About Helena

Greetings! I am currently a senior in CUNY Macaulay Honors College at Hunter College, pursuing a BA/MA in Adolescent Education in Physics. As the title states, I'm studying to become a high school physics teacher. 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 can also provide lessons in swimming as I started swimming at the early age of 3. I didn't start competitive swimming until I was 11, but I've continued it on my high school team and currently on the Hunter College Women's Swimming Team. I'm knowledgeable in all 4 strokes, along with diving starts and flip turns. I am also a certified lifeguard, trained in CPR and First Aid.

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 shoot me an e-mail 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.

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.
