In 2013 I graduated from Pitzer College with a double major in molecular biology and theatre, while also gaining a minor in mathematics. I first started educating others as a teacher’s assistant in high school and tutored organic chemistry while in college.

I specialize in tutoring mathematics and the natural sciences (biology, chemistry, and physics) for students of all ages. Whether you need assistance mastering concepts for your classes, preparing for a standardized test, or simply want to gain additional knowledge of a subject beyond your teacher’s curriculum, my ultimate goal is improve your understanding of math and science so that it can aid you in your future achievements.

I look forward to working with you to help you succeed in your educational pursuits.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Biology

I majored in Molecular Biology, and worked in an epigenetics laboratory at the Keck Science Department in Claremont, CA for 2.5 years. I also had a 6 month internship in Tuebingen, Germany working in a genetics laboratory at the Max Planck Institute.

Chemistry

Education in General Chemistry, Organic Chemistry, Physical Chemistry, and Biochemistry. Also have had previous experience tutoring Organic Chemistry for the Keck Science Department in Claremont California.

Genetics

I was a molecular biology major at Pitzer College which required an undergraduate course in genetics to complete. In 2013, I worked in a laboratory in Germany that focused on researching the evolutionary basis of speciation using a genetic approach. Additionally, I worked in an epigenetics laboratory at Pitzer College to determine how histone modifications can alter gene expression and chromatin structure.

Organic Chemistry

I was a molecular biology major at Pitzer College which required an undergraduate course in organic chemistry. I received received an A in the course and scored above 90% on the national ACS organic chemistry exam. Also, I tutored organic chemistry students during my junior and senior years at Pitzer College.

Physical Science

I've completed college courses in Physics I: Mechanics, Physics II: Electricity and Magnetism, General Chemistry I & II, Organic Chemistry I & II, Physical Chemistry, and Biochemistry.

Physiology

I took Vertebrate Physiology at the Keck Science Department in Claremont, CA, and have studied the MCAT material, which includes several concepts in physiology.

Precalculus

I minored in Mathematics at Pitzer College, which includes Calculus I, II, and III.
