About Geralyn

I have twenty-eight years of experience teaching Chemistry in the classroom along with tutoring students outside of school. Hundreds of students have completing the course taught by me. Provided with the skills necessary to tackle this subject in college, many have told me that they still use their notes and "tool boxes" in their studies.

Students who come to me for tutoring stop fighting the subject, and become efficient problem solvers.

In both cases I provide the learners with techniques to understand the material at hand and not fear to analytically think like a scientist. The light bulb goes on and continues to glow. This is why I love doing what I do!

I am a member of the Delaware Teachers of Science, the 2006 Chemistry Teacher of the year and the New Castle County Vocational School District Teacher of 2008. I am a teacher mentor and was just awarded the class of 2016's Most Inspirational Teacher. I have a highly qualified status and I am the go to person when a student needs to pass Physical Science for graduation, as well as those who are "circling the drain' in Chemistry.

I approach Chemistry with a sense of humor and provide practical methods to learn the subject. Using this procedure, I provide the student with the confidence to take responsibility for their own learning process.

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.

Chemistry

I have twenty-eight years of experience and am still teaching Chemistry levels General, Honors, AP, and Elementary Organic Chemistry. In addition to the theory, I am well acquainted with the laboratory procedures. I was also Delaware's Chemistry teacher of the year in 2009.

Organic Chemistry

I teach an elementary course in Organic Chemistry which includes alkanes, alkenes, alkynes, aromatic compounds, amino acids, proteins, and alcohols.

I cover reactions of the above groups along with synthesis reactions.

Really good!

She was very nice and I felt really good going to take my test after my tutoring session. After the session she said if I had anymore questions to email her and she will answer the questions. I would ask for her help again, she was really good.
