About Concettina

I absolutely love teaching Chemistry and I will happily tutor students in Chemistry, Honors Chemistry and AP Chemistry. I have been a full time Chemistry teacher for 32 years. I have also taught conceptual Physics each of those 32 years. Additionally, I have taught AP Chem for the past 7 years. I am enthusiastic in my field and I can make the problems readily understandable and bring everyday examples for chemistry to help you learn it in an effective manner.

Primarily, I will provide you with specific methods to help you to determine what the questions are asking and how to systematically solve those problems. I will teach you how to use dimensional analysis to systemically derive the answers to difficult chemistry word problems. Overall, I will provide encouragement and a positive learning environment to maximize student learning of the concepts.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Chemistry

I have a Masters in Chemistry- Education. I have been a Chemistry teacher for 33 years, an AP Chemistry teacher for past 9 years, and Physics teacher for past 33 years.

Microsoft Outlook

Students who I tutor can learn how to use the Microsoft Outlook program from me so that they can easily communicate with others. I am proficient in using Microsoft Outlook and can easily show students the benefits to this program. Students will learn how to attach documents to the email, how to use the voting buttons, and how to use the daily calendar to help them keep track of various events. Students will also learn how to use the reminder features for events that are upcoming as well as other features that come with the program. I am able to show students how to work with this program since I am use it on a daily basis.

Spelling

Students whom I tutor will benefit from my knowledge of proper usage of spelling when writing essays and term papers. Students can give me their papers to proofread, and I will be able to easily provide them with a review of their papers in order to help them edit their work.

I am constantly reviewing students' paperwork, including but not limited to laboratory reports, research papers, and other FRQ responses to AP Chem tests. Students know that I will always look for proper spelling and grammer in their submitted papers. I have 26 years of teaching experience and countless years of reviewing and reading of research papers from students in my classes. I am extremely familiar with spelling rules and proper use of grammer rules when writing and editing papers. I can teach students in an efficient and timely manner how to use the proper rules for spelling to help them with their written work.

Study Skills

I am constantly implementing a variety of study skills in my daily classroom lessons. I teach students how to read through questions on a test to obtain the meaning before they choose an answer. I show students the value of making and learning flash cards to help them learn polyatomic ions. Additionally, I encourage small group and teamwork in the classroom to help students learn from one another.
