I am a STEM tutor with 3+ years of experience in college-level chemistry, physics, mathematics, and standardized test strategy. I also have experience and enjoy instructing orgo, biochem, biology, statistics, coding, etc. I am passionate about communicating deep empirical truths to learners of all ages. I graduated from UPenn with a Master of Science in biophysics, and I'm pursuing a career as a data scientist in health and/or biotech. I strive for excellence and look forward to working with you!

When I am not tutoring I like to keep up with the latest in cutting-edge research, create Portal levels, listen to silly podcasts, and play board games with friends.

Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

My teaching philosophy centers on identifying the right questions to ask, breaking the problem down into manageable steps, and focusing on comprehension of the fundamental concepts at the heart of the problem.
