About Sandra


Bio

I enjoy working and interacting with students and mentoring them to achieve their career goals. Science is my passion, and has been ever since high school. Have been honored to be named one of Wyzant's Top 10% Tutors for 2020.

I have taught undergraduate degree level Chemistry for over six years combined, at college institutions. As an engineering major, Math has always been an integral part of the degree program up to graduate level, hence my proficiency here. I also tutor in Algebra,...

I enjoy working and interacting with students and mentoring them to achieve their career goals. Science is my passion, and has been ever since high school. Have been honored to be named one of Wyzant's Top 10% Tutors for 2020.

I have taught undergraduate degree level Chemistry for over six years combined, at college institutions. As an engineering major, Math has always been an integral part of the degree program up to graduate level, hence my proficiency here. I also tutor in Algebra, Calculus, Trigonometry, and Geometry.

I like to work with underlying first principles, I believe that once you, the student, understand concepts, you can then apply them to any situation or problem! I believe learning is best done when enjoyed. Students are free to learn in their own style and pace, and I'll try to accommodate various learning approaches. A 3-hr cancellation policy honored by both sides is appreciated, unless extenuating circumstances occur.

Please feel free to contact me if you need help in Mathematics or Chemistry, I look forward to working with you, and helping you achieve your goals. I prefer online contacts.

knowledgeable and patient tutor

Sandra very patiently went through SAT math material with my son. She was able to pinpoint the areas that my son is weak on and gave him extra practice. Most importantly she motivated my son to do better and go the extra mile

Pam, 10 lessons with Sandra

AWESOME!

Sandra is a very great tutor , super patient and helped me understand everything better! I will definitely be using her again! I highly recommend her

Keurline, 1 lesson with Sandra

Thank you Mrs. Sandra

Thank you for helping my daughter. She was very excited about you helping her. We look forward to seeing you on Monday.

Alisha, 14 lessons with Sandra

Patient and Encouraging

I liked how easy Sandra was to work with. She was never condescending, only encouraging which helps in building my confidence with math. I appreciate Sandra's patient and mild approach to correction and teaching strategies.

Malena, 4 lessons with Sandra

my daughter thinks she’s really good

She helped my daughter focus and understand the concepts in math for 5th graders. She was patient with her.

Christine, 23 lessons with Sandra

Great work!

My daughter said Sandra was very nice and helpful. She is very knowledgeable about Chemistry. We will continue to use her.

Tamu, 4 lessons with Sandra

Math

Sandra was great! She worked on some fundamental steps to help gauge where my daughter starting point. Very patient with my daughter even when we were have technical issues.

Tawanda, 5 lessons with Sandra

Excellent tutor

Sandra has helped my daughter Aliya tremendously thus far. Aliya is becoming more confident in her work and has commented that Sandra is great at explaining problems and walking through equations. Before connecting with Sandra, Aliya was falling behind in class. She’s now all caught up and her grades have improved.

Maha, 12 lessons with Sandra

Prealgebra

Sandra is patient yet attuned to my 10 year old daughter’s learning needs. While she is taking an advanced math class and is very skilled at math, she was becoming very reticent to demonstrate her knowledge. And given her virtual class is only once per week I could see she needed more teacher interaction. Working with Sandra has helped my daughter to shine and once again be excited regarding her favorite subject, math. And she declares “that was so fun!” at the end of tutoring sessions. Moreover, on her last test, my daughter scored 1 point from mastery, the highest score. We are very happy working with Sandra and I highly recommend her.
