About Maureen

I have been tutoring on WyzAnt for several years now. I have over 100 hours of tutoring with this online company, WyzAnt.
I have tutored several students in chemistry specifically sophomore (10th grade) grade level and honors general chemistry. I have tutored students from Darien, New Canaan and Staples High schools. They have all been successful in their chemistry classes and have moved ahead as juniors into Advanced Placement (AP) courses.
Also, I have experience tutoring special needs students. I tutored a high school sophomore last school year who had special needs; we tutored very well together. All my students were successful in their chemistry classes during the last school year.
I continue to tutor students from southern Fairfield county. I have a passion for tutoring chemistry and for helping my students perhaps find their passion in science. If you know of a student who needs support in their chemistry class, please contact me.

I am extremely confident and comfortable with my skills in tutoring Algebra and Chemistry. I have experience providing one-on-one and small group tutoring for Algebra and General Chemistry. Throughout my professional tutoring experiences, I have developed the skills to recognize student’s strengths and weaknesses, and have been able to adjust the tutoring process according to each student’s needs. As a Master Tutor in the Academic Support Center at Housatonic Community College, I provided tutoring assistance to students with varying levels of knowledge in Algebra and Chemistry.

I believe math and science are significant to a student’s overall education. However, these subjects prove to also be a challenge for many students. I have the patience and the skill to actively listen and understand student’s comprehension and struggles. I am excited for the opportunity to assist students in succeeding in their challenging high school and college math and science courses.


More math qualifications include being an Algebra 1 tutor for a high school program. I also have four years as a supplemental instructor and teaching assistant for a college Algebra program. Additionally, I have nine years experience as a college Algebra tutor.

I have seven years experience tutoring chemistry at Housatonic Community College with a variety of students.
I appreciate the value of a high school and college education including the successful completion of a degree. I enjoy tutoring students so that they can accomplish an important milestone in their lives.

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.

Algebra 1

I am extremely comfortable and confident with my skills in tutoring Algebra 1. I have experience providing one-on-one and small group tutoring for Algebra 1 for 10 years. Throughout my professional tutoring experiences, I have developed the skills to recognize student’s strengths and weaknesses, and have been able to adjust the tutoring process according to each student’s needs. As a Master Tutor in the Academic Support Center at a community college, I provided tutoring assistance to students with varying levels of knowledge in Algebra 1. Most recently, I worked at a high school with many students facing important exams, and have been able to support and provide techniques to assist the students with overcoming testing anxiety. I have the patience and the skill to actively listen and understand student’s comprehension and struggles, and develop a plan to help the student succeed. Please see my profile here on Wyzant.
