About Walt

As a successful tutor I analyze each student's needs and try to determine where they have run into trouble in their particular course. Sometimes I start from the beginning to make sure that they have not misunderstood any of the early material. Without a solid foundation one cannot proceed. For other students I can take them from the point at which they ran into problems and assist in them in moving beyond that point.

My Bachelor's degree was conferred by SUNY Oswego and my Master's by Colby College, Waterville, ME. I am fully and permanently certified by the State of New York Department of Education in several areas of science education, including Chemistry, Physical Science, and Earth Science. I have over twenty years of successful classroom teaching and over ten years of successful tutoring experience.

I look forward to being of assistance to you.

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.
