I believe there is no such thing as a difficult or boring subject. I can make it interesting and easy to understand. I can help you realize the why so you can accomplish the how with leadership, confidence and pride. My tutoring and teaching experience spread from middle school to college level. I have tutored children in one-on-one sessions and in small groups. Recently I worked in the after-school STEM program as a New York State Academy Fellow. In the STEM program, I taught science, technology, engineering and math via robotics that led my students to improve in science, math and confidence by showcasing their own creativity. I taught Introductory Genetics (think fruit flies and peas) and Developmental Biology discussion sections at the university level. Each class included group work as well as individual office hours to help students with individual issues and problems. Now thought WyzAnt, I have been tutoring high and middle school math, chemistry and all science subjects for almost three years. In addition, I have help students prepare for SAT in science and math and high school entrance exams.

I have received my bachelor's in Biological Sciences and master's degrees in Developmental Biology from the University of Illinois at Chicago. My work took me to the University of Chicago where I worked in Immunology lab and the Rockefeller University where I work in Sensory Neuroscience lab. I am an avid history buff and a photographer.

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.

Genetics

I have taken Genetics courses during my undergraduate and graduate studies. I have taught Genetics labs/discussion as a Teacher assistant for three semester to undergraduate student. I have tutored genetics to students in private practice for three years.

Social Studies

Social Studies is a unique subject in that in combines multiple disciplines together: Civics, Political science, History, Economics and Geography. I can help you to realize the relationships between the different disciplines and their importance. I excel in many social sciences such as Art history, Human anthropology, Sociology, Psychology, Russian and European history through the coursework in university and graduate school. I can help you to research and apply various facts from each discipline to obtain a complete picture of the subject, improve your score and participate in class discussions.

Math is not hard. I have tutored math and I like math. Even though, I am not a math wiz. What I have learned is that math is not that difficult. Most people will not believe me. As a matter of fact, many students and parents will argue that I am wrong and don’t know what I am talking about. I insist. Math is not complicated. But why so many students keep insisting on the dogma if one doesn’t... read more
