I have tutored extensively since 2008 and have thoroughly enjoyed working with students to help them reach their potential and to achieve more than they thought they were capable of. Having recently graduated from UNC Chapel Hill with a B.S. in Chemistry with Highest Distinction, I know that hard work and dedication to your education can pay great dividends.

I have tutored students from middle school through college-level and had tremendous pleasure of helping over 50 students achieve their potential and dramatically improve their grades and test scores. Seeing the students I have worked with succeed provides me with tremendous satisfaction and drives me to continue tutoring.

I specialize in tutoring for standardized tests, including the MCAT, GRE, SAT, and ACT, and have scored in the 99th percentile on the MCAT, SAT, and ACT. I also tutor the sciences and can cover all science topics up to advanced college-level chemistry and biology.

As a science major and experienced tutor, I understand that the sciences pose unique and varied challenges to students. One of my primary goals is to meet students where they are, understand their specific needs, and develop an individualized plan that challenges them and helps them succeed. To this end, I do not follow a specific formula during sessions with my students. Instead, I work with my students to build a plan that meets their goals and helps them achieve success.

I look forward to helping you succeed in your studies!

Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

I understand that each student's situation and individual needs are unique. I work with students to understand where they would like to improve and then craft a study plan to help them achieve their personal goals. As a result, each session I teach is different because the structure of my lessons with students is determined by the students' needs and goals.

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

In my first session with a student, I have two main goals. First, I try to understand the student's situation and to learn as much as I can about what the student needs help with. Second, I want to work with the student to develop a study plan that we both like and that we both agree to stick to moving forward. I believe that achieving these two goals in the first 15 to 20 minutes with a student ensures that we are both clear about the goals we are working to achieve and how we intend to do so. After setting this plan with my students, I then like to get right into the material they would like to work on!
