I am working towards my PhD in Chemistry at Northwestern University where I conduct research in organic chemistry and teach undergraduate level organic chemistry courses. I have been involved in teaching organic chemistry labs and recitations for 3 years and been a personal tutor for 5 years. My teaching experience has given me insight into how students benefit from laying an early foundation in basic concepts to set them up for success in more advanced topics as an organic course proceeds. I have helped write problem sets and test questions for undergraduate level organic courses and will allow me to give examples of real problems a professor may incorporate into an exam. I always like to relate the material I am teaching to real world applications to give my students a new perspective on organic chemistry. Lets make organic chemistry less daunting and more approachable!
