I earned my undergraduate degree in Biochemistry from the University of Texas in 2012. Sometime between late-night excursions to the arcade by my apartment building and various (mis)adventures around Austin with my friends, I also somehow managed to complete an honors thesis on some independent computational chemistry research that I spent about two years conducting.

As my degree may suggest, my first academic love is Chemistry, and while I truly do love all the sciences, Chemistry is also my favorite subject to tutor. In addition to having been a volunteer tutor for both middle school and high school students over the course of my academic career, I have also been fortunate enough to have served as a teaching assistant for three quarters of introductory-level undergraduate Chemistry courses, both lecture and lab. When I work with students, either in groups or one-on-one, I enjoy the challenge of trying to re-frame the material in a manner that appeals to their interests as much as their prior knowledge. While making science relatable can certainly be a tall order, as these are tough and sometimes discouraging subjects after all, I find it tremendously rewarding to see a student at last discovering connections between the strange and seemingly disparate concepts encountered in these courses. Finally, as a true believer in the beauty of numbers and the written word, I am also more than happy to aid students in Math and Writing!
