I am a retired mathematics and science high school teacher who still holds a valid State Teaching License. During my nearly twenty years of experience, I taught Biology, Chemistry, Algebra and other similar subjects. Also, during those twenty years, I attended many training opportunities describing various teaching techniques. I have a degree in Chemistry and Social Work and a university issued certificate of completion in Education. I have taught science and math in Egypt, in Guyana as a Peace Corps Volunteer and on two Native American Reservations in New Mexico and Arizona.

I have been tutoring adults for just over two years. During that time, I worked with nearly fifty students trying to pass either their TEAS or their HESI Test and about 75% of those students obtained a score which allowed them to enter the school of their choice. I realize that students have different learning styles and I try to present material to accommodate them. I can provide study materials, practice tests, and links to videos I used while in the classroom. I also present mini-lessons as needed, use a whiteboard to demonstrate math problems, and record the session.

The material which you must master is mostly at the high school or middle school level and I am very well suited to teach at this level. I can’t guarantee that you will pass but I can say that I will do everything I can to try to make it happen.

TEAS

I have eighteen years of experience as a high school math and science teacher. During that time, I taught for one year at an international school in Egypt, taught for two years in Guyana, South America as a Peace Corps Volunteer and spent the rest of my career in teaching assignments at native American high schools operated by the Bureau of Indian Education. I have an excellent understanding of the topics found in the TEAS and HESI Tests. These topics include: chemistry, biology, anatomy and physiology, general science, math and algebra. I have a passable knowledge of English grammar, sentence structure, and vocabulary and can provide many useful tips on how to excel in your reading test. More importantly, I know how to teach these topics so that you will understand them well enough to get a good score your test. I acquired this knowledge while earning my Bachelor of Science Degree in Chemistry, Masters Degree in Social Work and my teaching credentials. I currently hold an active state teaching license. I have tutored about fifty students and about 90 percent of them either obtained a test score equal to or above that required by their school or have retaken the test for a second time and obtained the needed score. If I become your tutor, I can give you access to my personal library of videos, written study materials, access to your own Quizlet Class and recording of all of our meetings. Contact me and we can start this week.
