About Tiffany

Having graduated with my Bachelor of Science in Nutrition from Rutgers University, I am now pursuing my Master's Degree in Sport Management at Barry University. I have tutored biology, microbiology, chemistry, anthropology, and various topics in Nutrition at Rutgers for over two years. I am very experienced in teaching math, in particular Calculus, Algebra I & II, Geometry, Trigonometry, and Statistics. Students that I've tutored have never been hesitant or shy about asking me questions. There is no such thing as a "stupid" question. I am very patient and love helping students succeed, no matter how long it takes. Everyone works at a different pace, and it is very important to me that a student truly understands the concepts I am teaching.

I specialize in helping students prepare for standardized exams. I am qualified and experienced in helping students prepare for the GRE, GMAT, MCAT, SAT, PSAT, ACT, and GED. I've tutored numerous students in preparation to take standardized tests. I am very comfortable with the material presented. I am able to help students at a comfortable speed in order to master concepts that will show up on the exam. For example, I break down each component of the math section and help students visualize and use strategies to implement during the exam to improve their score. A standardized test can be tricky. There are many strategies to figure out how to interpret each problem and to figure out what is being asked. Guiding you how to approach the questions and providing certain techniques, I can help you conquer it!

Another area of expertise for me is college counseling. Writing a great college admissions essay is a crucial part of gaining admission into the university of your choice. There are many components that need to be taken into consideration when writing essays, especially with the given prompts.
Writing is a strong suit of mine, and I take great pride in my ability to help others with their writing. I do a tremendous amount of editing and proofreading for fellow colleagues and students.

I have helped many students with their study skills. Each student has individual strengths and weaknesses. It is my job to figure out those strengths and weaknesses. Once assessing a student, I tailor study skills to each student's age and needs. I do a comprehensive overview of study strategies, homework habits, memorization mechanisms, and time management. Being able to manage time efficiently is not only a great study skill, but also a life long skill that will lead to success.

Being a great public speaker takes practice and strategy. It is a skill that is beyond helpful not only in the classroom setting, but also in the workplace- weather it be a job interview or a corporate meeting. I will work with someone until they have the ability to feel comfortable and confident speaking in front of crowds.

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.

Anthropology

I have taken many courses in anthropology, specifically in cultural anthropology. I've done fieldwork with my professors and assisted in their research in the cultural variations among humans in urban settings. I have keen insight into the origins of industrial society, as well as globalism, ethnic values, and gender studies.

Basketball

Having been a varsity basketball player and attending numerous clinics, I can teach the essential skills of boxing out, shooting, game strategy, etc. I have also served as an assistant coach analyzing court plays when I was injured for a season. I have helped players correct their free throw shots and improve on defense.

College Counseling

Having experience working in a college admissions office, I feel I can adequately help students prepare for college by building credentials that stand out and helping with personal statements / required essays. I've also helped many colleagues in counseling in regards to taking certain classes and picking a major.

Cosmetology

I have my makeup artistry certification from CAMMUA in Hollywood, CA as of March 2013. I've done makeup and hair styling for the past three years freelance. I can teach the art of makeup for a large range of purposes, from everyday to special events.

Fitness

Having my Bachelor of Science in Nutrition, I am qualified to help other engage in fitness. I can make meal plans with paralleling workouts in order to aid a client.

GED

I've tutored numerous students to prepare to take the GED. I am comfortable with the material presented. My strong suit is math, I am able to help students at a comfortable speed master concepts that will show up on the GED. I break down each component of the math section and help students visualize and use strategies to implement during the exam to improve their score.

Homeschool

I have homeschooled children in secondary education. I work in a consecutive manner, meaning I meet with students 3-5 times per week for 2-4 hours meeting periods. The manner in which I perform homeschooling is to prepare the student to take the GED (General Education Development) exam. This exam essentially takes the place of a high school diploma in order to either get a desired job or enter the university. Additionally, I help students prepare for the SAT as part of the homeschooling if a student wishes to gain entrance into college. Homeschooling requires sticking to a schedule, similar to public or private schooling. I am very thorough and tutor all subject areas to meet the needs of each individual student on a case by case basis.

MCAT

The MCAT consists of Biological and Biochemical Foundations of Living Systems, Chemical and Physical Foundations of Biological Systems, Psychological, Social, and Biological Foundations of Behavior, and Critical Analysis and Reasoning Skills. I have tutored both students and colleagues in all of these areas. I also tutor many students in test preparation for standardized exams. I can help students with many tips and strategies. The MCAT is not something that can be conquered by memorization. Knowing the material is the first step, then utilizing the skills and strategies towards approaching questions is what creates success.

Nutrition

I have my Bachelor of Science degree in Nutrition from Rutgers University. I have tutored courses in Nutrition while at Rutgers: Life Span Nutrition, Community Nutrition, Advanced Nutrition, Experimental Foods, Introduction to Nutrition, and Medical Nutrition Therapy.

Organic Chemistry

I have received an A in the organic chemistry sequence at Rutgers University. I've tutored my peers in the subject. I'm able to draw structures to help students visualize conformations. I'm versed in IUPAC nomenclature. I feel very comfortable with the subject.

Public Speaking

I have taken numerous courses in Public Speaking, and gotten an "A" in each of these courses. I have worked as a spokesperson for Transaero International Inc. I've coached others how to become comfortable getting in front of crowds and I've taught them essential public speaking techniques.

Study Skills

I have helped many students with their study skills. Each student has individual strengths and weaknesses. It is my job to figure out those strengths and weaknesses. Once assessing a student, I tailor study skills to each student's age and needs. I do a comprehensive overview of study strategies, homework habits, memorization mechanisms, and time management. Being able to manage time efficiently is not only a great study skill, but also a life long skill that will lead to success.

Track & Field

I was a varsity athlete for six years. After graduating from high school, I had volunteered and coached middle distance track along with pole vaulting and high jumping. I've been to numerous camps and clinics for both pole vaulting and high jumping. I feel confident teaching the techniques involved in the sport.

Zoology

I've taken numerous courses in zoology. I am very knowledgeable in particular with oceanic zoology, which I've tutored as a part of the Biology series at Rutgers University. I've also done field work with the University of California in Santa Barbara pertaining to tide pooling.
