I began tutoring when I was in high school. I was a member of the math honor society, Mu Alpha Theta, and found that helping other students with math was a very rewarding experience. Later, when I was in college at Columbia University, I began to share my knowledge of physics. I have since taught physics and astronomy at Ocean County College and tutored in basic math, algebra, geometry, trigonometry, calculus, chemistry, physics, astronomy, and SAT prep. In addition, I am currently working on my master's degree in education psychology at Rutgers University.

While I enjoy the classroom, I find that working with students one-on-one is the most effective way to help them learn. One of the greatest feelings is when I am able to help a student to experience one of those "light bulb" moments, when they finally, really get it. And then to watch them take it and run... It is one of my favorite things.

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.
