About Heather

I have a Master's degree from Nazareth College of Rochester. For the past 15 years, I have worked with adolescents in a public high school setting, ten of those years working as a classroom teacher certified in New York State to teach biology (living environment), chemistry, and general science. I have taught Regents-level chemistry and biology classes, co-teaching biology to students with learning needs, teaching enriched classes for accelerated students, and helping at-risk, Regents level science students succeed in an alternative learning program. Regardless of setting or content, the students in my classes consistently meet or exceed their individual learning objectives as well as perform well on New York State Regents exams.

My goal for each of my students is to engage them as active participants in their own learning, forming a solid knowledge base before moving on to subsequent topics. You can expect frequent and ongoing communication regarding student progress toward his or her learning goals. As needed, I am also happy to liaise with other professionals (ex. classroom teachers) to assist a student toward academic success. I value your feedback at anytime as to how I can better assist a student in achieving his or her goals.

I will work with your schedule and also do my best to reschedule should you need to cancel a session. I am also happy to travel to a convenient location for each tutoring session. For adult learners, I know how hard it can be to juggle "life" with academic pursuits, and would be happy to help you navigate your journey. I look forward to hearing from you and assisting you or your student toward success.

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.

Biology

I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology, with a minor in Chemistry, from Bowling Green State University (1996), affording me collegiate level understands in the topics of both biology and chemistry. Further, I am professionally certified in New York state to teach Regents Biology, Regents Chemistry, and General Science (grades 7-12). Given my degree in Biology, along with my teacher certifications and over ten years experience teaching science courses to students of all backgrounds and levels, I am confident in my ability to help you reach your learning goals in the science course(s) in which you are currently enrolled.

Chemistry

When earning my Bachelor of Science degree in Biology, I also successfully completed a minor in Chemistry, from Bowling Green State University (1996). The volume of chemistry courses required for my chemistry minor afforded me a solid comprehension and understanding of the topics of chemistry at the collegiate level. Further, I am professionally certified in New York state to teach Regents Chemistry. Given my successful completion of the Bachelor of Science degree, along with my teacher certification and over ten years experience teaching science courses to students of all backgrounds and levels, I am confident in my ability to help you reach your learning goals in the chemistry course(s) in which you are currently enrolled.

Regents

I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology, with a minor in Chemistry, from Bowling Green State University (1996), affording me collegiate level understands in the topics of both biology and chemistry. Further, I am professionally certified in New York state to teach Regents Biology, Regents Chemistry, and General Science (grades 7-12). With these certifications, along with over ten years experience teaching science courses that end in New York Regents examinations, I have thorough knowledge of the curriculum covered in these exams as well as the format of the Regents Chemistry and Living Environment Exams.
