Rutgers New Brunswick (Physics)
Physical Science teacher at Hunter College High School. (8th graders)
2 years of experience teaching high school science in NJ, teaching chemistry, physics, and earth science.
I received a BA in Physics from Rutgers New Brunswick January 2013. However, music and English are interests and skills that I've invested considerable amounts of time into. In college, I started a book club and joined the literary magazine, contributing poems. I've blogged for years.
As for piano, I took 10 years of classical piano lessons from the age of 6. Playing for adults and children in church helped hone my skills, and playing covers for elderly folk in nursing homes broadened my sense of audience and style.
Last but not least, science - I was in the pharmacy program before switching to physics, so I have a thorough appreciation of the descriptive power of science.
I've taught mostly beginners in my three years of piano teaching experience, but I'm looking for a challenge. My Diploma in Piano Performance from the ABRSM(an international testing agency) prepared me for more advanced students. I expect real interest from my piano students.
I lead students through an essay/reading the way I lead students through a song - step by step with the student re-doing segments slowly with my help, but I will baby them as little as possible.
I lead students through science questions/problems differently - I work hard to prepare relevant and accessible examples to make the learning as natural as possible. I consider science tutoring a type of translation. Physical Science teacher at Hunter College High School. (8th graders)

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam.
