I am an enthusiastic individual who enjoys learning and sharing that learning with people of all ages. I have been an active member of Americorp working with inner city pre-school children in Pittsburgh, and an avid volunteer at a learning center working with disabled children in the same city. I have student taught biology and chemistry-related classes at the undergraduate level, taught undergraduate freshman calculus, and taken a many classes in science and mathematics. I am experienced at working with Computers including the Microsoft Office Suite (Work, Excel, Publisher), and love using technology to efficiently advance learning. I have been working with WyzAnt doing One-on-One tutoring for over 3 years, and adapt my tutoring methods uniquely to each student I have as their learning needs require. While I typically do lessons in person, I can also provide online tutoring as needed to supplement lessons, or in the place of face to face meetings.
I enjoy making connections between things, and work my "day job" as a researcher and technician in the Chemistry Department of MIT, managing mammalian cell cultures and performing sub-cellular molecular imaging of neurons. I work to inspire my students to ask questions about the world and connect the topics they are studying to a larger picture of our existence. Please give me the opportunity to help you learn more about some of these subjects and how they relate to the real world!
