About Rosemary

Hello,
Rosemary D. is my "title"; and tutoring is my "task". I love learning, for it can be fun, and interesting, instead of tiring and tedious. The key to easier learning lies in making the subject applicable to life. For example: mathematics can be broken down into money or banking ideas. A heart attack in the family could serve as a catalyst to learn about the heart, and the circulatory system. I have seen these analogies work in the past.

My experience includes a Bachelor's Degree in Biological Science, from Empire State College; and my Master's in Secondary Science Education from Nazareth College. I have worked as a Substitute Teacher in City of Rochester Middle and High Schools; a permanent full-time position was hard to obtain. So I began tutoring at the Monroe Community College-Damon City Center Campus. This was a very rewarding experience, because I was fulfilling a huge need that existed amongst the students there. A need that I fulfilled. Lots of basic ideas/concepts were unknown to the student population, and Professors there didn't have the time for students, so the role as a Tutor was very important.
Government funding became low at MCC, so my position was eliminated. But it was an experience that I value. I have also previously tutored children of friends/relative in other situations. Although I am certified in Secondary Science, I have a deep background in Mathematics; especially Algebra, since this is where a great need existed.

My hobbies include reading, writing, traveling and shopping!!! Overall, I think that I am a fairly nice person, who happens to like kids as well.

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.

Prealgebra

I have tutored and taught Math at many levels, (local middle schools, and MCC). I have my Masters degree in Secondary Science, but I have come to like Math because I have worked in this field for so long.
