It is with great pleasure that I assist with the learning needs of students in the physical sciences. I come highly certified in the field of chemistry with experience teaching subjects such as conceptual physics, physics, physical science, integrated science and earth science for 18 years in k-12 education. My teaching experience expands throughout the Dade, Broward, Palm Beach and St. Lucie counties in Florida and presently in Bibb County in Macon, Georgia. I've also had the opportunity to work as an adjunct professor in adult education with the Indian River State College in Port St. Lucie, Florida, a chemistry lab assistant with the Miami Dade Community College (MDCC) and an intern for the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in Bethesda, Maryland. My experience as a lead tutor with Hungtington Learning center will greatly benefit students given my expertise.
The lives of many students have been greatly affected due to my passion for teaching and challenging them to be successful. I have used many innovative teaching strategies to engage students in the learning process as well as to increase student achievement. As a result, I was nominated for the Minority Teacher of the Year (MTOY)award. Technology tools such as Sophia, glogster.edu, Timetoast.com, Schooltube.com, Youtube.com, audio and video podcasts have helped to give students the confidence needed to excel in the advanced sciences. Students participate in virtual labs, video lectures and also, review games and activities. To further assist students, I have experience using email, Skype, Google Docs, SkyDrive, WebEx, GoTo Meeting and screen sharing.
I am able to assist with tutoring via the computer or "face to face". My tutoring methods involve analyzing past assessments in an effort to identify deficiencies in student learning. I provide students with manipulatives and hands-on activities to give them practice with specific concepts. I employ the use of powerpoints as a visual to reinforce "hard to learn" concepts. Rubrics are also used to help self-assess students as they track their learning progress. To ensure student and overall organizational success, my services include a monthly communication via email, telephone, Skype or face to face.
