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 am a licensed chemistry and physics teacher at a top high school in the state with over 11 years of experience. I have experience teaching all levels of chemistry including AP chemistry (over 93% of my students score a 5) and organic chemistry for high school students. I have taught over 5 years of an SAT Subject Test Prep course for chemistry and I have tutored students for college level general chemistry and organic chemistry. I have a Masters degree in Organic Chemistry at Brandeis University.

Physics

I am a Massachusetts licensed physics teacher with 4 years of experience teaching physics and 12 years teaching on the high school level. I have over 17 years of tutoring experience. I focus on real life connections between the subject matter and everyday experiences and on teaching critical thinking skills. I tutor all levels of chemistry (including college and MCAT), and high school level physics.

Such a Charming Person and a Resourceful Tutor

I have worked with Rebecca for the AP Chemistry test and the SAT Chemistry test. To start out with statistics that most of the tutees will be interested in, I got an 800 on the SAT Chem, and the AP scores are not out yet. She was always so flexible with time, and did not mind, or even was willing to devote time to help me when I called for an SOS help. She replies really quickly to text / e-mails
