I have more than 10 years of experience in teaching and tutoring. I am great in problem solving and can easily approach difficult problems. Crash courses for exams are welcome. I am well-versed in advanced courses - MCAT Prep as well as Org. chem 1 & 2, and general chemistry, general physics, and courses for chemistry major.

I use an easy approach to AP chemistry, AP physics, and AP calculus.

I received my Masters Degree in chemistry.

I also majored in Organic Chemistry at the graduate school of Johns Hopkins University.
