Hello! My name is Heather and I would love to be your tutor. Let me tell you about myself.

I have a Bachelor of Science in neuroscience from the University of Pittsburgh and a Master's degree in molecular biology and genetics from VCU. I love math and science and am certified on Wyzant to teach elementary math, algebra 1, algebra 2, biology, and chemistry. I enjoy teaching one-on-one because it allows me to give the student the time and attention they need to grasp and understand the concepts. It also puts the student in a calmer environment to really encourage the learning process without any social or peer pressure.

On a personal note, I am very friendly, I have 2 cats, and I love the outdoors! I look forward to meeting with you.

Knowledgeable and patient

She is very knowledgeable and her way of teaching is nice and all her answers are point to point right. So I prefer everybody to take her for science, she is perfect. I will give her 💯 and she is perfect.

Heather - Math Tutor

Heather is EXTREMELY knowledgeable and is able to engage with my daughter, keeping her interested while teaching her mathematics. Heather is genuine in that she cares about my daughter learning a solid foundation in math. I am very pleased with Heather!

Insightful tutoring individualized for the learner

Geometry has "clicked" for my daughter, after one lesson!!! My daughter has her academic confidence back. Thank you, Heather, we both look forward to seeing you! Heather is willing to be flexible for scheduling as well.

Excellent math and science tutor

My sophomore son says Heather is an excellent tutor and his grades confirm. It's a major perk for us that she can tutor in both algebra 2 and biology. They just adjust the session depending on what he needs for 90 mins. It's another perk that she will come to your house and has good options for times to meet. Highly recommended!

Final Exam Prep

I recently reached out to Heather for help prepping for an Algebra final. Her reply was prompt and she was happy to help. Heather was able to schedule me the very next day. She did a wonderful job reviewing the materials and explained everything clearly and concisely. I’ve always struggled with math and needed more clarification than the average student. Heather was very patient with me and went over the steps and formulas as many times as needed. She made me feel more confident in my abilities to solve equations I originally found difficult. I highly recommend Heather as a tutor. :)

Knowledgeable, kind and patient.

I hired Heather for my granddaughter who was struggling in Algebra 2. Heather went over past work with Denise to help her understand the work and get better quiz and test grades. We will continue to work with Heather to prepare for upcoming exams. Denise felt so much better after Heather left and was proud of herself. We look forward to our next lesson with her. Heather is very prompt and arrived at the time we discussed.

Awesome Teacher!!!

Heather is a great teacher, she’s very patient and understanding. She’s been able to explain things in ways that make it easier for me to understand. She’s been a tremendous help with my Algebra 2 class so far.

Heather took her time and was very patient. Being 1st lesson was nervous but worth it. She explained things well and asking questions for me to answer.Thanks for coming.
