If you select this option, WyzAnt will ask interested tutors to contact you by email if they are able to help. A maximum of five different tutors will email you and none of your personal information, including your email address, will be released.

I have Middle School, High School and Community College teaching experience in Honors Chemistry, Life Science, Biology, Physics and Physical Science. My teaching philosophy is simple, “Science if fun, Math is easy, and I can do this!” I enjoy student engagement, science literacy topics, related current events, critical thinking.
The Laboratory component of any Science Course needs a special touch. First of all, it must be safe, non toxic to the student or environment, inquiry-based, and practical. Virtual and ‘Dry Labs’ have logistical advantages; however, they do not replace “Wet Lab” or field work. My experience is diversified working with Gifted Students, Academic and Standard level with In-Class Support.
My Graduate Degrees include an Ed. S. and M. Ed from the University of Florida and a B.S. from Georgian Court College, Lakewood, NJ. Award: NSF National Recipient in Genetics at Princeton University under the Direction of Malcolm S. Steinberg, Ph. D. College of Biotechnology.
