Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute
I have a passion for teaching and learning, and I do my best to engage students in the material. In my full time job I am a chemistry teacher. I approach learning with a fun and upbeat tempo, and am very patient with those who may not get it on the first try. I also coach volleyball and track and field, and am very interested in helping students grow athletically as well - I was a Division III All American in track and field and recently went to nationals for NCAA Division II in the hammer throw. Music is another one of my passions and something I am interested in helping others learn - I sang in an a cappella group all 4 years in college and had many solos during my time there. I earned my bachelor of science degree in Chemical Engineering from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, and an M.S. in Science Education with a concentration in chemistry from Florida Institute of Technology.

Connor is an excellent tutor! She has an excellent teaching style. Very patient and she takes the time and breaks the material down that made it very easy for my high school son to understand the concepts.
In just three weeks we have seen amazing results with Connor as a tutor for our daughter taking the IB Chemistry. Connor has excellent skills, is a very nice person and makes sure what she is teaching is understood. She is great and we are going to recommend her to anyone.
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.
I am a boarding school chemistry teacher. One of the most important things when working with elementary age students is to be patient and provide positive feedback and positive reinforcement. Make sure that the beginning of each lesson starts off on a positive note and makes them feel comfortable and willing to put in the work. Present the information in multiple ways to reinforce confidence and understanding. Practice, practice, practice!
I am a current track and field coach in the throws (shot, disc, and javelin and am capable of coaching hammer throw and weight throw). I have been competing in track and field for the last 6 years, in all 5 of the above events, and I was a Division III All American in 2009.
This past spring I held an a cappella week long course at the school where I teach, and have sang in an a cappella group for all 4 years of college, and have been singing since I was very young. I had multiple solos during my time in college.
I am a current volleyball coach at the varsity level, and competed for 4 years in high school before pursuing track and field in college.
