About Gerry

Science and math can be very intimidating for many, many people. Respecting the varied learning styles is key in bridging the gap between an abstract concept and the experience of the student. This takes patient, experienced guidance.

If you would like a highly effective, personable, patient, person with an ability to explain abstract material in a clear way then perhaps I can help. I have 10+ years in NYC and Long Island high school, junior high school, and college settings preparing students for state physics, chemistry, and mathematics exams. In addition, I have several years of experience in the corporate world as an actuarial analyst which gives me yet another angle to share with students on how math can help in business as well as in science

I have a Bachelor of Science in Physics from Binghamton University and am pursuing a Master of Science in Secondary Education at Queens College (two classes away). I began tutoring AP Calculus and Chemistry as a student in high school where I received very positive feedback from fellow students who encouraged me to pursue a career in teaching. During high school I was admitted into the Pre-Med Program and graduated with distinction. In college, I was a physics laboratory teaching assistant and also was a member of the Junior Upstate Mentoring Program (JUMP Nation) where I provided encouragement / inspiration to NYC at-risk youth by doing some "Fun in Physics" demonstrations.

If you are interested I look forward to sharing more of my experience with you and help you succeed at your math, physics, and / or chemistry challenges.
