About Alexandra

Hi! Thanks for reaching out. I teach Regents Earth Science and Intermediate Level Science to middle school students in Westchester, NY. I have been teaching science for 5 years and love what I do! In my classroom I use a lot of hands on learning, group work and technology. Students seem to really enjoy the class, whether or not they have a love for science. It is my goal to make all of my students become curious about nature. I think it is a really valuable tool not to know all of the answers of how things on Earth work, but rather to know where to go to find out. I commend you for seeking out the help to be the best science student you can be.

I know it sounds cliche, but I love watching a student's expression when something "clicks" and being a part of that process is really meaningful to me. I am a visual learner and patient teacher who has built an extensive website with great resources to help prepare for the Earth Science Regents. I'd love to work with you to help you achieve your goal.

Astronomy, Geology, Meteorology (weather), Basic chemistry, physics and living environment

Over the past 3 years, I have taught 160 students and they ALL sat for the Earth Science Regents. Of those students, all but 5 passed. Last year, all students passed and 75% of those students achieved mastery (85% or higher). I have reviewed almost every regents exam there is and have seen most questions and can help you break them down into something that makes sense.

I played NCAA lacrosse at SUNY New Paltz (D-3) and have helped out with the varsity and JV programs at White Plains. Additionally, I coach modified lacrosse for girls.

Please do not hesitate to contact me. I'd love to be a part of your year as you prepare for the Earth Science Regents or Intermediate Science exam. Whether your goal is to achieve mastery (85% or higher) or just pass the test, I'm sure I can work with you to give you the skills and strategies to get you there.

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.

Geology

NYS Professional Certificate- Secondary Ed: Earth Science

Lacrosse

I grew up playing lacrosse and played NCAA Division 3 at SUNY New Paltz. I coach at the modified level and have worked with varsity and JV for a number of years. I am up to date with current rules and beneficial drills to get you where you want to be.

Physical Science

I have taught an intermediate science curriculum for four years. I am familiar with concepts and state test questions presented in the physical science curriculum.

Regents

This is my 5th year teaching Regents Earth Science. I am very comfortable with the curriculum and extremely familiar with how the Regents asks questions about such topics. When it comes to my class, I only use Regents questions and my students learn how to break them down to get to the content. Last year, all of my students (55) passed the regents and 75% achieved mastery (85% or higher).
