I earned my Bachelor's degree in Biotechnology from York College of the City University of New York. In doing so I graduated Summa Cum Laude in 2004. I have worked as a New York City High School Science teacher for three and a half years,from 2006 to 2010, specializing in Living Environment and Earth Science. In addition to those two subjects I had also instructed my own Biotechnology elective, as well as Health Education.

Prior to my stint at the New York City Board of Education I served as a tutor for the SEEK program at the New York City College of technology. There I tutored students in math classes ranging from elementary algebra to Calculus. I have also tutored students privately at my former university. These one on one and small group tutoring experiences have taught me how to be patient, and anticipate the needs of students.

Due to my vast teaching and tutoring experiences there is very little that I haven't seen or heard from students. I enjoying working with students of all ages and I specialize in breaking down complex material into easy to smaller "chunks" that are easier to understand. Chemistry, organic chemistry, and biological sciences are among my favorite subjects to tutor. However, I am very comfortable with math up to and including pre-calculus. As a tutor I believe that anyone can learn any subject, so long as the material is broken down into smaller units for optimal and maximum comprehension.

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.

Organic Chemistry

I used to tutor organic chemistry when I was in college a few years ago. I coached my last organic chemistry tutee to an A in her course and an above average science score on the DATs. My strengths include reaction mechanisms, synthesis, and spectroscopy. I'm currently reviewing organic chemistry for the MCATS. Organic chemistry is my favorite MCAT subject and one that I enjoy tutoring.
