I have always loved Math and Science, and my desire to learn has not yet subsided. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Biology, and a Doctorate in Biochemistry. I enjoy teaching, training, and tutoring students of all levels in Math and Science. Although each student is different, I treat every case with equal conviction and effort – from the most humble to the highest aspiring goals. Boredom and frustration are the source of nearly every student’s struggles. Consistently my students say I clarify the most complex problems, transforming impossibly tedious and confounding coursework into an exciting and manageable challenge. I do this by relating the latest discoveries and personal anecdotes to the subject matter, making the ancient, esoteric theories tangible and fresh. When I am not reading and writing about science, or planning strategies to make math and science more accessible, I am playing with my dog, watching zombie movies or systematically sampling every slice of pizza in Boston.
