My past students describe me as a motivating and engaging teacher who can bring excitement and thoughtfulness to any lesson. As a fun but rigorous tutor, my hope is to help my students how to understand and appreciate the material, as well as how it applies to their lives.

I have over 10 years of teaching and tutoring experience combined working with students from all walks of life - from tiny two-year olds to undergraduate chemistry and biology students. I've even had the opportunity to work privately with the elderly in mastering the concepts of the math GED.

While everyone THINKS notecards are the way to go in Biology, that's not always the case. In our sessions not only will you receive an initial assessment of your skill, we will develop a system of study that is tailored to YOU - that will allow you to thrive and shine independently in any class or test. I love seeing my students master the material in a way that works for them and seeing the lightbulb that goes off once they see how cool or how easy the concept it!

Although I taught biology, I've had the opportunity to teach and tutor 7th and 8th graders taking Pre-Algebra, Algebra I as well as Geometry. In a past life, I worked at an after school program assisting 1st-5th graders with their homework- my focus being in math and science. I've also had the opportunity to help the elderly with their GEDs, particularly in Math, which covers basic arithmetic to geometry and statistics.

Graduating from Williams College in 2011 with my degree in Biology, focusing on microbiology and genomics, I did research with two professors during my junior and senior years. I taught 4th Grade General Science, 8th Grade Anatomy and Physiology and 9th grade General Biology at a PreK-12 independent school in Downtown Brooklyn for five years.

With open and honest communication during the tutoring process, I see no reason why a student can't succeed with my help! Whether one is eager to get a head start on your study of biology or in need of one or two concepts cleared up,

I had the opportunity to the a number of courses in college, including Genetics as well as Genomics, Transcriptomics and Proteomics. These classes gave me the chance to do research studying cell cycle regulation in yeast and ectotype genomics in cyanobacteria.

True mastery of the work!

Charlene is able to comprehensively interpret/teach the subject to students that allows them to gain mastery of the subject as she does. Very patient and thorough. Excellent tutoring skills!

Nice and patient tutor!

Charlene helped my daughter with Biology. Just only two sessions with Charlene and it helped get my daughters grade move up from a B- to a B. We highly recommend her. I am sure with Charlene’s help her grade would continue to improve.

Biology at it's best!

Charlene was a wonderful tutor! She assisted my daughter with preparing for her biology final. She has the ability to teach biology in an engaging manner that helped my daughter pull the concepts together. Charlene was diligent and patient in re-teaching and reviewing an entire year's worth of biology. My daughter learned the concepts and was able to tackle her final exam successfully! Charlene responded to the initial request promptly and was accommodating with the tight study schedule in preparation for the final exam. She was always on time and stayed until the topics were learned! Thank you Charlene!
