About Helena

Greetings! I am a graduate of CUNY Macaulay Honors College at Hunter College with a BA/MA in Adolescent Education in Physics. As the title states, I'm a certified high school physics teacher who also teaches chemistry. Many have asked why, and I told them that I love science and working as a mentor to the youth.

I was a tutor in high school for 3 years, helping underclassmen and peers in subjects such as math and science. After high school, I worked in a summer internship as an assistant math teacher in a summer camp for middle schoolers. I've also previously worked as an assistant chess teacher for elementary school children. And so, I've had experience working with the youth as young as 4 years old to as old as seniors in high school.

I am also a certified lifeguard, trained in CPR and First Aid. I've been a competitive swimmer from when I was 10 years old to my senior year of college. I stay involved with the sport as an assistant coach to my college team.

I consider myself an excellent student in math and science ever since my pre-high school days, but even as a college student, I feel I still have more to learn. In and out of the classroom, I'll be growing to become a more effective teacher. Don't be afraid to contact me if interested, and I'll respond as soon as possible. Take care!

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. 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.

Chemistry

I've tutored Chemistry as a volunteer tutor in high school and as a paid job in college. Now I'm a certified high school Physics teacher with a few years of experience teaching Physics and Chemistry.

Regents

I have previously tutored students in high school level subjects that require them to take the Regents exam at the end of the school year. I have also spent a year as a Student Teacher with a high school Physics class, which achieved an 80% pass rate on the Physics Regents.

Swimming

I've begun swimming lessons when I was 3 years old, but I didn't start competitive swimming until I was 11. Since then, I've been on my CYO team, my high school team, and now my college team. I consider myself knowledgeable in all 4 competitive strokes and in techniques such as diving starts, backstroke starts, open turns, flip turns for freestyle and backstroke. I've also taught 3 friends how to swim. Although they're not at my level yet in terms of speed, they've continued to practice what I've taught them and developed a whole new appreciation for the sport of swimming.
