About Margaret

Hello, I am a retired, certified Science teacher from New York City where I got my BS and MS, and also from Boston (for 40 years) where I obtained a Certificate of Advanced Graduate Study in Science Education at Boston College. I loved my job and my students and the only reason I retired is because I needed a double knee replacement. I moved to Hampstead 3 years ago to be close to my nephew and his three children.

I have taught in the last 45 years all grade levels from K to 12 and was an Adjunct Professor at Massasoit Community College. At the college level I taught General Chemistry I and General Chemistry 2. I have experience teaching Biology, Genetics, Earth Science, Physical Science, and elementary science. I have also tutored students one-on-one and in small groups. My tutoring experience was very rewarding because I was able to see a student's progress and watch them achieve back at their school. I also have tutored a student for the GED and she passed the exam and I tutored for the SAT tests in Chemistry.

I use a variety of techniques in tutoring dependent on the student's learning style. I purchase my own materials and books as needed. I prefer to tutor at your home or the library because I have a Corgi dog and a long-haired domestic cat. Traveling from Hampstead north to Snead's Ferry or south as far as Landfall or UNCW is not a problem. I am happy to provide you with names and phone numbers of other educators who know me. Thank you for considering me for the job.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam.
