Hello. I am a NYS certified Physics teacher and I am available for tutoring any high school honors or regents level Physics or Earth Science student who needs help. With over 10 years of classroom and tutoring experience, my students earn a yearly passing rate of close to 100% on the NYS Regents Exam in Physics. I understand which misconceptions that students will have of science concepts in each topic, so I can usually nip whatever it is that is confusing them in the bud, so that we can build from there. Physical Sciences are tough subjects for some students, so it is important to get help as early as possible if you need it, since concepts tend to build upon each other.

Although most of my experience is in Physics, I do also teach other subjects in math and science and if you need some help with Word or Excel, let me know. I have many years of teaching and writing lab reports under my belt as well!

My schedule is flexible usually. It is most convenient for me to meet at the Sachem Public Library and that is usually where I meet most students but I am willing to travel a little too if that is easier for you.
Please feel free to drop me a line if I can help you or your child this year.

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.

Regents

I have taught high school Regents and Honors level physics on Long Island for 10 years with nearly 100% passing rate each year. It is definitely my specialty. I have a clear and thorough understanding of the NYS Physics regents curriculum and lab requirements and have tutored and home schooled the subject as well every year of those 10 years in the classroom and beyond. I have found that after having me as a teacher and tutor, my students feel that what once was a daunting subject, turns into a fun and easy to understand subject. Over the course of my teaching career, I have helped over 500 students overcome their fear of physics and achieve respectable scores on the physics regents exam.
In addition, I also hold a NYS certification in Earth Science, have taught Earth Science for one year and am familiar with the Earth Science curriculum and Regents exam.

Kimberly saved my daughter's life — OK, maybe that's a tiny bit dramatic... but the truth is, this woman is an amazing physics tutor and a completely wonderful human being. Her brief was essentially to teach a year of physics in seven weeks. My daughter was failing the subject badly and needed to pass the Regents to graduate. It seemed like a completely lost cause but I figured tutoring was her last chance. At this point - four week ...
