About Connor


Bio

I have a passion for teaching and learning, and I do my best to engage students in the material. In my full time job I am a chemistry, AP Chemistry, and engineering teacher. I approach teaching with a fun, upbeat spin, and am very patient with those who may not get it on the first try. I also coach volleyball and track and field, and am very interested in helping students grow athletically as well - I was a Division III All American in track and field and in 2014 went to nationals for NCAA...

I have a passion for teaching and learning, and I do my best to engage students in the material. In my full time job I am a chemistry, AP Chemistry, and engineering teacher. I approach teaching with a fun, upbeat spin, and am very patient with those who may not get it on the first try. I also coach volleyball and track and field, and am very interested in helping students grow athletically as well - I was a Division III All American in track and field and in 2014 went to nationals for NCAA Division II in the hammer throw. Music is another one of my passions - I sang in an a cappella group all 4 of college. I earned my bachelor of science degree in Chemical Engineering from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, and an M.S. in Science Education with a concentration in chemistry from Florida Institute of Technology. Please contact me if interested!

Just fantastic!

My son was having a lot of difficulty with his AP Chemistry class. We are thrilled to have found Connor. She has been amazing with him and after 3 sessions he is feeling so much more confident and his comprehension has gone up tremendously. We are going to continue with Connor and I highly recommend her. She is patient and extremely knowledgeable. My son really enjoys how she explains things to make it more clear for him to understand and apply. Thank you Connor!

super tutor

Knowledgeable, patient and connects with high school kids enabling them to learn. Our son didn’t even have a lesson plan yet so she just started going over things our son needed to understand. Connor is most highly recommended!

Knowledgeable and effective tutor

My daughter says she learns from one session with Connor that she does from weeks with her teacher at school. Connor is not only knowledgeble but also can explain the material very effectively. In just two sessions my daughter's confidence level in chemistry has risen tremendously.

Great Teacher!

Connor is an excellent tutor! She has an excellent teaching style. Very patient and she takes the time and breaks the material down that made it very easy for my high school son to understand the concepts.

Amazing results

In just three weeks we have seen amazing results with Connor as a tutor for our daughter taking the IB Chemistry. Connor has excellent skills, is a very nice person and makes sure what she is teaching is understood. She is great and we are going to recommend her to anyone.
