Bio

I have taught college chemistry, AP chemistry, as well as Pre-AP chemistry and regular chemistry courses for more than 20 some years. In these many years the most important experience is that I have worked with all levels of students, and I know how to teach and help different types of students to be successful in chemistry classes.

I have taught college chemistry, AP chemistry, as well as Pre-AP chemistry and regular chemistry courses for more than 20 some years. In these many years the most important experience is that I have worked with all levels of students, and I know how to teach and help different types of students to be successful in chemistry classes. With Wyzant I was one of the top 10% tutors in 2019. Through Wyzant online lesson platform or face to face lessons, I have tutored many college students, AP chemistry students, high school chemistry students and home schooling students. Many students had great improvement after a time period of tutorials. Some even had a surprising grade improvement from a "F" to an "A" after tutorials plus his/her hard work. It is a true reward and a pleasure to see students having a great improvement and doing well in their chemistry classes.

Chemistry

I had worked at colleges and high schools in teaching college chemistry, AP chemistry, as well as Pre-AP chemistry and regular chemistry courses for 25 years. In one of the recent years my AP chemistry students 100% passed AP chemistry exam, and in general my students have had about 85% of AP exam passing rates yearly, while my Pre-AP and regular chemistry students at 85-90% of passing rates consistently in district's assessment tests yearly. Prior to high school teaching career, I taught college chemistry at community colleges for some years, and laboratory courses in the department of chemical engineering of a university for some years.

A serious and hands on tutor

Nina is a dedicated, patient and motivated tutor. We appreciate her anticipation and preparation of the lessons. Our son managed to get some great grades, thanks to her continuous support and effective teaching methods. She is a very committed and punctual tutor. I would definitely recommend her.

Excellent Honors Chemistry tutor!

Nina has been meeting with my daughter for several weeks now to supplement dd's honors chem class. Nina is kind, thorough, and always prepared. She has been an excellent chemistry resource as she is knowledgeable and flexible enough to be able to thoroughly explain any questions or topics that dd's class covered that week. Highly recommended!

Nina is wonderful and patient

Nina worked with my daughter to prepare for a make up exam in Chemistry. My daughter has struggled most of the year, and it was awesome seeing her finally connect the dots with Nina's help. I highly recommend her!

Awesome teacher!! She really helps you understand the concepts

Nina has helped me with AP Chemistry. She knows the subject at an expert level and is willing to answer many questions. She has a determination that not many tutors have and is an excellent teacher!!

Beka, 14 lessons with Nina

Knowledgeable and patient

Went over Intermolecular Force (IMF) and Solid units PowerPoint notes. Distinguished inter-and intra-molecular forces, discussed three types of intermolecular forces as hydrogen bond, dipole-dipole force, and London dispersion forces. Discussed these three types of IMF affect to the physical properties. Explained the difference of n-type semiconductor and p-type semiconductor. Summarized four types of bonds in the solids and compared the strengths of four.

Actually cares for her students

Nina was wonderful and so nice and helpful. I had a hard time passing my chem 2 tests and with Nina’s help I finally passed with a B! I could’ve gotten an A if I studied sooner too.

Maria, 6 lessons with Nina

Patient tutor who wants to really help us.

Today was my first class with Nina, and she helped me a lot. I am so happy that I have a great tutor like her. She helped me to learn everything that will come out in my exam and at the end of the class I was comfortable with chemistry more.
