I started teaching students as an undergraduate at the University of North Carolina Asheville where as a junior and senior I tutored freshman and sophomores in general and organic chemistry. Seeing the lights of understanding in my students eyes was what hooked me.
Teaching community college helped refine my teaching style and showcase the importance of keeping students focused on their goals while keeping classes interesting.
After earning a bachelors degree in chemistry from the University of North Carolina at Asheville I received my masters in biochemistry and molecular biology from Wake Forest University.
When I tutor I try to bring in real life examples based on what I know interests my student and keep students motivated by keeping them focused on their goals.
Helping students surpass me is the most rewarding experience.

I enjoy gaming, anime, and reading. Likely due to my scientific background my favorite genres in all three tend toward sci-fi. Promised Neverland and Lain are two of my favorite anime, with Sid Meir's Alpha Centauri being a favorite computer game.
