About Claudia


Bio

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.

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.

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.

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

She is great at explaining topics. She keeps encouraging our daughter and it’s definitely helping her a lot. We are hopeful that her interest and understanding in chemistry will grow. Thanks Claudia!

Chemistry - high school

Claudia is a great high chemistry tutor. I have had tutors in the past who teach for the money. Claudia is different - you can tell she loves Chemistry and takes the time to explain the concepts even when reviewing past multiple choice tests. I signed up for more tutoring already. Claudia is a great tutor!

Amazing tutor

Before I met with Claudia, I had failed my first exam in General Chemistry I. Finding her was the best thing I ever did for my education. Claudia is patient, extremely knowledgeable, and eager to help. She went out of her way to send follow-up text messages of certain problems I needed extra practice on. She also was very flexible with meeting times. I am very thankful to have had Claudia to help with Chemistry and I highly recommend her for tutoring.

Great Tutor

My daughter has had several sessions with Claudia for her intro chem course at Lehigh. She is very positive about Claudia and relies on her a lot. Her grades have gone up since they began working together.

Fantastic

Claudia was fantasic. She was super helpful to my daughter. Very patient and informative. After Claudia left, I asked my daughter if she felt any better about the subject matter and she gave me a resounding "yes". We will definitely continue to utilize Claudia's expertise in the future.

very professional and great teaching strategies! Doing much better in Chemistry after only #2 tutoring sessions.

Claudia has been the best tutor for Chemistry. She has great patience and makes complicated situations sound much easier to understand.

Extremely knowledgable, experienced, and patient tutor

When I took general chemistry the first time around by myself, I did so poorly that I had to retake the course over the summer. I found Claudia and she brought me from an F to A! I was finally able to grasp the subject matter and apply the information and equations to problems all on my own. Not only did she teach me the skills to solve the problems and understand what I was learning, she gave me the confidence I was lacking and boosted my spirits, so that when It came time to take the exams, I no longer had anxiety or doubts. When it was time for me to take organic chemistry I continued to come home from school on weekends to see Claudia. I received an A in the first semester of orgo and I plan on receiving another A for my second semester. Claudia explains things deeper and shows me the steps to figuring out the problems and reactions that I would not be able to do on my own. Studying with Claudia is the best thing I've ever done for my education.

Made it simple

Claudia was quick to understand where my deficits were and was able to quickly communicate the necessary information in a simple and clear fashion. An excellent tutor.
