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.


I have a B.S. in Secondary Education Biology/Gen Science from Kutztown University (GPA 3.70) and a MAT Master in the Art of Teaching from Marygrove College (GPA 3.85).

I was Morris Hills 2008 "Outstanding Teacher of the Year" and I have 15 years experience teaching General Biology, Honors Biology, AP Biology and Academy Biotechnology.


I have instructed a Biotechnology Program for 15 years which applies the study of genetics daily. I earned the National Science Foundation Grant for RNAi & Genome Annotation. Only two innovative high school teachers were selected per state for this 5-day workshop that was presented by the Dolan DNA Learning Center of Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, NY. I have B.S. in Education (Magna Cum Laude) with a concentration in Biology & General Science upon which I took several high level genetics courses. In addition, I have a Master in the Arts of Teaching MAT/DLM degree from Marygrove College with an overall GPA of 3.85.

Physical Science

I graduated Magna Cum Laude from Kutztown University as a Dual Major in Secondary Education/Biology & General Science in 1998. Throughout my 15 year tenure at Morris Hills High School which houses our Academy for Mathematics, Science & Engineering Science Magnet School I have taught the gamut of science courses. Physical science is the study of physics and chemistry of nature. In addition, Physical Science overlaps the life sciences where ecology studies the evidences of historical facts or evolution which I enjoy teaching.


I get many requests to tutor Gen Sci/Biology Praxis students who are preparing for a professional career in Gen Sci/Biology Content Area. I have taken 5 separate Praxis Science Based Exams myself for both NJ and PA certs when I began my teaching career in 1998 in GEN SCI/BIO. This is my 16th year teaching at Morris Hills High School/Academy for Mathematics, Science and Technology both the AP Biology and Academy Biotechnology Courses. In addition, I was recently recognized by Veritas Prep as one of the "40 Most Influential Teachers Under 40".

Track & Field

I have been Head Coach of a successful high school Cross Country and Track & Field Programs for the past 15 years which is nationally recognized. My 4X800 relay team won the 2009 National Championship. I have been named "Coach of the Year" in numerous capacities.
