“**Duane's Tutoring Style**”

I'm a full time Dad and have 6 year old. I have been teaching science for 15 years, and prior to that I worked in the field of biomedical research for 5 years. I am a committed teacher who has worked as a tutor for home schooled students as well as students in need of help learning challenging topics in science. I volunteer at a small school in

*I offer group rates.*

Background Check:

Duane is approved to conduct lessons through Wyzant Online. Wyzant Online allows students and tutors to work remotely via video, audio, and collaborative whiteboard tools. For more information about how online tutoring works, check out Wyzant Online.

If you’re interested in online lessons, message Duane to get started.

Duane taught me how to understand the different concept of physics not just the mathematical part of it. He showed me how all the formulas used in physics have the same root and you can manipulate the formulas to create formulas that works for you.

My 10-year son - math tutoring. My son has more confidence in math and solving equations. He is comfortable working on problems and discussing them in detail.

I'm not a helicopter mom so I keep my check in conversational with my son. Imagine my delight when I asked my son, who had missed a couple of sessions, if he wanted to go or miss a recent session... He said, "No! I have fun! We do x, y, and z and then I can explain stuff to my classmates!" Wow, really?!?

Duane is also very flexible with our time changes. A little too flexible? I would suggest a day-before reminder system either through this system or offline. We love Mr. Duane.

ACT Science, Biochemistry,
Biology,
Approved subjects are in **bold**.

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 tutored math at both the middle and high school levels when I worked in education. As a research scientist, there is great demand to have good sound math computation. As a tutor, I try to make math apply to real situations, so that my students get a greater understanding of the concepts.

I have taught biology in middle school as well as high school for a total of 15 years. I completed my degree (BS) in biochemistry from the Stony Brook University. Finally, I worked in basic science research laboratories in Stony Brook and Harvard and I have been published in the Journal of Biological Chemistry.

I taught chemistry at the high school level and tutored students taking the Chemistry Regents. I make chemistry applicable to things seen everyday and perform laboratory exercises and demonstrates that illuminate aspects of the subject. I design chemistry questions that help students apply concepts and allow me to evaluate their progress. I have a degree (BS) Biochemistry and have worked in basic science laboratories for five years.

I worked with children as young as 2nd grade to student in college teaching science concepts in biology, chemistry, physics, and earth science.

I have taught physical science for 12 years and I use simple demonstrations and real world examples to help student understand physical science. I also explain how these concepts will be applied to math, chemistry, and physics in high school.

As a high school teacher, I have prepared many students in the areas chemistry and biology (living environment) to take standardized tests both at the state level and college preparatory level. My goal in this pursuit in to help my students gain a good grasp on the concepts and to show them area competency will be challenged on these assessments. The other area that is important is confidence and to help my students gain this trait is equally as important as the content that they are learning

I have worked for several organizations that provide test prep for SAT, SAT 2, ACT, ASVAB and NYS regents. I have worked with students at all levels of math from 2nd to 12th grade. I provide a nonjudgemental atmosphere to learn and understand math concepts. I instruct students with tips to make math computation easy as well as understandable in order to create the confidence needed for standardized test.
