Why You Should Choose Me As Your Science Tutor.
My undergraduate studies were at Virginia Commonwealth University in 1987 with degrees in Biology, Chemistry and Math. I graduated from William and Mary with a MaED in Education in 1990 with endorsements in Biology, Chemistry, Earth Science, General Science II, and math up to and including Calculus. I then took classes at the University of Virginia at the Post Graduate level. In addition to my certifications I have 28 years of successful teaching to the Virginia SOL's.
I have received formal training as a teacher; and have an advanced degree in my subject field. I will come to your home or office, and I also offer live web classes at excellent rates. I am patient, well-organized, exigent and inventive. I am sensitive to the different learning styles of my students I provide students with my own carefully prepared study materials (for free) in addition to the texts we use.
Availability: I am available in Hampton Roads for in person classes Mondays thru Friday as well as on Saturday and Sunday. I am willing to do before school or after school tutoring.
Who studies with me: My student base includes high school and college students trying to raise their grades and/or prepare for standardized tests. All of my young students came to me struggling and are now getting A's. My youngest science genius is 10.
How web classes work: Web classes require a computer, a web cam and a fast (not dial up) connection. You will be amazed at how fun a web class can be! We speak via Skype (free download), and use the chat field as a blackboard. Homework assignments and links are passed back and forth with ease. You don't have to spend one second traveling to class, scheduling is easier, and it's priced right!
I invite you to email me with your questions and to talk about what you need.
Judith has provided examples of their subject expertise by answering 3 questions submitted by students on Wyzant’s Ask an Expert.
I highly recommend this teacher.
My daughter has been taught two courses by Judith, Biology and Chemistry. Judith is a very impressive teacher who combines kindness and patience with a thorough knowledge of both subjects. She provided comprehensive materials to teach the courses. My daughter came away with a good understanding of the two subjects and acquired two very good grades. Judith is always easy to reach and is prompt to respond to inquiries. She is also always on time for teaching sessions.Sarah, 45 lessons with Judith
Amazing tutor really helping me understand my material for Lifestyle Human Development. Her dialogue is incredible and the subject is like a second nature to herMelissa, 9 lessons with Judith
Knowlegeable and Patienct
We can't say enough good things about Judith. She has been tutoring my daughter for 2 months to get her ready for the ASVAB test( Military entrance test). Judith is patient and knows a ton of tricks for test taking, wish we had found her sooner for high school. My daughter enjoyed going to tutoring. Judith is also very flexible when it comes to scheduling and conflicts. If you are in need of a tutor for math and science she is the person you want.Debbie, 15 lessons with Judith
An excellent coach and wise counselor
I have benefited tremendously from Judith's support in organizing and scheduling my work. Her amiable style of communication makes it very easy for me to communicate my organizational challenges and seek her professional help in addressing them. In addition her flexibility to scheduling coaching sessions has been very helpful. As I am an out of state student, Judith even helped me out in commuting to Richmond to catch my bus to New York. It feels almost like having a family around. Thank you Judith for all your help!Hashim, 22 lessons with Judith
College Biology 101
My son loved working with Judith. He was very pleased with all the information that she had prepared and felt that they "connected". I am of course thrilled that he is excited and feels that he already understands the material much better. He is looking forward to working with Judith on a regular basis. Thank You!!Eric, 4 lessons with Judith
Light to our dark
I asked my son Stephen to write a review he simply said "She is the Best - done". As a parent when you know that your child has the knowledge to pass a class like AP Chemistry but yet they are failing; You know something is not right. The teaching structure is so important. Judith delivers a process that makes sense for all the parts and pieces to come together into one. Her passion and love for teaching is clearly the best I have experienced. We feel like we've known her forever. I cannot thank Judith enough for bringing light to our dark.Dorothy, 19 lessons with Judith

Judith is the perfect combination of patient and exacting with students. She motivates students and she helps them to see what it will take to bring up their grades. She's an excellent tutor and I highly recommend her.Jane, 8 lessons with Judith
Judith is reviewing multiplication facts with Micky and made him feel at ease. She's working on strengthening his basic math skills so he can feel more confident when solving a problem.Terin, 9 lessons with Judith
My name is Kayla and I go to public schools and I was barely passing Chemistry with a D and I needed to increase my grade fast. I found Judith W. and she was able to help me with everything I needed. She taught differently then my teacher did which helped me to understand in an easier way and she gave different examples till I understood the criteria. I used to fail almost every chapter test and with her I started making Bs on test and quizzes. When my semester grade came out I went from a D to a high B! I also passed the SOL.Kayla, 12 lessons with Judith
