About Rosalyn

I am a retired chemist and high school chemistry teacher with a passion for improving the lives of others through education and a long history of doing so in a variety of situations. When I tutor someone, I like to start by finding out what they already know and what their needs are. Then, I tailor my lesson to the needs of the person receiving my services. My main area of expertise is chemistry. However, I can also tutor students in arithmetic, algebra, geometry, physics, history, and English grammar. I maintained a grade point average greater than 3.5 in a 4.0 system from first grade through college and have done very well on standardized tests, so I could also tutor those who need to pass standardized tests.

I have a Bachelor's degree in chemistry with a minor in mathematics. In undergraduate school, I served as a member of the Tutorial Staff. In graduate school, I took courses in biochemistry and organic chemistry and worked as a graduate teaching assistant. I taught the laboratory and problem-solving sessions associated with the freshman chemistry course.

I have a Master's degree in secondary teaching with a concentration in special education. Prior to retiring, I was certified to teach chemistry and physical science for grades 6-12 in Delaware, where I taught high school chemistry and physics. I was also certified as a Teacher of Exceptional Children for grades K-12. As the mother of a special needs son with autism, I understand the importance of recognizing the unique needs, interests, and abilities of each person and like to incorporate them into my lessons. I am continuing to apply this principle as a volunteer math tutor in a job training program for students who also need to improve their academic skills to graduate from the program.

I have over twenty years of experience as a research chemist in the pharmaceutical industry. I was responsible for developing and using methods to make, purify, and analyze new compounds in order to discover new treatments for a variety of medical conditions. I was often one of the first in my department to embrace and learn new technologies. I eagerly passed on what I learned to others.

I am a very serious student of the Bible and can also tutor people in Biblical studies. My preparation includes courses and seminars offered in churches and self-study. As I learn, I pass what I learn on to others and I learn from them. I have 20 years of experience teaching adults and children Biblical principles of living in a variety of formats. I have taught Sunday School in my church and Vacation Bible School in churches, community centers, and private homes. In addition, I have facilitated Bible study discussions in private homes and at lunch-time get-togethers.

In summary, I enjoy tutoring students at all stages of life from elementary school to college and adults seeking to qualify for a better job by passing an exam or course. I have extensive experience teaching and tutoring people in chemistry, math, and Biblical studies, but can also teach English grammar, history, and physics. I like to tailor my lessons to meet the needs, abilities, and interests of the individual student. I believe in using what the student knows, can do, and likes to do to teach him or her what is needed to meet the student's desired goals.

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.

Algebra 1

I am a science teacher. I have taught high school chemistry and physics and college freshman chemistry problem-solving classes. As a part of my courses, I have to teach students math, including algebra, geometry, and trigonometry so they can work the problems. I have always done very well on standardized math exams, such as the SAT test and Praxis I math. I also tutored students in math when I was in college.

Bible Studies

I have taught and facilitated Biblical Study lessons for adults and children for 20 years through my church. I have also shared facilitation responsibilities for a weekly lunchtime Bible Study group on my job for over 5 years.

Chemistry

I was a chemist for more than 30 years. I am certified in Delaware as a Highly Qualified Teacher of Chemistry and have one year of experience teaching high school chemistry.

Government & Politics

I had a fantastic and tremendously inspiring government teacher in high school. I grew up in the Washington D.C. area, so much of what was local news to us was national news to the rest of the country. As a result of our dynamic classroom discussions, I learned a lot about the structure and inner workings of government, as well as the political side of it.
What she taught me has inspired me to be a volunteer for the political campaigns of several people running for offices on the local, state, and national level. It has also led me to attend events sponsored by elected officials and to express my opinion to elected officials on issues that were of importance to me.

Organic Chemistry

I was a synthetic organic chemist in the pharmaceutical industry for over 30 years.

Physical Science

I am certified as a Teacher of Physical Science in Delaware. I have one year of experience teaching high school chemistry and physics. I also have over 30 years of experience as a chemist.

Praxis

I have taken and passed the Praxis I reading, math, and writing tests with scores of 184, 185, and 178, respectively. I have also passed the Praxis II Chemistry (0245- scored 176 ), Physical Science (0281- scored 180), and Special Education (0354- scored 184) exams.

Special Needs

I've taken special educations courses in special education elementary curriculum, assistive technology, assessment, diagnosis, and IEP development, and applied behavior analysis. I also passed the Praxis II 0354 Special Education Content Knowledge exam with a 184, and am certified to teach exceptional children in Delaware for grades K-12.
