About Victoria


Bio

Hello!

I have taught middle and high school science over the course of 8 years. I've taught 8th grade for two years, 6th grade for five years, and high school for one year. I've done tutoring throughout my career as a teacher and I enjoy this one-on-one because it really allows me to focus on the needs of the student.

My love for science started in 7th grade when my science teacher first introduced us to cells. I went on to major in Biology and have had the privilege to carry out...

Hello!

I have taught middle and high school science over the course of 8 years. I've taught 8th grade for two years, 6th grade for five years, and high school for one year. I've done tutoring throughout my career as a teacher and I enjoy this one-on-one because it really allows me to focus on the needs of the student.

My love for science started in 7th grade when my science teacher first introduced us to cells. I went on to major in Biology and have had the privilege to carry out scientific research alongside scientists at Dartmouth College, Columbia University, and James Cook University in Australia. I believe that students learn best when the teacher is invested in their learning and tutoring one-on-one allows me to show students that I care about their learning. I also have a knack for making things interesting, fun, and simple for the students who are having a hard time learning something difficult.

I have strong verbal and writing skills; I enjoy reading in my spare time. I have also successfully taught two summer courses in Living Environment.

Currently, I work for a large real estate company crunching numbers and providing tenants with excellent customer service. Feel free to contact me if your needs are within the subjects of math, science, English, and/or Spanish.

Vocabulary

Science is a content heavy, therefore, vocabulary heavy subject. Throughout my teaching career, I've become more effective in teaching children vocabulary. I use: multiple modes of exposure to teach the same vocabulary word, chunked reading texts, flashcards and games that incorporate these flashcards. I also teach root words which can allow a student to decipher difficult words. Finally, I'm a voracious reader so my vocabulary bank is dense; I can recognize, ahead of time, which words will be difficult for students and make an immediate decision on how to best teach it.

Biology

I majored in the biological sciences at Mount Holyoke College. During my undergrad education, I was able to conduct research within the field of molecular biology at Dartmouth College. Since then, I have completed research at Columbia University and James Cook University in Australia. All of this research experience, plus my eight years of teaching, have allowed me to become a successful tutor/teacher.

Ecology

I majored in the biological sciences at Mount Holyoke College. Ecology was an integral part of every class that I took while working towards my degree. But most importantly, I have taught ecology every year for the last six years. Most recently, my students took a challenging ecology midterm (based on the Living Environment Regents) and the average score was a 70%, five percentage points above the passing grade. Using a data analysis tool, I know what concepts I need to reteach and will be doing so with more hands-on activities. I can apply these same skills to produce even more fruitful outcomes as a one-on-one tutor.
