About Amelia

I am a pharmacy student with a passion for science and education. Before starting pharmacy school I attended Brandeis University where I took a liberal arts curriculum and pre-med courses. I started working in a pharmacy and was then motivated to pursue a career in pharmacy instead of medicine. I transferred to Albany College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences and have been happily pursuing my doctorate in Pharmacy and MBA since then. I will graduate an MBA in health care management in Dec 2016 and with a Doctor of Pharmacy in May 2017.

I believe that students learn best when they are excited about a subject and are best motivated by positive reinforcement. I incorporate my passion and excitement for learning into my tutoring. I delight in planning lessons and activities related to educational concepts in order to engage students.

I have experience working with elementary through college level students. My expertise is in chemistry, biology, pharmacology, business and math. I also work with students on writing, reading, history and language arts. I tailor lessons to each student's ability level, interests and individual learning style regardless of grade level or subject.

I tutor pharmacy students through programs in my school and have worked with pre-med students, medical students and nursing students. I have also worked with test prep students for SAT, ACT, PCAT and TEAS.

I look forward to helping you or your child to excel!

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.

Algebra 1

Algebra I is a critical subject for students to begin honing their algebra skills in preparation for future, more complicated math classes. In Algebra I students become acquainted with common mathematical symbols, concepts and ways of thought. Algebra I can be a really exciting course as students begin to understand the way math can really effect the world around them!

Biostatistics

As a PharmD. student in my final year of classes and an MBA Health Care student in my final semester I have taken a variety of epidemiology and health statistics courses. I have achieved a grade of A or B+ in all of these courses and can confidently tutor a student in statistics, biostatistics, epidemiology and health care policy courses.

Business

I am an MBA Health Care student with only 1 week of classes remaining. As I have nearly completed this degree with a GPA of 3.8 I feel that I am qualified to tutor business courses.

Chemistry

As a pharmacy student, chemistry is at the core of everything I have studied. My passion for science combined with my depth and breadth of knowledge provides me a broad context from which I can assist students of all levels. I believe in providing examples, teaching topics in a variety of different ways to suit each students unique learning style, and making science fun.

Microbiology

I have taken a general microbiology course at Albany College of Pharmacy as well as Bacterial Pathogenosis which focuses on the virulence mechanisms and pathogenicity of bacteria as well as the host mechanisms of defense against bacteria. I am experienced with working in a lab. I am extremely comfortable with the subject material.

Nutrition

I have finished the didactic portion of pharmacy school which includes a module in Nutrition and gastrointestinal health. As someone who is educated in health care I feel qualified to assist in any level nutrition course.

Organic Chemistry

I am a third year pharmacy student, and I have taken and passed Organic Chemistry I and II with lab. I have successfully proceeded through the program applying organic chemistry in courses such as biochemistry and pharmaceutics.

Pharmacology

I am a fifth year PharmD. student (final didactic year of the doctorate in pharmacy program). The curriculum I am about to complete includes extensive work in medicinal chemistry, pharmacology, therapeutics, and pathophysiology.

Regents

I graduated with an advanced Regents diploma in 2008. I pursued undergraduate work in neuroscience and now pursuing a PharmD.

Study Skills

As a CRLA Level 1 certified tutor I have taken a variety of workshops related to study skills and training students in maximizing their study time and tailoring their studying to their unique learning styles.

TEAS

As a third year pharmacy student, I am proficient in all of the math and science skills tested on this exam. Furthermore, after scoring in the 99th percentile in the reading and writing sections of the PCAT exam, I am also qualified to work with students on the reading and English portions of the TEAS.

A great help — Amelia provided me with the proper guidance to solve problems regarding thermodynamics. She helps me feel confident in myself and the work I am doing and gives great real life examples that are applicable to the problem(s) at hand. I look forward to meeting with her more often to improve my chemistry grade. Thanks Amelia :). ...
