About Gloria

In my 44 years of educating students, I have worked in various situations teaching a variety of science and math courses. I have taught in both urban and rural secondary schools, Lakeland Community College nursing program chemistry, private tutoring as well as tutoring for homebound students from both Painesville and Riverside school districts, and working with college students. I have had success in alleviating fear of some of the higher level courses and my students have achieved success in their chosen fields. One young lady had almost a 4.0 GPA but always dropped chemistry. Her dream was to become a doctor; she needed more math and science courses. I worked with Kate for almost 2 years. She became the chemistry students of the year at CSU and has just completed her second year of med school this past June currently doing her clinicals at a Cleveland Clinic hospital.
I have always believed that education the is the way to achieve a successful life and be a productive member of society. My own five children have earned 5 bachelor degrees, 3 masters, 1 PhD in economics, graduation from medical school, and most recently completion of a fellowship at Harvard's Mass General Hospital.
Now as a retired teacher, I miss working with students - especially with the sciences and math. I need to use my knowledge as I am bored with retirement.

I understand math and have always had an easy time doing story problems and mathematical relationships as applied in chemistry and physics. I love doing problems and puzzles.

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.

ACT Math

My college major was chemistry with a math minor. I have always loved solving math problems and have achieved success in the various math courses that I have taken. In addition I have helped numerous students achieve success not only in the courses that I taught, but also standardized tests and college classes.

ACT Science

My college major was chemistry with a math minor. Upon graduation I worked in industrial lab situations. After two years, I was able to begin my teaching career of 40+ years. I taught chemistry, physics, general sciences, biology, and numerous math courses in both urban and rural high schools. I have many years of tutoring experience with students from 7th grade through college.

Algebra 1

I have taught algebra in numerous situations which include classroom, summer school, and private tutoring. I love math and doing problems. I am probably one of the few people who look forward to solving mathematical relationships.

Algebra 2

As a college student I majored in chemistry and minored in math. I have always done well in math courses and have a passion for solving problems. My science background has trained me to solve various types of relationships related to chemistry and physics.

Chemistry

I majored in chemistry and minored in math at Ohio University. Upon graduation, I worked in both quality control and R & D labs in industrial jobs. After two years, I was able to begin a teaching career that included both rural and urban schools. I have taught chemistry, physics, biology, general and physical sciences along with numerous math courses.

Grammar

Although English was not my college major, I had an excellent foundation in my high school honors English classes. At one point, I did want to teach English, but I chose math and science courses for they offered more job opportunities. Since this is not my specialty, I will change my fee to only $30. In addition, if you feel that I was of no help after one session, I will not charge you for my time.

Physical Science

During my 40+ years of teaching, I have worked with high school students in chemistry, physics, biology, general sciences and various math courses. I have also taught chemistry lab for nursing students at Lakeland. My tutoring experience includes helping students in various high schools as well as some college students. Although my college major was chemistry with a math minor, I have taught many different classes.

Prealgebra

I taught high school math and science courses for over 40 years. I worked not only with secondary students, but also college students to help them get through their coursework. In addition, I tutored a variety of courses to many students who were homebound due to illness or students who were struggling in their classes.

PSAT

I have assisted students in preparing for the PSAT numerous times. This review process has helped them achieve good test scores. Usually the math portion tends to bog students down during testing. But by reviewing previous math skills helps students achieve success on these tests.

SAT Math

I majored in chemistry with a math minor during my college training. I worked as a R & D chemist for two years prior to beginning my 45 years of teaching chemistry, physics, algebra, trig, biology, and other general science and math classes. I have also done extensive tutoring with students who seek help as well as some students who needed home schooling due to illness.
