I am a credentialed chemistry teacher with significant one-on-one tutoring experience. I graduated summa cum laude from Brigham Young University with a B.S. in Chemistry Education. Following graduation, I taught chemistry and math for three years at High Tech High International, a project based learning public charter school in San Diego. I am now taking some time off to be a stay-at-home mom to my six month old son but miss working with chemistry students.

As an undergraduate, I worked as a teaching assistant for several college chemistry courses and was awarded "Teaching Assistant of the Year" twice for my work. I was also hired by Nebo School District in Springville, Utah to start an after school science tutoring program for high school students. I am creative and energetic about making chemistry accessible to all levels of students. I am also young, fun, and good at making students feel comfortable around me. Please contact me if you are struggling at all in your chemistry class. I can help!
