Hey fellow scientists!
My name is Carolyn. I graduated from Beloit College in 2016 with Honors receiving a Bachelor of Science in Biochemistry.
Starting in the fall of 2017 I will be attending the University of Washington studying Medical Laboratory Science!
I am a very active person and I love doing almost anything that gets me outside! My favorite activities are horseback riding, running, and tennis! If I'm not doing something active, I also enjoy cooking, reading, painting and sketching.
Academically, professionally and personally, science is my cup of coffee. I love talking about science, doing science, and most of all TEACHING science! I started working as a Teaching Assistant and Tutor for Organic Chemistry, Biochemistry, and General Chemistry my sophomore year at Beloit and continued to do so until graduation! I have continued to tutor chemistry and biology post-graduation.
I use guided-inquiry approaches to help students understand the material at hand. I am a firm believer that everyone can do science, and I believe in you! I like to present the material in new and creative ways that help students learn how to think and solve problems like a scientist. I not only can help students master their coursework, but I can also help students with study skills and testing strategies that carry over into other courses as well.
If chemistry or biology is getting you down, have no fear. Contact me today to set up an appointment and be on your way to success in science!

Q & A
What is your teaching philosophy?
The materials I use vary from student to student and session to session, but I always use a whiteboard/chalkboard (whatever is available) and colored writing utensils. I sometimes use model kits, playout, textbooks, and computer simulations (if necessary).
