I am an experienced tutor in high school and college level courses for Chemistry, Algebra, and Pre-calculus. I'm patient, friendly, and methodical, and also offer a flexible schedule

I came to Boston to study in Organic Chemistry. I am currently employed as a Scientist working on DNA technology. I continue to tutor because I enjoy working with students and providing them with more real-life examples of science.
