Science does not have to be hard or scary. Science can be fun and interesting. Let me help you navigate the world of Biology and Chemistry. I have loved Science since I was a child (a really long time ago), but I know it can sometimes be a challenge. I can help you with your work in a fun, friendly way. I also love music and sports in addition to Science. For my hobbies I rock climb, row crew, play golf, and I play bassoon in several chamber groups. I would love to work with you to help Biology and Chemistry be easier, more fun and as fascinating as they should be.

What is your teaching philosophy?
I believe that all students can achieve. I think that breaking large ideas or concepts into smaller parts makes them more understandable. I believe in tailoring sessions to a student's learning style (visual, auditory, etc.)
What might you do in a typical first session with a student?
Review goals for sessions. What does the student feel they need and what do they want to accomplish?
