I am a certified teacher with more than 2 decades of experience teaching and tutoring elementary, middle, and high school math and science in the United States, South Africa, and Egypt. I have a bachelor's degree in analytical chemistry from Tshwane University of Technology in South Africa and I tutor grades K-College.

My tutoring style:

I am an enthusiastic teacher who is passionate about STEM. I adapt my teaching style to my student's needs, going slow and repeating myself if needed or moving faster if a student's needs requires that. I enforce the topics we learn together by reviewing them or finding alternative ways of explaining if needed until the student passes with flying colors.

Success story:

One of my favorite success stories is helping a high school student who struggled to pass chemistry, along with most of his other subjects, and was ready to quit school. I soon realized he had undiagnosed dyslexia. I worked with his family to get him the services necessary and to show him different ways of decoding test problems. Today this student is a pharmacist.

Hobbies and interests:

In my free time, I like to use my kitchen as my lab, where I can experiment with different plant-based recipes. I also teach yoga, like to go work in my vegetable garden,  hike in the beautiful Catskill mountains with my dogs, and play the piano.
