William ...and college. I tutored SAT prep, a subject that causes ire in the eyes of many a college applicant, but was honestly one of the more "fun" parts of my application. It was great to see how my students could eventually come around to seeing standardized tests as a puzzle, rather than a chore. I've since spent several semesters as an Introductory Chemistry TA during my undergrad at Amherst College, where I majored in Biochemistry...

I am a hard science geek who loves to read, and I want to help students learn to love all subjects and succeed at them too.
