About Bonnie

I accomplished my Master's of Science from the University of Pennsylvania and my English/German degree from NYU through the application of successful test-taking and study skills techniques. As your tutor, I can pass these techniques along to you and help you achieve your dreams.

I have lived in England and Germany and can help students with the grammar and syntax/writing in European college applications. I can provide tutoring and document editing in both US and UK English. I have also tutored English in Germany and tutored students of all ages in reading and writing, including dyslexic students.

My greatest strength is that I pay attention to how my students learn and I tailor my teaching method so they get the most out of each lesson. I empower my students by showing them how they learn and enable them to regain confidence in their work so that they eventually no longer need my help!

I have sound experience in proofreading and writing gained through publication in academic journals and books, as well as writing classes.

I have also used Word, PowerPoint, and Excel throughout my Master's and have attended university level Excel training courses in pivot tables, data analysis, charts and more.

I am great at helping students improve their scores in the SAT's and I keep up to date on new testing strategies. I did well on these tests and can pass that talent onto my students.

I have also completed many Bachelor's and Master's level courses in all the major science subjects.

I can't wait to help you achieve your goals-- I will figure out ways to make learning fun for you which let you use your strengths to succeed! Bonnie

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

Algebra 1 is downright fun! Learn how much you already know about algebraic thinking and reasoning in your everyday life. Learn to apply your natural curiosity and logic to this exciting math subject. Getting good at algebra will truly get you further in life. Let me help!

I took chemistry courses at NYU and courses and as part of my Master's in Science at the University of Pennsylvania.

Women are great elementary math teachers! We are patient, understanding, and able to pick up on how a student learns best and to accommodate those learning styles in lessons.

I am a natural at this subject and, with my help, your child will become a natural, too!

Elementary Science is where it all begins; when our children learn to explore, catalog, and develop an understanding of science. I will make sure your child has fun and learns with pride. Let's start today!

I can explain the details of English grammar and linguistics (including the parts of speech and their rules.) I also help my students attain perfect pronunciation. Message me now-I'd love to help you achieve perfect English and attain your goals!

Geology

I have taken over 12 geology courses at Bachelor's and Master's level, including practical fieldwork and mapping courses in the US and Europe. I have also taken multidisciplinary courses that span physics, biology, chemistry, hydrology, and GIS. Let me share my passion for the earth sciences with you; you'll get the excitement and motivation to excel at geology with me as your tutor! It is truly a fantastic subject with something for everyone!

Finally, I can coach you in appropriate speaking grammar and techniques for interviews. Let's get you speaking fluently and confidently!

Literature

I can teach you everything you need to know! As an English and American Literature undergraduate at NYU I am familiar with many novels and texts. I can help you grapple with these texts and help you plan your assignments with great success.

If English is not your first language, you may wish to improve your English Literature knowledge in order to achieve working familiarity. We can design fun reading exercises and activities in English Lit to help you become confident and proficient in English!

Prealgebra

Prealgebra is really important because it prepares students for a new discipline and a new way of working with numbers and logic. I can demystify algebra for students by relating it to everyday situations, using fun and easy to understand examples. Help your child feel good about math and to get a great head start!

Proofreading

It's smart to get a second pair of eyes to look at your work; it can make the difference between merely getting the job done and making a fantastic impression!

Spelling

I am a terrific speller and, with my help, your child will be, too! I pay attention to how my students learn and I adopt a successful approach to help them remember the correct spelling for words.

The English language is a blend of Germanic and Romance languages, therefore English seems to operate under more than one set of rules for spelling and pronunciation. I can help non-native English speakers learn English and make a great impression in their written and verbal communication.
