I am a NYS certified teacher in Biology, Chemistry and Earth Science. I teach online courses for a state college. I have over 20 years of teaching experience and have tutored many students who successfully passed the NYS Regents exam. Before becoming a teacher, I was a research assistant in Columbia University's Oceanography Department. My job was to extract microfossils from deep-sea sediment cores. These fossils were then analyzed so that the scientist I worked could reconstruct the last ice age. I then worked for l companies in Colorado here I flew once a month to Michigan, where the company was drilling and worked on drilling rigs. My experience in research and in the field make science "come alive" for my students.

Very likable and worked well with my daughter. — Joanne came out to our home on a really snowy night and she stayed the whole hour to find out where my daughter stood in Chemistry. My daughter expressed that she did a very good job explaining the material in a way that made sense to her. She is looking forward to getting more assistance from her and I hope we see an improvement in her test scores- keep ya posted!!!! ...
