In May 2020, I earned a bachelor of science in chemistry with honors along with a dual minor in animal ecology and anthropology at Iowa State University. With a strong work ethic and extreme dedication, I was accepted into the PhD program in chemistry at the University of Washington in Seattle where I will begin this journey this fall. I have been an active varsity tutor for two months; however, I have two years of hands on teaching experience where I was a general chemistry teaching assistant at ISU. My overall passion for teaching was highlighted this past semester where I was rewarded an excellence in teaching from the chemistry department along with receiving an ACS award in inorganic chemistry for my undergraduate research. I primarily focused on general chemistry on varsity tutors; however, I also tutor subjects related to physical chemistry such as quantum mechanics, thermodynamics, and kinetics. I throughly enjoy tutoring physical chemistry because I love the math involved with this field along with the practical applications physical chemistry can offer such as molecular spectroscopy. My teaching philosophy is to assess the current understanding of the student and build on the current knowledge they have learned. I am very patience with my students. I make sure to break down the material taught in the class and remold it into helpful "chunks" of information that is hopefully easier for the student to digest. I am extremely adaptable as well where I offer different strategies such as visual/tactical approaches based on the needs of the student. Outside of academia, I watch Tv shows, play video games, and enjoy taking walks in nature. I have a genuine passion to teach chemistry and if you have any further questions feel free to contact me!
