Patient and Knowledgeable Chemistry, Science, and Math Tutor
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.

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.
Rosalyn is calm, patient and knowledgeable - an ideal tutor! She communicates well, and helps make challenging math problems accessible. We will definitely use her again.Emily, 3 lessons with RosalynTutor responded:
Thank you very much.
Great teaching ethics
Ms. Rosalyn is a great tutor for my grandson. She's very pleasant, patient and takes her time explaining and figuring out math problems. She also talks to the parent after the session to let you know what progress has been made. My 11 year old grandson told me to give her a five star rating because he said she was great! He likes tutoring because he feels like he can understand it better.Pamela, 7 lessons with Rosalyn
