I've been a TA for 2 years now, teaching and grading labs for both general chemistry and Biochemistry. Additionally, I've tutored for a wide variety of students in many subjects outside of chemistry, though have done extensive tutoring in chemistry fields as well. I generally tutor for World History, International Relations, Writing, Political Science, Chemistry (Inorganic, Organic, and Physical), Biochemistry, and many other subjects. I am a B.S. Biochemistry from the University of Delaware and I'm intending to go to medical school.
I'm very passionate about helping students do their best and get the best grades possible. It's unfortunate many students don't feel like their professors or TAs don't actually give help. What I'm hoping to do as a tutor is to mend that gap a bit with a mutually beneficial interaction.
I love tutoring most General Chemistry, Biochemistry, and International Relations type work. I have very strong depth and breadth in all these subjects, and always am willing to help students on these issues. I tutor best through example, either working through problems students have or talking with them about the work. I also am very good at helping students brainstorm essay topics or issues, and reviews on the subject. I prefer active learning over passive learning, lecturing is boring and tends to be a waste of time unless there's some interaction.
Outside Academia, I love to write and hike. I'm also an avid subpar cooker, so if you want to know how to burn eggs I'm your guy.

I love to write fiction and read studies and books on my free time. I’m also an avid hiker, runner, and kayaker. I used to play football in high school, I found this to be really enjoyable. My professional interests are the nervous system and carbohydrate science and the synthesis of complex glycans. I also have worked to the development of curriculums for children in the sciences and have worked with all ages towards both reading, writing, and science comprehension.
