I am young enough to remember
what it was like to have problems understanding the topics I teach.
It is just that sense of revelation and insight that has led me to
become a teacher. I have studied how young students think and
learn, and I use that knowledge to develop effective methodologies
specific to each students' learning styles.

A Brief Introduction:
My name is
Oettinger, and I am the
Pascack Tutor. I was
raised in the Pascack Valley, and attended local North Jersey
private schools. I ultimately received my Bachelor of
Science, in Environmental Science--Soil & Water Chemistry, from
a prestigious NJ university.
After college, I attended a
training program to obtain an Emergency Medical
Technician (EMT) Certification. Shortly thereafter, I put my
knowledge of emergency medical care to work, and I became an
instructor for the American Red Cross.
Over the course
of seven years, I taught thousands of students valuable
lifesaving skills in classes such as CPR, First Aid,
Babysitting, Lifeguarding and Preventing Disease
During that time, I also got involved in
tutoring middle and high school math, science, and SAT prep. I
enjoyed my tutoring experiences so much, that I decided to
attend Graduate School to get my Master’s degree in Science
Education. I have since begun my career as a certificated NJ
high school science teacher.
