My name is Danae and I received my B.S. in Biochemistry from UC Santa Barbara, one of the top research institutions for Biochemistry. I have done particularly well in organic chemistry, but I also studied and focused on biochemistry. Currently, I am enrolled in the M.S. Chemistry program at San Diego State University.
I absolutely love people and teaching: I am focused yet personable and easy to relate to. It is easy for me to get excited about science and help others visualize subjects that can otherwise seem daunting. My approach in teaching is to ask the right questions that lead each students to come to the correct conclusion on their own. I also see repetition as key to really grasping difficult scientific topics.
I have experience tutoring math to high school students, but I've also learned most of my approaches to tutoring through helping my classmates in college. This has given me an even greater taste for how different students learn. My approaches change according to the student I am working with. Science and chemistry courses in particular can be mastered by you with my help.
