From an early age, science, nature, and language have fascinated me, and I strive to share this fascination and love of learning with my students. I earned a Bachelor of Arts in Chemistry with a Minor in Biology from Boston University, a Ph.D. in Chemistry from The Scripps Research Institute, and Postdoctoral credentials in Chemistry from Harvard University. During the course of my formal education, I served as a Teaching Assistant in General Chemistry, a Teaching Assistant in Introductory Biology, and a Teaching Fellow in Physical Organic Chemistry. I also participated in an outreach program in graduate school, the aim of which was to give disadvantaged high school students the opportunity to participate in scientific research. After my time at Harvard, I worked as Research Chemist specializing in science at the interface of biology, chemistry and physics. Currently, I work as a tutor and as an Adjunct Professor of Chemistry. I am passionate about teaching science and mathematics, as I believe that strong literacy in these areas is crucial for understanding not only our modern world, but also our past and possible futures. My favorite teaching tools include using real-world examples and simple demonstrations to illustrate seemingly abstract concepts, such as atmospheric pressure and barometry. Hand-in-hand with scientific literacy, I encourage excellence in verbal and written communication. In editing, proofreading, and teaching writing to others, I strive to improve clarity, precision, and conciseness. When I am not teaching, I enjoy writing, drawing, listening to music, and outdoor activities with my son.
