Welcome to my new students! I would like to tell you about myself as it relates to you. My education credentials include an MS in Secondary Science Education from Hofstra University, an MA in Exercise Physiology from Adelphi University, and a BS in Biology from SUNY Stonybrook. I have experience tutoring and teaching students in middle school and high school for West Hempstead School District (2007-2010), for Creative Tutoring Inc. (2008-2010), and am currently working with students from my local school districts.

The teaching approach I use with my students is as individuals and I assess their needs accordingly. In that way, I am able to find out their strengths and weaknesses, and address them one-on-one. I am extremely effective in the areas of biology, anatomy, physiology, earth science, ecology, environmental science, marine biology and forensics. My strengths also include algebra and trigonometry. When I am with a student who is having difficulty grasping a scientific concept, I experience such joy when they have the "aha! moment" of understanding. I also pride myself in engaging them in a deeper understanding of their school curriculum. They will grasp why it is relevant and practical to their world. In other words, they finally know the answer to "Why do I need to know this?"!

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.

Anatomy

Anatomy is the study of the structure of living organisms, especially of their internal parts. This includes all of the organ systems, as well as the musculo-skeletal system.

I currently teach Anatomy and Physiology to students working towards their Yoga Teacher Training Certification.

Biology

Biology is the study of living organisms. This includes their structure, functioning, origin and evolution, classification, interrelationships, and distribution.

Elementary Science

Elementary Science introduces young students to all of the basic information they will be learning in detail in the near future.
The subjects covered include the biology of plants and animals, and the ecology.

Nutrition

Nutrition is the science and study of food and nourishment, especially in humans. It is the process by which a living organism obtains energy, in the form of food, assimilates the food, and uses it for growth and the replacement of tissues.

I took a course in Nutrition when I was in school for my Masters in Exercise Physiology. This degree was based on understanding the physiological effects of exercise on the body. It was also essential to grasp the importance that nutrition plays in nourishing the body and how food is used by the body in order to move, live and excel in life, sports and exercise. The curriculum was taught on anatomical and physiological levels.

Physiology

Physiology is the branch of biology concerned with the vital functions of plants and animals, such as nutrition, respiration, reproduction, and excretion. It is concerned with how organisms or parts of organisms work and the processes by which their bodies function.
