Science and Math are subjects that many students find quite challenging; I know I did! Learning these subjects may not be easy for you, but with someone to guide you, as I will, you can be successful in mastering these subjects.

Science and Math are subjects that many students find quite challenging; I know I did! Learning these subjects may not be easy for you, but with someone to guide you, as I will, you can be successful in mastering these subjects. Working one-on-one in a relaxed, stress-free environment, I guide my students through the material being studied in a way that they can understand it, not just memorize it for a test. My goal is to help the student gain confidence in working problems and understanding concepts, so I like to use real-world examples and applications of the task at hand that will help the student truly understand how they may use the information being presented. If you see how the material you are learning is applied, then you are more motivated to learn about and master it. We will sit at my kitchen table or yours, and with healthy snacks close at hand, we will break open the books and spend an hour of productive learning! I look forward to the chance to make learning interesting again !

Algebra 1

I have over 30 hours in math courses at the college level, but do not have a degree in math. My BS degree is in Biology/Chemistry with a dual major. In addition, I have two MS degrees , one in Chemistry and one in Cell and Molecular Biology. I have taught math at the high school level, including algebra 1 and geometry. I also tutor math , both algebra I and geometry, to both high school and college students. I have helped many students improve their overall understanding as well as grades in these subjects and feel sure I can be of help to any student.

Biology

I have earned both a BS degree in Biology and a MS in Cell & Molecular Biology. In addition, I have completed advanced coursework in this field at the doctorate level. Over the years , I have taught and tutored Biology classes at the high school and college level and currently teach Biology courses at a local community college.
Chemistry

Chemistry

I hold two degrees in Chemistry, BS and MS. In addition, I have many years of teaching and tutoring experience, plus laboratory and research work experience. Chemistry requires both an understanding of basic chemical concepts along with learning problem-solving skills. I work hard to help students master both as we study this challenging subject.

Donna has helped me raise my grade in just two sessions! I had a 40 in my class and after our first session, my grade boomed to a 70. On my exam, she helped me raise my grade by 13 points! She is an amazing tutor and i’m so grateful to have her.

Excellent Chemistry Tutor!

Donna was a great high school Chemistry tutor. I have twin daughters who were taking Chemistry. The online curriculum for Covid required that the class material be covered very quickly. Donna was able to explain the material in a clear way, and she was able to provide alternative material to also provide additional examples of what was being taught. Each of my daughters have an unique learning style, and she was able to connect to each of them. My daughters confidence in Chemistry increased significantly throughout the year. I would give 5 stars.

Patient and Kind Tutor

My daughter has had several lessons in both Biology and Algebra I with Donna C. Donna has been patient and kind with my daughter. We noticed an improvement in our daughter’s grades after working with Donna and wouldn’t hesitate to contact her again if we needed a math and/or science tutor in the future.
