About Ciera

I graduated last May from Cooper Union as a chemical engineering major and biomedical engineering minor. I have experience in ACT and SAT Preparation and tutoring in several math and science disciplines. Most of my experience is in working with unmotivated or discouraged high school students. I think the most rewarding part of tutoring is helping students achieve a score or grade, or even getting into a college they never thought was possible. In addition to tutoring, I am an analyst in the Product Development department of a financial services company and in my free time I love cooking, baking, trying new restaurants- really anything involving food!

I first began tutoring family friends and my younger sister in high school in math (everything from pre-algebra to calculus), chemistry, biology, anatomy and physiology, physics, etc. Through out college I volunteered to tutor under privileged high school students through The National Society of Black Engineers in a comprehensive SAT preparation class. Since then I've primarily tutored for the ACT, college level Chemistry and calculus students, SHSAT prep as well as 8th grade math and high school level geometry. For test prep students I construct a customized scheduled based on their needs including diagnostic testing to provide the student and their parents with a range they can expect their student to score in by the test date and statistics on how much the student has improved during the time we've worked together.

Due to my versatile background I am prepared to work with students in a wide array of test prep, math, and science topics.

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.

Chemical Engineering

I have a degree in chemical engineering from The Cooper Union. Cooper Union is one of the most selective engineering programs in the US. I have a major GPA of 3.1.
