About Carolyn


Bio

I have a minor in biology from Virginia Commonwealth University, and a Master of Public Health in environmental health sciences and toxicology from Columbia University. I have tutored chemistry, biology, and physics for over a year on a different tutoring service. I also have classroom experience in chemistry, as I worked as a teaching assistant for college-level chemistry and a graduate teaching assistant for a chemistry and biology-focused course at Columbia University.

I have a minor in biology from Virginia Commonwealth University, and a Master of Public Health in environmental health sciences and toxicology from Columbia University. I have tutored chemistry, biology, and physics for over a year on a different tutoring service. I also have classroom experience in chemistry, as I worked as a teaching assistant for college-level chemistry and a graduate teaching assistant for a chemistry and biology-focused course at Columbia University.

My favorite part of tutoring is helping students gain confidence in science. My educational philosophy is focused on scaffolding (building concepts piece by piece). By first reviewing information students have learned previously, I break down concepts and problems into a series of easily understood ideas or operations. This method has helped many of my students who were initially failing high school or college level chemistry earn grades of B+ in their chemistry courses. It has proven equally successful when applied to physics and biology. I hope to help you succeed in science as well!

I get to know my students' strengths and weaknesses at the beginning of tutoring so that I can introduce new content in a way that helps strengthen weak areas and build upon strengths. I also break concepts down into easily-understood chunks by beginning with relevant information that students already know and then building on this information. This step-by-step method helps students solve even the hardest problems with confidence. As someone who struggled with science in high school, I know how frustrating it can be when you have no idea what the question is asking or where to begin. My step-by-step approach eliminates the frustration and helps students quickly master course content.

I would be happy to tutor you in Regents-level physics, Regents-level, AP, or college-level chemistry, and Regents-level, AP , or college-level biology. If you have questions or would like to know more, please reach out! I am fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and would be h
