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 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!
