I am a NJ certified Teacher of Chemistry and Mathematics who has been working as a Home Instruction Tutor of Chemistry for 4 years. As of September 2014, I shall teach College Preparatory and Honors Chemistry at a Jr/Sr High School. Academic background entails a B.A. in Chemistry, an M.S. in Mathematics, and enrollment in the M.S. Chemistry Program at Rutgers University.

My initial teaching position was that of Teaching Assistant at Rutgers-New Brunswick. For the past 6 years, I have been a Substitute Teacher in the Camden County, NJ Area. From January 2012 until June 2012, I taught AP, Honors, and Introductory Chemistry at Woodbury Jr and Sr High School. Most recently, I have been teaching 6th Grade Math, 7th Grade Math, Algebra II, and Geometry in the Trenton and Camden City Public School Districts.

Chemistry and Physical Science Tutors can expect to see Visual demonstrations in addition to Formulaic explanations. For example, Explanations of Kinematic and Calorimetric Equations are nice, but calculating the trajectory of a Hot Wheels car or the temperature change of an ice pack in contact with a warm can of soda, results in a more concrete understanding of formulas.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Algebra 1

I taught the HSPA Math Lab in the Camden City Public School District. I also worked mainly (50%) as a math and science substitute teacher in the Cherry Hill Public School District for the past two years.

Algebra 2

From 2009-2012, 50% of my Substitute assignments, in the Cherry Hill Public School System of NJ, have been Algebra 2R classes.

Currently, I teach Algebra II at Camden High School in the Camden City Public Schools District of NJ.

Calculus

I enrolled in Physical Chemistry and Quantum Chemistry courses at Rutgers University, which entailed the use of the following concepts: Implicit Differentiation and Integration of functions in spherical coordinates.

Chemistry

For the past 3 years, I have tutored students in both Basic and College Preparatory Chemistry.

Basic Chemistry students will understand that concepts such as Molarity and Solubility are applicable to practical situations.

College Preparatory Chemistry students will learn how to use Mathematical formulas in order to better understand concepts such as Kinetics and the Nernst Equation.

Geometry

I teach Geometry at a High School in the Camden City School District of NJ.

Students who are having problems writing proofs will be trained to first brainstorm, and then organize reason for a given postulate.

Trigonometric Ratio Problems can be solved by thing of sine, cosine, and tangent ratios as sides of Similar Triangles.

Organic Chemistry

I received A's in Organic Chemistry I and II. Also, I have a B.A. in Chemistry.

Physical Science

Last year I tutored students in the area of Conceptual Physical Science.

Students will become comfortable with using Dimensional Analysis to perform Unit Conversion problems. Conceptual Physical Science can also be used to prepare students for Physics classes by teaching them how to use Mathematics for both conceptualizing and solving problems.

Prealgebra

In the Trenton Public School District of NJ, I taught 6th and 7th Grade Math.

Under the Common Core Curriculum Standards, High School Level Algebra and Geometry concepts were incorporated into the Mathematics Curriculum. Thus, my students were required to solve 1st degree linear equations, and also use the Square Root and Cube Root Method for Geometric Formulas involving 2nd and 3rd degree variables.

Precalculus

I can make students feel less intimidated by concepts such as "Limit" or "Summation". Students will learn that such concepts are more efficient ways of dealing with abstract concepts.

Trigonometry

As a Physical Science tutor, I used Trigonometry in order to demonstrate principles of Physics (Vector components and Dot products).

As a Substitute 7th and 8th Grade Math Teacher last year (D.U.E. Season Charter School), I am also aware that Trigonometry is part of the NJ 8th grade Mathematics curriculum. Knowledge of this Trigonometry will better prepare students for the "progressive science" high school sequence: Physics, Biology, Chemistry, Elective Science.
