About Nina

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 class. With WyzAnt I have tutored many college students, AP chemistry students, high school chemistry students and home schooling students. Many students had great improvement and got "A"s after tutorials and with their hard work. 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.

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 have 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 the year of 2014-15 my AP chemistry students 100% passed AP chemistry exam, and in my previous year 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 5 years, and laboratory courses in the department of chemical engineering of a university for 5 years.

Nina is an amazing tutor! She is always on time and very nice. She prepares ahead of time for sessions, so time is well spent. She knows what is important for certain topics and has a broad knowledge on the different topics. She was able to take 2 weeks of college chemistry, dealing specifically with bonding, and teach me everything I needed to know for my test in just a couple of hours. She makes
