About Romina

Hi there, I believe teaching is a way to continue learning while increasing students knowledge. On the other hand, tutoring is a combination of teaching and guidance. As a tutor, I guide students to help them improve their grades and provide the motivation and eagerness to learn a subject.

I have a bachelor's degree in Biology and a master's degree in Biological and Physical Sciences. I am an Adjunct Professor of Biology at Essex County College. I took many courses in Biomedical Sciences as part of a master's degree curriculum. More than five years of exposure to the Biomedical Sciences between undergrad and graduate school makes me an excellent, knowledgeable tutor who will work at your pace and will help you achieve the scores you want to become a successful student in the sciences. I can teach all levels of Biology, as well as Anatomy & Physiology I & II. We will start by making a study plan on the concepts you have problems with, and then, we will tackle them one by one with the help of color graphics, practicing questions and explanations. I also provide cheat sheets to help you memorize and understand the concepts.

I am also a Spanish tutor. I am a native Spanish speaker with a superlative command of the Spanish language. I have previously worked translating documents at work and as an oral translator between my coworkers and Spanish people. I also teach Medical Spanish. I will help you learn Spanish, the culture, literature, history and, of course, grammar, conversation, and intonation to high standards. I teach all levels of Spanish to students of all ages. We will work on a study plan suited to your needs, practice lots of questions and the use of Spanish words in a correct context. I will give you homework which is going to be evaluated and explained to you in the next session.

I tailor my tutoring sessions based on individual student needs and learning styles. My goal is to build confidence in your capability through the support and encouragement I plan to provide you. I believe that making learning fun is an important part of helping my students to develop an ongoing passion for learning.

I offer group lessons for a different and affordable rate per hour.

I am happy to travel up to 10 miles from Harrison, NJ. I require a minimum of 1.5 hours for Spanish and 2 hours for the sciences. I am flexible with time, and I do have a 24-hour cancellation policy.

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.

Algebra 1

I worked as a Mathematics Supplemental Instructor at Essex County College. I have experience teaching arithmetic and algebra to high school and college students.

Algebra 2

I worked as a Mathematics Supplemental Instructor at Essex County College. I have experience teaching algebra II to high school and college students.

Anatomy

I have a Bachelor's degree in Biology from Rutgers University and a Master's degree in Biological and Physical Sciences from Touro College of Osteopathic Medicine. The courses I master are Anatomy and Physiology I and II, Comparative Vertebrate Anatomy, and Embryology. I have some knowledge in Neuroanatomy as well.

Biology

I have a Bachelor's degree in Biology from Rutgers University and Master's degree in Biological and Physical Sciences from Touro College of Osteopathic Medicine. I can teach any levels of Biology. I am currently an Adjunct Professor of Biology at Essex County College. I tutor General Biology, Plant Ecology, Foundations Biology, and Cell Biology. I have some knowledge in Microbiology and Parasitology as well. I provide you with cheat-sheets and create a study plan based on you needs. I use figures and graphics a lot in order to help you understand and memorize the concepts.

Physiology

The courses I master are Mammalian Physiology and Human Physiology. Another course I can help you with is Physiopathology. My knowledge on this subject came from my years majoring in Biology from Rutgers University and a master's degree in Biological and Physical Sciences from Touro College of Osteopathic Medicine. I create a study plan based on your needs. My teaching approach is through graphics and figures from Physiology textbooks. I teach college physiology, especially to those majoring in Biology, Nursing or any major in the medical sciences.

Spanish

I was born and raised in a Spanish country in South America, which gave me the ability to master the language and understand the Hispanic culture. I took several classes in Spanish during my first 20 years of my life in South America as, for example, Spanish grammar, General Spanish Literature, Medical Spanish, and History of Spanish countries. Then, in New Jersey, I took more Spanish classes in literature, Iberian/Spanish History, Latino Bilingualism in the U.S., and World Civilization in Spanish. I worked as an oral translator between coworkers and Hispanics and also in the translation of documents from English to Spanish or vice-versa. Besides teaching Spanish, I also give you some inside information about the Spanish culture, history, food and the differences among them. I provide cheat-sheets and practice tests, I will help you in the pronunciation of words and the use of them in the correct context. I could help you with Spanish essay writing as well.
