Hi, I have been tutoring middle school and high school students for 16 years. I have taught science in a private school in Connecticut. My education includes premedical studies at Wellesley and Harvard and medical studies at University of Connecticut.

My focus is to connect with the student and tailor the lesson to the student's needs. My strength lies in explaining concepts so that the student can understand. I use a lot of visuals in my online classes. Lessons can be recorded so student can view again as needed.

Connection between student and teacher is key. If after first half hour you do not feel that it is a good fit and do not continue, I will not charge for that first half hour session.

Please contact me to see if I may help you with SAT chemistry, SAT biology, IB biology, IB chemistry, AP biology, and Regents in chemistry.

Knowledgeable tutor

My daughter (a sophomore in high school) needed help with chemistry. Sona was super helpful with helping her with net iconic equations and signal/double replacement reactions.

Paula, 1 lesson with Sona

Very good teacher

Sona helped me with chemistry and gave me good explanations on the principles and trends of the periodic table that I needed to know for a test.

Ming, 1 lesson with Sona

Extremely knowledgable and helpful

Sona is very knowledgable. She gives hints on how to approach and solve problems and doesn't just give you answers. She helps getting you to look at problems the right way.

Sona S. Biology Tutor

Sona S. is an extraordinary tutor for biology. My daughter is taking IB biology in the 11th grade and Sona is actually teaching her so that she truly understands it. Her teacher in school had my daughter explain something that the class didn't understand. My daughter could explain it because Sona had taught it to her. Best tutor we have ever had.

Biology class

Sona is absolutely wonderful at pulling out the key points, at the same time making them concise and easy to understand. She is also very flexible, when the internet interrupts or when the sound is muffled by whatever reasons, she does an awesome job at solving those like asking to call on the phone and also suggested typing out the words.

Great Teacher

My daughter struggled so much studying for SAT 2 Chem because her school did not cover everything. She got 620 on her 1st practice test, and that discouraged my daughter. We were searching for a chem tutor and we found out about Wyzant and Sona. My daughter had 5 sessions with Sona over 2 weeks and she got 740 on an actual SAT2. 120 points went up in 2 weeks! Sona knows everything about Chem and she knows how to explain things. Also, Sona's visual tool helped a lot when my daughter went over the stuffs she learned. I cannot thank her enough. Sona is a great teacher, and the result shows that.

Knowledgeable and patient tutor! Highly recommend!

Sona is a wonderful tutor; she prepared me very well for the biology subject test. She helped me review all the topics of the exam and patiently guided me through practice test questions. She is extremely knowledgeable and thanks to her help over the past two weeks, I felt confident when I was taking the subject test!

Title: Great tutor! Sona is amazing!

Sona is a great tutor who helped me learn a lot of biology I needed for the SAT biology subject test. She isn’t your traditional I-teach-and-you-listen tutor. Instead, she takes time to figure out what you already know, what you need to work on, and teaches you accordingly. Sona has been a tremendous help to me, and I highly recommend her to everyone looking to learn more about biology.

Wonderful Tutor!!!

Sona is preparing my daughter for Chemistry Regents. She is very knowledgeable and patient. She can explain the material in a way that it is very easy to understand and supports her lessons with typed explanations, pictures and tables. Everything is prepared in advance and not one minute is wasted. My daughter feels very comfortable and happy with her progress so far.
