About Connie


My name is Connie, and I graduated this May from Duke University with a B.S. in Biology and a minor in Chemistry. This year, I am teaching 9th and 10th grade Algebra I in the Bronx through an Americorps program while applying to medical school. I've tutored throughout high school and college and absolutely love working with children. Through WYZANT, I've tutored students in middle school coursework and SAT prep. As a part of my Science Days club in high school and college, I've conducted science experiments with kids to teach them about science and stimulate their interests in Biology, Chemistry, and Physics. I also served as a peer tutor at Duke and tutored intermediate Spanish. Finally, I was actively involved in a club on campus where members tutored local Hispanics to improve their literacy.

In high school, I took a total of 8 AP classes - AP Biology, AP Chemistry, AP Psychology, AP Calculus, AP Statistics, AP Government and Politics, AP US History, and AP European History, and earned scores of 4 or 5 on every one. I am an AP Scholar with Distinction and National Merit Scholarship Finalist. Furthermore, I have earned medals in Science Olympiad, National Spanish Exam, and various math competitions. At school, I was the co-president of the Accept the Greener Challenge club and taught Mandarin Seminar senior year. Furthermore, I was chosen to be a Biology Teaching Assistant.

I would be able to tutor in Biology or Chemistry, Math (middle or high school level), Introductory Statistics, Spanish (up to Spanish IV), Introductory Psychology, Introductory Sociology, or help with test preparation (SAT, SAT II, AP Exams).

I would absolutely love to tutor your child at your home, the library or another public place, or online, depending on your convenience. Also, my rates are flexible. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or are interested!

Approved subjects
