About Celeste

I am certified to teach science in the 4th grade through 12th grade. I am completing my 4th year as a high school physics teacher. I specialize in helping students learn to learn in addition to mastering material.

I can break math problems down to the basics. I will walk you through as many problems as you need. I don't get annoyed, frustrated or condescending. It takes time and patience to learn.

I will make science interesting and fun to learn. I have a treasure trove of resources! My course work includes a wide range of biology, chemistry and physics courses including general biology, microbiology, molecular biology, general chemistry, organic chemistry, biochemistry, earth and space science and various applied physics courses.

I look forwarded to working with 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've tutored students in high school and college in algebra 1. I've also taught algebra based physics for 4 years so I can make the algebra represent physical quantities. I've found it is much easier to learn algebra if you can tie it to the real world. I understand learning math takes time and every student progresses at their own pace. I've never met a student that couldn't learn algebra given time and a patient tutor.

Biology

I've received a biotechnology degree from Rutgers University with a 3.8 GPA. My course work includes general biology, microbiology, and lab and lecture courses in applied molecular biology.

Physics

I'm concluding my 4th year as an 11th grade physics teacher. Physics is a very physical science so I maximize student mastery by tying problem solving to relatable real world experience. I bring a treasure trove of resources in order to differentiate instruction to accommodate student learning styles and skill level.

Python

I've taken a 3 credit hours course in python programming and studied it independently for 2 years. I made a 101 in the course and the professor requested I tutor other students in class.

Help for Algebra

We liked that Celeste takes the time to explain. After only 2 sessions my daughter received her first 92% on her algebra test and her confidence has gone up. We are very grateful that we found her. She's a great tutor!
