I am a graduate of the University of Connecticut with a bachelor's in chemistry. I have substituted in all grades, and I was also a long term substitute for grades 6 - 8 in science and math.
I've completed all related chemistry courses, including general chemistry and organic chemistry. I've also done well in the related laboratory courses.
I'm proficient in writing lab reports and give the basic structure on what needs to be covered in a typical lab report. I've also taken AP chemsitry in highschool.
I am fluent in Italian, in both written and oral. I've done two years of Italian in college, and I'm also a first generation Italian American, speaking Italian at home and with family.
I've taken many math courses throughout my college years and also in high school, including calculus I/II, multivariable calculus, elementary differential equations, and linear algebra. I've taken AP calculus in highschool, and received a 3 on the AP Exam.
For some students, science and math can be daunting due to the amount of math concepts needed for that subject. I can take those concepts and break them down into simple and easy to follow ways for the student to grasp, without struggling. I will work with the student to hone in on their skills and what needs to be worked on to bring the two together to help build on their foundation for the class.
My tutoring methods vary from student to student depending on the subject and their needs. I'm flexible in adjusting and going at the student's pace. I'm capable of coming up with lesson plans, sample questions and examples that are easy to follow, understand, and applicable to the subject at hand.
I am kind, patient and willing to work hard with the student to help them get through their class and understanding of the material. I'm prepared, organized, neat, and have a great attitude for teaching those of any age.
I'm flexible in hours and days of the week, and I look forward in getting to know you, and helping your education in any way I can.
Whether it be rudimentary or advanced college algebra, my algebra tutoring teaches the basics for any advanced math course needed in the future. If the concept doesn't make sense, I can break them down into simpler blocks that are understandable.
A step up from Algebra I, this is a continuation of Algebra I, delving into quadratic equations, linearity, roots, and radicals. These concepts are a little tougher, but I can take them to a basic level and make them easier to understand.
From high school to college, Biology covers a wide range of subjects, including cell division, photosynthesis, the animal kingdom, genetics, anatomy, and ecology.
Have taken high school biology I and II, and also college introduction to Biology I. I've taken and tutored also in biochemistry, relating to the topics mentioned above.
This is a subject that requires lots of worksheets and practice, along with some presentations and visuals. With some guidance, mastering biology will be easy.

I am proficient in tutoring in any aspect of each of the listed courses, including derivatives, integrals, word problems, trig substitution and integrals, partial fractions, matrices, eigenvalues.
I hold a BS in Chemistry from the University of Connecticut. Courses include General Chemistry, Organic Chemistry, Analytical, Instrumental, Inorganic, and Physical Chemistry. In addition to these courses, the subsequent lab courses were taken.
Worked previously in an after school daycare for kids between K-8. Part of the program required the students to work on their homework, and I've helped kids with their math, reading and writing skills during that time.
Can successfully teach addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, fractions, long division, basic geometry and any elementary math skills your child may need. Worked with kids from ages 5-10 in all areas.
English, whether it be from the language or you're stuck in interpreting a Shakespeare play, this subject covers a wide range of topics.

I've tutored a Kindergartener, who has having trouble with reading and phonics. To review the basic phonics, we went through each of the sounds of consonants and a little bit of vowels.
In addition, we did blended sounds such as fr-, bl-, etc, to encourage recognition of them in small reading passages, therefore increasing their confidence in recognizing words, and the sounds they made.
This led to the student's succession in learning to read and pronunciation
I've also have done this in a Kindergarten classroom as a substitute.
I have successfully passed the PRAXIS I exam in writing, reading and math portions.
The reading portion focuses on reading comprehension and analysis of certain passages asking for the purpose of the author's intention in the passage, and also inference of what is said in the passage. The math portion deals with simple algebra and number operations, percents, graphs and word problems. The writing portion deals with grammatical issues, punctuation, correct grammar rules, and one essay.
This is an exam that is built like the SAT's except much broader.
Writing = 181
Math = 182
Reading = 175
