I am a patient, friendly and knowledgeable chemistry tutor with six years of experience tutoring and teaching.
I enjoy helping students develop the knowledge, skills, and concepts to understand the world of chemistry and to succeed in their classes, exams, and careers.
I have a bachelor’s degree in Chemistry from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst and a master’s degree in Education from the Boston Teacher Residency.
Since earning my bachelor's degree I have taught science to a wide range of students, in both formal and informal settings, here in Massachusetts and abroad. I began as a teacher in an after-school program at a small non-profit organization in Cambridge, and later became the program director at a second, similar organization. I spent a short time teaching high school chemistry in Nepal, before coming home to earn my master's degree through the Boston Teacher Residency. In the Boston Teacher Residency I taught 7th grade biology and geology at the Timilty Middle School. After graduating, I traveled to Africa, and taught 10th grade chemistry at a boarding school in Somaliland. Through all of these experiences I have been happiest when I can work one-on-one with a student and support them in the learning process.
As a tutor, I strive to see things from my student's point of view, to explain concepts clearly, and to break down complex tasks into simple steps.
Chemistry is a complex and difficult subject, but having an experienced tutor can make it enjoyable and rewarding.
I look forward to working with you!
I have a bachelor's degree in Chemistry from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. I have a Masters in Education from the Boston Teacher Residency with a concentration in science education, and I have experience teaching chemistry at the high school level.
I have a bachelor's degree in Chemistry from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, I have a Masters in Education from the Boston Teacher Residency with a concentration in science education, and I have experience teaching chemistry at the high school level.
While earning my degree in chemistry, my concentration was in physical chemistry.
I took three semesters of honors physics, one year of physical chemistry, and one year of graduate level advanced physical chemistry. My senior research dealt with the contribution of electron tunneling to the reaction mechanisms of light-activated inorganic metal complexes. I have experience tutoring physics at the high school and college level, as well as tutoring graduate level physical chemistry.
