I have 20 years of experience teaching Regents Earth Science, and I really love the subject and I believe my passion is evident in my teaching and tutoring. Aside from classroom teaching, I hold several other education-related positions. I am the Lead Content Trainer in Regents Earth Science for New York City. I have served as a teacher-consultant to the New York State Education Department and in that capacity have written questions for the Earth Science Regents exam and have sat on various committees charged with the development of the written exam and the performance exam. I have served as a New York State Mentor in Earth Science and Biology and have mentored many New York City teachers in my school and in the position of High School Science staff developer for my district. In addition, for several years, I taught a graduate meteorology course for the federal government under the auspices of the National Atmospheric and Oceanographic Administration (NOAA). I am New York State certified in Regents Earth Science, Chemistry, Biology, and General Science, grades 7 to 12.
The methods I employ in my tutoring are the same as those which I employ in classroom teaching. I try to make the lesson interesting and engage the student in the lesson and in his/her own achievement. I foster critical thinking by deemphasizing memorization and guiding the student to thinking the problem through, and understanding the steps and concepts required to arrive at a solution. Some things, of course, must be memorized, but to my mind, that really should never be all that learning is about. Investigation, exploration, and analysis achieve far better results, and also helpful is relating concepts in science to experiences and events the student is familiar with.
I'm invested in my student's success and make myself available for questions or problems outside of our tutoring time. The student's success is my success and both are important to me.
Kind and knowledgeable
Faye is great. My daughter learned more with her in one hour than in a month in school! She even brought her own rocks so my daughter could see and touch what they were learning about.Lori, 3 lessons with Faye
Earth Science Tutor
My daughter really liked her tutoring approach. She was kind, patient and knowledgeable of the subject. I'm so happy we found her to help my daughter prepare for the earth science regents.Jane, 3 lessons with Faye
Very knowlegable of the subject and responsible
I am glad that we found Faye to tutor my daughter in Earth Science. She is definitely the best in the subject area. I can see my daughter's grades improved after tutoring and she is more confident to take the Earth Science Regent. What impressed me most is that she is available to answer some homework questions, and she would inform me the correct answer when she had second thought about a practice exam question. It ended up the correct answer given by the classroom teacher was actually not correct, and she explained the thought process to my daughter in detail. I believe with Faye's help, my daughter can get A+ in earth science!Jing, 11 lessons with Faye

Great Earth Science Tutor
We were very pleased with Faye. She is very knowledgeable and easy to deal with. I referred her to a number of my friends because I could see how valuable she would be. I would highly recommend her.Jill, 7 lessons with Faye
Great Tutor and Extremely Reliable
We feel very fortunate to have found Faye through WyzAnt and she has been a great help in preparing our daughter for the Earth Science Regents exam. Being a science teacher herself who is very familiar with not only the subject matter, but the actual test structure, it gave us the confidence to book her for several weeks leading up to the test.Effie, 7 lessons with Faye
