Utica College (Chemistry)
SUNY Empire State College (Master's)
I earned a B.S. in Chemistry with a minor in Government from Utica College in 2009. I am in the process of obtaining a Master of Arts in Teaching from SUNY Empire State College.
During the day I work as a Certified Teacher's Assistant for the Utica City School District. I am an AIS reading/math assistant. In the past, I worked with students struggling in middle school mathematics. I also have experience working with students with disabilities. I worked at a middle school assisting students with individualized education plans (IEPs). I spent time tutoring as an undergraduate at MVCC. I also volunteered my time to assist students at the college level prior to becoming a peer tutor. I am trying to branch out and start tutoring using Skype or other online services that will allow me to tutor people over a distance. I hope you consider choosing me as your child's tutor or as your own personal tutor. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
A little more about me...
I know how hard chemistry is for people because I myself struggled with it both in high school and college. I found an effective way to learn the material and I plan to pass it on to my future students and to the people that I tutor. I began my college studies at Mohawk Valley Community College as a Biology major. My first semester I dropped chemistry because I found it to be very difficult. My second semester I changed my major to Public Policy but continued to study Biology because I excelled in it. After being awarded a scholarship in biology and not being a biology major I decided that I was going to give Chemistry another chance the following year. I did, and I ended up doing extremely well in Chemistry and liked it even more than Biology. I worked a lot harder the second time around in chemistry than I did the first time. After 2.5 years at MVCC I transferred to Utica College and declared a major in Chemistry and graduated in 2009. I earned a B.S. in Chemistry with a minor in Government from Utica College in 2009. I am in the process of obtaining a Master of Arts in Teaching from SUNY Empire State College.

I am willing to work with people on the rate that I accept per lesson.
Dana T. is an excellent teacher/tutor. These words were expressed by my daughter, who is studying chemistry at MVCC. Dana has been easy to set up appointments with, and has been available for tutoring when my daughter has needed her. We are very pleased and are grateful for her help. Dana makes sure the content is understandable. No rushing.
My son has worked with Dana T. as a WyzAnt tutor this past summer. It is my observation that as a educator and Technology Director, she is excellent. She is a hard worker, performing her Algebra tutoring on time and done well. She is persistent in her approach to problem solving; she works well with my son, and is improving his understanding of Algebra. Her organization and attention to detail is instrumental in the success that my son is seeing with Math. My son likes Dana as an instructor; he seeks her advice and counsel on math issues. This she gives without reservation, and without condescension. She is bright, inquisitive, and I would recommend her as Math Instructor and tutor.
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.
I am a professional tutor at SUNY Poly. I tutor Calc 1,2, differential equations and all math leading up to those courses. I also tutor non calc based physics, all chemistry courses, biology, and genetics. I am working on becoming a NYS certified chemistry and math teacher.
I am qualified to teach differential equations because I took it in college. I feel I understand the subject enough to explain it to someone else. In the past I have helped students in differential equations understand how to complete problems in a simplified way. I have students work problems until they feel comfortable working them alone. I try to show my students how to use their books/notes to find out how to problems on their own.
