I am NYS certified to teach high school physics, and visual art. I worked at the New York State Department of Education as a science teacher for the last four years I taught physics, living environment, and earth science. I have been privately tutoring science, and art for more than ten years. My students usually receive in the 95th percentile on their Regents exams. I'm passionate about the arts, know many techniques and work with many media. I'll work with you to get you to where you want to be.
My undergraduate education was a duel major in physics and arts, with a minor in biology. I'm passionate about science and art and in my personal work I always try to incorporate both of them. Currently I'm working on my 2nd masters at NYU in mental health and wellness counseling, and have a 3.87 GPA.
I truly enjoy that "aha" moment when one of my clients finally understands something for the first time. I'll keep working with you until you are able to understand and do what you want to do.
Please feel free to contact me anytime, we can schedule appointments for the weekend, after school or during the summer. I'd be happy to discuss in more details how I can help you achieve your goals.

Terrific physics tutor!

Yara helped my daughter understand concepts that she thought were super complicated. She is feeling so much relief now that we have Yara’s help. She was friendly, easy to communicate with and is a terrific support to learning high school physics.
