I graduated from Oregon State University with my Bachelor of Science in Chemistry with a focus in organic and biochemistry, and I graduated from Indiana University with my Master of Arts in Chemistry and Education with a focus in organic and biochemistry. I have accumulated over 7.5 years experience tutoring students from elementary school up through college. In the past, I tutored in math, chemistry, grammar, writing, and biology. I also have 4.5 years experience teaching chemistry as assistant instructor, at the universities I attended, as a high school chemistry/physical science teacher, and as an instructor at Northwest Vista College and Incarnate Word University. While I can tutor all pre-calculus math, chemistry, grammar, and writing, my favorite subjects to tutor are chemistry, organic chemistry, and biochemistry. I am most passionate about chemistry because it factors into all aspects of our life from cooking and fireworks to chocolate and cars. It describes the mechanics of both the micro and macro world and is the foundation to most other sciences. I am firm proponent of an education due to it opening doors of opportunity to better ones life. I always prompt students to obtain the answers through their own knowledge and abilities. As I tutor, I believe that it is my job to provide a student with the tools to succeed on their own. In my spare time, I enjoying reading, hiking, rock climbing, crossfit, mud runs, dancing, and pool.
