I have been teaching and tutoring earth science for the past 9 years. Earth Science is a passion for me. I enjoy helping others learn and achieve success. My goal is to see students feel good and confident about themselves. If you are having difficulty learning Earth Science or just need to review for the Regents exam, I can help. I explain concepts very clearly and comprehensively. I will help you build knowledge, improve comprehension, and perform better analysis of the many concepts in Earth Science. I am fluent in Spanish and can tutor Spanish-speaking students as well. I am New York State certified in Earth Science and truly enjoy teaching and helping others accomplish their goals.

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.

Astronomy

As part of the Earth Science Regents curriculum, I teach Astronomy as it relates to Earth's position in our solar system and apparent motion of Celestial objects in the Universe. I have taught this subject in the New York Public Schools for the past 8 years.

Chess

I have been a student of chess since I was 8 years old. Watching a young Bobby Fischer play Boris Spassky for the world chess championship in 1972, inspired me at an early age to take up the game. I have never stopped playing and I love the game. It's not just about Kings, Queens, and Rooks, but rather, quadrants and coordinates, thinking strategically and foreseeing consequences. It teaches to think abstractly and spatially and sharpens your observation skills. Chess might just be the perfect teaching and learning tool.

Geography

As a trained geologist and earth scientist, geography is a profoundly critical skill that is necessary to the profession. Knowledge of geography is entrenched in the training of geology. As a geologist, I have traveled and worked in many places throughout the globe. Geology involves the study of landmasses, topography,climate and the world's oceans, all aspects of geography. Travel has taught me the understanding and respect of the diverse cultures throughout the world.

Geology

For the past 9 years, I have taught Earth Science Regents in the New York Public Schools to a diverse population of multicultural students. I have a Master of Arts in Geological and Environmental Sciences and a Bachelor of Science degree in Geology. I am New York State Professional Teacher Certified in Earth Science and general sciences. I am fluent in Spanish and teach bilingual students as well. Additionally, I have conducted consulting services in geological and environmental investigations for the State of New York and New York City.

Physical Science

I teach the physical setting in earth science regents for the New York Public Schools. I am Professional Teacher certified by New York State. I have a Master of Arts in geological and environmental sciences. Additionally, I am a geologist that has conducted consulting services in the petroleum and environmental field.

Regents

I have taught Earth Science Regents in the New York Public Schools to a diverse population of multicultural students. My Master's is in Geological and Environmental Sciences. I have my New York State Professional Teaching certificate in Earth Science.
