I graduated from Harvard University with a degree in African History and Economics, and I was also a Pre-Medical student, completing coursework in biology, chemistry, organic chemistry, and physics. While at Harvard, I tutored college students and high school students in advanced Math, Chemistry, and Economics.

For the past six years, I have been a high school science and social studies teacher in Miami and New York City. While living in Miami, I tutored with WyzAnt, primarily in chemistry. After leaving Miami, I spent several months in South America teaching English (I speak Spanish and Portuguese).

My experiences as a tutor and teacher have given me the opportunity to learn about various teaching methods, and I feel confident in my skills as a teacher in both the one-on-one and group setting.

I love sharing the power of education with others, and I look forward to working with new students!

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Organic Chemistry

I took an intensive organic chemistry course at Harvard and passed with an A. I subsequently tutored in organic chemistry while living in Miami. Furthermore, I developed teaching experience with high-level science concepts while teaching high school chemistry.

Piano

I have been playing piano for almost 20 years. My training is classical but I have experience playing jazz and contemporary piano as well. I sight-read music well and can teach you how to do the same. I have a basic knowledge of music theory so as students move past beginner basics I can begin to share some of the basics of music theory.
Music is really my passion, and I play piano almost daily. I would love to share what I know about piano and music with others.
