I love tutoring and really enjoy teaching and helping students grasp chemistry concepts. You will become a chemistry all star if you decide to work with me! I am known for having the ability to make the most complex concepts easy to understand. I am a very patient person who is able to approach topics in a myriad of ways so that the student is able to have an optimal experience. Most importantly, my students walk away with confidence!

I was a post-baccalaureate student in the premedical program at Columbia University in New York, NY. In 2005, I received a BA in Human Biology at Stanford University. I know how to motivate people!

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 graduated from Stanford with a degree in Human Biology. I have years of experience tutoring in Biology, Organic Chemistry, and Physics. I love tutoring and I want to make sure that my students develop a greater understanding and appreciation for each of these subjects.

Chemistry

I have been a chemistry tutor for high school and college students. I take pride in making sure that the students I work with grasp the concepts and enjoy the process!

Organic Chemistry

I took organic chemistry as a student at Stanford University, then completed a year of Organic Chemistry at San Francisco State as a member of the Postbaccalaureate Premedical Program. I have received straight As. I am currently an organic chemistry tutor at San Francisco State and I have received excellent reviews from the students. I have also completed Biochemistry, a course that is organic chemistry based, and I received an A.

Volleyball

I have trained athletes for the past 10 years in volleyball. I love coaching and my past experiences have enabled me to be an effective volleyball trainer. I am a two time Olympian in Indoor Volleyball (2004 and 2008). I received a silver medal in the 2008 Olympic Games. I won two national championships in indoor volleyball while at Stanford University (2001 and 2004). I was a 4 time All-American at Stanford and I was named the 2005 Collegiate Female Athlete of the Year. I competed on the national team for 10 years. I currently do private coaching. And I have coached at the junior level extensively.
