About Juan

I have more than thirteen years of tutoring experience. I have taught middle school science, Regents Chemistry, and Regents Physics. Tutoring allows teaching tailored to individual student's needs. Some students are global thinkers and others are detail oriented. Students bring a variety of math and analytical skills. Addressing each student's needs allows me to help each student learn and improve their grades.

Most of my tutoring experience has been as a chemistry tutor at Suffolk County Community College. Students of all ages come in with a range of science literacy, math abilities, and life experiences. I quickly determine each student's strengths and weaknesses. I work with each student to build an understanding of basic principles and terminology while applying strategies to solve each type of problem you'll encounter. I apply these skills for students from middle school through college.

I taught Regents Chemistry for two years and Regents Physics for three years. Beyond the just knowing the material, students must learn to analyze what each question is asking: what information is needed, which problem solving strategies will be useful for different questions. Being familiar with the NYS Regents, I know how to help students tie scientific concepts with the wording of the questions.

Each session will focus on a small number of skills with homework to practice. Homework will be reviewed at the following session.

I am available for in-person sessions weekends, evenings, and two weekday daytime hours. I will travel to a nearby library or student's home. My base rate is $80/hour. Discounts are available for referrals – contact me for details.

I look forward to hearing from you and helping you achieve your goals!

en as a chemistry tutor at Suffolk County Community College. Students of all ages come in with a range of science literacy, math abilities, and life experiences. I taught Regents Chemistry for two years and Regents Physics for three years. I have tutored students in both since 2005.
