I am originally from Rochester, Michigan and I graduated from Michigan State University (Go Green!) with a BS in Chemistry in 2015. I then went to University of New Haven in Connecticut and got my MS in Forensic Science in 2017. That summer, I packed up and moved to Chicago where I currently work as a certifying scientist in a toxicology lab. I love math and chemistry and would be happy to share my knowledge and love for these subjects with you! I enjoy working with the student one-on-one to discover how they learn and creating study strategies to cater specifically to them. Every student is different!

Q & A

What might you do in a typical first session with a student?

I would get to know the student a little better and figure out what their interests are. That will help me understand the student's approach to learning. I would also tell the student about myself and things that we might have in common so that the student feels comfortable with me.

How can you help a student become an independent learner?

To me, becoming an independent learner means becoming excited about what you're learning. I would help the student see the positive in what they're learning and show them why it matters.

How would you help a student stay motivated?

I would help a student stay motivated by offering positive feedback and letting them know when they are doing a great job. I often find that positive feedback in any setting is enough motivation to keep me going.

If a student has difficulty learning a skill or concept, what would you do?

I would look for different ways to teach the student that skill or concept so that they can understand it. All students learn differently. Sometimes students just need to see that skill or concept in a fresh light.
