"Biology, Psychology, Chemistry, Criminal Justice & Forensics"
I am currently finishing up my Master's with certification in biology and am also pursuing a dual certification in special education. My certification coursework in biology is done and I am in the process of applying for state certification! I have always wanted to pursue a career in one of the numerous disciplines of biology.

"Lawyer and Tutor"
As I approach 30 years as a lawyer, I wanted to help others prepare for law school, the business of law, and, the proper course choices that are helpful for the LSAT, success in entering and completing law school, the Bar examination, and, your career. You can't start too early, and, who better to help than someone with decades of experience. I was educated in public school on the Connecticut shoreline, went on to Wesleyan, and, law school in Boston. I continue to maintain my law license a... ... More
"For the love of Science!"
In 1994 I was diagnosed with ADD. I graduated from high school in 1998 and have since gone on to receive my B.S. and M.A. During my student teaching internship (fall 2011) I worked directly with 10-14 students with ADD/ADHD. These personal experiences have prepared me to work with students with a variety of learning disabilities. ... More

To Whom this may concern:

I have enjoyed working with students during my time as a family physician. I have moved on into another field but am offering my knowledge/expertise in premed and the sciences for tutoring those interested in the field or having difficulty with classwork.
As a science major in undergrad and a physician, I have much to offer for those studying the sciences.
My schedule is flexible for tutoring students. Feel free to reach out if you are looking for help/advice with your studies.... ... More
I recently decided that I wanted to go back to school to allow me to broaden my future job opportunities. I am originally from Russia and have been in the United States for about fourteen years. While able to carry on an English conversation, when it comes to reading and writing, my skills are somewhat limited. I knew I needed to look for help.
After doing some internet searches, I came across WyzAnt. I spent some time reviewing the profiles of the English tutors in my area and decided to email three of them to see if any might be an appropriate fit. After careful consideration, I decided on Christy and couldnâ€™t be more pleased. Christyâ€™s prompt and professional response, especially the fact that she took the time to carefully read the finer points in my rather long email, sealed the deal for me.
During our initial consultation, Christy took extensive notes and listened intently to me as I explained exactly what I was looking to accomplish. When I finished, we together worked on a plan of attack. Improving my reading comprehension and speed, along with developing the proper mechanics in my writing were put on top of the list. Also, knowing that I will likely be required to take some form of admissions exam or standardized test in the near future, we have been working on my vocabulary, including roots, prefixes and suffixes.
Christy and I have been meeting once a week for ninety minutes since May. She provides me with homework each week, which we go over at the start of our next session before moving on to new material. That review at the beginning of our lesson has also helped to improve my conversational English.
Christy is always well prepared and punctual for our lessons. Any necessary communications between lessons have been easily accomplished through email, cell phone and text. Christy is not only knowledgeable and professional in what she does she is also a very compassionate person who is supportive and wants to see me achieve my goals.
I highly recommend Christy.
