I am currently working for Genomatica Inc. as a process development associate. I completed my Master's in chemistry from UCSD in December 2013. I have a full year of teaching experience as a teaching assistant in general chemistry and organic laboratory. I am well educated and knowledgeable in all aspects of chemistry. I also did very well in all of my science and math courses as an undergraduate and graduate student, and believe I am very capable of teaching these subjects. My teaching experience has taught me to be very flexible with the style of teaching because each student has their own best way of learning. Overall, I am a very kind and patient person who is always enthusiastic about science and the human potential. I believe you will highly benefit from my tutoring skills and practices. I have successfully taught 15 students in the past two years. All have received a B or higher in their class. I prefer to take students who need an ongoing teaching relationship, but can sometimes accommodate single test prep.

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.

Chemistry

I graduated from Iowa State University with a Bachelor of Science Summa Cum Laude in Chemistry. I have been a teaching assistant for one year at UCSD during graduate school in general chemistry and organic chemistry lab. I have completed coursework for my Master's in chemistry in graduate school where my grades remained exemplary.

Organic Chemistry

I was one of few students who received over 90% in my undergraduate class and laboratory. I tutored my classmates and friends extensively in this subject. I was a teaching assistant at UCSD for the undergraduate organic laboratory where I was responsible for writing quizzes and evaluating my students on a weekly basis.

Physics

I have a B.Sc. Chemistry degree Summa Cum Laude from Iowa State University. As part of the chemistry curriculum, I took and excelled in classical physics and mathematics. Although it is not my specific major, many of the skills required in physics in setting up equations and working with formulas are also what makes me a successful chemist.
