love of teaching, I enrolled in the ARC1 (accelerated route for certification) program where I obtained my teaching certificate. After graduation, I worked as an honors and academics chemistry teacher at a local High School.
As a teacher, I have used my dedication, my enthusiasm toward Science to inspire, empower students and, best of all, reverse their aversive attitudes toward the study of Chemistry and Physics. My patience and my eagerness to coach and engage my students, being multilingual (French, Spanish) have allowed me to acquire the skills necessary to interact positively with students, animate their imagination and engage their higher thinking ability.
As a result of my interactions with my students, I have earned their praise and appreciation. I was the only new teacher to be honored by students peer counselors for my hard work and devotion to Brookfield High School. My achievement in increasing the number of student proficiency in math from 33% to 82 % is worth mentioning.
My experience in mentoring troubled youth and being multi-lingual have prepared me to be sensitive to the diverse ability levels and communication styles of varied learners. Above all, I believe it is important, to make not only a lasting difference, but also to be the difference in maximizing students learning.
As a tutor, I will use these assets and the most innovative and tested teaching strategies to guarantee success and command of the material. I have successfully helped many nursing and College students achieve proficiency in Science. Many High School students, with our help, have made the transition to college.
