I graduated with a B.S. in chemistry from the University of Maryland-College Park, and also earned a M.S. in chemistry from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. I have six semesters of undergraduate level general chemistry teaching experience at UW-Madison. During my time in graduate school I also tutored students in chemistry for a few hours a week. I enjoy tutoring organic and physical chemistry, but I am most passionate about general chemistry because it provides the foundation for thinking about chemical reactions between molecules; the knowledge of which all later chemistry subjects rely upon. In my experience teaching and tutoring, a mixture of conceptual discussions and problem solving has been most effective for helping struggling students. In addition, I have found that relating chemistry concepts and problems to topics that are familiar in our everyday lives is a great way to make sessions fun and interesting. In my free time, I enjoy playing ultimate frisbee and basketball, and watching football, basketball, and baseball. I also enjoy reading, playing video games, and watching movies and television.
