I graduated from college with honors degrees in both Molecular Biology and Dance. I spent a few years involved in cancer research up in Seattle and then moved back to Los Angeles where I found opportunity to work with two modern dance companies and a biotech firm. I just came out Brooklyn to work part-time for a local theater. While I was in college, I tutored junior students in classes I had passed and excelled in. This includes, but is not limited to, biology, biochemistry, chemistry, organic chemistry, and anatomy/physiology. I am also familiar with exams such as the ACT, SAT,MCAT, ASVAB and GRE.

I tutored science through my university for 3 years. I also have experience tutoring middle and high school students. My boyfriend is a science teacher at a local high school, and I have worked with his students before.

I love tutoring. There is something incredibly rewarding about inspiring development in another person. My ideal student is one who is eager to find creative ways to master difficult subjects. I have a knack for being extremely flexible and creative in a learning environment. I live Cobble Hill, but I spend a lot of time in the Crown Heights and Fort Greene areas. Commuting is not an issue for me. Looking forward to meeting you!

I can also teach private dance lessons with over 25 years of training and 12 years of professional experience including Cirque Du Soleil, choreographing music videos and teaching high school dance.
