I am a 2019 graduate of the College of Wooster. I earned a Bachelor of Arts in Chemistry and have worked in pharmacy and the coatings industry post-graduation. As the "math-minded" sister, for years I have helped both my older and younger siblings (I am one of 10!) with math and science homework, studying, and understanding mistakes on past assignments and tests. While in college, I worked for three years as a lab assistant and tutor for the introductory chemistry laboratory students. This entailed being present in the lab, answering questions and troubleshooting with students during experiments. I also held office hours to assist with general questions and studying, preparing for future labs and assignments, as well as going over previous assignments and offering areas of improvement. I easily created rapport with my students, and I still keep in touch with some, getting updates on their recent academic successes. With the majority of the students I assist being in middle school, high school, and early college, I have the most experience with this age range and feel very comfortable with the subject material.
I am passionate about making science more accessible to everyone. I never saw myself as particularly talented in the math and science fields, but my math teacher in 8th grade changed that for me. I hope to provide that positive experience with math and science for others, and while I don't expect to turn everyone into a future Chemistry major, I do hope to at least turn it into a manageable challenge as opposed to an insurmountable one.
