I just completed a PhD in Chemistry at Northwestern University. I started teaching in a Big Brother Big Sister program in Florence, Italy in 2006 and fell in love with sharing my knowledge with others. I was the teaching assistant for several chemistry courses at Pepperdine and Northwestern Universities; as well as being involved in Science in the Classroom demonstrations for 3rd and 4th grades. I am eager to share my love of science with students. I am passionate about science and math at all levels and I am a down-to-earth and compassionate teacher. My tutoring style is adapted to each student to focus on the specific areas of improvement. One size does not fit all, so why teach that way! There is nothing better than seeing a student's eyes light up when problems come together, which is partially why I especially love word problems. In my spare time, I enjoy reading and going to art museums. I also try to attend as many ballets as I possibly can every season.
