About Claudia

Although I am currently a Senior Analytical Chemist, I was a high school certified chemistry teacher in Romania for four years, before coming to the United States. While working as a teacher, I also tutored a number of high school students in Inorganic Chemistry, Physical Chemistry, and especially Organic Chemistry, as well as in math. I had a lot of success with students considered to be at the lowest level of the class by their teachers. It turned out that a little one on one attention, as well as a lot of encouragement throughout the process gave unexpected results, and all of my students started growing before my eyes, and became more confident. They had improved their grades considerably, and some of them even went on to attend higher education schools. Two of my students who started from the very bottom, became very knowledgeable and capable to tutor themselves their classmates in the subject.
What helped me have those results with my students were a number of factors:
1. a very good understanding of the subject
2. trying to understand my students’ needs by trying to figure out what they do not understand, what they do not know
3. trying to explain everything in a way they can understand
4. a lot of patience and dedication
I am looking forward to start tutoring again, as I feel that I have a lot to give, and this process of giving is extremely satisfying and fulfilling.

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.

Chemistry

I can tutor General Chemistry and Organic Chemistry.

Organic Chemistry

I have a BS in Chemistry from University of Bucharst, Romania, as well as MS in Chemistry from Long Island University, where I have succesfully studied Inorganic Chemistry, Organic Chemistry, Physical Chemistry, Analytical Chemistry.
I have been a certified teacher in Romania, where I have been teaching Chemistry (inorganic chemistry, organic chemistry, physical chemistry, and analytical chemistry), before coming to the US.
I also tutored students in Organic Chemistry, for two years, helping them prepare their entrance exam to Medical School, or Nursing school.
Presently I am a successful Senior Analytical Chemist, working in Research and Development, in the Pharmaceutical industry, and my work is very interesting, and challenging.
I enjoy tutoring students in Chemistry, and I have had great success with my students in the past. That was because I have listened to their needs, and I always found a way put things in the way they were able to understand.
