HELPING STUDENTS HELP THEMSELVES BY THEIR GRIT, NOT THEIR LUCRE

“EducationEquity” is an efficient, IT-enabled adaptation of both my for-profit tutoring of HighSchool/College students & my not-for-profit training of college peer-tutors.

Name of non-profit arm of my business, OnCallTutor LLC:          EducationEquity Foundation*

Thumbnail description of my skills & experience

  • trainer of college STEM peer-tutors (currently appointed @ Hunter College)
  • STEM tutor (over 2250 hours of experience in tutoring @ HS & College levels:  Chemistry, Physics, Biology, & Calculus)

I thus am familiar with students’ most frequent STEM prep deficits, and how to help students over them.

  • STEM classroom teacher (over 2500 hours of STEM teaching experience in urban public schools)

I thus am familiar with the educational weaknesses - but also potential strengths - of disadvantaged kids.


  • Master's Degrees in 1) Science Teaching (Hunter College) AND 2) Public Health (Rutgers/UMDNJ)
