I am a graduate of Stony Brook University with a degree in Biochemistry. I tutored all throughout my college career both in groups and as an individual through the Women in Science and Engineering program. My tutoring philosophy is getting to know how my students learn and then tackle any problems using their strengths. I can explain things a hundred different ways and I won't give up until we feel confident, together, that a concept is understood.
