I help students understand chemistry in a way that teachers often can't. My enthusiasm for the subject is contagious and many students have actually found chemistry to be fun and interesting after meeting with me. I love what I do and it comes through in my work.
I am currently expanding my company, working with experts who love to teach their subjects as much as I do. Now we can help more students find success and enjoyment in learning.
Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new student?
I like to meet up with students for a short session for free to see if we work well together. If the student feels comfortable with me and believes I can help, we set up a formal tutoring session. Otherwise, no harm done.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I graduated as the valedictorian from Kean University in 2020 and I am currently working toward a PhD in chemistry at Rutgers in New Brunswick. I've done very well in all of my chemistry related classes and tutored chemistry at Kean for 2 years. I have successfully tutored high school chemistry, general chemistry and organic chemistry as well. I currently work as the graduate student tutor for a Rutgers University program, tutoring around 15 hours per week. Before returning to school I worked as a paramedic for 12 years, as well as a CPR instructor for 5.
Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.
I charge $60/hour after the first 30 minute trial session. If multiple hours are needed at one time (i.e. exam prep), I charge less per hour. Online tutoring is available as well.
How did you get started teaching?
I began teaching CPR about 8 years ago. When I returned to school, I found that I was very good at helping my fellow students understand whatever material we were learning. I was asked to become a campus tutor, specifically for chemistry, where many students struggled. My sessions were always fully booked, and my students saw significant improvement in their grades.
What types of students have you worked with?
I have tutored both high school and college level chemistry students. I work with students from all backgrounds, and am a tutor for a program specifically meant to help students from disadvantaged backgrounds succeed.
What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?
Find someone who makes the subject exciting and understandable for you. Someone you click with. It makes communication so much easier.
