I have a bachelor's degree from Adelphi University, and I'm certified to teach English as a foreign language TEFL and English as a business language. I have 9 math credits and am proficient at pre-algebra, algebra, fundamental geometry and basic trigonometry. I have 28 chemistry credits from my college and I've passed the FTCE chemistry exam for the state of Florida to be certified to teach it as well as passed the Texas exam to teach it.

My goal is to one day teach chemistry. I work in the field of education and my belief is that ANYONE who wants help deserves help, and with patience, effort, and dedication, he or she can achieve his or her goals. I try my best to make chemistry seem very easy and understandable in layman's terms. In order to succeed in chemistry, if you know the tricks, the math and can memorize, you will get an A. It's one of the EASIEST subjects around, and I will make sure you understand it so well that you'll NEVER have difficulty with it again. I have 4 biology credits, as well as 3 microbiology credits and 8 credits in anatomy and physiology. I can tutor you in general biology as well. Human life is interesting. It's something I can help you grasp.

You can ask me anything, for there is NO SUCH THING as a stupid question. I try to accommodate my students' needs through understanding, patience and effort. I have many chemistry workbooks and papers at home, which I keep reviewing myself everyday, so I'm on par with this subject and will help you in any way I can. My motto: Reach for the stars, and they WILL be yours. I also have experience with algebra and geometry, and can help with ESL as well. I will do my best to work with you and help you succeed. I love math and thus, SAT, ACT, GED and GRE math tutoring is also something I can help you with. Math is fun and I love it and want to make it fun and exciting for you too. So please, if you need help, ask! You show me an interest, I'll show you the way. Thank you.
