I love working with students in algebra, calculus, and general chemistry. When it comes to math and sciences, I believe there are many ways to get the right answer. Thus, I always try to see and explain things from the student's viewpoint(s) and use his/her own reasoning methods instead of mine.
I earned my Bachelor of Science's degree in Applied Mathematics with a concentration in Chemistry from Marist College. Numbers and formulas have always been my passion and refuge. I love solving problems. Most importantly, I love knowing and explaining the why and how of every problem and concept. I look forward to working and sharing my passion for math and chemistry with you.
