I am currently attending the University of Washington, Seattle, pursuing my Bachelor's of Science in Chemistry with ACS certification and a minor in mathematics. Hoping to research and synthesize medicine/pharmaceuticals to treat blood disorders.
I previously earned my Associate's of Arts through Pierce College, with strong focus in chemistry, biology, and mathematics.
I tutored for three years through Pierce College, focusing on chemistry, biology, and mathematics. I was a mentor in this position, and trained new tutors that were hired for similar subjects. I created multiple resources specified to organic chemistry due to the ratio of students to tutors to provide assistance.
Through Pierce College, I also was hired as a TA for two years for general and organic chemistry. I was a mentor to this position as well, training newly hired staff members on ways to conduct group activities to promote learning and engagement with sciences.
I thoroughly enjoy tutoring chemistry, because it is fascinating to consider how such small interacting pieces of matter can be so specific and have dynamic changes in properties with seemingly minor changes. This is especially evident when studying stereochemistry, comparing medicines that can be life-saving or toxic based on the orientation of the molecule.
My hobbies include drawing, music, jogging, painting, and finding new places to nap.
I thoroughly enjoy videogames that engage critical thinking skills, strategy and planning (not a fan of Call of Duty or anything along those lines...).
Available to tutor in person near Everett or Seattle.
