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. ...
