About Cherylyn

As an experienced professional educator I help high school and college students learn chemistry and physical science, improve analytical skills, and develop problem solving skills. My students' confidence, learning pace, and test scores increase. I have been teaching chemistry and physical science for more than five 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.

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.

Organic Chemistry

I studied and did research in organic chemistry, earning my PhD in organic chemistry at the University of Arizona. I taught chemistry labs and tutored chemistry students of all abilities. In industry, I synthesized new organic materials that were commercially successful. They are now used in a wide variety of electronic devices.
