Qualifications & Experience

Hello Parents and Students:

I have had the opportunity to tutor students from the elementary school to the college level and, irrespective of age or background, I have come to the same conclusions. A student can learn nearly any subject so long as there is someone willing to teach them in a way that grasps their attention.

In class sizes that average anywhere between 20-35 students, one can be certain that a teacher will uniformly deliver materials in a way that suits perhaps the majority of students. Unfortunately for the small minority, they are left behind to deal with dwindling grades and even worse, diminishing self-esteem. Less talked about are the majority that end up developing a false sense of security because they are able to "get by" through cramming and rote memorization. They may pass the exams and earn the grades but down the road they often find themselves hitting mental road blocks in subjects that they never took the time to set a sturdy foundation.

This is where my passion for tutoring comes to light. I believe it is critical for students to develop a strong academic foundation that will provide them with the tools to succeed regardless of the subject matter or who is teaching it. I make it my aim to address the learning needs of each student and teach in a manner that encourages them to realize their abilities and utilize study skills in future learning.

While working toward my bachelor's degree in biology, I was employed as an academic specialist and peer counselor for entering and continuing college students. I developed curriculum that helped struggling students explore multiple learning methods unique to their individual needs. The students I worked with increased their GPAs appreciably and improved by at least one letter grade on average. I would like to continue to assist in students' academic success. I have a strong academic background in biology and psychology, and believe that in applying my combination of compassion, experience and knowledge, I can create a fun and beneficial learning experience for your student.

My experience in tutoring extends over 11+ years and has encompassed subjects in mathematics, advanced sciences, and study skills. Specifically, my subjects include AP Biology, Biology, Chemistry, Physiology, Anatomy, Geometry, Algebra I and II and basic mathematics.

In that time, I have had the opportunity to work with students ranging from elementary school through the university level in both group and one-on-one settings. Tutoring continues to serve as a rewarding experience for me. I strive to help students enjoy learning in order to build the confidence needed to achieve their full academic potential.

I look forward to helping you achieve your dreams!

Judy is a fantastic math tutor. She helped my daughter build confidence in her pre-algebra and biology classes that led to her achieving A grades. She was very inspiring for my daughter and continuously emphasized continuous learning inside and outside of the classroom. We are very happy to have worked with her and I sincerely recommend her to students that are willing to put in the work.

Judy Gbadebo is a fantastic biology, physiology and genetics tutor. She not only knows the material back to front but also knows how to convey it to students effectively and even make it fun. She always tested me to make sure that I actually knew what we had gone over. She went the extra mile and made room in her schedule when I told her I had an exam coming up. She even gave me supplementary videos and reading material that greatly enhanced my learning and performance in medical work and classes. I give her my highest recommendation!

Judy is a pleasure to work with and a one-of-a-kind tutor. What I appreciate about her most is her patience and the time she takes to clearly explain the material until I fully understand it. She never rushes information, and makes it a point to set a firm understanding of the material from the start. Judy often goes above and beyond, even apart from our sessions, to provide supplemental material and encouragement before exams and quizzes. I can't wait to work with her again in my upcoming physiology course!
