As an experienced professional educator I help high school, college students and adults learn (chemistry, physical science, and algebra), improve their analytical skills, and develop problem solving skills. With my help my students are more confident, earn better grades, and increase their learning pace. I have been teaching chemistry and physical science for more than six years in Connecticut for students of all abilities, and I am CollegeBoard certified in AP chemistry.

All of my students made significant progress in their learning and confidence, and their grades have improved. Although many tutors have passed a chemistry/science class, few know how to teach others. With years of experience as a professional educator I can teach, reinforce, correct misunderstandings and provide practice for mastery of chemistry/science concepts.

Prior to my teaching experience I worked for an international corporation, inventing and developing new materials with a team. My experience ranged from the laboratory invention through development to commercialization and patenting new products. Most students commonly hold something I invented.

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

I have tutored many students in algebra to strengthen their problem-solving skills before tutoring them in chemistry. In many subjects,students with weak math skills will not be as successful as those with solid algebra, geometry, trigonometry skills. It is a natural fit to help students improve their algebra skills and then apply those skills to chemistry concepts. I can explain principles, show examples, and provide and review practice problems.
Algebra 2,

Algebra 2

I am a certified teacher and I have tutored many students in math and sciences. I help students make connections between concepts, help them develop problem-solving skills, provide great reference sheets, so my students feel confident.
Chemistry,

Chemistry

I studied Chemistry and earned a Bachelor's degree and a PhD to do research., and I enjoyed doing so in industry. I invented new specialty plastics that are used for many devices today. In addition, teaching has always been part of my spirit, and I am delighted to help others understand chemistry and learn problem-solving skills. I earned the certification to teach sciences and have been an educator for more than ten years. I have successfully tutored many high school and college students taking courses and preparing for exams.
Prealgebra

Prealgebra

In teaching chemistry, I have needed to help students develop their math skills to apply prealgebra to the chemistry problems. Learning both at the same time is extremely difficult, so I prefer they have a very solid foundation in the math before teaching the science. I review or teach math skills to nearly all of my students, whether they are in a math class or a science class. For younger students, I use some objects (often legos) and models to provide a visual and something they can manipulate while learning the concepts.

Helpful in simplifying and explaining difficult concepts

I'm taking college level Gen Chem 2 and was in desperate need of help as I prepared for my first exam. Cherylyn was extremely helpful in breaking down a problem to help me understand it as well as clarifying confusion I had regarding concepts. Most of what we discussed involved kinetics.

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Cheryl is an excellent tutor. She helped my son understand the chemistry concepts that he was not confident in. He was failing chem and Cheryl's ease at conveying the concepts helped him bring his grade up to a B. I would highly recommend Cheryl. She is an amazing tutor. Patty P.

Knowledgeable and patient chemistry tutor

Cherylyn has is an outstanding Chemistry tutor! She is knowledgeable, enthusiastic, organized, dynamic, and extremely patient. My daughter was overwhelmed and frustrated with chemistry and didn’t think she could do well. From the very first session with Cherylyn my daughter instantly felt at ease and began to feel more confident with the math and how to apply it to the content being taught. Cherylyn approaches the subject matter with enthusiasm and makes sure my daughter can relate to it by providing real life example that she can relate to. We are thrilled to have found Cherylyn.

An Excellent Tutor!

My son felt confident after reviewing for his finals with Cherylyn. She was very through and made sure that he gets it. We also appreciate that she was flexible and went over our scheduled time but yet was not calculative. My son said she’s an excellent tutor! We will definitely book her again for my son’s future needs. Thank you!

Patient and knowledgable

Cherylyn has been a patient and knowledge teacher. When my daughter was having some trouble, Cherylyn has been able explain a lesson in many different ways in order to assure that my daughter understood the topic. This, in my opinion makes her a great teacher and we feel fortunate to have found her.

Rosa, 3 lessons with Cherylyn

Very Resourceful and Knowledgeable!

She helped me understand core concepts relating to the electronic structure of atoms, the periodic table, and covalent bonds. She has many handouts that simplify the material and make it more approachable. Cherylyn is a very knowledgable tutor. She is very good at breaking the big picture into smaller, simpler concepts. I am thankful that she is my tutor! I would recommend her to any student struggling with chemistry.
