About Chelsea

Presentation, Practice and Production! These are the 3 P's of learning that I like to abide by in my teaching. A good tutor is someone who can explain, clarify and guide students through material; one who will give students a chance to practice, practice, practice what they've learned, and one who will lead students to producing their own work and results!

My name is Chelsea, and I'm someone who has decided to pursue teaching as a career. I'm a graduate of Cornell University, where I studied Food science (a blend of chemistry, engineering, and microbiology as it pertains to food safety, packaging, and the creation of new and healthier food products).

After graduation, I moved to Japan and spent 2.5 years teaching English to toddlers, elementary school students, junior high school students, and adults. I learned how to explain, clarify and check for understanding in students who didn't understand English, and how to create lessons geared towards all age groups.

I've tutored numerous students in multiple subjects: high school students in algebra and geometry classes, student athletes in calculus classes, adults in math and science prep for the Praxis and ACT tests, toddlers in basic math and writing skills, and both children and adults in English as a second language.


At the moment, I am employed as a middle school math teacher, and hold a dual-certification to teach both math and chemistry. I have taught algebra in a public high school in the state of Mississippi for two years, and am familiar with Common Core. I am now located in Oregon, teaching both math and science.

I look forward to hearing from you!

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.

Algebra 1

I am currently a certified math teacher; I teach high school algebra and am familiar with Common Core. I received a perfect score on the math section of my Praxis test, and have been tutoring students in different math subjects including algebra, ACT math, Praxis math and college-level calculus for years.

Common Core

I am familiar with Common Core and have been teaching Algebra and 6th grade math in two different states, both with the the Common Core objectives, for a total of 3 years. I am familiar with the standards and objectives, as well as test preparation.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am a Cornell University graduate (food science major) who passed the Praxis core exam with perfect scores in the math and reading sections, and a near-perfect score in the writing section (190/200). I have tutored 2 and 3 year olds in basic math, writing and phonics. I have taught elementary school and junior high school students English as a second language in Japan, so I am familiar with breaking down concepts so they are easy to understand. I am getting certified to teach chemistry in the US, having passed my chemistry Praxis exam as well. I believe I am well-qualified to teach k-6th grade subjects given my previous experience teaching children and aptitude in the math, reading, writing and science subject matters.

ESL/ESOL

I have taught English as a second language in Japan for 2.5 years. I have taught toddlers, elementary, middle school, and high school students, as well as adults. I have also taught ESOL in New York City as a substitute at St.John's University.

I also have a CELTA certification ("B" rank, which 1 out of 4 CELTA graduates receive).

Geometry

I have been a geometry tutor for over a year, and have been teaching algebra (many concepts of which are integral in geometry) for over two years. My praxis scores demonstrate a proficiency in math content knowledge as well.

Reading

Having taught English as a second language to elementary and middle school students in Japan, so I am familiar with starting from the ground up. I have helped students with phonics, alphabet recognition, and word memorization. I have drilled and practiced skim reading, scan reading, and reading for comprehension exercises with students, all of which are very important in daily life.



I love to read for fun, but am also proficient in reading texts for comprehension in a timed setting. I achieved a perfect score in the reading section of my Praxis core exam.

Study Skills

I have taken many tests throughout my career as a student, most notably the SATs, ACTs, SAT II's, Praxis Core, Praxis II, Regents and AP exams. As a high school and college student at Cornell University, I took many quizzes, midterms and final exams.

Most recently, I studied for the Praxis Core in January 2014, and achieved perfect scores on the Praxis math and reading exams, and a near perfect score in the writing exam (190/200). In short, I know how to study well.
