About Magnia

My passion is middle and high school science teaching, which I currently do at a small private school. I have also worked at a literacy center so I am able to blend that knowledge with my teaching and tutoring. I have a strong mathematics background because of my degrees in chemistry and pharmacy. I have been tutoring since I was an undergraduate student - that was over 20 years ago! I'm very direct and honest with students about their abilities and potential. I believe that learners should know their strengths as well as their areas for improvement. I love to use weird topics that connect with subjects to make the learning experience more memorable.

Most of the mathematics I use on a daily basis is the prerequisite knowledge for algebra. A strong ability in mental mathematics is important for science learning, so I am always challenging my students with science problems that integrate mathematics.

I have worked in several science disciplines so I know how to pull what students know in one subject into another to help them make connections.

Much of the work I did as a college professor involved writing and speaking. I also assigned a lot of writing assignments and presentations in my classes so that my students could gain more practice with writing and public speaking.

If you are looking to become a stronger student overall but are having trouble in a particular subject or two, I am the tutor you want. If you're willing to work hard, I will be in your corner 100%.

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 a Bachelor of Science in Chemistry

Grammar

I have prior tutor and teaching experience in this area. My experience includes writing and grammar. I have tutored and taught students at the pre-college and college level.

Pharmacology

I have a M. S. in Pharmacy from the University of Texas at Austin (2000). My coursework and research thesis work was completed in the Dept. of Pharmacology and Toxicology. My specific area of research was determining quantitative levels of brain chemicals in rats and mice. My tutoring area is pharmacy math.

Physical Science

I have a Bachelor of Science in Chemistry, for which knowledge of physical science is required. I have taught and tutored this subject for over five years. I use hands-on and technology methods to help students master this subject.

Prealgebra

I integrate computation and mental mathematics daily in teaching science at the middle school level. I have tutored students in this subject to reinforce weak math skills or provide enrichment experiences. I also use projects and other hands-on activities to build student competency.

Vocabulary

I have a strong vocabulary background due to my academic background. I also took Latin which is the basis for many words that we use in the English language. It is also the basis of many scientific and medical terms which I have encountered in my professional experience.

My daughter was impressed with the help that Magnia provided. She helped her with homework, and did reinforced skills she forgot during the Summer months. Great tutor and look forward to other lessons.
