Experience

I earned my bachelor's degree in Chemistry at Guilford College and received my master's degree in Organic Chemistry from the University of California at Santa Barbara. During my two decades as an educator, I have worked as a laboratory teaching assistant while I was a graduate student, and taught in both public and private schools. I have taught classes in Chemistry, Geometry, Physical Science, and Forensic Science. I have experience in tutoring students ranging from middle schoolers to college students and beyond in small groups, classroom settings, and on an individual basis. I truly enjoy helping students master concepts they previously found intimidating! I believe every student learns differently, and by discovering the learning style they like best, I can help them conquer any academic challenge. I incorporate study skills, problem solving techniques, and organization methods into each tutoring session, as these are skills that will help them as they progress through their entire academic career. I encourage my students to think creatively and ask questions, and I guide them toward understanding how a problem is solved as opposed to just memorizing facts. I am passionate about education, and I love sharing this with all my students. In my free time, I enjoy musical pursuits like playing the piano and singing with a choir.
