I am an experienced tutor who is available to work with students either one-on-one or in small groups. I take a personal interest in each student's progress and tailor the lessons according to the needs of the individual.

For TEAS Prep, I can assist you with all TEAS subjects, including math, reading, English, and science sections (scientific reasoning, life science, anatomy and physiology, and chemistry/physical science).
I live in Rochester, New York, and I have taught the TEAS prep course at Rochester Regional Health Care multiple times. In addition, I have successfully taught the TEAS prep course to individual students hundreds of times. My qualifications include a BA in English from the University of Rochester, as well as a BS in biology and DPM degree from Scholl College of Podiatric Medicine in Chicago. In the past, I have been a classroom teacher for math (algebra and geometry) in a local high school.

For SAT prep, I focus on strategies and test-taking skills, as well as practice and explanations with actual testing material. I am able to teach and review math skills and operations, as well as English grammar, vocabulary, and reading comprehension specific to the SAT. I can help students hone writing skills for the essay portion of the SAT exam.

In addition to SAT prep, I am an experienced math tutor for middle school math through Regents geometry. I have experience tutoring students with a variety of different learning styles. In addition to academics, I provide support and encouragement, emphasize strengths, and focus on creating a positive, fun learning experience. I hold a B.A. in English from the University of Rochester, as well as a B.S. in Biology and D.P.M. medical degree from Scholl College in Chicago.

Test Preparation

Accuplacer,

Accuplacer

I have been teaching and tutoring math, reading, and English for over 6 years, including preparing students for the Accuplacer test. I currently teach high school algebra and can help students prepare for all math levels for the Accuplacer, including high school algebra and geometry, as needed. In addition to holding a university degree in English, I have been preparing students for the TEAS, SAT and ACT tests for over six years, and I am proficient in all areas of reading and writing preparation.
TEAS,

TEAS

The TEAS exam (Test of Essential Academic Skills) is an admissions test for nursing school. It includes tests of reading, English, math, and science. I have experience tutoring both the TEAS and the TABE (a different nursing school admissions test) which is similar to the TEAS albeit less challenging. Not only am I an experienced math tutor (algebra, geometry, and SAT/ACT prep), I hold a BA in English from the University of Rochester and BS Biology and DPM (Doctor of Podiatric Medicine) degrees from Scholl College in Chicago. My educational background includes an entire spectrum of college-level biology and chemistry courses in addition to the math and English courses.
