I hold permanent New York State certification in Chemistry. I have been teaching and tutoring this subject for more than 5 years. My teaching style is to make difficult concepts in Chemistry easier by using every day connections of the student's world. This educational philosophy promotes a positive and engaging learning experience. I also employ standard methods such as worksheets and textbook problems as well as successful strategies to achieve higher scores on the Chemistry Regents Exam.

My rates are dependent on the course. Regents Chem is $50/hr, Honors Chem is $55/hr, first yr Chem is $60/hr. Depending on the mileage, I will add a $10-20 surcharge for travel expense.
Joe really helped my son, Ryan, understand what his Chemistry teacher has been trying to teach him. He has a great way to make Ryan understand the work. He went into his 1st test with more understanding than he has all year, after only 2 hours of tutoring. We'll see the outcome, hopefully, this week. Thank you Joe.
Mr T was an awesome tutor for my son. My son was really struggling and after working with Mr T he got excellent grades on his tests. He is extremely knowledgeable and patient and knows how to convey the material in a timely and understandable manner. We will be working with him again in the spring to prepare for the regents. He is a must have tutor!
I highly recommend Mr. T. as a chemistry tutor. He was always accessible and very well prepared for each lesson. He assessed my son's needs so that he could begin at my son's entry point. Mr. T. solidified my son's base of knowledge so that he was able to make connections to new concepts. Mr. T. met with us on the first day and explained his plan of action and this helped for all of us to be on the same page. My son responded well to his style. Mr. T. helped my son gain his confidence and achieve success.
Mr T is an outstanding teacher. he is astute, attentive and has insight into child's needs. He is patient and displays sensitivity towards my daughters difficulties. He is prompt and easy to reach, very responsive and also accommodating with schedule changes. We are having a wonderful experience with Mr T!
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.
