Hello, my name is Deborah C. and I am a Princeton graduate and certified teacher who would love be your tutor.

I can contribute more than six years of experience tutoring in one-on-one or small group settings, an excellent academic background, and passion for education. I am an expert at high stakes math and science tests, having earned perfect scores on SAT Subject Tests and AP Exams and am deeply knowledgeable, having taken rigorous courses in biology, neuroscience, psychology, calculus and statistics. I am also an accomplished writer who is published on national forums and a winner of writing competitions.

Furthermore, as a former teacher, I know how to inspire.

I combine both deep expertise in math, science, reading, and writing with the knowledge of how to make these subjects easy to understand for students. My students have all scored 700+ on their SAT Math and Science subject area tests and my middle school students are now working one to two grades above grade level.

My ultimate goal is to help your son or daughter move from being confused to feeling confident, successful, and independent.

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.

Algebra 1

I studied advanced calculus and statistics at Princeton University and scored a 800. I also scored a perfect 800 on my SAT Subject Test and a 5 on my AP Calculus BC test. Furthermore, as a certified classroom teacher and experienced math tutor, I am able to break down complex concepts so that they are easy to understand.

Algebra 2

I studied advanced calculus and statistics at Princeton University and scored a 800 on my SAT Subject Test and a 5 on my AP Calculus BC test.

Biology

I am an experienced science teacher who loves the subject of Biology and can break down complex topics into easy to understand concepts. I not only scored 800 on my Biology SAT Subject Test and a 5 on the AP Biology Exam, I also continued my study of biology in college by taking microbiology and neuroscience.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am a certified classroom teacher for K-6 with 2+ years of experience in the classroom. I have taught both 5th grade science as well as 2nd grade all subjects. I believe in character education and project based learning.

Elementary Math

I am a certified elementary school teacher with experience teaching and tutoring 1st-6th grade math. I use the CPVA method of math instruction, moving your child from the concrete, to the pictorial, to the verbal, and finally to the abstract mode of understanding math concepts.

I will make sure that your child not only answers math problems correctly, but that he or she has a deep understanding of the concepts and loves the subject.

Physical Science

I taught middle school science for two years. My students learned astronomy, geology, chemistry, and physics in class through hands-on experiments and engaging lectures. My personal academic background includes courses in chemistry, physics, and neuroscience.
