About Dawn

I love teaching and tutoring science! I find it fascinating and love sharing my knowledge with others. I taught high school biology for 6 1/2 years. I am certified to teach grades 7-12 and have a Bachelors Degree in Biology and MA in biology education. I have a very hands-on approach to learning and love to work with students of all ages. I believe in helping teach students science by relating it to real-life experiences. I have taught over 150 students each year and they had very high passing rates on the NY state regents Living Environment exam. I have taught grades 9-12 and have tutored all ages as well. I would love to help you excel in science! I have 4 children of my own and just love the look on their faces when they learn something new. I am very patient and love finding new ways for children to understand a topic- I'm full of mnemonic devices and new ways to help boost your memory! I have also spent the past three years assisting in my daughters preschool classes and working with children ages 2-5 and serving as the administrator of the preschool.

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.

Anatomy

Each year in my classes I have taught a one month unit on Anatomy. I have taken many college courses on it and am able to tutor in that area.

Biology

I have a BS in biology and a MA in biology education. I also taught biology for over 6 years and have tutored this subject before.

Ecology

In college, at Pennsylvania State University, I majored in biology specializing in both ecology and genetics. I took extra coursework in ecology and have taught this subject to high school classes before.

Elementary Science

I have a teaching degree in biology and general science grades 7-12. I have taken many science courses in both college and graduate school in this area.

Genetics

While I received by BA in biology at Penn State we were required in our last 2 years to pick a specialty in biology - mine was genetics. So, I took extra classes in genetics. I also have taught genetics in my Living Environment teaching curriculum for over 6.5 years. I also attended a summer research institute training program at NYU in genetics.

Microbiology

I taught a science research program for 3 years. For 4 months out of each year I performed a microbiology unit with my students.

Physiology

I have taken any received "A's" in both undergrad and graduate school in physiology courses. I have also taught this topic within my biology classes.

Zoology

I have a BA in biology, which includes classes in zoology and a MA in Biology Education. As a teacher I took "p" credits to advance my career by taking zoology classes, 2 of which were zoology classes at the Bronx Zoo.

Very Knowledgeable

Dawn was extremely knowledgeable about high school biology and helped my son prepare for his final exam. It is very apparent she has a lot experience teaching high school students. I found her to be very patient and covered all the material very thoroughly. She is a delightful and thoughtful tutor.
