I completed my undergraduate degree at The University of the Sciences in Philadelphia and at Thomas Edison State College in 2008. My degree is B.A. Natural Sciences and Mathematics. I completed my graduate studies at Temple University. I graduated in 2012 with a M.S. in Quality Assurance and Regulatory Affairs.
I enjoy learning as much as possible about the world through science and mathematics. I have a passion for sharing science with others and teaching in general. I tutor all levels of mathematics and many sciences. My favorite math topics are algebra and trigonometry. I love these topics because they were my first real guides into the sciences. When I learned algebra a light bulb illuminated for me and I suddenly felt like the world made sense through math. I love tutoring because I try to supply some of that same illumination for my students. My favorite sciences are chemistry and astronomy.
My tutoring style is relaxed but focused. I help students prepare a plan to achieve their academic goals, whether it be the SAT, a homework assignment or the next big test. I pride myself on my professionalism and subject matter knowledge. A typical tutoring session includes a planning portion, we will schedule out your study plan with and without me. I will offer lectures or explanations on the core concepts to help you understand why you are learning any one skill. We will spend the majority of the time working problems. You will leave each session with a multitude of carefully explained examples to help you study further on your own. I am easy to talk to and I will take the time to understand how you approach problems. Sometimes we will need to rewire your approach and I can help with that.
Outside of my tutoring assignments I work full time as a pharmaceutical chemist. I am a Philly sports fanatic, I love all Philly sports! I also spend a lot of time with my partner and our 2 year old daughter.
