I have always enjoyed teaching others. As a scientist, my job is to not only explore a new topic deeply but to be able to spread that knowledge onto others. Tutoring is one of the ways I can do that. Whether it is understanding the math or figuring out how to balance an equation better or why you did something in a lab for the lab report I know that I can help you improve your understanding and approach for the subject, not just help you improve your grade while also improving your grade.
I am a graduate of the University of Illinois at Chicago where I was a TA and graduate student earning my masters in chemistry. I did research into DNA damage detection, or to put it simply, I did research on how cells find problems with their own DNA and ways that that goes wrong. I enjoyed my time in Chicago: good food, good friends, and you do get used to the cold winters.
For undergrad, I stayed relatively local at Franklin & Marshall College. I can honestly say that I loved my time there where I was involved in student leadership, rugby, and research. Sometimes I even hung out with my friends.
As for now, I am transitioning to living back in the Philly area and thought it would be an excellent idea to tutor. I still play rugby and try to find time for friends and family that have missed me while I lived in Chicago. This has been an excellent journey and I am more than happy to see how this new chapter proceeds.
