About Regina

I am currently an ESL Teacher in an online platform, but want to maintain my knowledge in other areas.

I obtained my Bachelor’s of Science in Biotechnology in December 2012 from the University of Central Florida. During the course of my studies, I learned to render statistical information with Excel, and increased my math skills up to Calculus II and Physics with Calculus II.

The areas that I excel at include Biology, Chemistry/Organic Chemistry, and Algebra/Precalculus. I have been tutoring for more than four years.

I am a very patient instructor and very flexible regarding scheduling. I lay out practical ways a student might advance his or her understanding of the material and coach the student not to get discouraged with difficult material. I draw on my understanding from sports, cooking, or other real-world examples to make the material accessible to the student, and use numerous tools to check the student's understanding.

I prefer to tutor online. I will also work with students who have unusual requirements. Sometimes, students need to catch up in school, want to work ahead, or just need homework check and a study partner. Let me know what you or your student need, and we'll work out a plan for success!

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.

Biology

Biology is a fascinating subject. It's all around us! In some ways, it is easy to learn, and in others, it challenges us to our core.

You want a tutor who is passionate about this subject, whose experience allows fluency. Fluency leads to exceptional ability to teach the subject. You will get that with me; I made a subdiscipline of Biology my major!

Chemistry

Chemistry is everything. You can get through life without knowing chemistry, but you can't get through life without chemistry. It's who you are, it's what is around you. It's how you cook, it's how you eat and digest and think and grow.

That is why it's useful to know it. Anyone can follow a recipe, but can you create one? Want to be a hairdresser or nail technician? Want to make soaps or shampoos or antimicrobial socks? Want to create jewelry from metals or stones, or would you like to know which gases are in stars light years away? Want to understand your favorite sci-fi show? You'll need this subject.

I can help you learn it.

Microbiology

Microbes...How many types do you know of? How can we study them? How have we come to know how they operate?

They are everywhere and they are involved in symbiotic relationships, in every niche from humans to lichens.

When you study microbiology, you study the different organisms, their structures and their functions in their environments. You cover true bacteria, and the enigmatic archaea, as well as microscopic single-celled and multi-celled eukaryotes.

You also cover different methods for their identification and other studies, exploring the biochemical laboratory techniques.

Let me know if or how I can help!

Prealgebra

Your 6th or 7th grader is likely increasing their use of letters to represent numbers. For some, this can be confusing. Also, replacing the x for multiplication with a dot or parentheses, and the many formulas they must learn can be overwhelming.

I can help give your middle schooler a solid foundation in preparation for algebra which will help them through higher math classes, as well. I focus on concepts and methods, here, and tailor my approach to the student's learning style.

I treat the student with respect and coach them if they continue to find the work difficult. For many students, it just takes time to start making the connections. Once my students "get it" they have it and are able to do the work on their own.
