I am an experienced high school teacher that has spent her entire educational career in one place. And I love it.

Teaching is a second career for me. I came to teaching in 1999, specifically to teach chemistry and physics because I had a wonderful high school teacher who not only taught me chemistry, but also encouraged me to think for myself. He encouraged a girl in the early 1980s to study science, which was still a relatively rare occurrence. I just want to give back a little of what he gave me. Some students struggle in either chemistry or physics and my goal is to help them through this struggle and to come through the other side if not with my love of the subject but at least with an appreciation of it and a solid understanding.

My formal teaching experience includes teaching high school chemistry at all levels, including AP. I have been the AP chemistry teacher in my school now for 5 full school years and continue this year. Prior to that, I also taught several years of college prep physics, one year of honors physics, and several years of general physical science.

Each one of my 15 full school years included at least 1 section of college preparatory chemistry.

I have done home instruction in both chemistry and physics.

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.

Chemistry

I have been teaching chemistry from a basic level to AP for 14 years. My AP students (at school) achieve 3's or higher. I have also tutored several college students who were struggling in first year chemistry.

Elementary Science

My background in teaching science in at the high school level and my patience with young children should make me a good elementary science tutor.

Physical Science

Physical science is actually primarily a combination of chemistry and physics. In the first few years of my teaching career, I taught a course called introduction to physical science, and have been teaching chemistry and/ or physics ever since.

Physics

I have been teaching chemistry and/or physics for more than 14 years. In my time with WyzAnt I have tutored many students in physics with great success on their part. Some even improved from near failing to an A.

A great physics tutor! — I would highly recommend Dorothy G. as a physics tutor! My daughter is a junior in high school and was having trouble understanding physics as this was a new class for her. Dolly made the course information easy to understand. She is patient and professional, a true teacher! My daughter received an A for her first semester physics grade! ...
