I have been teaching science for the past eight years. I teach because I enjoy helping students overcome their academic challenges and gain an appreciation and deeper understanding of science. I especially enjoy working with students one-on-one so I have the opportunity to tailor the lesson or explanation to a student's own strengths and make it relevant to their background. By connecting the lesson to a student's experiences or presenting engaging learning opportunities, I have been successful in helping student's master new concepts and apply their knowledge correctly.

Currently, I teach AP chemistry and honors-level chemistry in the DC area. I have a Bachelor of Science in Environmental Science and a Master's degree in Chemical and Life Sciences both from the University of Maryland.
